OK,

I have been trying to put this off at work, but it's now become a report that they need for planning purposes.

I need to create a very large matrix that has between 200 and 250 columns across the page and can have between 100 and 150 rows.


What they want is to be able to click on any number(in a cell) anywhere in the matrix and to display the detail behind that number.


Creating the Matrix and populating it is not a problem, my problem is adding the 'Subreport Action' to each cells. Is there a quick way of doing this or do I have to set it up manually for each one ?

Thanks

If you are using a matrix report, you will only have one cell per column group/row group intersection to set it up on....

    Rather than a subreport, I would approach this as a click-through report with the secondary report using the same dataset as the matrix but filtered by parameters to the specific values of row and column; the parameters can be passed easily through the "Action" properties to open the detail report.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Firstly I'm going to recheck the requirements, because I seem to remember that the column headings aren't all the same grouping i.e. I think they go something like

    Last Month, Current Month, Next Month, Year To Date, Year +1, Year +2, Year +3 Etc and then under theses headings are 6 sub headings.

    So with this in mind it may have to end up as a Tablix rather than a Matrix, but I'll do a bit of analysis first.
