Reporting Services :: Adding New Line In Report Builder Expressions

Mar 14, 2014

I typically use Report Designer, but I have a new project requiring Report Builder 3.0.  In Report Designer (BIDS), I can take more complex expressions (ie SWITCH with 5 or 6 options), and put each pairing on a new line to be able to better read the code.

In the Expression Editor in Report Builder, pressing the ENTER key on my keyboard closes the Expression dialog box and saves the changes.

Is there any way to add line returns in the code to make it more readable?  The expression editor wraps when it runs out of room, but this doesn't make it more readable, in some cases, it wraps in the middle of a field name, making it even less readable.

The 2012 version also has this same "feature".

Adding Line Sequence Numbers

Jun 25, 2007

hi all

I am stuck with something that seems easy but im obviously clueless as how to execute the idea.

I have a custom table that houses invoices on the details level. So for example i have:


and so forth

What I am wanting to do in another column is keep track of the sequence number for each distinct invoice like:


I am working in a stored proc and i cant get past adding the numbers up at each line as a whole and not reseting when the next invoice number is present. Any help would be so greatly appreciated.

CLR Stored Procedure And Stack Trace Line Numbers

Sep 27, 2007

Hello you all CLR stored procedure experts,

When a self-developed CLR stored procedure throws an Exception and the Exception is caught in the code and for example logged, there only are class and method names in the stack trace lines, but not the line numbers. Can the line numbers somehow be included in the stack trace?

I'm not familiar with .NET framework stack traces, but when I tried to find out more information I hit concepts like PDB files, are such things somehow needed to enable line numbers in stack traces?

Big thanks already in advance,

Modifying A Report Created In Report Builder In The Report Designer.

Jun 30, 2006

After I use the report builder to create a generic report, how do I actually get that report into the report designer so that I can modify it more effectivly?

The issue that I have now is that the file on the report server is not a .rdl file and if I simply save it as one and then bring it into VS to modify it the code file is a html structure rater than a XML file type.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Report Builder Using Report Model Based On Linked Server (Excel) - Primary Key?

Sep 6, 2007

I've created a linked server with a pretty basic Excel spreadsheet, and used this command to create a linked server to it:

sp_addlinkedserver ''XL_SPS_1', 'Excel', 'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0', 'c:MyExcel.xls', null, 'Excel 8.0'

I want to use this as the data from which to build a report model. As linked servers don't show up in the Data Source View wizard, I created a view in SQL Server:

create view MyExcel
select * from XL_SPS_1...Sheet1$

Okay, great, now the view shows up in the DSV wizard and I can create the data source view. However, when I create a new report model based on this data source view, the Report Model Wizard tells me at "Create entities for all tables" that I've got an error when it processes dbo_MyExcel that "Table does not have a primary key."

I assume this is where the identifying attributes for the entities in the report model are taken from, so I really can't go further. Does anyone have an idea as to how to add a primary key to a linked server (Excel) in SQL 2005? Can this be done? Other than importing spreadsheet data to a SQL table, how can I get around this?

Possiblity / Instructions On How To Install Report Builder Locally Without Hitting Report Server

Feb 16, 2007

We have a remote business client who has a proxy server setup and this translates into receiving a 407 proxy authentication blocking error when attempting to download the report builder application for deployment off the report server which is housed locally with us. The proxy server does not allow them to download application type files off another site. At the moment, they would not like to disable the proxy for these users to allow them to deploy the application on their client or add the report server as a trusted site. Is there a method by which Report Builder can be locally installed on the client pc instead of online only with it knowing the correct report server to access and then still launch correctly when the report builder button is pressed through report manager?

I am not a web application guru by any means and we have tried to replicate the oneclick deployment and what occurs in the local settings/apps/2.0 subdirectories, but the application still attempts to download/install again. If we attempt to just launch the local executable on the client, report builder assumes the client pc (localhost) is the report server to access. Is there a method which will succeed?

Reporting Services :: Row Group Totals On A Drill Down Report Builder Report

Oct 28, 2015

I have a report builder drill down report. I have row groups with totals.    It looks like the attached.   The problem is when the report is not expanded the Grand Totals column is not accurate... it is displaying the totals of one of the rows when expanded.The expression in the Total Show text box is

                                         Sum(IIF(Fields!status.Value = "CO", CDbl(Fields!TX_CO.Value),           Nothing)),
  MID(Fields!protocol_id.Value,1,7) = "GENERAL" and                                                  MID(Fields!program_id.Value,1,6)
= "INTAKE",                                                        Sum(IIF(Fields!status.Value = "CO",


Is there any way to not display the expression in the Total columns unless the report is expanded?

Report Builder Icon Is Not Showing Up On The Report Manager Home Page

Feb 1, 2007

HI, there,

I added a new windows user "ReportUser" which is a local user (not in administrator group). When I connect to the report manage's web page, I use reportuser to log in (when the anonymous access is disabled it will ask a log in). Report builder icon is not showing up on the report manager home page.

If I log in as a user in administrator group, the reportr builder icon shows up so I can download it and build report.

I have assigned reportuser "Content manager" and "repoter builder" access to the home folder. Is there anything else I have to do to make the report build icon show up on the home page?

