Current:
I have a report with hard coded filters on:
1. Community
2. PayPeriod

This worked fine while I worked out report issues. But now the report is complete accept I want to add parameters.

How can I create the parameters above and have them work across all datasets?

Let me know I need to clarify anything for you.

Thanks, Merry Christmas

What issues are you having?

Can you create a parameter?

What do you mean across all datasets?

By default, all parameters are AVAILABLE to all datasets - but you need to reference them in the dataset.

See http://www.sqlchick.com/entries/2012/1/8/relating-parameters-filters-in-sql-server-reporting-services.html for more information. Hopefully that will help.
