I have a multiselect parameter for customer.  Is there a space limitation on how long the string can be in SSRS?  I have 3400 records, the average is a length of 36.
After selecting all  of the records, nothing is returned in the texbox to visibley see
what was selected. It also takes a very long time to process. Any suggestions?

Hi,

For SQL server the limit is 128 (sometimes 116)

Are you trying to print all the selection from a parameter that the user selected and print them in a text box? In that case you do something like this:

Join(Parameters!Product.Label, ",")

Where Product is the name of the parameter.

Hope this helps.

No, my string is very long if they select ALL and the text does not get populated does not populate the text box. The parameter itself works, it is just that they can't see that they selected anything, the text box remains bland, thanks
