Hi Josh, If I understand you correctly, you want to display the report items in Details View on the report manager rather than Tile View, actually, this report manager page has been compiled, you cannot change it, so this behavior is by design, if you really want to achieve this, I would recommend make use of Web Services to develop your own report manager. For more information about Report Server Web Service, please see: If I misunderstand you please feel free to let us know.

Dirt simple. Presumably you have a shortcut to the ReportManager something like: http://computername:8080/Reports/Pages/Folder.aspx Tack on a "?ViewMode=Detail" (or a "&ViewMode=Detail" if you have other parms already) operand so it looks like: http://computername:8080/Reports/Pages/Folder.aspx?ViewMode=Detail Microsoft will gracefully carry the ViewMode on to succesive pages for you.

Brilliant! Thanks. That's exactly what I want. When configuring multiple reports it is deeply tedious to keep having to click the Show Details button every time. Odd to choose that kind of behaviour by default Cheers Bob
