Obviously, it is possible to pass variable via these two different methods. In this sample, region variable (varRegion) is a directly pass, while Year variable (varYear) is passed with data deck, or master detail. Please download mht and report specification for review in detail
This solution bring two major advantages
- Users still get interactive experience or animation with data deck. In this sample, users only care year change while region is specified somewhere else.
- The mht file size will be dramatically reduced, as the data deck results in much bigger size than direct pass
Use data deck with master detail relationship
Use direct pass
