Pound Sign Problem

Sep 17, 2004


I have come across a bit of problem with my Web Form. I have standard textbox which inserts a value into a SQL 2000 database. However if I put a pound sign anywhere inside the text box and do the insert it disappears when I try and reshow the value.

I have checked the database field to see if it has been inputted but its no where to be seen.

So what has happened to my pound sign? any ideas?

I am using VS.Net 2003.

Thanks in advance

Reporting Services 2005 - CSV - ASCII - £(Pound Symbol)

Oct 2, 2006


We are having problems getting Reporting Services 2005 to export to an ASCII CSV file and correctly produce a (GBP sign).

I have changed my report server .config file to read:

<Extension Name="CSV1" Type="Microsoft.ReportingServices.Rendering.CsvRenderer.CsvReport,Microsoft.ReportingServices.CsvRendering">
<Name Language="en-UK">CSV - UTF-8</Name>
<Extension Name="CSV2" Type="Microsoft.ReportingServices.Rendering.CsvRenderer.CsvReport,Microsoft.ReportingServices.CsvRendering">
<Name Language="en-UK">CSV - UTF-7</Name>
<Extension Name="CSV3" Type="Microsoft.ReportingServices.Rendering.CsvRenderer.CsvReport,Microsoft.ReportingServices.CsvRendering">
<Name Language="en-UK">CSV - ASCII</Name>

And so far so good I get the three options to export to,

If I Export using the ASCII Rendering my pound signs come out as question marks (?) and subsequently loads into Excel as a general data type and is not sum-able.

If I Export using UTF-8 Rendering my pound signs come out as a weird character followed by a pound sign, again opened in excel loads as a General data type and is not summable.

If I export using UNICODE rendering, by file sizes are doublesd as you would expect, and then when you open in excel it is all bunched up in column 1, both un-acceptable.

Interestingly enough If I take the UTF-8 file I have and convert it to ASCII using Ultraedit, notepad or wordpad, everything works fine, the is correctly encoded, Excel loads it OK and it is summable, result, but I can not use get my end users to perform this "kludge" for an export.

Any help would be appreciated

Formatting Numbers In A Mixed Column (numbers In Some Cells Strings In Other Cells) In Excel As Numbers

Feb 1, 2007

I have a report with a column which contains either a string such as "N/A" or a number such as 12. A user exports the report to Excel. In Excel the numbers are formatted as text.

I already tried to set the value as CDbl which returns error for the cells containing a string.

The requirement is to export the column to Excel with the numbers formatted as numbers and the strings such as "N/A' in the same column as string.

Any suggestions?

I Need To Update A Table With Random Numbers Or Sequential Numbers

Mar 11, 2008

I have a table with a column ID of ContentID. The ID in that column is all NULLs. I need a way to change those nulls to a number. It does not matter what type of number it is as long as they are different. Can someone point me somewhere with a piece of T-SQL that I could use to do that. There are over 24000 rows so cursor change will not be very efficient.

Thanks for any help

Dataflow To Excel - Convert Numbers Stored As Text To Numbers Excel Cell Error

Mar 27, 2007

I'm trying to write data to excel from an ssis component to a excel destination.

Even thought I'm writing numerics, every cell gets this error with a green tag:

Convert numbers stored as text to numbers

Excel Cells were all pre-formated to accounting 2 decimal, and if i manually type the exact data Im sending it formats just fine.

I'm hearing this a common problem -

On another project I was able to find a workaround for the web based version of excel, by writing this to the top of the file:

<style>.text { mso-number-format:@; } </style>

is there anything I can pre-set in excel (cells are already formated) or write to my file so that numerics are seen as numerics and not text.

Maybe some setting in my write drivers - using sql servers excel destination.

So close.. Thanks for any help or information.

Row Numbers Etc.

Sep 24, 2007

I have a sales report that includes dollar amount, tonnage, and profit margin among other things. They are currently sorted by tonnage sold from highest to lowest. I'd like to be able to place a number in a column counting 1 up for tonnage ranking. I'd also like to get a number ranking for sales amount ranking along with profit margin ranking. The most tonnage sold might not have been the biggest sale nor had the highest profit margin.

Does this sound like something that can be done within SSRS?

I should ad I'm runing MDX queries against a cube so I can't use T-SQL for ranking.

Calculating ID Numbers

Mar 28, 2008

 I needed to come up with an algorithm to create unique user- friendly account numbers such as AC0000000001, AC0000000002, etc...Where they increment by 1. I created a SQL function that retrieves the previous number generated, adds 1 to it, inserts the new value into  the table, then returns the new value. I started thinking, what if the function is ran at the same time? What if function # 1 creates the new number, and function #2 creates a new number as well before function #1 inserts it? Is this a possible scenario? If so, how do I lock the process until the function completes to prevent this?  Thanks for any help you provide.

Random Numbers.

Jun 22, 2001

I am trying to get random numbers to have a unique value for different processes, then I can identify each process. What happens is that I use rand() function without seed, so I got my random numbers, but after shutting down SQLServer and try to get again another random number after booting up, the same series of random numbers is given again and again. So if anyone knows how I can get unique values,even though reseting the server, and using random function or any other method which automatically provides unique values,I'll really appreciate it if you let me know it.

This is the function: select rand()

Formatting Numbers

Jan 18, 2005

I am using a MS Access ADP connected to SQL Server Data

In a view I have the following formula:

dbo.tblQuoteItem.Cost + dbo.tblQuoteItem.Markup * dbo.tblQuoteItem.Cost * .01

this calculates cost + markup

I cannot get it to format in Currency


Cost is $1.75
Markup is 2.00 (2%)
Total shows - 1.785000

I want $1.78

Also - I am using this formula to calculate the Quoted price for the Qty Entered

dbo.tblQuoteItem.Qty * dbo.tblQuoteItem.Cost + dbo.tblQuoteItem.Markup * dbo.tblQuoteItem.Cost * .01

Using a Qty of 2 for above, I get 3.535000

I want $3.53

Any help is appreciated - AB
