    I need to add an invoice number text box on an invoice report but haven't no idea if this can be done or not? The report has many filters that are selected before running the report. Once the report is up I need there to be an updatable text box that the user can enter in an invoice number and then download the report with that value included in the download.

    Really need your help as soon as possible.

    Thanks,

    Sean

    SSRS does not let you have fields in a report that can have values typed into them. Using SSRS the only want to "make" this happen is to have a parameter that allows the user to enter this value and then you include the value from this parameter in the report.

    Thanks. That was what I thought but wanted to double check with you all. Unfortunately, the big wig Claims person believes it can be done after the report renders. Says she has seen it before. Can't point me to an report she is talking about that has that functionality. Won't question her judgment. So I am left in redesigning how SSRS works or programming a new platform. Of course, each impossible. Welcome to the world of the arrogant pompous management elite.

    If you are preparing to get into the HTML code, yes it can be done. I also have seen it done but I don't have any details. I suspect that the report includes a text box with a particular name and there is probably something like some javascript that runs after SSRS has finished rendering i.e. client side but from code that is in the SSRS web site. Of course, that code will also need some context as well to identify what the input is related to. If you know any good web developers, have a word to them.
