Report Model Wizard Error - Data Is Null

Oct 29, 2007

I am attempting to create a new report model. When I try to update statistics from the data source view I get the following error - Data is Null. This method or property cannot be called on Null values. I tried changing the generation rules so that attributes are only created for non-empty columns but that didn't help. Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks.

Can't Connect To Remote Report Server Model From Report Wizard

Mar 6, 2008


I have created and deployed a data source (which uses "Credentials supplied by the user running the report") and a model which uses this data source.
Also I have built a report using Report Builder and all works well.

Now I wish to use Visual Studio to build a report, so I'm trying to create a data source from my computer which the report should use and I want it to use the model on the remote server. In the Report Wizard I am using "Report Server Model" and the following connection string:


IHowever I can't make the credentials to work. I've tried them all with no luck. What username/password must I use? Because so far nothing of what I have tried works.

Any help is highly appretiated.

Kind Regards,

Error When Trying To Use The Report Wizard

Jul 29, 2007

I created a template with a Logo, Header data and Footer data. I then copied the report to the template directory.
and renamed it report.rdl (replacing the default report that was there).

C:Program FilesMicrosoft Visual Studio 8Common7IDEPrivateAssembliesProjectItemsReportProject

When I create a report using the report wizard I get the following error:
Deserialization failed: The report definition element 'Report' contains more than one child element of type 'Language' at line 362, position 4. Line 362, position 4.

Edit code

The report works just fine when I created it and did a preview.

I was hoping to create a report template that I could substitute for the default report (report.rdl) so that when using the wizard the report would be created with logos, headers and footers already there.

If I put the original report back the report wizard works just fine.

Am I doing something wrong or is this not allowed.

Error - Report Model For Oracle 10g

Jan 10, 2008

I've searched forums and found responses from 2006 forward, but none that I'd find satisfactory, so if anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.

I'm using SQL have SQL Server Reporting Services 2005 SP2. I've successfully used SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio to create reports and charts from data stored in an Oracle 10g database.

I have a distributed team and while I'm creating the official reports, I need them to be able to utilize the Report Builder to create their own reports for day to day management of their own activities.

I created a Data Source and a Data Source View successfully. When I tried to utilize the Report Model Wizard to create a report model the builder can use, I get an error.

I've read that this was ''fixed" with SP2. I've also read that there are work-arounds (which I don't necessarily understand). However, I've read plenty of MS documentation that says that this should work.

Can anyone provide any clarity around where my problem lies and how I might mitigate?

Thanks in advance,

Report Model - No Build Because Of Error In Role

May 8, 2007


I removed a role in the datasourceview of a datamodel. Later I removed the role in the reportmodel. There are always two roles for one relation. Now I only have one role left and I can't delete it anymore.

This is the error I get when building the project.

Error 2 The RelatedRoleID property of the Role 'invoicelineid' refers to the Role 'Gd1b03590-f98b-46aa-945d-c90ccd5d6028', which is not in the same SemanticModel as the Role 'invoicelineid'. Max generiek.smdl 0 0

When I try to remove the role I'll get an error : object reference not set to an instance of an object.

If I look at the properties of the role I see that when I open 'related role' there is nothing in it, except an ID: Gd1b03590-f98b-46aa-945d-c90ccd5d6028 and as name: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

I also tried to remove the whole entity but that resulted in the same error. It's not an option for mee to remove the whole model and autogenerate it again, but there is too much work in it already.

If I try to remove this thing in the xml itself it gives other errors and the model won't load anymore.

I hope somebody has a solution for this.

thanks in advance,

Report Model Is Generating Without Data

Feb 22, 2007

I have been generating report models for users to use with Report Builder and there is no data when they select the model. I noticed that the tables I chose did not have a primary key and when I chose a different table, with a primary key, and generated a model from it, then there was data for the user to use in Report Builder.

Is there a documented work around or will I need to set a primary key on each table?

Data Filter With Report Model

Sep 24, 2007

I am trying to applying an data filter that will filter out user based on userid

Three tables:

tblPerson (fact table): contains over 1 million records with about 20 fields. One of the fields is called BureauID (int). BureauID indicates what Bureau the person works in for an given record.

tblBureau (attribute table) which has a FK relationship to tblPerson) contains the following fields:

BureauID int - this is the linked field to tbl person
Bureau Code varchar
Bureau ShortName varchar

The reason we use tblBureau as in attribute table instead of place the bureau code and short name directly into table Person is so that we index tbl person quickly with "ints".

tblDataAccess, which has two fields loginID with bureau Code. The bureau code in this table tells me what bureau that userid has access to.

