I have a report that needs to be viewed in CR viewer 2008

I have the report to be saved with data, but when I view it in the viewer it then does not allow me to change the number. (this is under Current Data Set and the )
I have read some articles saying to change the report from a command to saved data, but cannot understand or find a way to do this.

Basically I need to be able to view the report but also change the order number it is looking at and thus this should change details alos.

Any ideas please

RE: Change button in Viwer is greyed out
