Parameter or Filter?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hello together. I am straight at a Expense report tool and need a parameter for the date. I have already a Paramtere for customers. My question is how I can issue data "of - until"? e.g. 11.09.2002 - 11.09.2010 Already much tried, however if I spend the date, the wrong customer is indicated. but I want only these customers, who have a Expense in this period. Sorry for English. I started just three months ago. Reagards Patrick

How to pass a parameter from a choice filter with project IDs to a KPI web part?



I have an excel pivot table like this:

Report Filter: Project ID
proj_name     Status 
A              70
B              60
C              80

I have this workbook published onto Sharepoint server through excel services.
On the site i have a choice filter that has all the project ID's. I am able to show this table in a web part and filter the web part by passing parameter from the choice filter to the report filter in the workbook as shown above.
I added a KPI webpart that uses the "status" from the above table as its indicator value. What I want to do is that I want to pass the parameter from the choice filter on the site to this KPI web part so that it will show me the corresponding status dynamically accoring to the project chosen.
Can someone help me solve this problem?

BDC need explanation about parameter, filter and OOB WP

Hi, I'm actually working with BDC and I have to say I'm really disappointed about the documentation I found. So I have many questions and I hope some people will be able to help (at least partially) as I'm getting crazy. 1. When we have a BDC Data List WP with some filters is there a way to get ride of the filter "form" on top of the WP? 2. When we have a method with parameters in the ADF (a finder method). How are the parameters passed to the method (when we use a BDC Data List WP for example). How about programmatically? Is it necessary to associate a filter to the parameter (in the ADF)? 3. For an entity in the ADF is it possible to have more that one Finder/SpecificFinder method. If yes how the OOB WP manage it?

Passing a Text Value as DataView Filter Parameter

I have a dataview to which I would like to pass a text value for use as a filter.  My text value is on the same page within a DIV tag that I have given an ID.  When I view the page in the browser the text is actually rendered in a SPAN tag, within the DIV tag.  I have tried the ID for both the DIV and SPAN tags when setting up the parameter, and have tried using both a parameter type of Control and Form, but nothing I've tried is working. Any thoughts?  Thanks, Chanda

Parameter value filter based on user in SSRS (SharePoint Integration mode)


Hello..we have a reuirement where we have to filter the parameter value in the drop down based on the user who is accessing the report. We have form and Windows authenication enabled in the SharePoint site (some users will be from inside the network using windows and some will be accessing the site using internet using the Form Authentication).

Please let me know what would be the best way to handle this reuirement? Do we need to create a separate table  and store the User Information along with the parameter values they have access to, pass the userid from Report to db and then fileter the records using this table? OR Can we create a SharePoint List to maintain the user access information and then directly fetch the user information from the list using T-SQL to filter the records?

Please let me know your suggestion...


Datetime filter value pass to BCS stored procedure parameter


I have data coming from one of the stored procedures that has startdate and enddate as parameters.I have created a business data webpart tht accepts this ECT.When I give the start date and end date in this format----> 2010-02-02 00:00:00Z,I can able to get the data from the database.

               As this is not a feasible approach,I have used a two datetime filters that has calendar control attached to it,so that user can use this to pick the start date and end date.Now,my issue here is when I choose the startdate and enddate,ECT is not accepting the format of the date that these filters are passing.I have changed the filter descriptor LOBDateTimeMode to "Local" in the external content type,but still I am receiving the same error.Does any one has any solution for this??

Specifying a parameter in a matrix filter - the data type automatically changes to 'text' when it



When specifying a parameter in a matrix filter (Report Builder 2) the data type automatically reverts to 'text' when it should be 'date/time'.  Removing the parameter and re-adding it displays it correctly as 'date/time' but this isn't saved when clicking 'OK'. 

The problem only becomes apparent when the parameter is set to 'allow multiple values'.  Once this is selected the report throws up the following error:

"An error has occured during report processing. The processing of FilterExpression for the tablix 'Tablix1' cannot be performed.  Cannot compare data types System.String and System.Object[]. Please check the data type returned by the FilterExpression."

Is this a bug with Report Builder 2 or is there something wrong with my report model?

Any help/guidance greatly appreciated.

Using jQuery to Filter Table Rows

The project is using the .net GridView control, so I had limited control over the output HTML code. Still, I think this code can work for most tables. One thing to notice: you should use the class "filterable" on your table or on one of its parents for the code to work.
First, we need a text box:

GridView Multiple Filter AJAX Control

This AJAX control enables the user to filter data within any column inside a GridView. The user can add multiple filters and can delete existing ones too.

