SSRS 2008 r2 - Present user with fields to amend and use amended values in report

SSRS 2008 r2 - Present user with fields to amend and use amended values in report

I am using SSRS 2008 r2. I have a group of users that need to amend address details before they are printed from a report in CRM onto a pre-printed form. However we do not want to save these amendments into CRM. I have set them up a report that prints directly from the report screen onto a pre-printed form however they are not able to amend anything in the form in that format.

We have tried working with export to Word but the data moves around all the time and it is to be printed in specific spaces to appear on the pre-printed form in the correct place.

Is it possible to run the report and present the user with the address fields in a text box for them to amend, and then use the amended details as the address in the final version of the report?

Ideally we would want to be able to print directly from the screen after running the report.

I have tried many many searches and have not been able to find any problems similar to this. I appreciate that this is not the normal way to use information in a CRM but this is data that needs to be changed for legal reasons on these specific forms.

I have tried using parameters to pull the Existing address fields but because the parameter value already exists the report does not wait for user input and renders completely. Please help as I have been struggling with this for days.
