SSRS Dynamic Header
In a crosstab, how do I make a header increase/decrease dynamically when the columns chosen increase/decrease?
Please reply ASAP
I need some help. I am writing a report in SSRS 2005 that I then need to export to Excel. When I put a report header I would expect the header to not display in the Excel spreadsheet until the Print Preview or the Print. The report footer works just fine I put some text in the footer, and it shows up in the footer. The header though, shows up as a row in the Excel spreadsheet that then causes columns to merge. How do I get the report header to act like a page header?
I have a need to display on screen AND email a pdf report to email addresses specified at run time, executing the report with a parameter specified by the user. I have looked into data driven subscriptions, but it seems this is based on scheduling. Unfortunately for the majority of the project I will only have access to SQL 2005 Standard Edition (Production system is Enterprise), so I cannot investigate thoroughly.
So, is this possible using data driven subscriptions? Scenario is:
1. User enters parameter used for query, as well as email addresses.
2. Report is generated and displayed on screen.
3. Report is emailed to addresses specified by user.
Any tips on how to get this working?
I am tryign to keep the headers fixed, on a 2005 report.
Hence In the Layout section for table settings properties,I Set the FixedHeader setting to True to keep the headers visible as you scroll down .
However, when I scroll down the report, the headers stay fixed, BUT IT OVERLAPS With the rows of data.
Any idea why this would happen?
I have created a report. In page header of this report, I have added Ver#, ID# and Page number on the top right corner. But when I view the report, it comes correctly in the first page and in all remaining pages, it is shifted towards left. I can€™t figure out why it is coming so. It looks very weird for me.
I am new to SSRS
I would like to place time /date in page header
I have like '="Report Time: " & Globals!ExecutionTime'
and also page title
How can i do that
I am running into an issue while trying to export data to a spreadsheet. I actually don't know how to do it... Considering I only know the column names by the time I execute my procedure, I can't use the Excel Destination to export data.
With DTSs I would create an ActiveX script to execute the procedure which loads the results into a temp table. After that I would select everything from this temp table and load the results into a record set, looping through this record set to create the destination spreadsheet with the dynamic column names.
When it comes to SSIS we are advised to write vb.net scripts instead of ActiveX... These ones do not have records set's but dataset's, which at first glance are only applicable to xml and not xls files (when I try to define a variable as a dataset in my vb.net code, I face a message saying: Missing reference required to assembly System.Xml...).
How I would create this spreadsheet using a vb.net code in SSIS packages? Please, help...
I'm using the dynamic data header of the Matrix data region... My data source return a dataset with 2 months, e.g. May and July, that should be used as dynamic header. And some amounts fields that should be the rows associated to its header.
But the report just displays 1 month, the first one (May).
Does anyone know why it doesn't work correctly?
I guess that it should expand right the headers. I'm correct?
Hi, I am currently trying to create a report the dynamicaly groups from parameters. The grouping part works fine but I need to show the parameter label name or the field referenced by a parameter.
This is the expression I have written to do this. The problem seems to be is with the true part of the iif statement. The false displays fine in the group header. The Parameters!Param2.Label also displays if used on its own.
This is the error that is fires back when I run the report.
The Value expression for the textbox €˜textbox4€™ contains an error: The expression referenced a non-existing field in the fields collection.
I am quite new to SSRS and I am using VS2005 pro.
I am trying to work on a database with 3 tables. To make it easier I have created a couple of temp tables to work out the syntax.
