Programatically Show/hide Group Headers/footers In Reports

 I have a report that has three levels of grouping including headers (containing titles) and footers (containing summary values). I would like to programatically show/hide these header/footer sections based on a Show/Hide paramter. Is that possible? Currently I work around the problem by just having two physical reports (one with the header/footers, one without)

Show/Hide Details And Sub-Reports
We were having a standards meeting today at my company and we talked about the show/hide details button in the UI.  We hide reports all the time because they are sub-reports and aren't meant to be run on their own.  If we can't hide the "Show Details" button and we can't ban the user with security from running the sub-report because they need to run the Main report which runs the sub-report, then what do we do?


I'd think we have the have the ability to to hide things, or least a creative way to hide them; but I don't want to deploy sub-reports to wierd places just to get around this.


The following posts reference this topic, but didn't address it; yet raise this question.






p.s.  Just my own two cents, it would seem like a nice feature to be able to hide the "show details" button because there are advantages to hiding things.

Programatically Control &&"show/hide Parameters&&" (chevron Symbol Function)
I'd like the state of the function bars to stay at whatever it was as the user moves from one report to the next rather than opening to full each time a new report is opened. Can this be done through a setting or programatically at teh report level? Is there a <default_toolbars_OpenState> tag or something?

Thanks in advance.

BCP To Csv (that Part Is Ok) WITH Dynamic File Headers And Footers (NOT Ok)

Hi All.
I am building an SSIS job that will export some data to a csv then ftp it to a remote site. 
I have been able to create the csv alright, but I need to add header and footer lines to the csv.
The header must be:

Filename+ crlf (will not change)
File type+ crlf (will not change)

Create date+ crlf (obviously changes) -- format is mmddyyyy as text

And the footer is:

Filename+ crlf (will not change)
File type+ crlf (will not change)

Create date+ crlf (obviously changes) -- format is mmddyyyy as text

Total rows+ crlf (obviously changes)
So I need to first open the file, count the number of rows, then add the header and footer lines.
I would like to do this as a step in ssis, as a function (not by calling a compiled assembly or anything like that).  I have no experience with, and haven't been able to find any snippets on the web that seem to work.  Can anybody lend a hand?  thx.  David

Images (in Dataset) In Report Headers/Footers

I have an image stored in a dataset that I would like to place in the page header and footer.  Unfortunately dataset fields can not be placed in headers/footers.
Embedded pics in the project and/or report are NOT an option as the report must pull the image from the database.   UNLESS there is a way to embed it FROM the dataset.
Normally I use =ReportItems!FieldName, but this doesn't seem to work when dealing with images. 
I put the image in the header row the table holding the report information, but there are some pitfalls. Consider the following: put the Image in the top left cell of the header rows (A1) , put my Report Title in Cell (A2) and finally put =Now() in cell (B2).

When the report renders Cell (A1) has grown to accomodate the size of the image, Cell (A2) is fine, but cell (A3 - the date-) is pushed expected (boooo!) 
I used the following function =Fields!ReportTitle.Value & chr(10) & chr(13) & Fields!ReportDate.Value in (A2) a slick solution, but the padding is different and I need different font sizes and weights. (...almost) 
I moved the image in (a1) and the rest of the fields following respecfully (B1, C1, D1...) but with parameters the header is now practically half the page (...ok so that was a bit of an stretch)
I tried the RepeatsWith property and couldn't get it to work????  Am I using it correctly?  I have a table in the body of a report (table1).  Above it, I place the image.  In the image properties, I choose RepeatWith and select table1, I expect to see the image repeat on each page, but that is not the case.  I'm probably missing a simple explanation.
I even tried to pass the image as a parameter.  URRRNT!  At least with my experience. 
Have I exhausted all possibilities without extensive code?
All I'm trying to do is line up the Image with the report Title/date/parameter values in the HEADER making the report look pretty.
Thanks for the help...

