Is it possible to have a dynamic data source

  
I am looking to develop a SSRS report, and the idea is that I want to view backup history on various DB servers. I would like to have a drop down list of servers, and from there I can choose a server and a query will run on that server. I have been trying to find out some information on this, but my understanding is that this can be done via URL, but not sure if thats the best way to do this. Thanks.

Adding source redirect code to end of a URL which used a dynamic data value

  
I'm trying to add some source redirect code to the end of a URL in a Data Form Web Part on a simple SharePoint aspx page. This is the basic url: /itservices/helpdesk/Lists/Service%20Requests/DispForm.aspx?ID={@ID} However I want to add a source redirect to the end of the URL so that it returns to a particular page rather than the list's default page. I have tried all of the following: /itservices/helpdesk/Lists/Service%20Requests/DispForm.aspx?ID={@ID}&source=/itservices/Pages/MyOverview.aspx That causes an error in the web part stating "This Web Part does not have a valid XSLT stylesheet: Error; A semi colon character was expected". I tried replacing the ampersand with the URL encoded character: /itservices/helpdesk/Lists/Service%20Requests/DispForm.aspx?ID={@ID}%26source=/itservices/Pages/MyOverview.aspx But when opening from this URL the form contains no data. What am I missing or can this not be done? Thanks.  

Efficiency: new column in source query or derived column task?

  
Hi All, I've just started working on an SSIS package that pulls data from an OLE DB Source by a query. A new column needs to be added based on the value of a queried column. I was wondering if it's better to do that in the query or with a derived column? A simple example: I have a table that contains CustomerName and CustomerCode (this one can be V /valid/ or I /invalid/). I need to store the CustomerCodeDesc in a separate column in the destination table. Is it better to alter the query like this: SELECT CustomerName, CustomerCode, CASE WHEN CustomerCode = 'V' THEN 'Valid' ELSE 'Invalid' END AS CustomerCodeDesc FROM CustomerTable Or is it better to use a DerivedColumn task in the DataFlow? Or maybe it doesn't really matter...

Excel Data Source SSIS AcquireConnection failed 0x80004005 unspecified error

  
Nuances of using Excel data sources with SSIS Your Development Machine Setup Needs Jet Drivers, available along with the default Office install so if you have Excel working fine locally, this is enough. Installing the "Office Data Connectivity Components" (download file name AccessDatabaseEngine.exe) as well as having Office installed corrupts the Jet Driver stack so that SSIS in VS 2008 cannot create the object to read the XLS file. You will see the title error "Unspecified Error" and "80004005" code. Resolution: Uninstall the Jet Engine pack on your development XP machine if you have Office. It will be listed as something like "Microsoft Access Database Engine (2010)". Run Office 200x setup with the Repair option and reboot. Try configuring the task in SSIS and it should be able to read the Sheet names again and columns.  Live Server (32-bit and 64-bit) Deploying your SSIS package to a server without Office 200x means it will not have the Jet Engine drivers to read XLS, XLSX files. You must install the 32-bit Office Data Connectivity Components - Jet Drivers mentioned above found here  (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=7554f536-8c28-4598-9b72-ef94e038c891&displaylang=en). There are no 64-bit drivers; therefore regardless of 32 or 64-bit live environments, this step is the same. You shoul

Load and parse a file where the file path is located in a column of a flat file source

  
Hi, I have a situation where I have a CSV that contains a bunch of data that populates a bunch of related tables with FK constraints directly.  Thats no problem.  The problem is that one of the columns specifies a filepath to an XML file that is supposed to contain data to be populated in a table with an FK constraint.  How do I specify the file name to the XML source component at runtime? For example TableA has columns: TableAID GroupName TableB has columns TableBID TableAID (FK to Table A) MemberID (the data in question) TableA has a 1 to many relationship with Table B. The CSV has a bunch of columns including: TableAID File path to list of members for each group. I don't know how to solve this problem.  I tried using a ForEach ... but I couldn't get it to work. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Trouble importing strange column format report from Excel 2007 to SQL 08

  
Hi, I'm not sure whether this belongs in this section or the SSIS one so hopefully I've got it right!  Hoping someone will be able to help with a problem I'm having importing a report with header and detail rows from our antiquated POS system into SQL 2008 tables.  The reports export in Excel 2007 format and for each header row there can be one or more detail rows starting from column B.  As such I've tried several things such as openrowset, an Access 12.0 OLE DB source in SSIS and even COM automation of Excel to try and write a conditional split which will hold the header details in variables then write them to rows alongside the detail rows.  I've pasted a small sample of the data here as I wasn't able to attach it: 01/07/2010 @ 11:18 Page: 1 RECEIVING: Voucher Journal Sort: VC|Str|Vou Date|Vou #|Document SID Filter: Voucher Date: 01/06/2010@12:00a..30/06/2010@11:59p Include Item detail: DCS|Item#|Desc1|Attr|Material|Size|Qty VC Str Vou Date Vou # Qty ABC 001 15/06/2010 12345 38 E NN 66 200148 XXXXXXXX RED SHAD E NN 66 200149 YYYYYYYYY BLACK GO E PP 60 200154 ZZZZZZZZZ BLACK CDE 002 16/06/2010 13839 8 F SA 35 217500 XXXXXXXX Natural F SA FL 218674 YYYYYYYYY Chalk F SA WE 221462 ZZZZZZZZZ White FGH 001 21/06/2010 13905 3 F SH 85 126260 XXXXXXXX Navy IJK 001 23/06/2010 13914 3 E AA 61 250005 YYYYYY

Microsoft Excel and Sharepoint KPI's (External Data Source)

  
This is my first post i hope i get a clear answer for my question. I recenty have been working on KPI's drawn from Microsoft Excel documents that i created. However, as we know, external data sources in excel don't work with sharepoint. If that was possible it would have saved the company a lot of time and effort My questions are: Is there any way to have external data sources with some advanced modifications, or any other way that would simulate this process? (External data update) Can i directly update my data by tampering the database where the excel file is saved?   I don't know if the files uploaded in sharepoint are stored in a database, so i want some validation around this. (Name of the database, path etc.)   Hope you can shed some light to my questions Thanks in advance Theo

Saving Document With Column items applied via excel macro

  
I have an excel macro that pulls data down from columns within worksheets that will take an excel spreadsheet and save it as a PDF file into seperate folders based off criteria set in the files. Getting the files into the proper directory is not the problem i'm having. When the script executes it saves the documents directly to our sharepoint site, but the custom columns A B C D etc are all blank and some are 'required' items which sets the document as checked out until i go into the list and enter the required data. Is there anyway to make this macro export as PDF and set the required data for me in the sharepoint column so it checks the documents in for me? I'm figuring this is a simple set of meta datatags but I don't know the syntax for them and I didn't find anything like this on the forum anywhere else. ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, Filename:= _ "http://DirectoryStructureHere/corporate%20BoFi/pdfs/" & NewFileName & ".pdf" _ , Quality:=xlQualityStandard, IncludeDocProperties:=True, IgnorePrintAreas _ :=False, OpenAfterPublish:=False 'Exports the print area as a PDF document named the new filename "Modified: to sharepoint"
