    But how can I read the parameters in the report???

    I don't know if i understood your question, I guess you want to show in the report the parameter value passed on the URL.

    To do that in a textbox, and continuing with the example I posted, you should put an expression like the following in the textbox value: =Parameters!CustomerID.Value

    Or something like this:

    ="This is the report for customer " + Parameters!CustomerID.Value

    Hope this helps

    So. as I understand I need to define the parameter on my report (Report-> Report Parameters ->Add)
    But without Prompt
    Am I right??
  7. ruipedro.sousa New Member

    Yes, you have to define the parameter on your report, but it can have a prompt.

    I did it but it's not work!

    I defined in my report a parameter caled testP (No prompt) with default value "aaa".
    The report contain a TextBox which it's value is the testP parameter value.
    When I open the report on the SQL report:


    It's print to me "aaa" on that textbox. When I send value on the link:


    It's still print to me "aaa" and not "bbb"

    What's wrong????

    Depeding on you caching options a refresh, on the Reporting Services toolbar, may help.

    If not... I don't know, sorry.

    How are you calling the reports?
    If you use Front End Application to call it then pass parameter value from there
    In Crystal Reports, you can do from VB as follows
    CR.Parameters(0)="Parameter value"
    See if you are able to do the same in SSRS also


    Failing to plan is Planning to fail
