Interactive Sorting, Document Maps, and Links (Report Builder 3.0 and SSRS)

In Web-based environments, you can add a number of features that let your users interact with reports. Your users can change the sort order of values in your report, show or hide items in the report, or click links that go to other reports or Web pages. You can also add a table of contents or document map. Your report users can click items in the table of contents or document map to jump to areas within a report.

Report Builder and Report Designer support three types of links with the following actions:

  • Bookmark links   Jump to other areas within the report.

  • Hyperlinks   Jump to URLs that specify the address of Web pages or reports on a report server by using URL access.

  • Drillthrough report links   Jump to other reports on the same report server. For more information, see Drillthrough Reports (Report Builder 3.0 and SSRS).


Links that are bound to dataset fields can be vulnerable to tampering for malicious purposes. For more information, see Securing Reports and Resources in SQL Server Books Online on msdn.microsoft.com.

You can also let your users control report display and content by designing expressions that include parameter references for sort, filter, and visibility. For more information, see Parameters (Report Builder 3.0 and SSRS), Filtering, Grouping, and Sorting Data (Report Builder 3.0 and SSRS), and Adding Dataset Filters, Data Region Filters, and Group Filters (Report Builder 3.0 and SSRS).


You can create and modify report definitions (.rdl) in Report Builder 3.0 and in Report Designer in Business Intelligence Development Studio. Each authoring environment provides different ways to create, open, and save reports and related items. For more information, see Designing Reports in Report Designer and Report Builder 3.0 (SSRS) on the Web at microsoft.com.
