SSRS 2008 Jump To Report

Jumping from reportA to reportB in SSRS 2008 works fine.

To go back to reportA from reportB, user can click Blue Back Arrow (which is not there anymore since IE 8) or Right Click on second report and then click Back, which works fine.

But, the user wants me to put a textbox on reportB, that they can click, that will take them back to reportA. Fine, I did that by doing a Jump To reportA from reportB, BUT, it takes them back to page 1 of reportA. NOT GOOD. I want them to Jump TO the page of reportA that they originally Jumped From.

Can that be done ????

Is there someway to duplicate what the right click and clicking Back does  ??

You might be able to use JavaScript to go back one page in history ( history.go(-1); ).

"user can click Blue Back Arrow (which is not there anymore since IE 8) " 

Isn't it hidden by some IE setting then?  On my machine with Win7, IE9, I still have the blue back button.  Another way to activate IE's "back" functionality is by hitting the backspace key.  Or, if the user has a multi-button (.e. more than two) mouse, it may be an option to set one to activate the back button?  It's convenient for surfing as well :)

Can you create a text box or a custom graphic, so when users click on it, they go to the first report?
like what's in the bottom of this article...

I dug around on internet and came across this java command:

="javascript:history.back(1)"       Very similar to yours....

So I used GoToURL in my Go Back textbox with above java code and it still did nothing.

then a MIRACLE....    

Someone suggested that above will not work if called while in vs 2008 while creating your report. You must upload to report server then try.

I did that and above javascript worked perfectly. It brought me back to the first report and brought me back to the exact page I jumped from. Works the same way that the missing Blue Back Arrow worked.

Since your suggestion got me going in the right direction, I gave you the points.

Thanks for all the other suggestions....