CREATE TABLE #owner
[NameId] tinyint IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
[Name] varchar(50) NOT NULL
INSERT INTO #owner VALUES ('ME');
INSERT INTO #owner VALUES ('Other');
CREATE TABLE #propertyType
[TypeId] tinyint IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
[Name] varchar(50) NOT NULL
INSERT INTO #propertyType VALUES ('Home');
INSERT INTO #propertyType VALUES ('Car');
CREATE TABLE #property
[NameId] tinyint NOT NULL,
[TypeId] tinyint NOT NULL,
[Value] varchar(50) NOT NULL
INSERT INTO #property VALUES (1,1, 'Blue');
INSERT INTO #property VALUES (1,2, 'Black');
INSERT INTO #property VALUES (2,1, 'Red');
INSERT INTO #property VALUES (2,2, 'Black');
DROP TABLE #owner;
DROP TABLE #propertyType;
DROP TABLE #property
| NameId | Name |
| 1 | ME|
| 2 | other |
| TypeId | Name |
| 1 | Home |
| 2 | Car |
| NameId | TypeId | Value |
| 1 | 1 | Blue |
| 1 | 2 | Black |
| 2 | 1 | Red |
| 2 | 2 | Black |
Where property value is some arbitrary detail. The real propertyType has 50 or 60 rows and not every property has all of the values. I am trying to create a pivot table that would look like so that I can present the data in an easier to understand format:
[Owner | Home | Car ]
[ME | Blue | Black ]
[Other| Red | Black ]
The propertyTypes are added often, and I don't really have the ability to change them. There is a unique constrant on property on nameid and typeid so there will never be two of the same property with the same owner. Any help would be very helpful.
How to display an database image in the Report page header of sql server reporting service?
How to add a link to the child report in the page header section of a report in SSRS 2005 ?Basically I want a link to the child report which should appear on all the pages of the report if the report has multiple pages.
I needed a way to sort dynamically in a Reporting Services report by selecting a Column Name dynamically from a dropdown list.
Im building a horizontal bar graph, but according to the parameters it could have a different number of bars, how can i make the SSRS resize the graph?
Or how can i make ssrs to give the same size as a table right next to it?
How is it possible to populate a table with fields dynamically?
For example, the stored procedure knows which and how many fields to retrieve based on the parameters passed.
At present I can drag and drop fields into the details section of the table. But this is when you know for sure which fields to retrieve. Not sure what to do if you do not know in advance which fields the stored procedure retrieves to display on the report.
Does anyone know if there is a way to dynamically set the chart type (i.e. pie, line, column, etc.) for your report in SSRS? I want the customer to be able to chose which type of chart they'd like to see.
I've looked all over the Internet and can't find anything.
Any help would be appreciated.
I guess I should clarify a little. I am using an ASP.NET 2.0 page written in C# and using a ReportViewer control.
The ReportViewer displays an rdlc.
I have one table which holds all the information for the forms and i have another table which holds list of all the form fields. Now these two tables are mapped and that table give me list of all the fields in any forms.
To get the information about the users who filled different forms first i need to query the tblFormsToFormFields and get the list of all the fields for that form and then use that fields list in the select query to get the result.
In my report i need to provide the drop down with the list of all the forms and then display the information for all the customers for that particular form with the list of the form fields.
Is there in SSRS 2005 i can use C# or any programming language to create Columns in the report dynamically as there will be different fields for each form.
I am having hard time to populate dynamic column based on parameters.For eg.
Parameter-->Dates : Date(1) ,Date(2),Date(3)....Date (n)
(Multiple-Parameters is selected by drop down list )
Id | Currency |Country |District |Date(1)- transaction |Date(2)-transaction |Date(n)
1 | $$ |USA |123 |523238 |643763573 |62376264
Now requirement is If user enter 1 date then only single column date(1) populate if enter (n) dates then n column Date(1) ,Date(2),Date(3)....Date (n) populate.
kindly suggest me any solution requirement.
I tried to bind Visibility property of column with Parameters passed.So that user can see only those column for which they pass values.I am getting error "Index was outside the bounds of the array"
I write this expression under Column(Date)-->Property-->visibility --> hidden--> expression
=iif(len(Parameters!VALUEDATE.Value(1)) > "0",false,true)
Kindly suggest any working solution .Thank you
For the Data Driven Subscription in SSRS we are using the following stored procedure
In Step 3 - Create a data-driven subscription
create procedure spRSGetReportSettings
@ReportID as integer
set nocount on
declare @t as table(y int not null primary key)
@cols as nvarchar(max),
@y as int,
@sql as nvarchar(max)
(select N',' + quotename(y) as [text()]
from (select ParameterName as y from Reportsettings where reportid=1) as Y
order by y
For XML Path('')),1,1,N'');
set @sql=N'select * from
(select reportid,parametername, parametervalue from ReportSettings where reportid= ' + Cast(@ReportID as varchar(5)) +' ) as D
pivot(min(parametervalue) for parametername in(' + @cols +N')) as p'
exec sp_executesql @sql
Basically the idea is to maintain a single report parameter setting table for multiple reports.
