I have a report I created in SSRS 2005.  When I launch it through a URL a dialog box comes up asking if I want to save or view the file.  Once I click on "view" I get an error saying: Action Cancelled, Internet Explorer was unable to link to the Web page you requested. The page might be temporarily unavailable.   but it then opens the page in a new window.  Any thoughts?

You get that prompt when you try to run the report or when you are trying to export the report to another format? If you get this trying to run a report, post the URL you are using.

here is the URL:
"http://Localhost/Reportserver?%2fReport+Project1%2fRMR_FullReport&rs:Format=EXCEL&" + "rs:Command=Render&RMRNum=" + obj.myCursor.current.RMRNum + "&statusid=0&partnumber=All&vendorid=0"

I used the same format but changed the variables to run one of our reports and no problem...very strange. Doing a quick seach on google didn't yield any answers either. I read one forum thread talking about the error (not ssrs though) being related to the hosts file but I just don't see how that could be causing this issue. Sorry, not much else I can think of to suggest. Perhaps someone else has run across this before

Thanks for the input.  Its strange, it opens up the dialog and the action cancelled window stays there but the report opens in a new window.  I guess I'll leave the question open n case anyone has some more insight.

This turned out to be a service pack/hotfix issue.
