Experts:

I have a main summary report using 2 parameters that the Users Input. I have a Text Box in the top right corner that I'd like the Users to be able to Click on and drill to another Sub Report that contains the DETAIL.

How do I PASS the parameters from the main report to the SUB?

I'm mainly looking for instructions when using SSRS 2008.

Thanks

Hi

I understand that you want to jump to another report (subreport usually is part of another report so I just want to clarify that). If yes then:
1) right click the text box go to text box properties.
2) Click action on the left side
3) Select go to report
4) Select your report
5) Click add button below and select parameter name (it will show you parameters which exist in the report you selected) and provide value.

That should be all you need to do.

Hope that helps
Regards
Emil
