Adding a navigation list to report

555 Views
Last Modified: 2011-10-19
i've used the navigation tab (table->properties) to make "quick links" to various sections of a report...

i'd like to do something similar...
i'd like the navigation pane to show a list of items based on fields!items.value
i tried adding the field to the navigation tab, and it correctly prints out the first item in the report... however, i want to see a complete list of items in the report.

can this be done, and if so, how?

You can add links that allow users to open Web pages or other reports, or jump to another location within the same report. Reporting Services supports three types of links: Bookmark links - jump to other areas within the report.
Drillthrough Report links - jump to other reports.
Hyperlinks - jump to Web pages.

Looking at the screenshot you should be able to see both items in the document map. Are the item numbers in the same table or is that 2 different tables?
