pass a querystring to a report

pass a querystring to a report

pass a querystring to a report

I have report viewer on an asp.net 2.0 page with a
Sql report from sql 2005 embedded in the report viewer.
I thought I could just put report parameter in the query string and it would just pass the parameter to the report but that did not work.

For instance I have a report the has a parameter- ID
I thought I could just create a link to the report like

That did not pass the parameter to the report.
How can I do that?


RE: pass a querystring to a report

No, unless you tell the report what each parameter value is is can't just guess. Have you set up any parameters on the report? How are you calling the report and displaying it? An example of your code will help.

RE: pass a querystring to a report

I don't have any real code just using the asp.net report viewer with the server url to my report in the viewer
As I stated above "I have report viewer on an asp.net 2.0 page with a Sql report from sql 2005 embedded in the report viewer."
This all works, so long as i enter the parameter when the page is displayed,  but I would like to populate the report parameter with the URL String parameter value
