Afternoon.

I'm currently working on a data retirement initiative within my organization. We are retiring the data from 200ish application to a data repository. One of the things we're working on is a way for the users of these apps to be able to still view this historical data. 1 person could possibly need to view multiple sets of data.

I had started creating a SSRS that lists all applications a person can see and then had the idea of setting a dynamic subreport( as you know and I didn't know, this can't be done!!).

So, my question is, is SSRS an option for the front end? Or, do I need to build an ASP.NET front end with a report viewer control? Seems like this might be the best route.

Thoughts, suggestions!?

Thanks in advance
John

My first thought would be how often and how many people need to view the historical data? If one person might view it twice a year, I'd go the simplest route to present the data (SSRS would work fine). Any factor might be how important/critical is this data? For example, will you receive a fine if you can't prove/show the historical data to auditors or government regulators?

Just a couple thoughts,
Rob

Thanks for the reply.

I think it will be viewed quite often by many users. Is Ssrs even an option for a front end? I'm thinking not as a user will want to see all reports they are legible for. That's why I'm thinking an asp.net front end with a report viewer control that display ps whichever report(application) they are wanting to see.

Take a look at the Report Manager interface. You can create folders for organization; setup security so users can only run their reports. I think it will do what you want without having to create a custom front end.
