SSAS & SSRS; Excel 2007 Report Action with Parameter

SSAS & SSRS; Excel 2007 Report Action with Parameter

SSAS & SSRS; Excel 2007 Report Action with Parameter

Using SSAS & SSRS 2005; MS Excel 2007.

I am attempting to add a Report Action to a cube that passes a parameter to a SSRS report.  I have a Customer dimension with 2 attributes; customer number and customer name.

The action is defined like this:


Target Type: Attribute Members
Target Object: Customers.Customer Number
Parameters: UrlEscapeFragment( Customers.[Customer Number].CurrentMember.UniqueName )
The SSRS report ATTEMPTS to launch in the web browser; however, the parameter is not being passed correctly to the report.  I expect to pass an integer value only to the report, but part of the actual parameter description is being passed.

Here is the url that is generated by SSAS:  


The "Customers" and "Customer Number" literals are being passed as well as the integer customer number.  All I want is the actual integer customer number.  In this case it is 2780.

Use Name instead of UniqueName.
