I have used Report Builder in one of the project for client. Is it possible to provide parameter in the report that is generated by Report Builder? It's quite the same with the parameter in usual Report/RDL (by Visual Studio).
And is it possible to pass the UserID that is running the report to the Data Source View or directly to the query? Currently, I need to get the UserID of the user that runs the report to do some filtering of the data (in SQL Query). I can do this easily in the RDL file developed by Visual Studio, which I can use global parameter User!UserID and pass to query. I find difficulty to use SQL Execution Context (select USER_NAME(),SUSER_NAME()), because report needs to be run as certain account, so that the report can be subscribed by user (e.g. email subscription). How to pass this UserID to the query/data without end-user intervention in Report Builder?
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?
Hi, I am having chart which has positive and negative numbers.I need dark line(gridline) at 0.00th location.So that it differentiates between positive and negative levels.So please help me out in solving this asap.
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.
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?
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 as 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?
I'm having a problem with the Report Builder application; when I open Report Builder without parameters the application is working fine - I can create reports and save them in a folder I have access to on the Report Server.
However, if I open Report Builder with the report path as a launch parameter to edit an existing report I run into some problems. I can still change and execute the report and save it (if I have publish-permissions to the folder/report), but if I try to use Save As to save the report somewhere else it does not work.
The Save As dialog appears, but the "Look in" dropdownlist is empty, and the box below says "Loading...". If I try to press the "Folder up" button next to the dropdownlist an exception is thrown. It seems the Report Builder suddenly does not know which Report Server it is connected to..
I use e.g. https://<servername>/reportserver/reportbuilder/ReportBuilder.application?/BUs/Standard/testke as url to open Report Builder. BUs/Standard/testke is the report's path.
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?
I have installed SQL Server Reporting Service on window xp. everything working fine except one thing.
I have installed sql server with my a/c. my a/c have admin rights. when i giving http://dineshpatel/reports it is displaying page but Report Builder and other option are not displaying. I hope i don't have admin rights.
I have checked with local administrator login also but same problem.
what additional setting are require for admin rights?
Hi All, I want to format the alternate rows in different colours of Tabular Report (Done using the Report Builder), as we do in Sql Server Reporting Services .Is this possible in the Report Builder ?. -Mahendra
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 ..it 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?

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?
The version of Report Builder I have will only let me choose from a very limited range of layouts. For example, the tabular layout displays a single table on a page.
Is there a way to produce a report containing two tables and other fields?
For example, I would like to create a very simple customer report with customer name and address at the top, then a table containing all contacts I have for the the customer (a 1:N sub-table of customer) and then a second table containing all the orders from the customer (a 1:N sub-table of customer).
Is this possible in the current version of Report Builder or is it planned in a future relase?
P.S. I know this is easy in VS Report Designer but I specifically want to do this in Report Builder. The Report Designer client is simply too complex for my non-technical user base. Report Builder would be ideal.
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.

I deployed the same report model to 2 different SSRS servers. The report only has 1 field with count of records from 1 table. I can drill down on this column on 1 server, but not on the other server. This column is set to drillabe on the report model.
Is there any SSRS configuration that is stopping me drilling down on it?
Using the report builder, I created a simple report based on a report model. This report runs ok in the report builder.
I proceeded to save the report to the report server, but when I want to view this report in Report Manager, I get the following error:

I have created couple report through report builder which using AS cube as the data source. Every time when I try to access the New Subscription from the web UI. It complains about "Subscriptions cannot be created because the cedentals used to run the report are not stored, or if a linked report, the link is no longer valid.".
So I went into "Properties" -> "Data Source" and use the custom data source. I've selected "Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services" and put in the following Data Source=SQLTEST;Initial Catalog="Data Warehouse AS". I've select "Crednetials stored securely in the report server", using my Windows login and password.. and I've got the following error.
" An error has occurred during report processing.
Query execution failed for data set 'dataSet'.
The SemanticQuery element at line 7, column 351 (namespace http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2004/10/semanticmodeling) cannot appear under Envelope/Body/Execute/Command. "
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?
I'm using Reporting Services integrated with SharePoint Server 2007, but when I tried to use Report Builder to create my report that uses data from two or more tables, it just surprised me with the limit of just one entity (table) for each report, so I can't use such a INNER JOIN or any other way to create a relationship between the entities.
How can I achieve this goal and add this report to a SharePoint Page?
PS: If this is not the right forum, please move this post to the right one.
When saving a report in Report Builder the default users folder is displayed when save is first clicked. However the user can navigate to any folder from the root on down. Is there anyway to only allow the user to access their "My Report" folder and not navigate to other folders?
Users are currently placed in a Windows Group. The windoes group is given System User and My Reports roles.