Reporting Services - Fields Cannot Be Used In Page Headers Or Footers
Hello all,

I am creating a report in SSRS and the data is obtained through a stored procedure. One of the parameters is Begin_Date. This is simply a date field. I need to have it on the Page Header section. However, when I placed it there and ran the report, I received the following error -

Error2[rsFieldInPageSectionExpression] The Value expression for the textbox ‘begindate’ refers to a field. Fields cannot be used in page headers or footers.

Is there a way around? I have never faced such a problem when I created reports in Crystal or ActiveReports. Please let me know whether I am missing anything.

Thanks in advance,

Column Group Footers In A Horizontal Report
Hi all.

I've created a horizontal report using a matrix according to the quite useful article Horizontal Tables, but there's one thing I'm trying to do that I'm not having any luck figuring out how to do, and that is creating a footer column for a column group that contains a sum of the values in some of its columns.

In other words, here's how I would like to have it look...

Quarter 1 Total
Quarter 2 Total

Tier 1

Tier 2

The fields in the dataset are Month, Tier1, Tier2, Year and Quarter. I've created a group on Year & Quarter, tried right clicking and selecting Subtotal, but that seems to add a subtotal column after every month, not at the end of the quarter group as I want.

Any ideas on what I need to do? Is this even possible?

Hide And Show Parameters In SSRS
I am doing report development against OLAP. I have Parameter1 and then my second parameter is a boolean (True/False). I want to show Parameter 3/Paramater 4 based on selection of Param2 (So, if true, show Param3, if false, show Param 4) and please remember we are doing this in a sequence.

Is this even possible in SSRS 2005? If yes, how the hell do I achieve it.

Show/hide Report Columns

I'm currently investigating whether SQL Reporting Services might be the right solution to some reporting requirements I have been given (web reports).

There is a requirement that some of the columns are hidden to begin with and can be shown by clicking on the header of one of the other columns. E.g. There is a list of clients and a "Total Revenue" column, clicking on the "Total Revenue" column header would show an additional 5 or so columns which show a breakdown of different figures that make up the total revenue.

So my question is this: Is it possible to show/hide columns by clicking on the headers of other columns in the report?

Show (or Hide) Only 1 Subtotal Column Ssrs 2k


I have a simple SSRS 2k Matrix report that has the following format:



                              SomeCampaign1                     SomeCampaign2 .......

                              Reward Points | Next Level      Reward Points | Next Level 

EmpName1                   5                       10                         1                    2

EmpName2                   1                         5                          2                    5



I basically want a single Grand total column at the end of the report making the report look like this:


                              SomeCampaign1                     SomeCampaign2

                              Reward Points | Next Level      Reward Points | Next Level             Total Points

EmpName1                   5                       10                         1                    2                               6

EmpName2                   1                         5                          2                    5                               3


I have these groups set up:








[Static Group]


The rewardspoints and nextlevel are the details i am showing.


I created the FakeColumn group above the Campaign group as I read somewhere on the web that you needed to use this and then use InScope function to set the totals column??. I havent really got this to work.  All i seem to get is a Reward Point AND Next Level totals columns when i only want the Reward Point total.  I created a subtotal against the FakeColumnGroup


Has anybody got suggestions on how I simply hide the Next Level column or simply display a sinlge total column?  What I've found so far doesnt go into enough depth.


Thanks in advance,

Hide/Show Table Based On Parameter Selection!!!???
I'd like to hide/show a table based on selected parameters. In the current setup I have a matrix and two tables underneath that need to be displayed from time to time. First of I use a multi-value parameter called "Lieferart". Depending on the parameter I have set the visibility of the two tables with the following expression:

=iif(Parameters!lieferart.Value(0) like "Nagel%", False, True)
This expression doesn't work though, any ideas??? I am also unsure about what I have to do If multiple values from the parameter list are selected as Parameters!lieferart.value(0) doesn't necessarily need to have a label like "Nagel" included...

