I have a store procedure that has a parameter of varchar(max). this parameter is use to build the where clause for an "IN" statement. example user provides one of the following"
ABCD, ABBB, ADDD
and so forth. or they can pass as returns
ABCD
ABBB,
ADDD
The store procedure works. Problem is the parameter when passing through SSRS. If I leave as is. The comma delimited way works. but user can't really see the list and their list may not be comma delimited. When I change the data type in the report parameter properties to "allow multiple values" the stored procedure doesn't like it. I get error:
"must declare the scalar variable "@parameter".
My guess its trying to send as multiple parameters as oppose as one string.
Hope this make sense. Any ideas? using SSRS 2008 and SQL Server 2008