Structure of the table is as given below
ReportID, ParameterName, ParameterValue.
Using Pivot we can generate the ParameterName/ParameterValue combinations for each report. This stored procedure is working fine in query editors(Management Studio)
But, in SSRS it is giving any results.
In Step 4 - Create a data-driven subscription,
Get the value from the database drop down, I am not getting any database columns.
I have a report that grows horizontally as it contains a matrix. In the header section of the report, I have items such as Title and time stamp in text boxes. How can I make these items align in the center if the report grows horizontally, it looks kinda odd with report title not being in the center? Any input will be appreciated.
I have a report that I created and the report was working until I added some fields to a group footer row in a table.
My table has 5 group levels. I had information displaying in the 5th level header group and detail. It was working fine. Then I added some fields to the 4th level group footer. Now it displays only the Page header, Table header, and the 4th level group footer data.
What happened to the rest of the data?
All the cells and rows I want to display have the Visibility Hidden set to false. I tried removing the objects I added (to the 4th level group footer) and it still does not work. Is this a bug or did I set something that is hiding the data.
I have a DataTable on my report, in that datatable I have a group with a header, which has a value in one of the cells. What I want to do is access the values and sum them, but only the values that show up in the report header, not the values that are in the table. My value is from a field called call_center_deduction, it is placed in a textbox with a name of "textbox65" in the header of the group called "table1_Group1".
Hopefully that makes sense,
Thanks in advance
There is a one header in the report, when I publish and hit the report in IE(internet explor) the header appears fine on first page when I go to next page this header does not appear.
But in mozilla the header is visible on every page of the report. so it is working fine in mozilla.
I donot why it is happening?
Your help is highly appreciated.
Is it possible to write SSRS 2008 reports to run on an existing SSRS 2005 server?
If yes, what do I need to do to be able to write SSRS 2008 reports on my developer PC that will run on the SQL 2005 Server (which also has SSRS 2005 installed on it)?
I installed Visual Studio 2008 beta on the development PC and it appears that it needs SSRS installed on it too. So I installed SQL 2008 SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services) and SQL 2008 Workstation Components onto the developer PC. Next I run the SQL 2008 "Reporting Services Configuration" tool. When I click on the "Web Service URL" section it hangs indefinitely and I have to force it closed.
The developer PC is Windows Vista Business.
Any suggestions on making this work, or any other information that you can think of that would allow me to use Visual Studio 2008 and the SQL 2008 "Report Designer Preview" tool to develop SSRS reports that will run on the SQL 2005 SSRS server?
We are in need of migrating SSRS subscriptions along with the reports. Could you please let me know the process ?
I really appreciate your help on this.
I got your email address from your web cast. I really enjoyed the web cast and found it to be
Our company is planning to use SSIS (VS 2005 / SQL Server 2005). I have a quick question
regarding the product. I have looked for the information on the web, but was not able to find
We are getting Source data from two of our client in the form of Excel Sheet. These Excel sheets
Are generated using reporting services. On examining the excel sheet, I found out that the name
Of the columns contain data itself, so the names are not static such as Jan 2007 Sales, Feb 2007 Sales etc etc.
And even the number of columns are not static. It depends upon the range of date selected by the user.
I wanted to know, if there is a way to import Excel sheet using Integration Services by defining the position
Of column, instead of column name and I am not sure if there is a way for me to import excel with dynamic
Number of columns.
Your help in this respect is highly appreciated!
