SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You create a main report and add a drillthrough action in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services (SSRS 2008 R2).
  • You click a link on the main report to drill through to another report (also known as a drillthrough report).
  • You open the main report and then click the link to view the drillthrough report in Report Manager.
In this scenario, the main report is re-rendered before the drillthrough report is rendered and displayed. Additionally, you may experience poor rendering performance.
