All Posible parameters. should be on one table with Foreign Key. Then have a query that uses the first parameter to filer the values from the second table

These should be helpful

You should be able to do it in one proc.. But that is a design question on weather you want 1 proc or 2 procs to handle this process

All the option have to be in a table
With these headers

Country   States_Providence    City
---------  ---------------------   ----------

then you set the boxes to a query like this

Select States_Providence from TableName Where Country = @Country

Where @Country is the parameter entered by user
for city it would be

Select City
from TableName Where Country = @Country and States_Providence = @States_Providence

I dont have Access to SSRS here.. but when you build a dataset you should be able to create these filters

But you create the table and just add filters to the dataset you should be good
Look at this link
