Hi Experts,

I have a report.

I noticed when I open a report.rdl file in VS2013 I see the main part of the report.  When I do a deploy of that .rdl file and copy the link into a browser a Selection Screen appears letting the user select from drop downs.  When the user hits enter they see the report that I see when I open the report.rdl file.  So how do I see this selection screen when I open the report.rdl file?  There is a type fix that I need to do in the selection part.

Thanks for you help.

The selections are parameters on your report. When you open the report in SSDT (VS2013), you should see (typically on your left hand side pane) a tree view with datasources, datasets and parameters. Those parameters come up as selection values at runtime (or during "Preview" which you can access via the tab next to your design palette).

Expanding the "Parameters" node will give you access to all the parameters that you see in the selection screen. Right click the parameters to access their properties.

If they have static values, you should be able to see them in the properties. If they come from a dataset, you will have to apply your fix to the procedure/query/underlying data that populates the dataset.

I'm sorry I am unable to give you exact navigation pointers because I don't have SSDT in front of me but hope it helps.

Hi and thanks,

Can't believe all one has to do is right click the Parm select Parm Properties and change the prompt text.

Great...
