    So the parameters to setup the SSRS reports are provided through an Access Web App and then the reports are hosted inside SharePoint so that they're available throughout an organisation. Can reports created using Access desktop be hosted and distributed via SharePoint as well?

    @Villadi1:No - Access Reports can only be run inside Access Desktop. However you could use any third party reporting or BI tool to report on AWA data (as long as it's 'unlocked') - for example Power BI.

    Power BI can also be used to report on Access Desktop data so that could be a way to distribute the reports throughout an organisation, could it not?
