How to: Link a Report to a Model as a Clickthrough Report

Instead of using the default clickthrough report templates, you can create a Report Builder report and then link it to a specific entity in the report model. When the person viewing the report clicks the interactive data in the main report, this report is displayed as a clickthrough report. To link a report to an entity, use Reporting Services Report Manager.

The primary, or base, entity that is used in the report must to be the same entity to which the report is linked.
