Open Url in new window and pass in parameters

I am working on reporting services and have a report called 'Dashboard' that summarises the content of other reports. There are 2 fields that are used to open the new reports, both open the URL in a new window, one opens it with the default parameters, the second needs to have different parameters passed in. The field opening the URL in a new window is working fine, this is the code: ="javascript:void(window.open('" & Fields!ReportURL.Value & "&rs:Command=render&rc:Parameters=true','_blank'))" The field that should open the report with set parameters is still opening using the default parameters, the code I've used for this is: ="javascript:void(window.open('" & Fields!ReportURL.Value & "&rs:Command=render&bViewExceptions=2&','_blank'))" The parameter is bViewExceptions. The URL to open the report is stored in the field ReportURL. Does anyone have any ideas how I can get the second field with the parameters to override the default values as I'm tearing my hair out. Many thanks.

can you add two columns to the report and simply display the two URLs and then copy/paste them into a browser and get the functionality you are trying for? If not then the URL is being formed badly and needs changing. Once it displays as text and will work as a pasted link them work on getting it clickable

I have just worked it out; the URL I set in the table was: 'http://hbm044exesql10/Reports/Pages/ Report.aspx?ItemPath=%2fNew+Reports%2fSX_Report145' when it should be: 'http://hbm044exesql10/ReportServer/Pages/ ReportViewer.aspx?%2fNew+Reports%2fSX_Report145' Many thanks for all the help, next time I'll try to ensure I give ALL the relevant information!!

what is the result if you remove the **,'_blank'** from the 2nd version?

No difference, it comes up the same as it did before.

Add &rs:ClearSession=true as one of your parameters :)

I put it in as below and it's still opening the default values: ="javascript:void(window.open('" & Fields!ReportURL.Value & "&rs:ClearSession=true&rs:Command=render&bViewExceptions=2&rs:ClearSession=true'))"
