Reporting Services :: How To Determine And Parse Out Text Using VBA In A SSRS Expression

Jun 1, 2015

I have a data field in a SSRS Report that contains the requestor's User Id. Their ID is prefixed with "PRIV"...And I'm assuming that is the direct result of the network domain. I need to create a SSRS expression to determine if the User ID is prefixed with "PRIV" and then parse that out and use what's behind the "" as their true User Id.

example...."PRIVID123456" should appear as "ID123456" in the report data line.

Reporting Services :: Running Value Expression Within Lookup Expression In SSRS?

Oct 28, 2015

I have created 1 report with 2 datasets. This report is attached to the 1st dataset.For example,1st one is "Smallappliances", 2nd is "Largeappliances".

I created a tablix and, the 1st column extracts Total sales per Sales person between 2 dates from 1st dataset (Small appliances). I used running values expression and it works fine.

Now, I would like to add another column that extracts Total sales per sales person between 2 dates from 2nd dataset (Large appliances). I am aware that I need to use Lookup expression and it is giving me the single sales value rather than the total sales values. So, I wanted to use RunningValue expression within lookup table to get total sales for large appliances.

This is the lookup expression that I added for the 2nd column.

sum, " sales_person"),

I get this error when I preview the report.An error occurred during local report processing.The definition of the report is invalid.An unexpected error occurred in report processing.

(processing): (SortExpression ++ m_context.ExpressionType)

I would like to suppress the entire row in tablix if no data despite multiple expresions used in a text box.

If data the it will show per the DB data else it should not show anythig or leave it as blank row

The issue is where I have appended ";" and "'" in the expressions but still comes in the report output because it is appended even if no data.

Reporting Services :: Determine Objects Inhibiting Horizontal Shrink Of Tablix And / Or SSRS Report Size?

Jun 10, 2015

I am working on complex invoice document that handles various types of invoicing, credit, and progress bill customer facing documents.  I am faced with same problem I see many SSRS devs posting on.  And that is extra blank pages, being generated because the report width exceeds the width of the page.

My problem is I cannot shrink the horizontal width of the tablix and therefore the report width either...

While I would have done things differently if developing from scratch, the tablix in question has only one column and objects contained in rectangles are placed in the row/column cell.....The link to the image below shows the row I am currently working on.  Essentially all the client wants a columnar report with column lines, closed footers, etc...  so rather redoing the whole tablix, which I still might do, I am using rectangles with the column then lining them up.  Anyway, that is a whole 'nuther post.  My specific questions are:  

Invoice in Report Builder

1. In the image I have selected the parent rectangle.  The children are other rectangles and the data is with grandchildren textboxes that exist within those rectangles.  I clearly have a bit of right side white space in the main parent rectangle, but there is no sizing tool on a hover... just move tool.  And if I change the rectangle size in the prop form it just snaps back to the cell width.  How do I size the parent rectangle and keep if from expanding.

Here I am guessing that to actually reduce the horizontal width of tablix and then the report, I have to first decrease the parent width of the rectangles that occur in each row?

Reporting Services :: Writing SSRS Expression Using Scope Or Variable?

May 21, 2015

I have created a heat map and it is working pretty well. The only issue I am having is that the expression for the fill is using "DataSet1"



This is making the heatmap look at the whole dataset instead of just what I am grouping by. Within the Dataset there are Regions and Credit Unions. Since the Dataset is looking at an entire region, the heatmap is coloring based on all data for the region. I need to heatmap to color based on the Credit Unions in that region. The Credit Unions are a group. I need the group to be the value it is referencing in the heat map and not "DataSet1". I have been told to use scope or a variable but cannot get it to work correctly.

The sample expression that triggers this condition looks like this:

All cells after the first one that meets the condition Fields!VIOL_NOTE.Value="Internal" have a green background.

Reporting Services :: Value Expression For Text Box Specifies A Scope That Is Not Valid For Nested Aggregate

I'm trying to sum a column in a report. in Most columns I can just wrap the row level expression with "Sum()" and it works. However, I have run into a few that give the following error. The Value expression for the text box ‘Textbox241’ specifies a scope that is not valid for a nested aggregate.  The scope must be the same name of the scope specified by the outer aggregate or the name of a group or data region that is contained in the scope specified by the outer aggregate.Here is my row level expression that works.

