I've got this problem: (with Reporting Services 2005)

I've got a report with a chart with some values that are needed to get the chart displayed.
If one of this parameters is missing (not selected) the program doesn't display the report (it shows a blank page)
Is it possible in this case to get instead a textbox with a message requiring to select the missing parameter (if I insert a textbox below the chart in the layout, this textbox isn't displayed if one parameter is missing)

ps sorry for my poor english

thanks in advance for your help

Re: Missing parameter, no chart displayed
It isn't displayed because the report is not rendered unless all required parameter values are passed. The easiest way is to default all parameters to some values, e.g. some values that will render a blank report.
