I have an SSRS report with a subreport. Each report has two parameters. And, the parameters are the same. One pulls data from a work center, while the other pulls data from manufacturing orders.

If I run either the main report or the subreport, with one value for each parameter, the report(s) runs fine. But, if I choose say every value in each parameter, no data appears.

The entire project is based on SQL stored procedures that I created. I tested those stored procedures in SQL, and they display data accurately when I run the same tests that I ran in SSRS. So, the problem is definitely in SSRS itself.

I have been reading today online about how developers place the following expressions within the main dataset of the SSRS report and subreport respectively:


Also, the “verbiage” online says to modify the stored procedures’ parameter “@-symbols” to contain the following: ‘,’. I have done all of this, but I still get the same result—blank data upon choosing multiple values. Also, SSRS gives off a warning shown at the end of this e-mail.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Since join(Parameters!ParamName.Value,",")
returns a comma separated list of values, you can not use '=' operator for comparison.

Try this:
if you want to include the list in a where clause

SELECT ..... FROM .... WHERE (<column_name> IN (@parametername, ','))

if you want to display the list then you can use
= join(Parameters!ParamName.Value,",")
in your expression
