I save my completed report to the server which has parameters where the users have a drop down selection criteria for the parameters.
This works fine - however, if I then take the report from the server and save to my desktop and then open it locally on my PC I get prompted for the password as if the report is still o n the server. When I put the password in then all works ok and the parameters work as expected with the drop downs. However, here is the bit I do not get - if I open the report locally and decline to put in the password and click cancel on the prompting box I can still run the report but the parameters do not show any drop down values - they have to be entered manually. Why? and how can I get round this.
