Do you need to have enterprise edition of sql server 2005 in order to generate data driven subscriptions.  Or does anyone have a work around using standard edition that will allow queries returning 0 records to not email a 0 record report.

It should be fine with a standard edition:

This is a quote from the site you just sent me.....Doesn't look like I'm able to do this???

Standard Edition
Standard Edition is designed for a production server in a single-computer configuration, which centralizes server-side report processing, storage, and tools. Choose Standard Edition if you do not need to support a large number of users, and do not need to support the dynamic distribution of reports to many users. The following features are not part of the Standard Edition:

Report Server Web farm deployment
Security extensions, including support for custom or forms-based authentication
Data-driven subscriptions
Support for more than 2 processors

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

You're right... that's what it meant to be, you must have an Enterprise edition

I'm facing the same issue. I want to preload the cache in RS 2005(http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms155876.aspx), which requires data-driven subscription but that's only available to SQL server 2005 enterprise edition. Does anyone know a walk around solution to this?

I found an article: http://www.codeproject.com/database/DataDrivenSubscriptions.asp but didn't quite get it because it's for RS 2000. Let me know if you get it working.

I just ended up creating an sql server job that executes a stored procedure which creates an html page with the information and then emails it.  I just formatted it to be like a report.  Then inside the sp i can say if there isn't any records don't email.  Don't know if this help you.  It got me by for now.
