How to indent text within a formula?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hi there - I'm doing a report that includes blocks of text.  The block of text that is inserted into the report is determined using a formula.I want to indent the first line (similar to writing a letter) of the text.  Can anyone let me know how to program this into the formula.  I'm looking for something similar to  the Bold (<b>), underline (<u>), or hard return (<BR>) codes that are used with HTML format.Any help is appreciated.Thanks

Calculated Columns - How to Use " as a text in a formula


Hi there,

In Excel you can use """ to add " to a formula, but this does not seem to work in SharePoint Calculated Columns.

What I'm want to achieve is an output of "Column1"; and I've tried using the formulas ="[Column1]", ="""[Column1]""", ="&[Column1]&", ="""&[Column1]&"""

I'd be very grateful if anyone can tell be a way of incorporating quotes as text into a SharePoint calculated formula.

Thank you, in anticipation.

SSRS text box action - Go to URL doesn't work with left indent



May I know anyone manage to get 'Go to URL' work, together with values on left indent properties?

For example, I have following report interface, with hyperlink & left indent on each items:-





Everything works fine in BIDS - but the hyperlink not working properly when deployed and view in Reports Manager! According to http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlreportingservices/thread/b9d0cbf1-b278-40e8-8da4-6871d49661d9 post, both 'Go to URL' and left indent doesn't work at the same time. The hyperlinks work fine again when after removed the left indent.

Does this mean I can only use either 'Go to URL' or 'left indent', but NOT BOTH at the same time! Any workaround?

Many thanks :-)

Built-in Functions - Text and Image Functions in SQL Server

Text and image functions operate on TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. These data types are deprecated with SQL Server 2005 and should be replaced by VARCHAR(MAX), NVARCHAR(MAX) and VARBINARY(MAX) when possible. Alternatively you can also consider storing large string values using XML data type. Text and image functions are nondeterministic.

Future versions of SQL Server will not support TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. Columns with TEXT / NTEXT data type do not support commonly used string functions such as LEN, LEFT, RIGHT, etc. Furthermore, due to the large size of TEXT data you''re likely to see performance issues if you store such data in the database. However, at times you can''t help but use the TEXT / NTEXT / IMAGE data types (for example when supporting 3rd party databases when you cannot change the schema) - this is when text and image functions come in handy.

Hi, I'm searching now for hours but couldn't find it.Cry

In my menu i have several buttons which (by a <a href..) should go the a part of an article that is in the same form.

Menu button : What is a database should go to the page default.aspx and in there is an article published.
A part of this article is having a piece of text about "what is a database"

Menu button: how to make a query should go to this same article in the same page but then to the part that is have the piece about the query. The next could be an example of what i'm doing:

    <li><a href="default.aspx ?????>what is a database</a></li>
    <li><a href="default.aspx ?????>what is a query</a></li>

Where my question marks are, there should be a connection to that particular piece of text.
In each article part there is an ID="text1" and the second part id="text2"

How shoudl i do that, Should i use a question mark.
Please give me some guidance how to structure the <li> statement or a pointer where I can read about it.


text editor


 I format lines in a .aspx file (source view) the way I can use them, and if I switch to design view or view in browser or debug, the many lines get reformatted to flow all onto one line.

I can't seem to find the correct setting to keep this from happening.

Any suggestions?


Unique text value in databse column


Hi Everyone!

I know this is probably a very basic question but how do I keep a column's text values unique in SQL server (ie for a unique username)?  The column is not an integer it's varchar(50), and it's not the primary key but I could make it the primary key if recommended.

The front end could handle it;  where the user would enter text, it's validated, then a query is done to see if that username is available.  If so, then user can decide to choose it and an insert is done, if not they pick a new username and process repeats.  With this approach, the responsibility of keeping the value unique solely rests on the front end, nothing on the database side.

Is this the correct way to handle this? 

Thank you!
