I have a report with two report tables. I was wondering if there was a way to filter data on one table by clicking a link from another (this is an example, so using the URL Action).

For instance, if have a name column on one table and I click one of the records (Bob), the other table, on the report displays Bobs address.

Employee  EmployeeNI
Bob       JP79740 (Name is a link that has been clicked)
Gary      JP74790 

5 Woodland Gardens (Bob's Address)

I understand I can use sub reports, drill through or drill down but the above is just an example. The actual report's a bit more complex.

I know this type of thing is possible on applications like MS Access where clicking on one record filters the data in another form or sub form

Just wanted to know if there's an equivalent way in SSRS without using a parameter drop down.

You can use ssas cubes which will give you ability to drildown to detail data without passing any parameters

OK thanks, I didn't think there was a way with what I'm using without cubes.