Modifying Repeating Group Headers So That They Are Different On Subsequent Pages
It is using a table to display a very large amount of data (a basic list of information) with groups. Each of the groups can span multiple pages, so the user may not realize where the grouping actually began (I am repeating the group headers). Therefore, I would like to modify the group header when it is repeated across multiple pages by simply adding the text, "(cont.)" to the header so the reader can easily see that the group started on a prior page. There does not appear to be any standard test function for this condition. Using Previous() for this case does not work. This cannot be a new issue and must have been solved; any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Sorry if this has been asked before, I did search the forum but could not find an answer to this question...

Different Behavior Between VS And IE In Rendering Reports With Fixed Headers And A Document Map
I apologize in advance if this is something already addressed elsewhere (if so - please point me in that direction).

I have created a really simple report that allows 'drill-down' at the group level. To this report I also selected the 'Repeat header rows on each page' and 'Header should remain visible while scrolling' features and all worked as expected after deploying.

I then added a Document Map referencing the group level and that too worked within the VS environment. VS displayed a page that contained the requested group in plain view  and I could 'drill down' as expected.

But when I deployed the report and subsequently pulled it up in IE I noticed a slightly different behavior in that when selecting an entry from the document map, the start of that group got hidden behind the fixed header such that what was visible was perhaps 1 or 2 group records down. I had to scroll up to see the start of the group I had selected from the document map and then drill down from there.

Removing both the "Repeat header..." and "Header should remain ...." allows me to select a group from the document map (which is always at the top) - but in doing so I lose the fixed header feature.

Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Newbie Question Regarding Data Reports And Detail Headers.
Good morning,

I am working on a data report in visual studio (to reporting server).

the report shows product sales by date and groups by date with a toggle to aggregate sales up by date.

my question is this .... is it possible to get the report to show the header value for the toggle items INSIDE the group itself as a header rather than outside the group as a group header.

i guess it would be called a detail header.


i hope this makes sense.

How Can I Hide A Table Column Based On A Group ?
I am using Reporting Services 2000. If you find out that Reporting Services 2005 would resolve this issue, please lemme know also. But I want to mention that I would prefer a way to fix this without changing Reporting Services versions.

I have a table that has a group on ProductTypes. This group is set to PageBreak at end.
What I need to do is to conditionally hide an entire column based on the current group's ProductType.

Page 1 = Product 1 = Column 1 is visible
Page 1 = Product 1 = Column 2 is visible
Page 2 = Product 2 = Column 1 is hidden
Page 2 = Product 2 = Column 1 is visible

Can you help me figure this one out ? I've tried everything I found on the net, especially everything on this page :

JavaScript Section Missing From HTML/MHTML Reports When Accessed Programatically From Java Servlet
I'm trying to hook some existing SSRS reports into a Java-based web application we have. I was going to use URL access to the reports, save the output, and send that back to the user. There's no direct Internet access to the machine that has the database and reporting services running on it.
As part of my testing, I've run some reporting using URL access through IE7. Works great. But then I took that same URL, popped it in a test program (in Java) that makes a call to that URL and saves the result, and then spews it to the console. Redirect to a file and open the result in IE7 - the report isn't the same. Basically, there's a small <script></script> section that shows up when I run through the browser, but is missing from the programatically captured output. Since part of the problem manifested itself with respect to some image handling, I tried generating output at MHTML. My image came through, but there's still no <script>.
I've tried adding  rc:JavaScript=True to the URL, but that doesn't help in my program either.
Is there something simple I'm overlooking? It's very likely - I started playing with this 2 days ago, and I've not done the reports side. I'm just putting some "glue" together, basically.
The URL I'm trying to use is (wrapped deliberately and the protocol munged for editing purposes):

How To Show Duplicates In Reports
I'm trying to create a report in Sql Server 2005 Reporting Services where it will display duplicates rows in the reports. I'm unable to find the property that enables this. I would need something like HideDuplicates = false, but that is not the way it is intended to be used. If HideDuplicates is left blank, it seems to still hide duplicate values if the preceding row matches.

