PerformancePoint Dashboard Problems

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I am having a few problems with a dashboard I am trying to create. The first problem, is that I have an analytical chart, that was working correctly before. It is just a line graph with numbers on the y axis, and date on the x axis. When I created the chart, the database only had entries for four days, all of which showed up.  Today, I updated the table to where it has 15 days of data now, but only the original four entries still show up. Secondly, I have created a time intelligence filter. The filter itself works fine when I preview it. The formulas are correct, and my hierarchy is correct. The problem comes when I try to create the connection between the filter and the chart.  On my available fields under the filter, I have, "display condition, time, display value, member unique name, formula, and the name of my data source. I obviously want the time filter to change the time field on my chart.  I dragged "formula" down to the chart, selected Time PK Date as the "connect to," and set formula to the source Value. I believe those should be the correct settings, yes? well when I deploy the dashboard to my sharepoint site, I get this error: "Error running data source query. Contact the administrator for more details."   Since I am the administrator, I checked out the event logs, and was given these errors: --------------

PerformancePoint Dashboard using Excel Services - How to export or print?

I have a PPS dashboard in 2010 that has an Excel services report with a nice graph and grid.  I do not see an "export to Excel" toolbar or a print function.  In the old 2007 Sharepoint, the Excel services report had a menu which allowed the user to export to excel (copy / paste) or OPEN in Excel.  (actually open the pivot table) How do I expose that menu bar in 2010?  Thanks.

PerformancePoint Dashboard Deployment


I'm new to working with PerformancePoint 2010 and I'm trying to figure out all the functionality.


I would like to create a dashboard and then deploy it via a WSP or some other automated way. Is this possible?

I plan on creating the dashboard in development and then manually add the generated .ASPX files to my WSP solution. This seems like a round about way that I haven't proven to work yet. 


Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.

Deploy performancepoint dashboard via WSP using VS2010



I've created a solution containing various sharepoint customisations for a site that I am working on.  This is all working well as the customisations are packaged up as a feature and added to the site using feature activiation.

However, I am now onto the final piece of the site - a performancepoint dashboard that I have created using the dashboard designer.  I want to store the objects from the dashboard within the visual studio project so that when the feature is activated, the dashboard is created within the site.

I cannot work out how to retrieve the actual performance point objects in order to incorporate them into the project, or how to re-create them in the site when the feature is activated.  Can anyone point me towards some examples or help - I have not been able to find anything useful so far.

Many thanks,

PerformancePoint Services - Dashboard Designer won't launch from PerformancePoint Content library


There are a couple of ways to launch Dashboard Designer for PerformancePoint Services. One of them is to go to a BI Center site, than to the PerformancePoint Content library and click New Item on the Items tab of the ribbon. If you then select one of the items listed, eg a PerformancePoint KPI, Dashboard Designer should launch.

Now in my case, it doesn't. I get a popup titled 'Dashboard Designer Redirect' telling me 'Loading Dashboard Designer...', but when the popup disappears after a few seconds, nothing happens. In the SharePoint logs, I can find a few errors, listed below. What intrigues me here is that the problem seems to be caused by a resource file ppsma.Client.en-US.en-US.resx that cannot be found. Note the double en-US.enUS in there. I do see the resource file in the listed location, but it has en-US in it's filename only once.

This is not a serious problem as I do have other options to launch Dashboard Designer, like going to the Data Connections library, then select New Document - PerformancePoint Data Source, which will launch DD. Or go to the BI Center main page and select the 'Start using PerformancePoint Services' link and start DD from there, which also works. But I am just curious whether there is something wrong with my installation, or this is a bug I should report on MS Connect.

Top .NET Performance Problems and how to avoid them

Every time I work with one of our .NET customers to help them with managing their application performance I come across the same problems as seen with other clients before: lots of ADO.NET queries, many hidden exceptions in core or 3rd party .NET libraries, slow 3rd party components, inefficient custom code

Visual Studio 2008 Memory problems

Problems with Forms Authentication in DD 4 site


Hello,  I am seeing a strange problem with Forms Authentication in my DD site.   A user logs into and can view/edit/delete data all day, but when they execute a Custom Filter against data (for example , a control DynamicData/Filters/CustomerLastNameSearch.ascx ) then the site auth fails, and redirects to the log in screen.

in web.config I have

     <authentication mode="Forms">
            <forms name=".Star" loginUrl="~/Login.aspx" protection="All" defaultUrl="~/Default.aspx" path="/" timeout="43200" cookieless="UseCookies" />     

Offhand, I am thinking two things : that DynamicData/Filters path requires some special handling for some reason, or the control extension ascx is causing auth to get confused.   Has anyone else experienced this or have any suggestions?  Thanks!

