Problem / Solution

SSRS allows us to add embedded customized code to a report in order to perform functions that may not be available or easily implemented in SSRS. The code which is embedded must be Visual Basic and allows for code reuse which in turn may simplify report updates. Furthermore the code function can accept and return various variables / strings, however when passing a parameter collection it is read only.

Need help on as to how to print a single time a report and then the report closes automatically. For example, while buying a certificate/ticket, you pay to enable printing of that ticket. To print again, need to pay again. How is that feasible with SSRS using VB code?

Two, need to print pantograph using VB code in SSRS reports. Please help.

Thanks in advance
