In the course of working with the DR, you’re going to wind up setting up scheduled jobs through SQL Agent, and – inevitably – you’re going to want to calculate job durations to see what is running long, perhaps unexpectedly so.
In certain situations, it may be desirable to make additional documentation available to the user at runtime. SSRS parameters can be leveraged for this purpose.
On occasion there is a need for rows on a report to be conditionally hidden or visible based upon an expression that is determined when the report is run. One example of this type of functionality can be shown within a report displaying the assessments for a patient. Each of the assessments can have a set of questions attached.
