Access the fields of the report's data source while evaluating the exported DocumentName
The fields of the report's data source are not available in the DocumentName evaluation context. It would be helpful if one can use an expression like =First(Fields.ClientName) for DocumentName.

Hi David,

We agree with your arguments and the feature will be implemented according to its priority.
Meanwhile, as a workaround you may use Report Parameter with AvailableValues -> DataSource set to the data source of the Report (or any other that may hold the required DocumentName). In the Expression for setting the value of the DocumentName the Report Parameter values are accessible.

Regards,

This would be very helpful, a customer asked for the document name to reflect a field value today.
This is also a very common scenario, that an entire report is tied to data from a filtered data source where only one detail record really exists. I would venture to say that as many as 30% of reports I generate fall in this category.
 It should be understood that it doesn't make sense if there are many records reflected in the report but then allow a specific record to be selected by first, max, min, last etc would also be very helpful, or even automatically default to the first record so there isn't a conflict if there are multiple records.