How do i get the report model to filter based on this userid????. I know i have to add some data filters but i am not sure where.

I put an filter on DataAccess so that login = getuserid().

But what do i do to table person or table bureau, so that a person can only see the people in there bureau.

Thanks for you help

Report Model Data Cache

Feb 1, 2008


I created a report model using reporting services, deployed the model locally and then built a report based on that model. The report works fine, but any data updates don't show up, seems like data is cached. I bounced reporting services, cleared cached tables in ReportServerTempDB but of no use. Has anybody faced this problem? How can I get updated data for reports built through a report model. Any help is appreciated.

Method Not Supported Error When Trying To Create New Report Model

Jan 21, 2008

I'm trying to create a few report models in Visual Studio to demonstrate the Report Builder tool and I'm encountering an issue when I try to generate a Report Model.

I get the error message "Specified Method Is Not Supported" when I click Finish on the Report Model wizard. The error detail is:

Specified method is not supported. (Microsoft Visual Studio)
Program Location:
at Microsoft.ReportingServices.ModelDesigner.Wizards.ChooseSemanticModelName.CreateSqlDsvStatisticsProvider(IDbConnection connection)
at Microsoft.ReportingServices.ModelDesigner.Wizards.ChooseSemanticModelName.BuildModel()

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new Report Model project in Visual Studio 2005 against SQL Server 2005
2. Create a new data source. The data source was tested and works correctly
3. Create a new data source view. The data source view was also tested (clicked on Explore Data) and I was able to look at the data in the view
4. Right-click on Report Models and select "Add New Report Model"
5. Click next at the welcome screen
6. Select the data source view created in #3
7. Leave the selected options for report model generation rules for creating the data source view
(Create Entities for all Tables, Create Count Aggregates, Create Attributes, Create Attributes for auto-increment columns, Create date variations, Create numeric aggregates, Create date aggregates, Create roles were all selected)
8. Click next
9. Select Update Model Statistics Before Generating (default option)
10. Click next
11. Click Run

Once I click run it processes for approx 3 seconds and then returns the error above.

If anyone could help me I'd appreciate it. Microsoft hasn't published any details on the namespace and I'm not sure why I'd be getting the error I am.

Thanks in advane,

Report Builder - Data Model Filter

Oct 18, 2007

I have built a data model in visual studio that I am using with report builder in reporting services. The data model is using data from a view in SQL Server 2005. I am trying to apply a filter to the data model to restrict the data available in report builder. I know that I could change the code for the view and filter that data that way, but I would rather creates two models each one producing differnt sets of filtered data. I have tried adding a filter to the data model, but it does not seem to work. Do anyone have any suggestions?

Report Builder - Data Model(Security)

Feb 8, 2007

Hi all

I have created security roles that restrict access to a certain Dimension
and a member therein.

The security works fine when the users finened in it runs a report:
The data is accordingley ristricted.

The problem is when those same users run Report Builder and create a report,
those members are no longer restricted and they have acces to absoluteley
all data from the cubes.

Is there some way that I can force the Data Model to follow the cube's security roles?

Any help is much appreciated...

Gerhard Davids

I have found that it uses the wrong user when opening report builder.
For some reason it uses my windows account instead of the one I used to log onto
report manager. This is way the security isnt working

Any thoughts what may be causing this?

XML Data Source To Report Model (Dec CTP SQL 2005 SP2)

Jan 29, 2007


I've used the Dec CTP of SQL 2005 SP2 to create a Report Server Project.

In this project, I can create an XML datasource and successfully use that datasource in a report published on Sharepoint using the new Sharepoint AddIn.

I've also used Dec CTP of SQL 2005 SP2 to create a Report Model Project.

In this project I can create SQL Data Sources, DataSource Views andReport Models which I deploy to sharepoint and create a report builder based report from.

What I can't do is create an XML based datasource in a Report Model Project. Also, if I create one solution containing both types of project, the Report Model Project Data Source Wizard suggests I can create a data source based on an existing data source in my solution. What I find is that my XML data source from the Report Server Project is not listed. In fact even if I create a SQL data source in the Report Server Project that isn't available either.

