In a SSRS 2008 report, I will have between 1 to 30 different small ssrs reports that will be executed in a specific order. All the reports will pass the same parameter values to each report. Due to my requirements, I have the following questions to ask:
1. Would you show me how to execute the reports in a specific order?
2. I want each report to appear on a new page. This would include placing the report headers on the top of each page. Would you tell me how to make each report start on a new page? Is this determined by each matrix that is loaded to the report?
3. I have heard that you can export different reports to excel from the main ssrs report onto separate tabs on the excel workbook. Can you tell me how to accomplish this goal?
4. When the users chose to export the different reports to a csv file and open the csv file in excel, will the data appear on separate tabs in excel? Can you tell me how the different reports will look when they are exported to a csv file and opened as an excel file?

One way to do this, if it's an option, is to create a report template (say with the report parameters built in), and the subreports with same. Then you can drag and drop, and you're off to the races. Or are you intending that each child report open in its own window?

The reports do not need to open in separate windows. The purpose of the ssrs is only for extracting data.

Yes the 'a report template (say with the report parameters built in), and the subreports with same' is an option.

I do not know what you mean by the statement you mentioned above. What is the 'report template' and how do you set it up in ssrs 2008?