Report Builder And Report Server Cross Domain Communication

Dec 19, 2006

I have client machine in one domain, say A domain , on which I have installed .net 2.0 without any problem. I have report server running in other domain (B domain) where I have deployed few models which will be used from domain A to create ad hoc reports by launching Report Builder. I can access other reports in domain B from A

But when I click on Report Builder tries to connect to server in domain B but fails to connect and shows following log in a text pop up

I know, problem is because of cross domain communication but question is then how to fix it ? what changes I need to do for that in firewall, domain etc etc settings?

Reporting Services :: Report Builder - Add Report Processing Time?

Feb 26, 2015

I was wondering if there was any way to add a value field to a report, with the time it took for the report to Process.

It would probably be a text field with an Expression, but don't know how that would go.

I know that in Expression there is a value for ExecutionTime (when report began to run), but nothing about when it ends.Can this be done? and if yes, how?

Reporting Services :: See Report-Level Variables In Report Builder 3.0

Mar 22, 2011

Is there a way to see Report-Level variables in Report Builder 3.0?  Also, just as a feedback, it would be really nice if there were a way to see and easily access all of the variables used in a report from one location instead of going to the dataset, the report, and then to the individual groups (if needed) to see the variables.  Also, it would be very useful if Group-level variables can show up in the Expression Builder as well.

Reporting Services :: Go To Report Function Works In Report Builder But Not In Web?

Jul 6, 2015

I've gotten to the point of publishing the new reports on the SSRS server and have run into the following problem.

I use a field in the primary report with the "Go to report" action to open up another report (also published) for more details. It works properly from within ReportBuilder (2.0) using the report server and I can go to and from the secondary report as I expect. Its passing the correct parameters to the second report and its runs.

But when I use the reports from the SSRS web, the Go To link no longer works. Mouse hover shows its still a link but clicking goes no where. I can run both reports independently from SSRS and they still work.  

I've tried this in IE and Chrome with no luck in either. I also poked around at Compatability view and popup blocker but nothing made any difference.

Restrict Report Builder Access To Report Execution Timeout

Nov 22, 2006

I am setting up the SQL2005 reporting service to let users build their own reports on the web. I'll provide them with pre-built report models. We have concern with SQL database performance by allowing users to execute huge reports. The problem that I have is: If I give the users permissions to build report they'll have access to the report's Properties | Execution page, which allows them to disable the report execution timeout. Is there a way for me to allow them build reports while restrict them to access the report execution timeout settings?

Please advise. Many thanks.

Feb 11, 2007


I've created dsv that contain all fields from table database. in the smdl I've remove some fileds due to security. All fields in the smdl do not contain drill.

Issue: When I created calculated field in the report builder the field has a link. When I clicked the drill I saw all the record data including field that not in the smdl.


1) Can I remove the link from the calculated fields?

2) Can I prevent from users drill to fields that not in the smdl?

Dynamic Refresh Of Report Model In The Report Builder

Jan 22, 2007

Is it possible to dynamically refresh the report model of the report builder?

could it even be using code with any of the interfaces?

When we add a table or add a column to the table in database , will the report model get refreshed automatically or do we need to do it externally. If so, can we use any of the objects and write a custom code in VB.

Converting Report Desinger Files To Report Builder

Oct 6, 2007


I am working on Report builder project and was wondering if somone can help me with below questions

Is it possible to convert RDL files built in report designer to Report Builde RDL file? if yes then is there any tool or we will have to do it manually. I have also seen that there is no SQL in RDL files created in Report Builder.
If above is not possible then my second question is if we can only copy the layout but as we have got 1000 RDL files in built by report desinger how can we automatically convert this into layout in Report Builder.
Does Microsoft has any specific tools for this?
Will highly appreciate for any help on above.

Report Builder Report Models On Top Of Analysis Services

Jul 18, 2007


Is anyone using Report Builder via a Report Model generated from Analysis Services in production?

From what I have seen on the Forum people have done this from books, but it is not clear as to whether they have used it at work, in production. There do appear to be reports of some problems with the integration between the two, and with performance.

The attraction of Report Builder on top of Analysis Services is that we should only need to define measures, security, etc, once in the Cube, not twice, as we would if we had to use Report Builder on top of a relational source, alongside Cubes on Analysis Services.

What I would like to find out is:

1) If there is someone who has deployed Report Builder on top of both a relational data source and Analysis Services. If so, which has been taken up best by the users?

2) How does the navigation in Report Builder work with Cubes. It seems a little bizarre in that you can only drill down, never up. Is there any way around this. Do you need to design the Cube specifically to support the Report Model? If so how?

3) The generation of the report model is easy. However, is there any way to control this, or to edit it later?

4) We have had problems with Report Models on relational sources where changes have invalidated the Report Model and all reports built on it. Can similar problems arise, for example, if you change the Cube and then Re-Generate the Report Model?

5) Are there any other issues around Report Builder. The two I have found so far seem to be Hidden Dimensions showing up, and Report Builder not working if measures are defined as non-aggregatable.

6) Are there any other end-user adhoc reporting products which work better with Analysis Services?