Use a column as parameter for a sds in another column; gridview


Hola, I have a gridview which is bound to a sds which returns 7 columns and I added two columns from the GUI.  What I want is to fill up the 9th column with DDLs and these  DDLS will get their data from a different sds which is using a stored procedure with a single parameter.  I created the 9th row, used template field, made the sds for 9th row, the stored_procedure, threw a DDL in Item template and all  I need now is to pass a parameter in the first column to the sds in the 9th column.  I can code this but i'm getting tired of aspx.cs :) and would like to do it from the GUI.

Where to Filter the companies returned by the EF?



I am just starting with dynamic data. I have an enttity framework called UsersModel.edmx.

It returns a list of all companies in the tblCompany table. This list is really big.

I need to filter the list returned to all user controls on the client so that it only returns the company that have a CompanyTypeId= 2 or CompanyTypeId= 3 and company name != "".

1 - Is it possible to filter the company list returned on the server so that I can filter only once for all the controls that use that on the client?

My ideas was to do something like this using linq and lambda but I am not sure how:

return tblCompanys.Where(c => c.CompanyTypeId == 2 || c.CompanyTypeId == 3 && ).Where(c=>c.CompanyName != "").OrderBy(c => c.CompanyName).Distinct().OrderBy(c=>c.CompanyName);

2 - I have created a partial class and a metadata class and added the DisplayColumn attribute to use the company name and sort by company name ascending.

Could I use the code to filter the returned companies in this? where?

namespace MarsMedicalModel
    [DisplayColumn("CompanyName", "CompanyName")]
    public partial class t

Sort by gridview SortExpression parameter via Stored Procedure


I have a gridview that calls data via a stored procedure.  I am unable to enable the gridview columns to be sortable. I need to set the parameter in the Stored Procedure, can someone help me with this?

Here is my gridview:

<asp:GridView ID="AllUsersGrid" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="UserName"
                        GridLines="Vertical" Width="900px" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" AllowSorting="True"
                        SelectedRowStyle-Height="30px" CellPadding="4" BackColor="White">
                            <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Full Name" SortExpression="lastname">
                                    <asp:Label ID="DisplayName" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("firstname").ToString() & " " & Eval("lastname").ToString() %>' />

Filter by Computed Column



After looking for a driver to open legacy dbf drivers to connect, the next level trouble a have is this one:

first, i can retrieve the data but when trying to filter by a parameter (somesc columns) i get an error.

The error says about the database can't determine some blah blah!

The error is a columm tha is formated (  1234  ) about  8 space, fixed. The values in the query appears like that. I resolve this by Trimming Ltrim(ColumnName) and i get this (1234).

Now in SqlExpress, how can i filter by the new Trimmed Expression? (This is a primary key that the DBF use)


SELECT column1, column2, column3


SELECT Ltrim(column1) as NewExp, column2, column3
Where NewExpre = @NewExpres                  -Error-


type object parameter



I have a problem I can't figure out.

I've been trying to add a listbox with multi select enabled as a parameter to my select statement in sqldatasource.

So i created a function like this :

string strItemTypes = "";
foreach (ListItem li in lbItemType.Items)
   if (li.Selected)
      strItemTypes += "," + li.Value;
strItemTypes = strItemTypes.Substring(1);

which gives me the selected items like this for example : "1,2,3"...
Then I've been trying to add it to my sql select statement :

SELECT tblOfficesItems.idOfficesItems, tblStockItems.Name, tblStockItems.Description, tblStockItemTypes.TypeItem, tblStockItems.Notes FROM tblOfficesItems INNER JOIN tblStockItems ON tblOfficesItems.fkItem = tblStockItems.idItem INNER JOIN tblStockItemTypes ON tblStockItems.fkTypeItem = tblStockItemTypes.idTypeItem WHERE tblStockItems.fkTypeItem IN ( @fkTypeItems )

using a hiddenfield with a controlparameter of type=object
but it just don't seem to work, seems like the data just won't bind or something and I don't get any errors so I'm confused!!

then i tried this :

SELECT tblOfficesItems.idOfficesItems, tblStockItems.Name

LDAP nested groups filter


Hi all,

In my organization we use nested groups.

For a particular usage, we have a group (let's assume that the group name "kuku"), and the names of all the nested groups under it contains "kuku" as well.

We may assume that no other group in the LDAP has "kuku" in the name.

I need to create a filter which will return all the users which belong to one of the "kuku"s group.

Obviously, using this filter will bring only the head kukus

(&(&(objectclass=user)(objectclass=person))(memberOf=CN=kuku,cn=.rest of the group DN.))

How can I use wild card to fetch all users which belong to any kuku?

For example: (&(&(objectclass=user)(objectclass=person))(memberOf=CN=.*kuku.*))
