Tweaking SSRS Parameter Location

I've been asked to left align all the parameters ON THEIR OWN LINE (except for the date ones).  Like this...

Organization:
Dates Between [.....] And [....]
Initiative:
Type:

At the moment the Dates are split over 2 lines (see picture) and I want the Initiative on it's OWN line.  How can I force these parameters onto their own line?  I'm guessing I'll have to do it in the xml.  


Please, please point me in the right direction.  Thank you!

This is not possible.

There are at least two possibilities however.
- You could create your own page with custom parameter controls with asp.net, utilizing e.g.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms153586.aspx. Of course, requires a lot of work.
- Or you could publish your reports in SharePoint - if possible. In SharePoint ther are more possibilities in report publishing - and how the parameters are rendered on screen. Parameters can be shown e.g. on right, each parameter on it's own row, if you choose the show the reports in own window. Could attach here a screenshot if you need tomorrow.

With SSRS it's impossible directly. You can modify .rdl and css but you only are able to affect on the parameter order.

How the parameters are rendered on screen - depends also on the screen resolution.
One nasty tweak could be to add space to the required parameter labels with SQL.
This way one parameter would have so much reserved space that there wouldn't be room for the next parameter on the same row.

I'll try adding spaces to the labels in the the drop-downs and see what happens.  Thanks!
