Sure you can do this. There are several ways this can be done, using a
little script to change the file name, pass in an xml stream, or use
property binding. Look at the attached screenshot. Notice the fx
button on the image labeled 2. The expression is represented in image
3. In this case I am looking in a report directory, but I could have
deleted this entire expression and just selected a string parameter that
you pass in to the report as well.