Hi Anthony, I am glad the Web cast was helpful.
Kamal and I have both moved on to other teams in MSFT and I am a little rusty in that area, though in general dynamic numbers of columns in any format is always tricky. I am just assuming its not feasible for you to try and get the source for SSIS a little closer to home, e.g. rather than using Excel output from Reporting Services, use the same/some form of the query/data source that RS is using.
I suggest you post a question on the SSIS forum on MSDN and you should get some good answers.
SQL Server Reporting Services
If anyone could confirm...
SQL Server 2000 SP4 to multiple SQL Server 2005 Mobile Edition on PDAs. My DB on SQL2k is published with a single dynamic row filter using host_name() on my 'parent' table and also join filters from parent to child tables. The row filter uses joins to other tables elsewhere that are not published to evaluate what data is allowed through the filter.
E.g. Published parent table that contains suppliers names, etc. while child table is suppliers' products. The filter queries host_name(s) linked to suppliers in unpublished table elsewhere.
First initial sync with snapshot is correct and as I expected - PDA receives only the data from parent (and thus child tables) that matches the row filter for the host_name provided.
However - in my scenario host_name <--> suppliers may later be updated E.g. more suppliers assigned to a PDA for use or vice versa. But when I merge the mobile DB, the new data is not downloaded? Tried re-running snapshot, etc., no change.
Question: I thought the filters would remain dynamic and be applied on each sync?
I run a 'harmless' update on parent table using TSQL e.g. "update table set 'X' = 'X'" and re-sync. Now the new parent records are downloaded - but the child records are not!
Question: I wonder why if parent records are supplied, why not child records?
If I delete existing DB and sync new, I get the updated snapshot and all is well - until more data added back at server...
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Is it possible (or not) to have dynamic filters run during second or subsequent merge?
I did a quick Google for this but found nada...
If I develop a report in SSRS 64 bit, can it be ported to a 32 bit installation? Any issues?
I will do my own testing, but I was curious if anyone else had experience doing this.
I have a Stored Procedure for processing a Bill of Material.
One column on the Assembly Table is a Function Name that contains some busniess rules.
OK, now I'm doing a Proof of Concept and I'm stumped.
I will ultimately have about 100 of these things. My plan was using Dynamic SQL to go execute the function.
Note: The function just returns a bit.
So; here's what I had in mind ...
if isnull(@FnNameYN,'') <> ''
exec spinb_CheckYN @FnNameYN, @InvLineID, @FnBit = @FnBit output
CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.spinb_CheckYN
@FnBit bit output
declare @SQL varchar(8000)
set @SQL = '
if dbo.' + @FnNameYN + ' (' + convert(varchar(31),@InvLineID) + ')) = 1
set @FnBit = 1
set @FnBit = 0'
Obviously; @FnBit is not defined in @SQL so that execution will not work.
Server: Msg 137, Level 15, State 1, Line 4
Must declare the variable '@FnBit'.
Server: Msg 137, Level 15, State 1, Line 5
Must declare the variable '@FnBit'.
So; is there a way to get a value out of a Dynamic SQL piece of code and get that value INTO my OUTPUT variable?
My many thanks to anyone who can solve this riddle for me.
Sigh: For now, it looks like I'll have a huge string of "IF" statements for each business rule function, as follows:
Hopefully a better solution comes to light.
------ Vertical Build1 - Std Vanes -----------
if @FnNameYN = 'fnb_YN_B1_14'
if dbo.fnb_YN_B1_14 (convert(varchar(31),@InvLineID) ) = 1
set @FnBit = 1
set @FnBit = 0
------ Vertical Build1 - Scissor Vanes -----------
if @FnNameYN = 'fnb_YN_B1_15'
if dbo.fnb_YN_B1_15 (convert(varchar(31),@InvLineID) ) = 1
set @FnBit = 1
set @FnBit = 0
Does anyone know of a link or list that has all the parameters for the "rs:" section of the URL access parameter, except for the ones in the Microsoft books?