Problems posting to a package


Hey Y'all

I'm currently creating a program that accesses a mysql package to add data to a few tables.  I'm currently getting an error that says  "

ORA-01403: no data found
ORA-06512: at "JESSE.PKG_WORKPLAN", line 42
ORA-06512: at "JESSE.PKG_WORKPLAN", line 177
ORA-06512: at line 1


These lines are


and 177:add_team_members(V_PROJECT_ID, V_START_DATE, v_FISC_YEAR, V_MEMBERS ,V_NUM_MEMBERS,'add');

Checking these variables in my asp.net page they are all receiving parameters.

Is there a  way to see what the database is actually receiving from the asp.net page?

Or is there another thing to be looking at?


URL Routing and Existing HttpHandler problems


Hello everyone,

I have a problem:

I am currently using 2 features: 

1. HttpHandler

Registering the path="res.aspx" verb="*"

2. URL Routing:

Registering with this pattern: "Company/Edit/{*companyId}","~/CompanyEdit.aspx"

In my CompanyEdit.aspx page, I used httphandler res.aspx to generate some images at client.

  • res.aspx?img=1
  • res.aspx?img=3

Now the problem is here, the page is load success with companyId = "12345", but when the images was loaded at client, it loaded the CompanyEdit.aspx again and show error with wrong id.  

I have debug and find the problem that because when image's urls were generated to client with url=res.aspx?img=1, url=res.aspx?img=3, the asp.net will understand that they are Company/Edit/res.aspx?img=1, Company/Edit/res.aspx?img=3 when it maps with URL Routing pattern.

=> So the CompanyEdit.aspx was load again with wrong id (id now is "res.aspx"). 

So, do you have any ideas to solve this problem, or other design.

Thanks, and best regard

ASP.NET 4 precompilation problems



We used ASP.NET precompilation (first manually, then with VS2008 WDP) with .NET 3.5 almost (see below) successfully.

After we moved to 4.0, the precompilation no longer works properly. The precompilation process itself succeeds, and the website works, but it consumes about twice the CPU it does without any precompilation. We use non-updatable precompilation (so webpages get compiled completely).

Our internal profiling tells us that most of the threads spend their time within variations of the following stack:


  System.Web.dll!System.Web.Compilation.BuildManager.GetVPathBuildResultFromCacheInternal(System.Web.VirtualPath virtualPath, bool ensureIsUpToDate) + 0xa2 bytes 
  System.Web.dll!System.Web.Compilation.BuildManager.GetVPathBuildResultInternal(System.Web.VirtualPath virtualPath, bool noBuild, bool allowCrossApp, bool allowBuildInPrecompile, bool throwIfNotFound, bool ensureIsUpToDate) + 0x5b bytes 
  System.Web.dll!System.Web.Compilation.BuildManager.GetVPathBuildResultWithNoAssert(System.Web.HttpContext context, System.Web.VirtualPath virtualPath, bool noBuild, bool allowCrossApp, bool allowBuildInPrecompile, bool throwIfNotFound, bool ensureIsUpToDate) + 0xcb bytes 

Problems converting VS 2003 project to VS 2008



I'm having problems converting a VS 2003 project to VS 2008 (tried 2005 as well, same problem). There are several problems;
a) I don't have VS 2003 installed.
b) The project is a web service, however I'm not sure what type of VS project it was created as.
c) The general knowledge about the project setup is..slim.

I get a error message using the conversion wizard, however, I'm not familiar with the tool and I cannot quite find any good information on Google for it, so I am left with a error message I do not understand.

Conversion Issues - myProject.csproj:
Unable to open the Web site 'C:\local\path\to\project\myProject.csproj'. The Web site 'C:\local\path\to\project\myProject.csproj' does not exist.

The web service is not intended to run on the dev machine, it is copied to a test or a prod server. However, I do not know how this was done previously. I'm thinking that in order to convert, it has to access the server on which it should run (which is set somehow in a config maybe). But that doesn't actually make any sence..

If anyone could shed light on this, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you.
