I need to expand my page width and height. The report designer and report viewer allows me to do that. The expanded page does not export to the PDF Format. I am stuck width 6 1/4 x 8/12 for the PDF format. I am using the windows report viewer.
I have designed a matrix report to display activities for which I added a table with in one of the cell When I run the report, I see activities but the row alignment is not proper and also when there are no records it displays blank.
Will the width property of a column be able to be set at run-time (i.e. ability to set the width of a column to an expression) in SQL Reporting Services 2008? One problem I have seen is the inability to set the width of columns in a report when you you have several columns whose order is determined based on parameters.
Lets say I have 2 columns in a report and two fields from the database which will populate those columns: 1 field that is varchar(5) and one which is varchar(50). If I do not know which column each field will go to until runtime how am I supposed to adjust the column width? Letting the column width be set by an expression would solve everything as I could pass the width in to the report. As it stands now, I would have to set each column's width to accomodate a field of type varchar(50) in order to avoid wrapping of data.
You could say just create 2 reports, one for each case, but what if I had 15 fields? 20?how to dynamically set the width of a column? Will the width of a column be able to be set at run-time in SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 via expression or some other means?
Hi, Does any know how to increase a session timeout for Report Creation uing SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services. Iam trying to export a report (to a .pdf) using SQL 05 reporting services. However, it seems that the the query is timing out coz of session-time out. Can anyone tell me how to increase this value ?
I have an Expression with two different Texts. I would life for the Left part to be Left Aligned and the Right Part be Right Aligned.
Region 5 Region 2 7
However I can only use spaces and it shows up like this
Region 5 Region2 7
It counts the number of spaces between the first text and second. I want it to be normalized so I figured left and right align. I have tried placeholders but the placeholders only accept 1 align. When i change the second placeholder alignment it also changes the first alignment.
We run 2014 enterprise. Can parts of the phrase that goes into a text box be forced to go to designated lines in that box? For instance if I have the phrase aaaaa bbbbb ccccc ddddd going into my text box , can I force a carriage return after each word (eg aaaaa) within the textbox?

Is it possible to make an SSRS report print to pdf and save itself automatically every time that report is run. Basically the user won't notice anything different, but on the back end a pdf is saved to a network location?
I have installed reporting services from SQL Express SP1 package. OS is Windows 2000 SP4. Just after installation "Reporting services" service has StartMode=Automatic and LogOnAS=LocalSystem as shown in SQL Server Configuration Manager. When system is rebooted reporting services state is Stopped and there is 2 errors in System log: 1. Timeout (30000 milliseconds) waiting for the SQL Server Reporting Services (REPS) service to connect. 2. The SQL Server Reporting Services (REPS) service failed to start due to the following error: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. If i select "start" from service's context menu then it starting normally and it's state becomes Running. What can i do to make reporting services starting automatically on system load?
We are having a table report which has set of columns where the visibility is made false based on report parameters. It works fine and the table automatically shrinks. But, the page width remains as early and has lot of blank space in it. It also causes printer to print many blank pages.
Is there a way to control pagewidth dynamically? Thought of adding a custom assembly to control page width - but how to access the page that is getting displayed. "this" will refer to the the assembly class instead of report as such.
Is it possible to set the parameter option to "Select all" after the options in the parameter have been filtered by another parameter? For example:
Parameter Area contains Europe, North America, South America. Parameter Country contains the country's that are in Europe, North America and South America.
When the Area Parameter is set to Europe, the country parameter only contains the country's that are in Europe. When you want to see the complete dataset in the report again, you change the Area Parameter to Europe, North America and South America again, and press view report.
Then the Country Parameter only has the country's that are in Europe selected, so the dataset is still filtered to the European country's. Is it possible to automatically set the country parameter to select all after the Area parameter has been se back to all Area's again?
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?
We have some reports that have optional columns. We have them working very nicely, with the column showing or hiding based on values in the report -- works great.
Except -- when the columns are present, the report spans onto two pages, when exported to PDF, in width. That's understandable, as there's a lot of extra data, and exactly what we want. However, when the columns are not present, we get empty pages instead, because the report doesn't automatically contract back onto the size that fits on one page.
Changing the report to a Matrix won't work, as the hidden columns on some of these come as sets of three, where each column in the three has different formatting (different widths, format codes, etc).
I have two charts which are based on their own separate datasets. One chart shows data aggregated by MONTH, the other chart shows data aggregated by WEEK. I have put both of these charts inside a rectangle and set their visibility based on whether or not there is data returned by their respective datasets. This part is working just fine.
However, I have added a tablix to the report, deleted all columns and rows leaving only one remaining row/column so it looks like a textbox. This tablix is sitting on top of the two charts. The problem i'm having is that when both charts return no data and they do not show up in the report, the tablix still remains visible. I need to set the visibility but based on a condition between the two different datasets behind each chart.
Here's what I need: If ONE of the charts returns data, then I need the tablix to be visible. If neither chart returns data, then I need the tablix to be invisible. I'm trying to write an IIF statement comparing the two datasets but I get inscope errors. Isn't it possible to compare values which are contained in two separate datasets in SSRS?
Seems like something like the following logic should work:
IIF(CountRows("Monthly_DataSet") > 0 OR CountRows("Weekly_DataSet") > 0 , FALSE, TRUE)
Obviously the above expression will return syntax errors, but you'll get the point as to how i'm thinking. How can I set the visibility of the tablix based on these two charts?
I have a remote report ... I need to call one of two stored procedures depending on which parameters were passed to the report. (Both stored procedures return the same fields.) Does SQL Reporting Services allow you to switch the dataset or stored procedure name dynamically? If so, where do I put the logic? Right now I have it working with one stored procedure. I'm thinking that I should just make one stored procedure that takes all parameters and calls one of the other two stored procedures. Do I have any options besides this?
i have a ssrs report in which i have creating rows with heading of months name from jan to dec i.e. jan|feb|mar|apr|....i have a parameter start date.i want when i enter start date from march supoose i enter date 03/22/2015 then display months from mar to dec.
I have a problem using the table object. I have columns that I sometimes want to show, and I want the page to run off the edge and be two pages. However, usually I'm hiding many of the columns and the table "shrinks" enough to fit on one page. When this happens, the table looks right on the first page, but I get blank pages after it, because the report itself will not shrink.
Has anyone found out how to dynamically create report width.
If I have 20 columns on a report all of 2cm, then report will be 40cm width.
If I display the columns based on specific criteria using the iif function and then setting the an expression for the Visibility Hidden property, the report could potentially reduce in width.
I cannot see how to build an expression for the report width or table width, to accommodate the potential change in the width of the report when columns are not shown, thus it pages incorrectly, leaving huge white space on the right of the report when columns are hidden... has anyone come across this requirement, and hopefully a solution for it?
I want to set the default value of the parameter based on the query result, when the current_status parameter is set as "opened" I want a certain date value to be displayed in the next parameter (start date), if it is set as closed I want a different date value to be displayed in the next parameter (start date), so I created the dataset with the query given below and assigned the default value to the query fields start and end date, however my Report parameters are not changing as expected.
IF @current_status = 'Opened' SELECT DISTINCT cast(DATEADD(yy, DATEDIFF(yy, 0, getdate()), 0) AS date) AS Start_Date1, cast(MAX(estcompletion_date) AS DATE) AS End_date FROM <Table Name> ELSE IF @current_status = 'Closed' SELECT distinct cast(DATEADD(yy, DATEDIFF(yy, 0, getdate()), 0) AS date) AS Start_Date1, cast(getdate() AS DATE) AS End_date FROM <Table Name>
