How do I lookup a field, compare to two tables and then enable / prevent access to Drill-through report?

Sample Report Output
On the left is a list of teams. The rightmost column contains a count of errors, if you click on count of errors you will drill-through to a detailed report that lists individual errors.

The report works and is fully functional!

However, I am trying to apply a security model that will restrict users to only view detailed error data for their own teams.

To illustrate: members of the Core Team can view details of the 943 errors but cannot view details of any details for the Adult Antenatal team.

Question:
I have created a lookup table that lists all users and the TeamCodes they can access.
I also have a table that lists all TeamCodes e.g. VHCAB and their corresponding Team Names e.g. CORE

Any thoughts on how I can look up the CurrentUser, lookup the team name compare it to two tables and validate if they can access the drill through or not?

Since you have the tables, you might join them in query.

SELECT
 Errors,
 Errors.Team,
 Users.UserID
FROM Errors
 LEFT OUTER JOIN Users ON Errors.Team = Users.Team
 AND Users.UserID = @UserID

It'll add parameter UserID on the report.
Set the default value of parameter UserID =User!UserID (built in field)
-> set the parameter ashidden.

Now UserID on your dataset has value NULL, if the user doesn't have access to the team data, and value current report user id if the user has access.

Next add expression to the link and font color,
=Iif(isnothing(Fields!UserID.Value), "Black", "Blue")
and link
=Iif(isnothing(Fields!UserID.Value), Nothing, yourlink)
