I use RS2000 SP2.
I would like to set table header to Print titles option when export a report to excel.
I try to create text boxes in stead of table on Page header area. This way seems good, however, this way is difficult for preventing merged cell problem.
Does anyone know good solution?
Does it solve at RS2005?
NOTE: Excel 07' is installed on my machine, but saved file as Excel 97-03
SSIS package- -Execute sql task with sql statement that drops table (drop table [sheet1]) -Execute sql task with sql statement to create table -Data flow task to send some rows to excel sheet
Running this package over and over will keep appending rows to the excel sheet. Upon further examination I'm noticing that the drop table excecute sql task is only deleting the header record. I know this used to work when I only had the previous version of excel installed on my machine.
Any ideas? Is this a problem when working with Excel 2007 in compatibility mode? I'm about to just delete the file altogether and re-create it.
I need some help. I am writing a report in SSRS 2005 that I then need to export to Excel. When I put a report header I would expect the header to not display in the Excel spreadsheet until the Print Preview or the Print. The report footer works just fine I put some text in the footer, and it shows up in the footer. The header though, shows up as a row in the Excel spreadsheet that then causes columns to merge. How do I get the report header to act like a page header?
When I open the spreadsheet in Excel 2000, it works fine. When I try to print, it crashes Excel. In testing, I narrowed it down to the Header/Footer, because it also crashes when I go to Page Setup and click on the header/footer tab.
However, I can print the same spreasheet from Excel 2007.
Am I just dealing with a "you need to upgrade all your clients" situation, or is there a known issue with certian formatting that is passed out with reports that is not supported by older versions of Excel?
I am using Reporting Services 2005 SP2 to serve up the report that is exported to Excel.
In above format:15-10 means Oct 15, 15-09 means Sept 15I am getting issues while formatting this in SSRS.I need SSRS table headers to be dynamic. I need that it should be according to the sql table header...The table header should change according to the sql query
I have a report that I created and the report was working until I added some fields to a group footer row in a table.
My table has 5 group levels. I had information displaying in the 5th level header group and detail. It was working fine. Then I added some fields to the 4th level group footer. Now it displays only the Page header, Table header, and the 4th level group footer data.
What happened to the rest of the data?
All the cells and rows I want to display have the Visibility Hidden set to false. I tried removing the objects I added (to the 4th level group footer) and it still does not work. Is this a bug or did I set something that is hiding the data.
Hi I'm experiencing the following problem: When I export my report to excel then open up the Print Preview in Excel, the table headers are not printed on each page, only on the first. I have ticked the "Repeat header rows on each page" in the table properties, but to no effect. For some reason this works for PDF but not for Excel. Is this some kinda bug or am I doing something incorrectly? I've tried putting the report in in a table as a sub-report, but that doesn't work either. Is there a work-around (besides putting the table header row in the page header)? I'm really at my wits' end and quite frustrated. Thanks in advance
I've built a fairly straight forward report in RS that looks normal in preview mode and in PDF format with out any issues.But when I export it to Excel report header is not appearing in each page.Any ideas as to why this is occurring?thanks in advance,Ramesh KS
Hi, This is because there are many columns need to display ,when users export to excel ,now they have to manually adjust the worksheet as one page(width and hight) . Therefore,as the title,can anyone help me?
I have a report that the user can print right from the RS site on three pages (each page one page wide). However, when I have the server email the report as an attachment in Excel; Excel tries to print it on four pages with one of the pages spilling over into the fourth page.
How can I get Excel to format the print version just as I have on the RS site?
Hi, I am using SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services to export several reports to Excel. I have been able to get around the column merging issue but there are still a few things I still need to do:
Add filters to the column header row. I haven't seen where this can be set in RS. Is there a way to do this?
Set up the spreadsheet to print a certain way. I have set the page orientation and size, along with margins and a header which repeats on each printed page. What I haven't been able to do is:
Repeat the column headers on each page
Shrink the table so it fits one page width. I have narrowed the column widths but there are too many columns to fit on one page so it needs to be shrunk down.
Add page numbers to the printed report. I tried adding it to the header and footer but I only get page 1 of 1 on each page. Can anyone help me on any of these issues?
My alternative is to create a custom rendering extension but I would rather extend the existing one. Is that possible? How can it be done? I checked out OfficeWriter but I really didn't see anything for the printing side of things, unless I missed something.
Does anyone know of a way to keep from exporting a page header when rendering in Excel. We have a default header (title and logo) that I would like to suppress so that users don't need to delete the rows prior to sorting (to eliminate merged cells).
Is there a way to avoid exporting the page header to Excel (or any other renderer). My reports seem to lose their charm without the headers (setting Print on First/Last Page to false), and at the same time, the users don't want the headers exported to Excel.
