Description

If I create a "linked report" from an existing report (for example, to customize which parameters are displayed), the new linked report does not print in the same format as the original. It seems the page margins are defaulting to something other than what the original was set to.

And here was I, fairly new to server-based SSRS, finding the Linked Report facility and thinking it was a great help for organising my reports in a multi-company environment. Now I have to remember to action the work-around script after linking a new report. Although the ReportServer DB trigger looks interesting, I doubt the company looking after the SSRS implementation at my employer will add it, and I don't have permission myself :(

Just how difficult could a Hot Fix be?

So, it has been 5 years a major version change, and an R2 release and the bug is still there. When will it be fixed, so that we do not need to manually change the properties of the Linked Report?

Thak you for filing this issue. We are aware of it. The problem is that when you create a linked report the page height and page width properties are not propagated from the parent report to the linked report. You can set these yourself using a simple script to set the height and width properties on the page.

You can do this by setting the following properties on the report:
PageHeight, PageWidth, TopMargin, BottomMargin, LeftMargin, RigthMargin

You can set these using the SetProperties() SOAP API.
