Have SQL Reporting Services (2008) up and running. Reports work great.

Have a Microsoft Access project (.adp, version 2007) that I would like to be able to integrate some of these reports from. Its no problem to create a .NET form with a report viewer control to view the report.

I "could" write a generic viewer that takes a report name and parameters as parameters and launch a report from Access' VBA environment that way. However, I'd PREFER to have something that maybe already exists? Am I missing something, either from Microsoft, or even a third party?
