    Does anyone know a good site/resource to watch/read/listen etc. to learn how to create such a report in Reporting Services 2008 ?

    Just a simple report which loads combo box from a filed in a table,

    and then a selected value is sent as a parameter to the dataset

    which loads a tablix below from another table or view. As simple as that.

    I spent 10 hours and going NUTS right now. simple text box for param = ok. but can't find where to make it DROPDOWN and how to load with values from a DS..

    I have no problem doing it in 2005, but either they overcomplicated it in 2008, or my brain got overheated at my new job... something is not right..

    For example, I have no clue and help failed to help how to get to the

    Parameters Properties dialogue box.

    Brothers in SQL,

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR POSSIBLE HELP!

    Try this link on MSDN - it has 5 tutorials for using parameters. All these tutorials are a good place to start. It's what I did before attempting any development and got me off and running in no time!
