SSRS 2008 and passing parameters to subreports...

SSRS 2008 and passing parameters to subreports...

SSRS 2008 and passing parameters to subreports...

Okay, I've been modifying a previous guru's RDL files via both Report Builder (for look and feel) and Notepad (for parm data lists)... but only since February...

Essentially, the main report has a list of comma-delimited values used to look up data in the OLAP Cube. The data was in the reports like this (real code can't be shared, sorry):

CODE -->

{ Value01,
Value05 } 

Everything has worked well up until recently, when a number of the required values were added that contained hyphens:

CODE -->

{ Value01,
Value05 } 

The reports started "breaking" and research showed it was at the point where the hyphen was--so "Value-0-3" was interpreted as "Value", an incorrect lookup key. This was solved after some research and mentoring by adding square brackets as follows:

CODE -->

{ Value01,
Value05 } 

However, many subreports were involved and those required the parm-passing to be edited from

CODE -->

Parameter1 = Field.Parm.value 


CODE -->

Parameter1 = "[" & Field.Parm.value & "]" 

I just haven't figured out how to change it for the reports where:
a. the parm is the whole list, not a single value, and
b. the parm is passed to a complicated sub-report that includes .Net or javascript code.

Any advice will be gratefully received and attempted...
