    Hi all,

    I'm using Telerik Reporting Designer. I created 2 reports (ParentReport and ChildReport).i made a navigation from ParentReport to ChildReport using action property with some parameters. i need to know how to use these parameters in the ChildReport and also use this parameters to filter a datasource in the ChildReport.

    Hello Mohamed,

    You may use the approach from the attached reports:

    Main report:

    1. Add a MultiValue report parameter (itemParameter) from type String.

    2. Its AvailableValues will come from a CSV DataSource which contains one column - Item;

    Child report:

    1. Add a table whose records will come from a CSV DataSource which contains two columns - Item and Value;

    2. Add a report parameter itemChildParam (MultiValue is set to True) which doesn't have any AvailableValues.

    3. Set the following Filter to the table:

    - Expression: =Fields.Item

    - Operator: IN (because of the multivalue parameter)

    - Value: = Parameters.itemChildParam.Value

    Go back to the Main report:

    - Add a textbox and set the following Action:

    Navigate to Report -> Select report source -> enter the child report location -> Edit Parameters:

    Parameter Name: itemChildParam

    Parameter Value: = Parameters.itemParameter.Value

    Progress Telerik
