Building SSRS reports based on SharePoint 2007 lists

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi,   I'm building a SSRS report, and I want to get data out of a SharePoint 2007 list. The difficulty I'm facing is the following: The SharePoint server is behind an ISA Server, and is configured for Form-Based Authentication. Is there a way to keep the FBA and retreve information out of a SharePoint list with reporting services?   Kind Regards,  AVermaas

SSRS Reports Not updating in Sharepoint 2007


Hello All,

I created some reports in SSRS 2008, The reports data source is a live transactional data source. The reports are to auto refresh every minute displaying any new info that  was put on to the system in the last minute. The auto refresh property on each report is set to 60 sec. to trigger the refreshing of the reports.

The problem: when i run the reports in the report manager the every thing works fine, the report runs, refreshes, and the figures are updated.

I am now displaying these reports in Sharepoint 2007 via the "report viewer" facilitated by the RSWebPart that i installed on the Sharepoint instance. 

The reports are displayed fine in the viewer, but my problem is that it does not auto refresh with the updated info.


I figure it is a caching issue but how to get around? HELP!

SSRS 2008 R2 and sharepoint 2007 report builder problems


I upgraded our enterprise sql server 2008 to sql server 2008 r2 last weekend.  Along with this i installed the report builder 3.0 on the servers as well and the updated ssrs add in for sharepoint.  The upgrade went fine, no errors that i could find.  The problem is now when i go to a library that has the report builder content type enabled and click report builder report under new it does not load report builder 3.0.

I updated the custom report builder url in central administration from /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_2_0_0_0.application to /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_3_0_0_0.application

however when i do click the new report builder report it kicks me over to http://company.com/ReportServer_MossEnt  which itemizes out each individual sharepoint site in the farm.

Is the integration of ssrs 2008 r2, sharepoint 2007 and report builder 3.0 work?  did i install the wrong version of the report builder add in?  The above is the only problem i am having now.

all servers are server 2008, 64 bit and moss 2007 enterprise with sp2 & april 2010 cu

Form based authentication Sharepoint 2007 gets redirected to login page

Hi We have sharepoint 2007 site deployed on Windows server 2008, IIS 7.0.  We extended the web application to enable forms based authentication referring to link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb975136(office.12).aspx#MOSS2007FBAPart1_Intro, we selected Kerberos instead of NTLM, behavior is like, when user tries to login into the site using OOB login.aspx, user again gets redirected to the login page. We tried to extend the web application again but this time we selected NTLM, but this time farm account (also is application pool identity) is not able login and exhibits same behavior as above, but for other users we are able to login. Has anyone come across this behavior? can anyone please guide me in correct the behavior? Regards, RK  Radhakrishna

Publishing reports from Business Intelligence to Sharepoint Services 2007

We currently have sharepoint services 2007 and SQL server 2005 installed (with reporting services) and Sharepoint SQl web part on a single box named 'king-sharepoint'.   We have sucessfully setup the reporting services from Native to integrated sharepoint with a db name of 'spkingsdb'. We are trying to publish reports to the sharepoint database using Visual Studio, as we are new to sharepoint we are confused as to how to achieve this.  We understand to publish it we need to know the path of the database (reportserver(spkingsdb)), the folder in which the reports will be published to (do we create this? If so then how?), and the server name (http://king-sharepoint/reportserver).  thanks

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...


Win server 2003+ Sharepoint 2007+SQL Server 2008 ,reports view issue?


I hope someone may shed some light on a serious obstacle encountered on a client site:

We have implemented a SharePoint integrated report services solution for the client on a single server

Server = Windows 2003

SQL = 2008

MOSS 2007

Web application = servername:8888 (default) - windows auth

Web application extension 1 servername:8889 (extranet) forms auth

Web application extension 2 servername:8887 (intranet) forms auth

Reports are visible and can be run (renders) on internal sites

However, there is an external site which allows users to access the reports - the issue is, the reports then dont run and I get this:

"An unexpected error occurred while connecting to the report server. Verify that the report server is available and configured for SharePoint integrated mode."

Though I have not actually seen the firewall config of the AAM, the client assures me it has been setup properly.

If the AAM is setup correctly, what could be the problem? The server is clearly available and confgured in SharePoint integrated mode.


has anyone experienced the scenario where clients want to publish their reports on an external site? What can one do to see any errors other than the one line message (tried enabling custom errors, but no good)

Looking for guidance: Integrated SharePoint SSRS migration and upgrade from 2007 to 2010


Our existing prod farm is MOSS 07 with an integrated SSRS instance using SQL Server 2008, both on Windows Server 2003 64bit boxes. SharePoint databases are on a different SQL Server 2008 server.

I have built a new SharePoint 2010 farm on Windows Server 2008 R2 boxes, using a single SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise server as the backend for both SharePoint databases and Reporting Services (installed in Integrated mode). We are going to be using the database-attach method of upgrading our SharePoint farm.

Is there any specific guidance out there on exactly how to migrate/upgrade Reporting Services in this scenario? I've read through some of the MSDN content (How To: Migrate a Reporting Services Installation) but nothing seems to deal specifically with doing this when in Integrated mode with SharePoint. Our business heavily relies on SSRS reports in SharePoint and also shared and custom report subscriptions via email.

We do have a dev SharePoint 2010 farm in a similar configuration that I can test migration/upgrade steps. Thanks.

reports published to SharePoint not refreshing in "sharepoint 2007"


Hello All,

My Issue: SSRS reports published to SharePoint not refreshing in “sharepoint 2007”.

The reports have the ‘Auto refresh’ property set to 15 sec. When the reports are viewed in the report manager the reports refresh and update with the new data entered in the Transactional system.

I now want to publish these reports to SharePoint in a dashboard format.

My first attempt to do this was with Performance point server. I added the report to the Performance point dashboard designer and then created a dashboard with these reports. I then published the rep

How can I filter a Sharepoint 2007 libarry list based on current user login?


Hi all.

I would like to know how I can filter a SharePoint library list based on current user login.

Suppose I have created the followings:

1) A SharePoint form library containing bunch of uploaded InfoPath form data.

2) The InfoPath form template contains a promoted text field called "TargetUser" to store user domain login (ex: DOMAIN\JOE) and every InfoPath form file in the library has a valid domain name stored in the "TargetUser" field.

I have created a custom view for the form library and would like to filter this view so only items whose "TargetUser" field matches current user's login ID are displayed.

I went to Edit View page to customize the view and tried to use the [Me] function but I got a "Filter value is not a valid text string" message instead when clicking OK. Apparently [Me] returns a Person/Group data type and the filter cannot compare its value to that of "TargetUser".

I tried using text functions (ex: TEXT([Me],"") hoping to extract default string value from [Me]. The filter accepts the parameter without any error but the resulting fitlered list does not display any items at all.

I have googled this subject for hours but I have not found any solution.

It would be greatly appreciated if anyone can help me t