We have a process here that produces several dozen Excel Spreadsheets every day from SQL Server using the bcp utility. the problem is that we cannot include the column headers when producing the Output. We are therefore trying to find a method where we can append the column Headers to the Spreadsheets; is there a way of doing this?
I am running into an issue while trying to export data to a spreadsheet. I actually don't know how to do it... Considering I only know the column names by the time I execute my procedure, I can't use the Excel Destination to export data.
With DTSs I would create an ActiveX script to execute the procedure which loads the results into a temp table. After that I would select everything from this temp table and load the results into a record set, looping through this record set to create the destination spreadsheet with the dynamic column names.
When it comes to SSIS we are advised to write vb.net scripts instead of ActiveX... These ones do not have records set's but dataset's, which at first glance are only applicable to xml and not xls files (when I try to define a variable as a dataset in my vb.net code, I face a message saying: Missing reference required to assembly System.Xml...).
How I would create this spreadsheet using a vb.net code in SSIS packages? Please, help...
I have a report that I need to reference data in my Page Header. I am referencing 2 data fields in my report body to do this. The report will render fine and the data is present in my Pager Header; however, when I export to Excel, the data is missing; only my labels are present. What's even stranger is that it works just fine if I export to a PDF file.
Below is the expression code from one of the fields in my Page Header :
="From: " & ReportItems!dtBegDate.Value
Again, the report will render fine and my data is present. It only comes up blank when I export to Excel. The only part of the data that makes it over is the text (i.e. "From:")
There was a requirement to have the table header as part of frozen rows in excel when exported because there are about 1000 rows in the report and the column header has to be retained during scrolling. Since only page headers will be frozen in excel export, the text boxes was copied from the table header row to the page header. After all text boxes were copied, the table header row was removed. After modifying the report, I noticed that the excel export report took more than half an hour for exporting the data. I tried to reproduce the problem in a sample and I was able to reproduce it using AdventureWorks data source. This report before modifying takes 1 minutes to export. After moving all the column headers to page header, it takes 25 minutes to export. Has anybody faced this issue and is there any solution for this performance problem? Thank you. Here are the steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new data source for AdventureWorks database 2. Create a new report with the AdventureWorks data source and with the query 'SELECT * FROM Person.Contact' 3. Run the report and export in excel format and note down the time taken for the same - Approx it will less than a minute. 4. Open the report layout and include a page header (Report->Page Header) and move the title from body to the page header. 5. Select each column header, copy the cell and paste in the page header and align it with the column in the body. Alternatively, a new textbox for each column can be created and arranged in the page header. (As a result, there are 16 textboxes in the page header). 6. Now, run the report and export in excel format and note down the time taken and please notice that it takes 25 minutes. 7. Delete some of the text boxes in the page header, the excel export takes less time and is dependent on the number of textboxes in the page header.
I have a tablix report (SSRS 2008) when I render it in excel my client always need to see the row headers as fixed one i.e when he/she scrolls report from row 20 scrolling should begin and always want to see first 20 row and next should be scrolling. Is this possible.
I am exporting SSRS report to Excel I am aware that excel doesn't show footer , It shows in print preview but my footer has text box which have text disclaimer more than 255 characters, the data getting truncated.
Is there a way to dynamically feed the Text of the Column titles into a report at run-time in Reporting Services?
In Access I could use DLookup to pull YTD Dates (e.g. "05/2008") from another view that kept track of the settings for the year being processed (Curr Year, Prior Year, Prior Year II, YTD I, YTD II, and etc. for each Year's data. YTD I and YTD II would read like '07/2008' and '09/2008'. The YTD II value could change as the next month's data became available ('10/2008'). As we switched from year to year (2007, 2008, etc.) all I had to do was update the [tbl Status Flags] table for the next year and all my many reports would reflect the correct headers for the periods in the data. The period could be switched back to prior years at any time by the user in order to view past data. When the year was changed the report headers would have to reflect that. The status flags table would give the setting for each year. Using hard coded titles was too confusing for the user and changing the titles manually was not feasible.
We have moved to SQL Server 2005 and Reporting Services 2005. Besides losing the ability to Change the Data at the top of every page as the Dept, VP Name, Director and etc. changed I also seem to have lost this dynamic column headers ability. I have found a cumbersome workaround for the data at the top of the page, but the only thing I have come up for the columns is to try to create queried parameters to feed those titles (they will be the same throught the report) and to fill those parameters with the queried defaults. I haven't tried it successfully yet, but so far it's looking like that is not how the defaults work.
Hopefully someone out there has a solution. I'd appreciate any help I can get.
