ReportBuilder 3 - Update a Parameter with an Action

Hello all, I am building a financial overview report for project managers, in one section I have monthly expenditure data. In another section I'd like to have the details of the expenditures (specifics)...

I can get the subreport to display, but what I am trying to do is update the parameter automatically (when the PM clicks on June 2011 for example, detail for June 2011 would appear in the subreport)... however I don't see any way of making the "textbox action" for the period be able to update the parameter...

The only options I could have is to go to other report (which I don't want, as I'd like to have this on the same page), or go to URL (no), or go to bookmark (? probably not)

.. I would think that this is possible, anybody have any advice on how I could do this, any help would be appreciated... Thanks, Sheep

I don't know how to tell you the specifics, but [Simon Sabin's recent PASS presentation][1] on Slicers was amazing and shows how to make SSRS interactive. You could probably glean how to accomplish that by using his techniques.
