Experts:

Is it possible to have a BIDS report run / PROCESS automatically, then SAVE the data so that when a USER opens the BIDS report..that the data is already populated in the report?

Or does BIDS always have to process the data at the time a report is opened by the USER?

thanks

There are a couple of solutions.  You can set a report to cache and use that data for a period of time, or you an set the report to run to a schedule, and then the user will see the data from that snapshot.

You can configure this once the report is deployed on the server by usin Report Manager.

Go to the properties of a report, and then execution.
From here you will see the caching option (Cache a temporary copy of the report) and the snapshot option (Render this report from a report execution snapshot )
