Not able to use SSRS report with a parameter within Performance Point 2010


I have created a report in SSRS 2008 and have passed a parameter called Carrier to it. The report works fine on http://machinename/reports and am able to pass parameters to the report including the All Carriers parameter.

However I cannot get the report to run in PPS 2010. In PPS I have created a multi value filter called as Carrier and have passed this filter to this report. But when I execute this report I get the following error :

SSRS Report Sorting issue in Dashboard created usign Performance point services in sharepoint 2010


I have created a report in SSRS and this report is integrated within a dashboard created using performance point services in sharepoint 2010.

The report is a simple tabular report with 5 coulmns and interactive sorting is enabled on each of them.

Sorting works when the report is viewed separately but gives "Report Server Error" when I try to sort (on any column) inside the dashboard.

I have user IP instead of host name in the report server url.

Please help.



SSRS 2005 setup compare - report performance issue



I have a SQL stored procedure that is a data source for the SSRS 2005 report. I use two servers with identical hardware, let’s call them Server1 and Server2. When I run SP directly on the Server1(SQL 2005) and Server2(SQL 2005) within SQL Server Management Studio, SP runs for 10-11 seconds on each server. When I run my SSRS report that is using the procedure within BIDS or SharePoint sites (each server has its own SharePoint site with supposedly identical setup), it runs for 20 seconds on Server1 SharePoint site and for about a minute on Server2 SharePoint site as wel as witin BIDS. There is no network traffic.

When I traced performance on both servers with SQL profiler while running report within BIDS or SharePoint, I didn’t notice anything unusual; it just takes more time to process statements on Server2. I also tested several other reports and they all perform the same on both servers with maybe only a few seconds difference (Server1 is a bit faster). I suspect that SSRS for Server2 has a different setup as the performance declines only

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

ssrs 2008 R2 - report parameter with no default set throws java script error

We have recently upgraded from SQL Server 2008 to SQL Server 2008 R2....I am experiencing a problem with my report parameters on my SSRS reports. It seems that my report parameters that I do not have a specified 'default' value throws a java script error when I try and run/render the report under R2.  As soon as I put a 'default' value on the report param, everything is fine.  However, that is not the behavior we need for our reports...the user needs to pick their selection. Can anyone shed some light on this, it seems to be an AJAX problem...I need to be able to have report parameters with a list of values, but no 'default' value on the parameter.

Linked Report Subreport- Error: Subreport could not be shown on SSRS 2008r2

I've got 2 folders: /Finance /Japan In the Finance folder I have a Sales report that has 3 subreports, and a salesregion parameter. I created a linked report in /Japan to /Finance/Sales, hide the salesregion parameter, and set the default to Japan, so they can only see their region's sales data. But when a Japan user runs the Sales report, they get Error: Subreport could not be shown because they do not have access to the /Finance folder. Any ideas?

Passing XML into a SSRS report from c#

I have a SSRS report that queries an XML file. I'm calling this report from c# and redering it as a PDF. The only way I can do this is to save the XMl into a path that is already defined in the report. My question is, can I send the XML into the report so that the report uses the parameterised report as the datsource?

How do you add duplicate fields to a SSRS custom report and receive differtent output values.

I have built a custom report in SSRS 2008 using fields for supplier and customer.   I have added a Parent Row Group using the Supplier field for the group expression and used the Customer Details as my child details group. This returns a list of all customers for each supplier.   (Supplier | = Customer details ( Name, Dob etc.)   How would I add an additional Supplier field to the customer details returning only values for other Suppliers used by a customer, not the value of the Supplier listed in the Parent Group?