The report is a crosstab type, so we are using a Matrix for the report item. I'll illustrate with a simple example:

 This is what we currently get:


Type 1
Item 1

Item 2

Item 3

Type 2
Item 4

Item 5


This is what we want:


Type 1
Item 1

Type 1
Item 2

Type 1
Item 3

Type 2
Item 4

Type 2
Item 5

I'm sure its something simple, but we just cant seem to find the solution,

Make Tablix Column Group Show When Filter Returns No Rows
I'm running SQL Server 2008 Feb08 CTP and I've got a tablix with column groupings and row groupings which works nicely, I'm a becomming a big fan of the tablix.
However sometimes the filter I have on a column group returns no records and the whole column group disappears.
Is there any way to make this column appear with but with empty cells as I have another tablix down the page with the same columns and I want the columns to all line up on the multiple tablix.
In Version 2005 I used to achieve the equivalent of a column group within a table by adding a list with filter to the cell, this meant the column always was shown, the tablix allows does this much more elegantly but I'll have to go back to the old method if I can't make the column remain.
Am I just missing a simple option?

Report Headers Vs Page Headers
Hi, this is probably a simple question but I just can't figure it out. I'm using SQL Server Reporting Services 2005 sp1.

I'm trying to design a report that displays a particular embedded image on the first page, and then a different one on every subsequent page. I.e full, fancy company logo on the first page, and a trimmed down version on every other. In Crystal, I would have simply used the Report Header and Page Header sections to achieve this - easy.

However, in SQL Reporting Services, there is only a Page Header section - therefore whatever I place in the Page Header shows on every page. Now, I know how to stop it displaying on the first page, but I don't know how to display the other image instead.

I read in a support forum that it is possible to do this by "placing report items above or below your data regions" but I can't get it to work.

Grateful for any assistance.

My aim is to usecrystal enterprise so end users in our sales team can access reports ondemand for a given date range and client so I am trying to keep contactwith the database to a minimum.

So what i need to do is dividethe summary field by the maximum value for any entry in that summary.ieStock ValueBp 5Royal Dutch 10BG Group 2Total 6so for BP i need to 5/10 to give me 0.5.In this case, the above are all grouped, and then divided by the numberof sectors the stock is associaated with (to avoid double counting).these are then to be associated to the market cap of the stock, whichis a simple calc and irrelevant to this in CR i have the formula applied to the each grouped stock:Count ({log.LOGID},{log.stock})/{sector.sector_count}this works fine, but i dont seem to be able to then divide this by themaximum value for all stocks in that sector without returning an error(summary / running total field could not be created)ie (Count ({log.LOGID},{log.stock})/{sector.sector_count}) /maximum(Count ({log.LOGID},{log.stock})/{sector.sector_count})I can (and have in the existing process) do this in the details sectionof CR via grouping the data in SQL server and linking in anothertable/SP fo that data, but that involves having to run a seperatestored proc on SQL Server for each report/sector which obviouslyremoves any benefit of automation, so i need to be able to run thisfrom a grouped summary, not the details section.It all seems far too obvious so hopefully i am just making a smallerror or not finding a simple function within CR!!I know CR can't cope with charting 2 levels of formula within aformula, but this only uses one so cant see how that could be theproblem.apologies if this is long winded, thanks in advance for any help.Matt

&&"reports&&" Option Does Not Show Up In The Context Menu

I have a a microsoft sql server installed on my xp::
9.00.3042.00 SP2 Developer Edition
not being able to get the "reports" option (for customer reports) in the context menu (rightclicking on a database name) does it have to do with the version of the sql server I am running?
I have been told otherwise and I have reinstalled sp2 twice..
any help will be appreciated.
I do have bunch of report definition language files that I would like to use in custom reports, but... story goes on.

Server Error In '/Reports' Application Due To Forced Page Break In Group
Thought this was interesting, I got this error when trying to export a report into excel, other formats worked fine and it wasn€™t a large chunk of data (only 2882 records).  I took out the forced new page start between my groups & it worked perfectly. It looks like it doesn€™t matter what size the data is since I dwindled my data down to only 2 pages for testing but exporting to excel with a forced page break by group in Report Manager will not work.  Anyone see something similar?
