Connect a Documents Web Part to a Report Viewer Web Part

If you are using Office SharePoint Server 2007, you can create a dashboard or Web Part Page that includes a Documents Web Part and a Report Viewer Web Part. By connecting the Web Parts, users who click on reports in the Documents library can view the report in an adjacent Report Viewer Web Part.

The Documents Web Part is associated with the Documents library of the Home site. To view, add, or remove items from the Documents library, click View All Site Content. In Libraries, click Documents. You can use the New, Upload, and Actions menu to manage the items in the Documents library.
