Print Table Format

I want to print the format of a table. You can view the format from enterprise manager under properties, but I was wondering if there is some command that you can use in query analyser to view the stucture of a table?

Print Format Of Linked Reports
Having just discovered that linked reports do not retain any print formating applied to the original report I thought I'd check out the forum and see if it was just me having a senile moment or if Microsoft had in fact dropped a clanger of massive proportion.
After reading one or two questions from other RS users it does seem as if Microsoft have stuck again and completely diminished a useful feature by stripping it of anything, well....... useful.  Well done MS, you once again have my applause for mind-boggling ineptitude of what should be impossible magnitude.  Ah, you've got to laugh.
Maybe this and other bugs with RS2005 will be ironed out in Microsoft Reporting Services 2008 - The Search for More Money.

Format Print Range When Converted To Excel?
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?

Open A Report In A Print Friendly Format

Hi experts,


What I am trying to do is  to open an existing report in a Print Friendly format .
What is the simplest way to do this using Visual Studio?

Here's the sort of thing I hope is feasible:

I can open my Report on a web page , then on that page can be a button / link for the user in case they want to open
that report in a separate window.
So I'd like to jump to that page by jumping to an URL and sending all parameters

something like :

http://Dev_Server/Reports/Pages/Report.aspx?ItemPath=%2fMy+Reports%2fTest+Report&rsaramOne=Parameters!paramOne.value + paramTwo=Parameters!paramTwo.value + etc all other parameters , I have on that report

Any suggestions would be really appreciated .

Just want to be able to print out each table structure with record info. Don`t need the actual data printed, just the table/record structure.

How To Print A Table Design
How can I print a table design. I know that I can display the design by right clicking on a table and selecting DESIGN. However, there are no options in this screen to print the design.

I also tried creating a diagram for a table. I can print the design from the diagram window as long as it fits in the window. However, when I have more columns than can fit on my screen, the print command will only print what is displayed.

Is there an easy way to print the design of a table in SQL 2000?

Table Footer Does Not Print On A Separate Page
I'm using SSRS SP2.  I have a table with 1 group defined.  I have a group footer that includes sub totals for each group.  I have a table footer that includes my grand totals, but this footer will NOT print on a separate page even though I have 'Page Break At End' checked for the group.  My groups correctly start on a new page, but when I get to my Grand Total footer line, it prints just after the last group sub-total line.
Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

Print Barcodes With The Active X Print Control
We are having problems printing Reports (when printing by clicking on the AcitiveX print control), where the font for the fields are set to "C39HrP24DhTt" (barcode).

While viewing the report it displays as Barcodes but while printing, the Barcode does not get printed, but the string gets printed.

Environment: SSRS 2005

Using the ReportViewer Control in a .Net 2.0 Web App to render the reports.

BarCodes print fine in the following situations:

1. When the Report is exported to Excel and when printed from there

2. When you click on the print button on Internet Explorer

3. When saving as html (from view source) and opening that html document and printing.

BarCodes do NOT get printed in the following situation:

1. When printing by clicking on the "Print" (Active X Control) icon. Even the "Print Preview" does not show the Barcode.

Reporting Services From WebBrowser Control - Print = &&"unable To Load Client Print Control&&"
UPDATE #2: When it said "Do you want to install Microsoft SQL Server" I said "yes" and that caused it to work. I exited and re-ran and now the print runs w/o the "install SQL Server" (If the prompt had said "Do you want to install the print dialog" we wouldn't be having this discussion...) 

UPDATE: After posting this i discovered that the same thing occurs when attempting to print the report direct from IE6: First a dialog pops up "Do you want to install this software?" Name: Microsoft SQL Server. When I click "Don't Install" I get the dialog "unable to load client print control." Since this happens direct from IE6 I suspect it's browser settings. I'll resume tomorrow and post a followup.

My WinForm C# app integrates Reporting Services by calling them from WebBrowser controls. The problem is attempts to print cause a dialog: "unable to load client print control."

I've read prior posts that say "enable Active-X in your browser" - I don't know how to do that from a WebBrowser control.

Any ideas how to support Reporting Services "Print" from within a WebBrowser control?

Changing Table Format
Hi there,

Its probably easier to draw this problem than describe it, so here goes:

I have a sales forecast table (A,B,C are products [PRODUCT], the dates refer to the month for which the forecast is [FORECAST_DATE], and the integer is the forecast sales qty [FORECAST_QTY])

A 01/03/2004 30
B 01/03/2004 28
C 01/03/2004 24
A 01/04/2004 11
B 01/04/2004 09
C 01/04/2004 41

I need to convert the table into a more sensible format, like this:

(NB ...Dots are just there to help with formatting - basically I'm talking about a field for FORECAST_03_2004, FORECAST_04_2004 etc etc)

........ 01/03/2004....01/04/2004

I'm really no t-SQL guru, and I can't seem to get any joy out of BOL. It must only be a tiny bit of code. Can anyone help?

Thanks very much

Sql 2000 Table Format
There is a table with the following fields:
Usercode is a varchar fields whereas the other fields are integrers.

Let's say this is what the table contains at present:

id year Usercode A2 A3 B2 B3

1 2005  2BM  12 7 9 11
2 2002 BB1  87 98 4 32
3 1999 3NS  45 32 88 12

The question is, how can I produce something like the following table using the above table:
The idea is to show the final table (at the very bottom) on a web page. So I am thinking if I get the table right in sql server then the rest is fine.

               2BM      BB1      3NS

A2         12          87          45
A3         7           98            32
B2        9            4              88
B3        11          32           12

Since I am using sql server 2000, I do not think I can use something like the pivot sql functionality as sql 2005 allows.
In addition to the above I would like to go one step further to have a sql to produce the following result (Notice the extra texts):

                                                2BM            BB1             3NS

user info
positive nums
A2                                           12               87                  45
yesterdays info
negative values
A3                                           7                 98                   32
contact manage
B2                                           9                 4                      88
contact method
B3                                         11                32                    12
