I need to display data from sql server as well as access DB using model report.  I need to get data from two different sources like sql and oracle or SQL and access db. So can combine tables from these data sources into the DSV or model. I need to use it in a report   Thanks Madhavi

Using Remote Data Access with SQL Server CE 2.0

Microsoft SQL Server CE edition is the database server built by Microsoft to run on mobile devices. Besides being a standalone database for mobile applications, SQL Server CE also allows you to connect to your desktop SQL Server 2000 and perform remote data access and merge replication. In this article, you will learn how to build a .NET Compact Framework mobile application using Visual Studio .NET 2003 and how it can perform remote data access using SQL Server CE 2.0.

For more information on .NET Compact Framework, see my previous article, "Developing Pocket PC Apps with SQL Server CE."
Features of SQL Server CE 2.0

Figure 1 shows the main components in SQL Server CE and its relationship to SQL Server 2000 (on the desktop).

What are my options when I need to create a report with data from multiple sources?

Hello all,  What are my options when I want to create a report that will get records from multiple data sources based on data from a parameter? The user will enter the customer ID, I have to check that ID against 5 different data sources. Have you guys done anything similar?

Data Driven Subscription problem - sub runs slowly, has 40 errors out of 300, but report server trac

I have two report servers and a single separate SQL Server 2008 server hosting the data source database and the report server catalogues. There is a data driven subscription that runs off a sproc that returns 300 rows with email addresses for this report to be emailed to. The report itself contains around 30 subreports each with its own sproc to retrieve data. As the report is executing there are long pauses between the times when emails are actually sent out, and the subscription status will finally end with something like "Done: 300 processed of 300 total; 40 errors." I am not sure how to go about troubleshooting this problem. Details: I kicked it off at (say) 2:00 PM. Within 3 minutes in the report server execution log I saw 300 entries. There were exactly 300 people who should receive reports, so the master report should have executed 300 times and sent out 300 emails. So this looked good in the execution log. But when I checked report manager's status page for the subscription it was listed as processing 50 out of 300... Then all activity stopped, about 15 minutes some more reports started emailing out, and now I see there are around 590 rows in the execution log and maybe 97 emails sent out... Then finally I get a grand total of 846 rows in the execution log and a grand total of 260 of 300 emails sent out with 40 errors so 260+40=300 exactly. The time betw

Creating a report from multiple data sources

I am working on a report where it requires pulling data from various sources, databases and data exported into excel sheets from different databases. The objective of the report is to create a single report with all the Providers (HPs) that have been terminated. So what I have done is that I have exported all the data on a local server in the pubs database and I am using a TSQL query to return the report. The same providers may exists in the various data sources so I have to make sure that I am only returning the data once...how ever the challenge is that, other than FirstName and LastName, there are no consistent IDs that we can use in all. For example, not all of the records have the SSN, PhoneNumber, or other IDs that uniquly identify the record. I have to create a report that returns the result set and identifiys the matching records and the source system the data is from..for example the output should display as such: Termed System firstname lastname SSN homephone phonenumber Active System AMIE Jeannine Donigan NULL 3522631007 Nurse SL Linde Peggy Vanrensselaer NULL 6077321218 Sbdev Below is the approach I I have taken to return the data and I wanted to know if there is a more efficient and better way of doing this: DECLARE @matchingTerminated Table ( FirstName Varchar(255), LastName Varchar(255), Gender Varchar(255), SSNEncrypted varchar(255), Birt

Does Microsoft plan to enhance SSRS to allow access to multiple data sources?

We have the need to join multiple data sources into one table in SSRS.  At present, as I understand it, this is not a part of current delivered functionality.  We get around it by creating links withing the source database to access other databases.  The links themselves have their own set of constraints and performance issues. The other option is to use sub reports.  It would be nice to be able to define connections to disparate databases to join data from multiple data sources.  Does Microsoft have plans to deliver such functionality in an upcoming release of the SSRS product?
