Intermediate SSRS Reports Page

I have added two previous E-E questions as reference here for my current attempt at an intermediate screen for ssrs.
By using the previous two questions, I was able to work my way thru four complicated stored procedures as datasets for my report- (reservation/confirmation) and as parameter filters for my report.
I am creating an Intermediate Reports Parameter Page, basically which mimics the reporting services parameter screen, but is a custom asp page with all of the same parameters: start and end date, clientid and eventid available from two separate drop downs, and three optional parameters.

I am having trouble calling my .rdl SSRS report from this intermediate page:
Attached is the code I am using but, when I step thru, it always takes me to the Root directory of the reportserver.
Can anyone help?
My .rdl report takes seven parameters and i think Im calling it correctly.
Basically, Id like this logic:

If Page.IsValid then
     response.redirect(reporturl) & params
else
     'error!'
end if

Thanks in Advance.

If DropDownList1.SelectedIndex > 0 Then
   sb.Append("&ddClient=" + DropDownList1.SelectedValue.Trim())
End If
If DropDownList2.SelectedIndex > 0 Then
   sb.Append("&ddEvent=" + DropDownList2.SelectedValue.Trim())
End If
If TextBox1.Text <> "" Then
   sb.Append(String.Format("&txt1={0}%", TextBox1.Text.Trim()))
End If
If TextBox2.Text <> "" Then
   sb.Append(String.Format("&txt2={0}%", TextBox2.Text.Trim()))
End If
If TextBox3.Text <> "" Then
   sb.Append(String.Format("&txt3={0}%", TextBox3.Text.Trim()))
End If
If TextBox4.Text <> "" Then
   sb.Append(String.Format("&txt4={0}%", TextBox4.Text.Trim()))
End If
If TextBox5.Text <> "" Then
   sb.Append(String.Format("&txt5={0}%", TextBox5.Text.Trim()))
End If
 
 
Response.Redirect(String.Format(reportServer, sb.ToString()), True)

Have you tried just outputting the URL, so that you can check that it looks valid?

Another option is to consider using the webservice to render the report in HTML, so that you can check it's valid and then just write to your response buffer?

rob-
thanks for the response-
Can you expand a little on that?
I am having a tough time with the string buffer; i dont know why.
I cant seem to trap any values at all.

Thanks

rob-
You were correct - I had the path wrong.
Maybe I should have asked this differently- since Im new to SSRS.
I would like to send my Intermediate page, with the seven parameters TO the ssrs report, bypassing the parameter page and launching the report with these entered values.

Im trying to concatenate the parameters onto my url but I cant get it working-
Do you see anything wrong with my syntax?

From what Ive read:
1. you have to disable the parameter prompts from the report side.
2. in the url in the Response.Redirect, I would like to hide the toolbar and the parameter fields.

Thanks

You should look at a URL like:

http://localhost/reportserver?/ReportPath¶m1=1¶m2=2&rs:Command=Render&rc:Toolbar=false

Make sure you have the questionmark, as the page is /reportserver.
