The times I have spent with SSRS 2008 can be likened to that of a married couple’s life story. The moment I first laid my eyes on her during the Microsoft seminars and community previews, I knew that she was going to be the one. I secretly started collecting details about her, as much as possible and awaited her arrival. Needless to say, I was one of the very first to have the trial version installed and in the dates that followed, I was just astounded at her potential – she seemed so full and promising. I even started writing sonnets in her praise (read as reviews), love struck that I was. Eventually, the marriage took place (yups, we got the license too!) and we revelled in the honeymoon period. But once the honeymoon period got over, I started noticing some irritating things about her that I had not noticed before – the story of every married couple’s life. And one of those irritating features was the auto update of report parameter datasets.
