Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 fix release.
Consider the following scenario:
In Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services, you have a report that contains a table and at least 2 levels of table groups.The table has multiple records.
You define a Drillthrough action inside the table groups. This Drillthrough action uses links to redirect you to another report, and this Drillthrough passes a parameter value to the other report.
You use a toggle or a visibility expression to hide the first row. For example, row X would be the first visible row in the table if you do not use toggles or visibility expressions. After you use a toggle or a visibility expression, row X is hidden by the toggle or the visibility expression. Therefore, row Y becomes the first visible row in the table.
In this situation, the Drillthrough action on row Y may have an incorrect value.
Note If the Drillthrough action is run on the subsequent rows after the first visible row, the Drillthrough action has a correct value.
This problem occurs because an incorrect parameter value is passed when the Drillthrough action occurs. Therefore, the state of a member variable is not updated appropriately. This causes the Drillthrough action on the first visible row to have the value from the first row in the table. However, if the Drillthrough action is run on the subsequent rows, the state is updated appropriately.
