SSRS default value select all


  • In a new SSRS 2008 report, I want to be able to allow the user to select which report they  would like to see generated by selecting the report name from a dropdown list. This is a multi-valued parameter and the parameter name is called 'report'. I would like the default value to be for all 5 reports to be selected.

    All 5 reports will be on the 'main' report. There will be no subreports. Each report will have its own unique matrix and the matrix will be visibile based upon what is selected in the parameter called 'report'.

    My question is how can I make the 'default' value for the parameter called 'report' have all the reports selected?

     Normally to get all multivalued parameter values selected you create a dataset and run a query against a table. However in this case, there is no table to query. The user just selects what report(s) they want executed. 

    Thus how can I set the default value to select all the parameter values selected?
