Why is my SSRS report showing old data?  
I have a summary report with sub report.  When I export to excel from sub report I'm getting correct data but if I export from summary report I'm getting old data.

Is your SSRS server caching data at regular intervals, say a day?

Are you viewing/exporting from the Report Viewer or from the preview on the Report Designer?

The report designer always caches your data, so once you've run it once, it doesn't refresh from the database. There's a few articles around on auto refreshing these. I believe if you look in the folder that the rdl is saved in, there's also a .data file. I've heard (but never tried to prove it) that if you delete that file, the designer will then refresh the datafile and give you the latest data.
