I am having problem defining parameter value from one report to a drillthrough report.
From one item in a table report (the origin report), I wish to open a target report and supply it some information through its Parameters. This appears to be a simple case of a drillthrough report as described in this documentation page 'How to: Add a Drillthrough Report Action'.
What puzzles me is that, when defining the Action in a TextBox of the origin report, the Edit Parameters does not suggest any parameter name , as opposed to what the documentation describes.
Here are my steps, from inside MSVS 2015:
1. Open the origin report Design view, select a textbox - Properties - Action.
2. Open 'ReportSource' menu, Select 'Type name' and select the target report type class.
3. Open the 'Edit Parameters...' dialog, hit 'New' to create a new entry and drop-down the 'Parameter Name' combobox of this entry: it is empty; it does not contain the Report Parameters defined in the target report.
The documentation says:
Click Edit Parameters button - Edit Parameters dialog appears. Click New. In the Parameter Name column select the name of the report parameter in the drillthrough report. In the Parameter Value, type or select the value to pass to the parameter in the drillthrough report.
What I am missing ?
I am using Reporting Q3 2014 SP1 from MSVS 2015.
