Character spacing issue SSRS 2005 custom font

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hello together, we are facing a strange character spacing issue in SSRS 2005 SP3 (Version 9.00.4035.00). As we export the report to a pdf file, we get unwanted spaces between each character. The report uses custom fonts. Is there any known issue related to this? I appreciate your help. Thanks!  Kind regards Moritz Mars

SSRS 2005 to 2008R2 custom code migration issue


We have an SSRS 2005 report that we upgraded to 2008R2 with custom code in the report properties code tab that no longer works.  We checked permission setting in the report server config files, checked if the data set was passig nulls and it is not, looked to see if we ignored the error if the report would render the correct value anyway despite the error and it did not, tried different code variations and referencing different system libraries without luck....we are truly baffled.  The only thing that does work is setting the total to 0 and removing the loop through the jsColl to compute the total.  Here is the code that used to work on 2005.  Any ideas why it does not work on 2008R2?  We call it in an expression =Code.getTotal()

Font/letter spacing issue when printing from SSRS 2008 report page


We are developing reports in SSRS 2008.  When printing from the SSRS report page, we are seeing that that some text is "clumping" together or spaced oddly. I have tried a variety of printers so it's not printer-specific. If you export from the SSRS page to PDF or to Word and then print, everything prints as expected.

Nothing is as good as real text/names/data, but to reproduce, simply create several text boxes with...

I used several common fonts...
Arial, 10 pt (SSRS 2008 default)
Times New Roman, 12 pt (Office 2003 default)
Calibri, 11 pt (Office 2007 default)
Verdana, 11 pt
Tahoma, 11 pt

In the example above, I used normal weight, nothing fancy... If you use bold and underline, which is common for a page/column header or footer, this issue is even more apparent.

It feels similar to the following issue: https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/482312/ssrs-report-font-rendering-issue

A workaround would obviously be to export to PDF and then print, but these are steps that our end users shouldn't have to (and won't want to) put up with to produce reports/invoices/etc. that ultimately go

Issue with Enable and Disable Parameters in SSRS 2005

Hi Guys, I am currently facing an issue with Enabling and Disabling Parameters in SSRS 2005. Here is my scenario. I am having the following 4 parameters - ParamType (has values 1,2,3), ParamMonth, ParamStartDate, ParamEndDate Now What I want is When I select ParamType = 1 and 2 then ParamMonth should be enabled and ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should be disabled. When I select ParamType = 3 then ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should be enabled and ParamMonth should be disabled. I have done google search on this issue and found out that this is not possible at run time. Is there any alternative for this issue? If the above is not possible, I would like to get atleast in this way : When I select ParamType = 1 and 2 then ParamMonth should show the values (from dataset named MonthDataSet and default should be the latest Month) and ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should show as NULL. When I select ParamType = 3, then I need to enter ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate values manually or pick via datepicker and ParamMOnth should show as NULL. I am not sure whether this is possible or not....but just trying to get in some way. Here is the query used in MonthDataSet : Select Month_Code, Month_Name from MonthTable. Thanks

SSRS in place upgrade from 2005 to 2008 issue


I did an inplace upgrade of SSRS 2005 to 2008 and now the reports are throwing the following error. The reports were all working fine and there is a datasource with the name 'Data Source Name' without the '_'.  Please help.

  • An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)
    • The data source 'Data_Source_Name' cannot be found. (rsDataSourceNotFound)

SSRS 2005 Render Format Excel Issue with Time Field


I have a report that uses a datetime field but gets populated only with the time. So, in SQL db, it gets stored with a default date value of 1899-12-30 12:01:01 with the correct time filled in. Report in SSRS Preview mode displays the value just fine when I use the Time format in Layout mode. I build and deploy and able to view the report in a web browser with no problem displaying the time field. But when I subscribe to the report and choose Excel render format, when I open up the Excel file from the email that was sent, I get negative decimal values. I have tried every possible Time format in SSRS but I get the same result. I also tried just the default and still gives me negative decimal values that show up as ####### in Excel.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

SSRS 2005 Web Service Issue


I added the SSRS Web Service to my VS 2008 Project and found some of the methods are simply not exposed or I am doing something wrong (which is most certainly the case). Below is the article I am referencing:


Here the URL I used for the service: http://192.168.XXX.XXX/reportserver/ReportService2005.asmx?WSDL

SQL Server: 2005 (SP2)

Below is my code:

Imports System.Web
Imports TestJunk.SSRS_WebService 'Designated Name of Service

Public Class Form1

 Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

Data source not found issue in subscribed report (subscribed in ssrs 2005) , with shared data source


Recently we have upgraded from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008. Following is the issue am facing in some reports in SSRS 2008. More details are below. Any solution/ cause for the issue would be of great help.

 1) Reports having issue are the ones which were deployed in SSRS 2005 through SUBSCRIPTION (Listed under My Subscriptions) and now tried to view in SSRS 2008.

2) The reports use a shared data source with name ‘Test Center’

3) After upgrading to 2008 and when we try to open the report data source not found error is thrown. “An error occurred during client rendering. An error has occurred during report processing. The data source ‘Test_Center’ cannot be found". Why does it have ‘_’ added in the data source name !!

4) When we go to the report Properties – Data sources and check the path of the shared data source, the path is correct and the data source do exists in the path.

5) If we go to report Properties – General – Report Definition – select Edit and save the RDL. Immediately select Update and browse the saved RDL and upload. The report works fine. However the data source reference still remains same.

6) Also if we deploy a report fresh referring the same data source, that too runs fine with no issues.

Issue while migrating reports from SSRS 2005 to SSRS 2008


We developed reports for SSRS 2005 using SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio (Visual Studio 2005).


We migrated these reports for SSRS 2008 using SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio (Visual Studio 2008) by opening the Reports project folder in SSRS 2008.


After migration when the report is ran without any changes made in the design mode we get the correct output.


The issue arises when we try to edit the report in the Design mode. In design mode, it shows only 1 'Tablix Filter' Value and loses the rest of the 'Tablix Filter' values. Specifically, If we try and edit the Tablix properties (In Design mode) all the values in the 'Filters' property disappear.

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

Is Conditional Subscription possible in SSRS 2005?


Hi Guys,

Is there a way to set up a subscription that will send e-mails based on the contents of a report? For example, I want to schedule a daily subscription that will only send an e-mail if the report contains data, otherwise it will do nothing for that day. i.e If the report has more than one row, it should send the mail otherwise it should not send the mail.....

Is it possible in SSRS 2005 or is there any other way to do it???

SSRS 2005 "Mixed" Authentication Mode


I have a web application where users can authenticate using either SiteMinder or Windows domain accounts.  This is actually configured as two separate virtual directories within IIS 6.  Both applications need to use the same instance of SSRS.  Is it possible to configure the SSRS web application so that if a user is authenticated by SiteMinder it impersonates a Windows account, but if they are already Windows-authenticated that account is used instead?

Custom Search issue with freetext


Hi All,

My Environment : MOSS 2007 (sp2) with SQL Server 2005

I have a custom search webpart which uses FullTextSqlQuery to fetch the results from Index. I have a some keywords and a free text boxt to build the search query. Poeple enter their query by selecting the keywords and enter some free text into the text box.

Issue : When any PDF document (Not tested with .Doc) is searched using custom webpart with the numbers like "2,0233.21" I do not get any results returned even though the results are returned using the SharePoint out of box full text search. But when I search the content like "2+0233+21" I get results both in Out of box and in custom search webpart.

Requirement: The Custom search should be able to find the document when numbers like "2,0233.21" are entered. It should work exactly like the out of box search.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
