    Here is what I'm trying to do.


    I have a stored procedure that takes five parameters: Start, End, Name, Type1, and Type2. I need to generate this report using (Start, End, Type1, Type2) for each selected Name, which is a multivalue parameter on the top-level report. e.g., each detail section or subreport for Mark, Amy, Nick, etc should use the same values for the other parameters.

    How do I go about doing this?

    Alright, so I came up with a solution for this, but I'm not sure if there's a faster / better / built-in way to do the same thing I'm doing.

    I created an inner Salesman class that just has Name and Id fields. I set the top-level report's DataSource to null to make the NeedsDataSource event fire. Then, I grabbed Parameters["Salesmen"].Label and Parameters["Salesmen"].Value and put them into pairs in their respective Name and Id fields (so that labels[i] and values[i] formed a coherent Salesman object), then added those objects to an ObservableCollection<Salesman>. I set the report's DataSource to the ObservableCollection, and set the subreport's DataSource to ReportItem.DataObject.


    THEN, I changed the parameter on my storedprocedure to take @salesman as ReportItem.DataObject.Id. All other fields from the storedprocedure can just take Parameter.$PARAM_NAME.Value, since they are (or seem to be?) inherited directly from the main report.

    Hello Andrew,

    You may test to use MultiValue Report Parameter in a SQL query and after fetching all the relevant data to group the report by Fields.Name. This will generate one group for each Name, and will render a separate detail section for each group, which is how I understood the requirement.
