In reporting servcies, is there a way to do text filters similar to Excel 2007 where you click on an arrow on the column header and you have a list of checkboxes with the different items containied in that column. If you're familiar with this feature, it has an option to "Select All" or you can check one or more items and then the spreadsheet will only show the rows that have that item in that particular column.

Thanks,

Reporting Services doesn't have built-in interactive filtering like Excel, but you can use report paramters to filter either in the dataset query or on the dataset output, and available parameter values can be displayed as checkbox lists. It doesn't look as nice, but you might be able to accomplish what you need to do.
