In SSRS.
I would like use the out site url to the report link.
How can I transfer the value to the url?

"//myserver/report.php?mater=<SSRS_value>".

For instance matter_code is the value in SSRS report. How do we pass the matter_code variable so that the out site PHP report renders the info for that specific matter.

Sql server Report service
Thanks

Thanks for answer.
I try to put  "//myserver/report.php?mater=<matter_code>"
When I click the link, it just give me "//myserver/report.php?mater=<matter_code>"
I try to put  "//myserver/report.php?mater=@matter_code"
When I click the link, it just give me "//myserver/report.php?mater=@matter_code"

I need the SSRS variable( "matter_code" ) can transfer.
Like "//myserver/report.php?mater=5555"

Please help.

Thanks

Putting the variable using the FX option, makes no difference.
I try to put  "//myserver/report.php?mater=Fields!matter_code.Value"
When I click the link, it just give me "//myserver/report.php?mater=Fields!matter_code.Value"


Everything after the = sign is passed as text not as a variable

Please help

"//myserver/report.php?mater=" & Fields!matter_code.Value

Is there another way to edit the link, like viewing the code behind the report? You may be abbr to remove the quotes that way?

="//myserver/report.php?mater=" & Fields!matter_code.Value

Yea. It works, try to put "=" before the string.
Now works.
Thank you very much.