Integration Services :: Expression To Parse Filename To A Date

Aug 7, 2015

I am very new to SSIS.  I need a package to iterate through files in folders and subfolders, evaluate the date of the file and delete them if they are over 90 days. I am using the following as a guide.  The reason I am not using a maintenance plan for this is that I did not see a way to use a built in maintenance plan task to copy files.  I already built a package that copies files to the destination.  Now I need to delete files in the destination that are over 90 days old.  

[URL] ...

I have a File System Task to delete files. I have a Script Task with a precedence constraint where I need to build an expression on the constraint between the Script Task and the File System Task for the delete.  

I have database backups in the format of SQLInstanceName_DatabaseName_BackupType_YYYYMMDD_XXXXXXX.bak.  

I created a variable to store the filename and I need an expression that will convert a file name like :

MySQLInstance_MyDB_DIFF_20150803_1700000.bak into 20150803, compare it to getdate -90 days.  

I created another variable for the Max File Age.  I built the below but when I click on Evaluate Expression I get an error stating, "The expression might contain an invalid token, an incomplete token, or an invalid element." 

DATEDIFF("dd",(DT_DATE)(SUBSTRING(RIGHT( @[User::strFileName], 20 ),1,8), GETDATE()) >  @[User::intFileMaxAge]

Reporting Services :: Dynamic Positioning Of Text Boxes In SSRS

Sep 30, 2015

I have a user table with Label and value fields where i would like to control the display of the text boxes based on the values selected in my user table.Can we adjust the text box positions dynamically based on the user table values.

Ex: Table

Label1 Field1 Label2  Field2  Label3 Field3
ID       100                           Dept   Sales

Report Design :

Label1: ID    Field1:100
Label2:          Field2:
Label3:Dept   Field3:Sales

Expected Result :

Label1: ID    Field1:100
Label3:Dept   Field3:Sales

In my table i don't have values for Label 2 & Field 2 , can we adjust the spacing conditionally to be utilized by Label3 & Field3 in SSRS.

Note : Above mentioned data is just for an example and in my actual report i can have more than 3 columns and report is looking ugly with all the spacing if i don't have data in all the fields.

Reporting Services :: Show Text And Embedded Image In SSRS TextBox

Oct 7, 2015

I'm developing an SSRS report using VS2013 Premium with SSDT - BI v12.0.2430.0. SSRS is hosted on a SQL 2014 instance.The underlying database table has a varchar(max) field which stores text and embedded image data from a third-party application.  I can extract this text, save it as an html file and open that in a browser.  It renders complete with any embedded image.Meanwhile, the report textbox has its Placeholder Properties, Markup type set to HTML.  Yet when I run the report, the text is displayed but any embedded image is not.Is there any approach I can take, perhaps transforming the varchar(max) data to another format in the query for my dataset, that can show the text and any embedded image in my report?  Or is it that the TextBox control is limited, not unreasonably, to text only?  If so, is there another control I could use, perhaps custom or third-party?

Reporting Services :: Using OR Statement In Expression?

Jun 23, 2015

I have a scenario where I would like to use the 'OR' statement in SSRS expression.

I have the following fields:

GLnumber, ProgramControl, GLAmount & EscrowDepositAndWithdrawal.

What I would like to do is as follow:

If GLnumber is 12200.22162 then I would like to take EscrowDepositAndWithdrawal


If ProgramControl is 'escrow' then I would like to take EscrowDepositAndWithdrawal

OTHERWISE I would like my expression to take GLAmount My expression looks something like this:

=IIf(Fields!GLNumber.Value = "12200.221620" OR Fields!ProgramControl.Value = "ESCROW",Fields!EscrowDepositAndWithdrawal.Value,Fields!GLAmount.Value)

It appears only the first IF statement is true.  It does not appear that the OR statement never be true.

I am not sure why the OR statement never satisfied. I know I have a record with ProgramControl = "ESCROW".

"¶m1=" & Replace(Parameters!param1.Value,"&","' + escape('&') + '") &
"¶m2=" &Replace(join(Parameters!param2.Value,","),"&","' + escape('&') + '") &

but it is not working and giving the below error.The path of the item ' ' is not valid. The full path must be less than 260 characters long; other restrictions apply. If the report server is in native mode, the path must start with slash. (rsInvalidItemPath).

How to handle the "&" in the expression?

In the example shown in image below VMAINT should be 6 days and VHOUS should be 20 days which would then both add up to the VLOSS of 26 days
I cant currently fix these days at source for a number of reasons hence I need to fix these on the report output.How can I add one day onto each of my Void Days Total for every code except VLOSS which is always correct.
