SSRS 2008 The property 'Valid Values' of report parameters 'MyField' doesnt have the expected type.

I am trying to create a parameter field for an SSRS2008 report. The field in the table is defined as bigint. In SSRS I can only set the parameter type to integer. Whenever I try to run the report I keep geting this message "The property 'Valid Values' of report parameters 'MyField' doesn't have the expected type." Is the difference between integer to bigint causing this error? I cannot change my table so is there any way to get this report to use this parameter field?

Hi ,
Just use data type TEXT in the report parameter.


BIGINT to Varchar is an Implicit and should give problems, anyway you can always cast or convert in the SPs.

If creates problem then use Float.

Because float has longer range than int.

Either one worked. It is just strange that all the field types are not available.
