You can schedule a linked report to run on a regular basis to ensure that the information is up to date. To do this, use SQL Server Reporting Services Report Manager (SSRS). In SSRS Report Manager, you can schedule reports to run one time or on a continuous basis at intervals of hours, days, weeks, or months. You can do the following:
- Schedule report delivery in a standard or
- Schedule report history so that new snapshots
are added to the report history at regular intervals.
- Schedule time to refresh the data of a report
- Schedule the expiration of a cached report to
occur at a predefined time so that it can be refreshed later.
To configure a schedule for a report, follow the procedure in the Scheduling Reports and Subscriptions topic in SQL Server 2008 Books Online (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=158822).
