Hi all,

I'm quite new in RS. I've made several reports with report parameters and deployed them to the report server successfully. Then from windows application the users can choose from a checkbox list with all reports from RS. By clicking the checkbox, can users choose more than one reports or all reports if they want and by clicking a button to preview the report/reports before they print out them. Is it possible or just one report eachtime?

Thanks for any input!

Re: Possible to print several reports at one time?
It is absolutely possible. You have to decide on which integration option (URL or Web service) you will use to request reports but it is possible with both. If you have a choice, I strongly suggest you consider RS 2005 and the VS.NET 2005 Windows Forms Report Viewer. Once the user makes a selection, your application can open multiple instances of the Windows Form hosting the Report Viewer and pass the report path to each instance. Application integration is one of the areas where RS really stands out.
