Report Services 2008 pass parameter and render format

Sqlserver 2008

I've created a report that summarizes project detail. I would like to provide a link for my customers, that automatically sets the parameter and render format (pdf).

I would like them to click on the link and dynamically create the pdf, without going to the report viewer. Can this be done?

I've written a vb app for this before because there were over 20 paramater choices for a user to make, but I was hoping I could do this one all in a link, using rs codes maybe.

I am afraid you cannot just use reporting services for doing this.
thanks
