SSRS Side by Side Reports

Posted on 2014-03-20
Last Modified: 2014-03-22
I have just finished creating a series of SSRS reports and while I was showing the users the reports they had commented how they would like to see some of the reports side by side in the same report as opposed to having to run each report separately. Several of the reports take up only a portion of the screen and could easily fit either side by side or on top of each other. Is it possible to position reports side by side using SSRS in one report? This would be W2008 R2.

Try to put two tables inside the same rectangle sitting side by side in one single SSRS report.

So I should be able to just make the text box big enough to hold two reports and put one on top of the other? How will it handle the datasets? The are different for each report.

Yes indeed but side by side not "one on top of the other"

" How will it handle the datasets? The are different for each report. "

I suggest you choose one of them and copy the data set(or create new one identical with the one) from the second report, then copy (or create new) Tablix from second report and place them side by side.

Looks like subreports are the way to go with this. The trouble is one of geometry. There is only so much space on the screen.

Thanks for the tips.
