SSRS + multiple subscriptions with different default values

I have a report built in SSRS, and I was wondering if there is a way to set up a subscription that will run reports for each of the available options for a given parameter.

ie: One of the parameters is VendorID. At the moment, there are 11 VendorIDs, so I'd like to have a subscription that will run 11 reports, one with each VendorID as the default value. Then later, if a new VendorID is added to the database, the subscription would run 12 reports etc.

Hi... have a look at my solution in the following question.


In summary, you will need a version of reporting services that supports data driven subscriptions. As part of the setup, you write sql that will return a list of vendorID's which you use as a parameter for your subscription.

hope this helps

Hmm, are data driven subscriptions only supported by SQL Server Enterprise editions?

Unfortunately, only Enterprise and Developer editions suport it according to Microsoft.
