Choose Link Page (Report Manager)

Use the Choose Link page to choose a different report upon which to base the currently selected linked report. Linked reports are based on other reports already published to a report server. A linked report uses the layout and data of the base report, but has separate property pages so that you can customize parameter properties, security settings, name, description, and location.

Through the Choose Link page, you can choose a different published report to use with the linked report. Other settings of the linked report (such as security and parameter settings) are unaffected by changes to the link information. The report server will not validate your selection, so be sure to choose a report that has the same parameters as those you specified on the linked report.

Use the following procedure to navigate to this location in the user interface (UI).

  1. Open Report Manager, and locate the linked report you want to change.

  2. Hover over the linked report, and click the drop-down arrow.

  3. In the drop-down menu, click Manage. This opens the General properties page for the linked report.

  4. On the General tab, on the properties page, click Change Link.
