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.

http://YourServerName/Reports

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 )
