I have a report that receives a country as a parameter. This report should be only used by the users of the specific country meaning that people from Brazil should only see Brazil in the report, etc.. For this purpose I have created a different report "frame" for each country that sends the country parameter to the "real" report. These "frames" are located in different folders in SharePoint so the security is handled by the folders in SharePoint. The problem is that in order to distribute the different frames to the different folders they are created in separate projects, all belonging to the same "master" solution. But the "real" or "main" report is not shared between the projects. Each one needs to be deployed to each project making it difficult to maintain. If I need to make a change to the main report, I will need to do it as many times as countries I have.
The other way I thought is to have all reports in just one project and have them deployed individually to their respective folder so I only have one version of the main report but then the deployment is a pain because each of the frames makes me change the project's deployment folder before deploying the frame report so it goes to the right one.

Is there a way that I can define a report as "shared" so different projects can use it as a sub report without copying it into the project's folder? Or is there other way to handle this?
