Report Builder: How To Provide Parameter In The Report Generated Report Builder
Hi All,

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 i drag and drop table1 fields to report, i am not able to see the other 2 tables(table2 & table3)

Is there any property or relationship do i need to maintain?

Adding Line Sequence Numbers
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
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.
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

Software / Other Requirements For Executing Report Manager And Report Builder On A Client Machine


I created an adhoc model using MSSQL Server 2005 and also created a report (based on that model using

the Report Builder application on my machine which has both, VS 2005 (along with .Net Framework 2.0) as

well as MSSQL 2005 Reporting Services installed.


However, when I try to access my localhost from somebody else's machine, I am not able to do so. The

machine from where I am carrying out this activity has the following credentials: 

The user is not an admin user
No .Net Framework installed. (Hence when I click on Report Builder it asks me to install .Net F/w 2.0)
No VS2005 installed
No MSSQL 2005 Reporting Services installed.

So can anybody please help me with the solution for the following queries??

Do I need to log in as the admin user, if I wish to view Reports from the Report Server?
Is .Net F/w required on the client machine??

Please help


Thanking you in advance


Kind Regards

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

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

Problem When Starting Report Builder With Report Path Launch Parameter


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.


Am I doing something wrong here?

Report Builder Icon Is Not Showing Up On The Report Manager Home Page
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 Model: Drill On Calculated Field In Report Builder

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.

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

Report Builder And Report Server Cross Domain Communication

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

Restrict Report Builder Access To Report Execution Timeout
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.

Hidden Attrib From Report Model Can Still Be Viewed In Report Builder
Hello, I use MS Visual studio 2005

When I add a new Report Server Project: Project1
This project contains:

-JH.ds (Data Source)
-JH.dsv (Data Source View: contains 1 table ('JH_Table1') with 3 attribs (a, b, c)
-JH.smdl (the property hidden of a,b and c are set to TRUE)
Then the project is deployed.
Report builder is started from internet explorer.
When the project is openen JH_table1 is in the entity list.
When JH_table1 is seleced in the entity list no fields are visible. (so far so good)
But when I double click on JH_table1 in the entity list a table is added with 3 columns a, b, c?
Is this a bug?
Is it possible to make sure column C is not visible/addable in report builder?
Kind regards

Multiple 1:N Tables In Single Report Builder Report
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.

Dynamic Refresh Of Report Model In The Report Builder
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.

Report Builder Report Models On Top Of Analysis Services


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?

Can't Create A Report That Uses Related Tables On Report Builder

How can I achieve this goal and add this report to a SharePoint Page?

Converting Report Desinger Files To Report Builder


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.

Is Such A Report Possible Using SSRS 2005 Report Builder?
I have RS 2005 SP1. I have a report model developed and deployed.


I have a scenario and I am not sure if it is possible to create a report for this scenario using the report builder. Let's say I have a customers entity and address entity that is related to the customer's entity as a 1-many relationship. I have the effective date on the address that specifies the date from which the address is effective. A customer will have multiple records in address with the latest effective date as the latest address of the customer.


Suppose, I need to create a report using the report builder to get the list of latest address for customers, how can I do it? I know it can be done using the report designer using a query that uses the group by clause. But can it be done using report builder?


Thanks in advance.

Exporting Report Builder Tabular Report To CSV

A simple tabular Report Builder report was written to feed another system that requires quoted CSV. I have two issues when exported:

1) I can't get control over the exported column names. Currently, they are exported as "FIELDNAME_Value".

When I try to change the column headings in the designer, it has no effect on the exported column names

When I create a New Field and specify my desired column name (e.g., COMPANY), the export appears as COMPANY_Value.

How do I control these names for the CSV export?

2) The spec calls for quoted text. In my export, only values with special characters are quoted.

Thanks in advance.

Report Builder Error When Running Report
Hello everyone,

I've come across an unusual error on some of our machines.  I'm trying to track down why only certain ones will give an error.  I thought it might have something to do with .NET 2.0 not being installed, but I assume that they wouldn't even be able to launch Report Builder if this is the case.  I'm at the point now where I've been told these machines have .NET 2.0.  I plan on trying to verify soon, but I thought I'd get everyone's opinion on what it could be.

