Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 fix release.

SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You configure Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services to run in SharePoint Integrated mode.
  • You upload a report that has cascading parameters to the SharePoint site.
  • You customize the schedule for a new subscription on the SharePoint site.
In this scenario, the previously selected value for the independent parameter of the cascade parameters is correct. However, the drop-down list for the dependent parameter of the cascade parameters is dimmed, and the previously selected value of the dependent parameter is missing.

RESOLUTION

The fix for this issue was first released in Cumulative Update 5 for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1. For more information about this cumulative update package, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
975977  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975977/LN/ ) Cumulative update package 5 for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1
Note Because the builds are cumulative, each new fix release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 fix release. Microsoft recommends that you consider applying the most recent fix release that contains this hotfix.

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 hotfixes are created for specific SQL Server service packs. You must apply a SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 hotfix to an installation of SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1. By default, any hotfix that is provided in a SQL Server service pack is included in the next SQL Server service pack.
