One more question in continuation...What if the parameter value is not chosen in front end ..Then I want all values in dropdown to be passed...I guess the filter should be IN..and there should be  a check in frontend that if no value  is chosen--all the values in dropdown will be concatenated and passed.. Is this the way to do it or is there any otherway...

Sounds like you are using a combo box on a form to select filters for your report, correct?  So if nothing is selected the table should display all records, correct?

What you need to do then is make your parameter a "MultiValue" parameter.  There is a checkbox on the parameter dialog box of your report.  Then you can pass a string array to the parameter.  Change your "=" to "IN" in your table filter.  This should work for a single value or multiple (all) values.  Just pass a string() array to the parameter with all of your desired values (or one).

Use this in your filter value.

Do you have a picture of an example or a bit more detail of what you are doing?  Perhaps an example of the MS Access functionality you need?

Ah I see.  Well you can't build this functionality into the local report itself.  Once the report is rendered, it is in its final state.  You can enable interactive sorting on columns to reorder them but that's about it.  If I needed to do this, I might use comboboxes on the form for each column and refresh the report on the combobox.SelectedIndexChanged event.  Or select the values of each combo box and refresh the form on a button click.  Again, you can't change the report once it's rendered, but you can manipulate the back-end data and refresh the report as much as you need.