With even the simplist report (just 1 field dragged onto the report) the following error appears: "Report execution error  The report might not be valid or the server could not process the data."  When I clicked on the details, the following appears: "The numeric portion of 0pt cannot be parsed as a unit of type Point.  -----  The type initializer for 'Microsoft.ReportingServices.Design.Constants' threw an exception."

This model was created with Business Intelligence Development Studio and we're using SQL 2005 Enterprise.

Anyone have any thoughts on what this could be or how I can better troubleshoot it?

This is a social services type application which is used by mutlitple service providers so organisations get twitchy about other organisations being able to see detailed client info. on the application the security stops this but at am a t a loss as to how to best restirct access to an organisation won client data.


any thoughts? is this somehting that can be configured through the reprt model and the report builder user account?


few ideas or advise would eb v helpful,

Report Builder Report Possibility?
This may not be possible, but I wanted to see what some of the experts' opinions are here.

One of our users has created a report in Report Builder.  I want to take this report, post it to a folder and allow her employees to run the report.

I've put it in a folder called "Reference Line Reports" and gave browser permission to a list of users.  These users are able to run the report (without having access to Report Builder or the report model).

When they try to utilize the "infinite clickthrough" functionality, I get the following error.

The permissions granted to user '<domain><username>' are insufficient for performing this operation. (rsAccessDenied)

If I give one of these users access to the "report builder" they no longer get the error.  The problem is that we don't want them to run the report builder (giving unrestricted access).  I just want to be able to give them a report builder report with the clickthrough ability.

I would like to disclaim that we have not upgraded to SP1 (or CTP SP2 yet).  Has anyone seen a similar problem or know if this was something fixed in sp1?

Thank you,

How To Open A RDL Report In Report Builder ?
I have 2 files for a report (rdl and data). If I am trying to open the report using the File->Open->File->*.RDL , the VS will open the XML report definition.

Summary Only Report With Report Builder

I have been trying to figure out how to develop a summary only report with no luck.  I have tried several groupings but still cannot suppress the detail.  Has anyone been successful in creating this type of report?

Thanks in advance.

Duplicates Report In Report Builder
I have a need to allow the users to create what we call "Duplicate Reports" using Report Builder.  It's the classic select to get duplicates:
select columnA, count(*)
from tableA
group by ColumnA
Having count(*) > 1
I cannot seem to get this to translate into a query in Report builder.  I've tried adding columnA to the table on the report canvas, grouping on columnA and creating a field called RecCount, that consists of count(columnA) and placing that in the table on the report canvas then adding a filter that says where RecCount > 1.  When I generate the report it says no data meets the criteria, when I know we have data that meets the criteria.
The reason we are doing this in Report Builder is that the column that contains duplicates can vary, one day it can be columnA, the next day it can be columnB.  We are just trying to give the users the power to create the reports so they don't have to wait on the DBA staff to do it for them.

This is such a simple thing, there must be a way to do it, but I haven't found the magic combination yet.  Any help would be appreciated.

Cannot Delete Report From Report Builder
We have successfully implemented Forms Authentication with Reporting Services.  While users can create new reports and modify existing reports in Report Builder without a problem, the "Delete" option is grayed out. 
The "Delete" option is even grayed out for the all-powerful "admin" user defined in the RS configuration files.
There is no problem deleting reports using Report Manager.
What security setting is Report Builder checking when it determines whether the delete option should be available or not?

Report Manager And Report Builder
Hi All,

Just wanted to know if this is normal. Here's my situation.

I'm using the SQL Server Express 2005 with Advanced Services.

When I go to my Report Manager page, http://localhost/reports$sqlexpress, I don't see any link for report builder. I've read some articles that I should be able to run the Report Builder from here. Maybe I read it wrong or something?

Also, since I don't have the link, I would have to type the complete URL for the report builder, http://localhost/reportserver$sqlexpress/reportbuilder/reportbuilder.application
. It runs the application fine. Then when I try to enter the Site or Link, which is http://localhost/reportserver$sqlexpress/, I get an error on the Get Started Panel saying "Report Builder and Report Models" is not supported in this edition of reporting services."

Does it really not support Report Builder and Report Model if I'm using SQL Server Express 2005 with Advanced Services?
