I have a 'ssrs' 2008 report that needs to call several other reports with the same parameter values. To meet it looks like the best way to accomplish this goal is to use subreports. Thus do you think subreports is the best option or are there other ways to accomplish my goal?

If I use subreports the following link:

says I need to use 'a parameterized report '. Thus can you show me how to setup 'a parameterized report'?
In addition for all the subreports that are setup, can I pass different parameters to each subreport or you they all need to have the same parameter values?

I typically recommend against sub reports. You can have different data regions on the same report that use different datasets or share a dataset. A table, list, or chart is a data region.

A parameterized report just a report that has parameters. Since you mention parameters in the beginning of the post I assume you know what that means.
