Search button Description

Folder tree

Select reports based on the custom hierarchy of report folders. These folders are defined and organized as a report set.

Date tree

Select folders based on a hierarchy of dates defined by Report Server. The reports are organized based on the date (year/month/day) they were run.


Perform ad hoc searches across all of your reports. If you know the complete name of the report, you can enter it directly into the search box.

In addition:

  • Type a <space> key to see a drop-down list of beginning characters or names for all existing reports.
  • Enter the first name of the report and type a <space> key to see a drop-down list allowing you to auto-fill the name for an existing report.

Deselect all

Click to clear all selected reports.
