This may be what you are looking for.  I use it to pass Account ID,
Opportunity ID's etc... to my RS reports from buttons in CRM created
using the isv.config file.

Running CRM - MS SQL Reporting Services (RS) from ISV button and
passing in Account/Opportunity GUID parameters to report.

Here is a method of running an RS report from CRM and passing in the
GUID from the record you are on to the RS report.  Does NOT require any
programming, aspx pages, etc... (other than building your report in
Visual Studio (VS)).

In this example, I needed a way in CRM 1.2 to see all of the Cases that
were logged for an Account - as well as all of the Cases logged for
any of the Contacts created under an Account.  I needed to see all of
these in one screen.  The main problem with doing this is that if you
point your isv.config button directly to the RS report, it will pass in
an additional question mark (?) that RS does not know how to handle.
In order to compensate for this, I utilized the Redirect Reference
flags for IIS 6.0 - which removed the question mark.  Here are some
details about the steps taken:

=B7	Create the RS report in VS with two parameters.
=B7	Create a virtual directory for this report in IIS, redirect to RS
report, use Redirect Reference flags.
=B7	Add a button to the Account Toolbar (and call it whatever you
like).  This was done utilizing the isv.config file for CRM.

More detail:
1=2E	Build your report in VS.  Make sure and include two parameters in
the report (oType (int) and oId (string)).  These are the same name of
the parameters that are passed when you set the "PassParams=3D1"
value in the isv.config file.  You can then use the oId to be passed
into an expected parameter for your stored procedure - or just use
the parameter as filter in your report or sql query.  (multiple ways to
skin the cat)
a=2E	NOTE:  Although oType will most likely not be used in your report,
you will still need to create it since this parameter will be passed
into the URL query string when the user clicks on your "All Account
Cases" button in CRM.
2=2E	Create a Virtual Directory in IIS.  Call it whatever you like.  I
chose to put this virtual directory under the Default Web site, which
is where RS is installed on my web server.  When web site initially
asked for directory, I chose the c:\inetpub\wwwroot\crm directory.
However, after creating the virtual directory, you need to go to the
properties of it and change the main tab to "A redirection to a
URL".   This is where you will point the virtual directory to the RS
report you have built.  Type in the full path name to your report in
the "Redirect to:" box.  Mine looks something like this:
a=2E	NOTE:  notice above the &$S$P.  These are the Redirection flags that
will remove the additional question mark being passed into the report
from the "PassParams=3D1" portion of the isv.config.  Notice that I
do NOT contain the RS report parameters in this URL for the virtual
directory.  Don't worry, CRM will add the oType and oId parameters
for you as you click on the button generated from the isv.config and
the "PassParams=3D1".
b=2E	NOTE:  remember that when calling on your report and passing in
parameters through the URL, you will need to path to the report server
directory and not just the GUI version for reports.(see above).  I also
added in a couple of other items for clear sessions etc... as you can
see above as well.
3=2E	Open your isv.config in the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\CRM\_Resources
directory (if this is where your app is installed).  Under the Account
section, add the button to the Toolbar section.  Example:  (remember to
point the URL in the isv.config to your virtual directory name as shown
in the example below - "AccountCaseSummary" is the name of my
virtual directory in IIS)

<ToolBar ValidForCreate=3D"0" ValidForUpdate=3D"1">
<Button Title=3D"All Account Cases" ToolTip=3D"Click here to show all Cases
for this Account" Icon=3D""
Url=3D"http://reportwebservername/AccountCaseSummary" PassParams=3D"1"
WinParams=3D"menubar=3Dno;status=3Dno;toolbar=3Dno;" WinMode=3D"0"/>

You should be set.  Reset IIS and give it a whirl.

Sharepoint Linked Table
Hi! I just inherited an Access 2003 database which has a linked table to Sharepoint (dbo_...) without any problem. When you view the actual table from Sharepoint it only has 5 fields, but in Access 2003 have 12 fields. It gets updated without any issue. We are in the process of converting to Access 2007 and the linked table is different from Access 2003. Most of the columns are dropped. Would anyone know how I can keep the same exact column layout (# of columns) as in 2003? This is necessary, because in the code, the linked table updates the local table. Also, we must leave as is, beca...
