Thanks again for your help - you are a star!
Couple of questions, forgive me, I'm still learning.
If I copy and paste all of the above into the SQL pane to create a view I get a couple of messages back:
First I got "The Query Designer does not support the USE ReportServer SQL construct." If I OK that I get "Line 1: Incorrect syntax near 'GO'"
So I experimented and took out the "USE ReportServer
GO" bit. I got another message saying SQL does not support the CASE construct - I've seen this before, I think, so ignored it. It returned the 8 fileds of data - yay! (I thought...)
However, when I go to save my view I get "View definition includes no output columns or no items in the FROM clause". Bummer. So I fiddled a bit, putting "dbo." in front of all the from bits (as you had this in your previous statement). Still no luck... I notice that no daigram of tables links is created like in the previous example - presume this is related to the error message.
Can you (or anyone) spare the time to help a bit more? Thanks again!
