Using same SSRS installation to support two different CRM installs

We are implementing a second instance of CRM 4.0. It is for a different 
business so CRM will be installed on a different server than our current 
instance. Multihoming is not an option. 

In our current implementation our Reporting Services installation is on a 
different box than CRM. We would like to use the same SSRS server for reports 
for the new CRM installation. Is this possible? 




Our Reporting SErvices server is on a different machine also.

That should work just fine aslong as the organization names are different. 
Otherwise both instances will try to use the same folder and that could be 
tricky

Leo - 

   It is possible to reuse the same SSRS for two different CRM instances.  
The porblem arrises if you are using two different SQL servers to host the 
CRM databases or you want both instnaces to be set up for IFD. 
   The way the MSCRM SSRS report connector works you can only use the MSCRM 
SSRS connector per machine to connect to one MSCRM SQL machine.  This means 
if you are using enterprise MS CRM you can host multiple organizations on the 
one SQL machine and all share the MSCRM SSRS connector but if you have 
standard then if you do a second organization in MS CRM you have to either 
get Kerberos to work or have a second SSRS machine to allow another MSCRM 
SSRS Connector to be installed.
  If you are trying to do two different CRM servers conencting to two 
different SQL servers sharing one SSRS machine then you have a few options. 

The options to get SSRS working are:
1.	Get the Kerberos pass through security working for reports to work on the 
SSRS servers that is currently sharing with for both CRM instances.  Note: 
This options does not allow you to set up IFD for both CRM instances because 
the SSRS connector is required to do IFD 
2.	Use a new SSRS server for the new CRM instance.  Either a new report 
server or install SSRS on the CRM machine and install there.  

I hope that helps.

Later

One Command button for different reports
I have two controls, among others, on a particular form.

Based on the ‘ContractNumber’ I would like to have a command button open the ‘ContractType’ for the particular customer. I realize I can have command buttons, one for each report and have a parameter query use the ‘ContractNumber’ to call up the specific report. I want one button to open different reports, say ‘Click to view customers C...

Breaking Formulas using Pivot Table
I have Tab1 that has data in it in the form of a pivot table. I then have another sheet, Tab2, that pulls data from Tab1. This all works, but when I try to copy Tab2 into a new workbook (so that I can e-mail only that tab) a bunch of my formulas in Tab2 fail. If I refresh the pivot tables they work again or if I do a Replace "=" with "=" it seems to trick it into working (but some percent formatting changes to dollar formatting for some reason). I just want to know if there is an easy way to make the new workbook without breaking the formulas in my old one. Thanks in adv...