Please let me know what should work now/RTM.

Use Report Server Project To Connect To Report Model Project Data Source View?

Jan 17, 2008

I've created a Report Model Project that can be used by Report Builder to generate ad-hoc reports. I'm trying to create a connection string in my Report Server Project that points to the Report Model Project data source view.

All I can do is create a regular datasource, which bypasses the metadata contained in the Data Source View.

Basically I want my Report Server Project and my Report Builder reports to leverage the same metadata. Is this possible? If so how do I get the connection string?

Error Creating Report Model Based Upon Oracle Database

Report Model Using A Non-SQL Server, Non-SSAS Data Source

Dec 20, 2006

I've been doing research on the web trying to find if it's possible to create a Report Model that is based on a Data Source that is NOT SQL Server and NOT SSAS.

Specifically I'd like to be able to build a Report Model on a Web Server (or multiple web services).

Does anyone have any information relating to this? Based on my research it looks like there's a few interfaces that need to be implemented (such as ISemanticModelGenerator, etc.).

I did find a post relating to using ODBC data sources for a Report Model and the recommended solution was Linked Tables in SQL Server or UDM in SSAS. Both cases don't look feasible for a Web Service-based Data Source.

Report Builder - Data Model Based On User Id

Oct 18, 2007

I am trying to develop a data model that will filter data based on the user logged in. SUSER_SNAME()
I have a list of User Id's in a look up table, a where clause in a view that filters the data based on who is logged in. This works fine and the data even seems to be filtered when I explore the data in the Data Source View. How ever when I publish the data model to the reporting services site and use report builder the user logged in is no longer recognized. All I am really trying to do is set up report builder so that users can generate reports and only have access to thier data via a customer number. I just can't allow users to see other users data and I don't want to set up a different datasource view for each user. Does any one have any experience with this?

Report Model/Datasource View, Primary Data Source Problem

May 23, 2007

I have a datasource view DSV1. It points to a datasource DS1 that is considered the "primary".

I have created a Report Model that uses DSV1 (and thus uses DS1)

I created a new datasource, DS2 that I would like to use instead of DS1. (I can't just modify DS1 because if I modify it, it will overwrite it when we go to our Production environment and break that datasource)

So, I can go into DSV1 and change all the references from DS1 to DS2.

But that's where the problem lies.

When I try to build, I get the following error:

"The Table property of the Entity "E1" refers to the Table "dbo_View", which is not in the primary data source."

Somehow, the entity is tied to the "primary" datasource. When I change it back to DS1, everything works fine. Any thoughts? What can I do?

How To Refresh A Data Source View And Autogenerate/Re-Deploy The Corresponding Report Model

Hi everyone!,

Our team is new to SSRS and we are trying to figure out how to refresh the data source view, autogenerate the corressponding report model and Re-Deploy the Report Model (rewrite existing Report Model) on the server on a periodoc basis or trigger the whole action whenever there is a change in the database on some specific tables.

We prefer to do this action through a Agent job ( a diff approach is also welcome).

Are there any stored procs out there?

Error When Generating Data Source Model

Mar 20, 2008

When I attempt to generate a datasource model I get the following error messages:
More than one item in the Entity 'Customer' has the
name 'Customer Merge Custs'. Item names must be unique
among immediate siblings. (DuplicateItemName)

More than one Field in the Entity 'Customer' has the
name 'Customer Merge Custs'. Field names must be
unique within an Entity. (DuplicateFieldName)

More than one item in the Entity 'Pricing Service Layout
Detail' has the name 'Pricing Service
Extensions'. Item names must be unique among immediate
siblings. (DuplicateItemName)

More than one Field in the Entity 'Pricing Service Layout
Detail' has the name 'Pricing Service
Extensions'. Field names must be unique within an Entity.

Examining any of the above tables in SQL Server Management Studio does not reveal any duplicate column names. In fact, 'Customer_Merge_Custs' does not appear to be a column in 'Customer' nor does 'Pricing_Service_Extensions' appear in 'Pricing_Service_Layout_Detail'.

As an experiment, deleting the table 'Pricing_Service_Extensions' and regenerating did make the two associated messages go away.
