Problem / Solution

Any report designer will often need to find ways to offer easy navigation paths to report consumers. SSRS provides several methods to navigate a report including document maps and bookmarks.

Thus, for PDF renderings, the document map functionality is expressed through PDF bookmarks. In Report Viewer and Report Preview (online), the document map actually opens on the left side of a report. For Excel, documentm maps are expressed through the use of a table of contents worksheet which is linked to specific worksheets..
