I have a report that returns a big result set (100s of pages long). Is there a way to make the first page generated (rendered) first for faster response time? The next page should be rendered only when the user tries to navigate to it.

I am sure someone must have done this before. Can anyone shed some light on this, please?

Not directly, at least not with SSRS. You'd need more of an interface to pass down parameters for rowcounts and starting rows to a proc which would restrict the data being passed up. ASP.NET or something similar.

You might be able to put page navigation buttons on the report (clickable images) that call the same report with a specific page number and have the paging logic in your SQL query (Stored Procedure).

BUT: you would not be able to export the report to excel / pdf etc and get anything more than the current page.

The buttons would have a "Go to Report" action and have logic a bit like this in the expression for the value of the "Page number" parameter of your report.

The "Page back" button:
=IIf(First(Fields!Page.Value, "DataSet1")>1,First(Fields!Page.Value, "DataSet1")-1,1)



The "Page forward":
=First(Fields!Page.Value, "DataSet1")+1



Of course, you would need to include the page number in your dataset for this to work and your Query would need good fast paging code to make this worthwhile.

This does work, I have used it myself.

    Thanks for your suggestions. My query is kinda notorious, and that is the reason I am looking to choose/render data in chunks. I guess I don't have many options Sad

    Thanks anyway.
