ms153683.note(en-US,SQL.90).gifNote:
A URL can contain only one Command parameter. If a URL includes multiple Command parameters, an error is returned. If the Command parameter is specified in a URL without an accompanying value, the Command parameter is ignored.

The following example generates a generic item-navigation page that you can use to view all the child items of your Samples folder.

http://servername/reportserver?/SampleReports&rs:Command=ListChildren
