How to get sum of a column from sharepoint list into SSRS(2005)

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi, I have a about 100 columns created for survey questions. I need to get the sum of each column into SSRS. Can it be done in dataset instead of adding the aggregate expression in the footer of ssrs table. Some research that I have done so far.......Under the sharepoint list there is an option for Total for each columns. I can select the sum option and it appears in the list, but how can I access this sum in SSRS.

How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.

Filter items with a date column with parameters start date and end date on a sharepoint list?

If I have alist with a view that has the columns Title, Status and Status Date and the view has some items. How Can I add a filter with two parameters, start date and end date, to only show records with status date equal to or greater than parameter start date and status date is less than or equal to parameter end date? This is a sharepoint online site and I can't create and deploy custom code, can use SPD though. Do I need to use SPD or is this something I can do in the list settings? Thanks in advance.   Edit: I had a look here http://www.endusersharepoint.com/2009/09/29/sharepoint-date-filter-filtering-a-list-by-greater-than-or-equal-to-date/ but I don't have the Date Filter web part.

Anyone got the SharePoint List Adapter working with SQL 2005?

Like the authors of some other similar posts, I cannot see the SharePoint list dataflow source and destination options after installing SharePointListAdaptersSetupForSqlServer2005.msi from codeplex.  The options do not appear in the SSIS Data Flow items tab within the "Choose Toolbox Items".  Anyone manage to figure this out? If i install it on my dev laptop - I get these options and can add them to my toolbox - however I have both SQL Server 2005 and 2008 on this machine.   On my 64 bit server however I only have SQL 2005 and nothing! I would love to use this as the last time i wrote a web service extraction is was a very unpleasant few days of my life. Ritchie

C# newbie stuck - trying to access column data in a SharePoint list in an SSIS script task

Hello, I'm sure this is the simplest question but I can't figure it out, even with Google's help. I am trying to stumble through some C# code in an SSIS script task and I am frustrated that I can't figure out how to do the easiest things.  I eventually want to find data in a column,and then use another list as a lookup to replace that value with another where the existing value matches a value in the lookup list.  So, the data in my (multiple choice) column might be "apples; bananas" and in another list I have a row that contains two columns, the first holding the value "Apples" and the second containing "Red Delicious" and my original column should read: "Red Delicious; bananas." But, alas, I can't even figure out how to see the data that is in a column. Here is my code: /*<br/> Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services Script Task<br/> Write scripts using Microsoft Visual C# 2008.<br/> The ScriptMain is the entry point class of the script.<br/> */<br/> <br/> using System;<br/> using System.Data;<br/> using Microsoft.SharePoint;<br/> using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;<br/> using System.Windows.Forms;<br/> using Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities;<br/> <br/> namespace ST_08becda4c05c49cd9f30ea76110076cd.csproj<br/> {<br/> [

SSRS 2008 R2 - Sharepoint list item hyperlink bug?

I have created a report based on a sharepoint list and I am using a subscription in WSS 3.0 to email the report to the users once a week. I want one column in the report to act as a hyperlink to the sharepoint list item but in the email version of the report, the URL has the list item ID repeated twice, which renders the link invalid. Initially, I tried using the 'Encoded Absolute URL' from the sharepoint list query to populate the hyperlink but this just gives a 404 NOT FOUND error and I have found documented in several places on the web that this link only works with document libraries. So instead, I decided to create the URL for the action using an expression, like this: ="http://myserver/mysite/Lists/mylist/DispForm.aspx?ID=" & ListItemID.Value This works perfectly in the development environment and when people run the report for themselves in the sharepoint document library where it is deployed but, for some reason, if I send the report on a schedule then I get the ID parameter repeated at the end twice. Like this: http://myserver/mysite/Lists/mylist/DispForm.aspx?ID=999&ID=999 I have tried rendering the report in several different formats (Word, PDF, MHTML, HTML) and they all seem to work fine in the development and when run within SharePoint but not when they are rendered and emailed using the scheduler. Is this a bug or am I missing so

Best way to display data of a single column from a Sharepoint Custom List

I'm trying to create pages that will automatically populate with data pulled from a sharepoint list (like title, department, contact info, etc.).   I'm using publishing pages. What would be the easiest way to do this, and how would I specify which data to pull from the list? For example, the page would be set up like this: [Title:biology] [Department:biology] [Contact Info:biology]   and when the page loads, it would look like this: Biology Lab Biology Department 123-456-7890   I want it to just pull the data -- I don't want a list view or anything like that.  I need this page to look pretty, and I need the each column's data to show up in a very specific place. How could I make pages that would do that?

How do I stop line feeds in a Hierarchy field from a SharePoint list to prevent wrapping in a SSRS r

I'm developing a Reporting Services 2005 report that includes a Hierarchy field from a SharePoint 2007 list.  The Data Source for the report is an XML type. I would like to display the Hierarchy field on 1 line.  However, it is displaying in 2 or more lines in Visual Studio 2005. The field also wraps when rendering to Acrobat (PDF) file.  How can I get rid of the embedded line feed (I believe it's "&#xA").  I've tried using the Replace function in an expression, other functions and changed the properties, e.g., the CanGrow property.  Nothing seems to work.   Here's what I get: LAW>Administrative Law LAW>Criminal Law LAW>International Law   I'd like to see something like this (I'm able to add the "/"): LAW>Administrative Law /LAW>Criminal Law /LAW>International Law/

How to get distinct values of sharepoint column using SSRS: paramter Greyed out


I'm referring to a previous thread: How to get distinct values of SharePoint column using SSRS.  I followed all the steps as set out but when I view my report, the parameter is greyed out.  I then downloaded the example report of Jin Chen.  In that report, he suggests a blank parameter label for the main parameter, as well as, a default value for the hidden parameter (which is different from the initial thread posted).  When I change my report accordingly, I get an error: An error occurred during local report processing. MainParameter.  Anyone with suggestions?

Auto Populating SharePoint List Columns based on value in one column

   Please any idea would be highly appreciated....

Thanks in advance

How to make a sharepoint list column readonly or invisible while add/edit list item in sharepoint UI


 Hi Everybody,

I have created a list in sharepoint. In that list there is a field which I want to make read only or invisible when the user tries to add or edit a list item through sharepoint UI. I want this because that particular field gets populated through a webpart and direct data entry into that field is unnecessary. Is there any way to make a sharepoint column (for me its a picture column) read only or invisible in the sharepoint UI.

thank you,

Arun Dutt
