Unable to create columns in document library after applying custom master page to site

Hi, I have applied a custom master page to a site.There is a document library in it. I am unable to add columns in it or change the default view.Nothing happens when I click on OK butoon after making my changes. However the columns are created/default view is changed when I apply the default master page. Guess I am missing some TagPrefix or sharepoint control on master page.I had solved this problem earlier in this way but don't remeber it now. Can anyone help?

SSRS 2008 group footer totals on a new page has a non-expected large cell height

SSRS 2008 group footer totals on a new page has a non-expected large cell height. When the group total is the first component on a new page, then this happens, but when it is part of the group on but not the first component, then it reverts to normal cell height. I have played with the advance settings now for hours, but cannot get this to work. Any ideas?  

Comparing columns with NULL values--Merge says unmatched when data is matched.

I found the article below describing this same issue with the Oracle merge statement.  It also described a work-around:    http://searchoracle.techtarget.com/tip/Merging-datasets-with-NULL-values I have been unable to find a solution to this issue for SQL Server 2008.  I am trying to do basic ETL from Staging table to a Type II dimension table in a Data Warehouse.  I am using the Merge statement with the Unique key minus the modification date as my merge key list.  I have a handful of columns (in both Staging and the DW) containing nulls in my merge key list.  I have tried the ISNULL function and the ANSI_NULL db option (OFF) with no success.  When I put zeros in the null columns, it works as expected.  I am about to try separate INSERT and UPDATE statements, but I fear that the NULL comparison issue will bite me there with the JOIN statement.  Has anyone else experienced this?  NULL values are valid in our Data Warehouse.  How can I make T-SQL handle them? Thank you for your help, Jesse

Dynamic columns on row group page

Hi, I have a SSRS (2008 R2) report on an Olap data source. On rows I have Agents (as a row group), on columns I have Stores (as a column group) and a measure, let's say SeelOutValue. I want to see sales from agents to stores. I added a page break between each group instance on the Agent row group => one page for an Agent, but the column stores are not filtered by the Agent. I want to see on an Agent page only the stores with values. My question: can I filter the columns (Stores column group) for each Agent (row group)?  Example Dataset:             Store1 Store2 Store3 Store4 Store5  Agent1     1                   1                    1     Agent2     2         2 Agent 3  .... Now an each Agent page there are all 5 stores columns (on Agent1 page column Store2 and Store4 without data). It is possible to see on Agent1 page only Store1, Store3 and Store5 columns, on Agent2 page Store1 and Store2 columns ... ?   Thanks in advance for your help!

Bar-graph style - how to keep columns in relative height of size of "graph"

Hi, I need some input for this and imagined that someone else had seen something like it: I have a box, let's say a grid, where there are some bars in it. These bars could be rectangles in a ItemsControl. The grid has a fixed height and width - but the rectangles' height (and width) are set a from a collection of numbers. These numbers go from 0 to 200 - but in periods the numbers only go from 1 to 10. If I use absolute numbers, the rectangles will be tiny in height or width if the numbers are between 1 and 10 and the Grid is 200 in height and width. How do I make the size of these rectangles relative to the tallest one? I guess I could do some calculations 'behind the scenes' in code, but is that really necessary? Is there no other way? Thanks! --Anders

SQL MAX() function selecting ALL columns and not only those in the GROUP BY clause


A school has classes. Each class has students. Each student may take up one or several courses.

One only table with thousands of rows contains the following columns (and some others):

  1. Student´s class
  2. Student id-number
  3. Student's course
  4. Student's grade (in the course)
  5. Some other rows. This table has about 25 rows

I need an only SELECT that brings ALL ROWS for each student's highest grade (grades are numbers, not letters).

In the example bellow, I have listed a fragment of the table and I have emphasized with bold and italic characters the rows that are supposed to be selected:

          Class       ID-number     Course     Grade     Row5   Row6   Row7... 

  1. Class-A         100001     Math&n

Removing columns after Merge Join ?



I have the scenario (using a third party component) where certain columns must not be present as input.

I am doing a Full Outer - Merge Join.

This results in:



but now in some cases the LeftPK may be  null in other cases the RightPK may be null,

so i'm creating a derived column to check:

ISNULL(LeftPK) ? RightPK : LeftPK

and call this the TruePK

this all works however now i'm left with 3 columns

LeftPK; RightPK; TruePK

Is there some kind of transform (other than script task) that i can use to get rid of Left and Right PK columns before sending input to next third party component?

Group by on external data columns



I created an external content type "Auction" from a SQL table. I added an external data column "Auction" to my document library and selected a few fields to be shown as additional information on "Auction". I would like to create a view where the documents are grouped by one of those additional fields, but the field I need is not shown in the view settings... Is it possible to sort/group on the additional columns comming from from my external data column?

Combine Column Group Columns Into One?


I have a dataset like this:



1........... 09-2010................25,000




I have a report that shows this data by pivoting on the month and giving the remaining amount, like this:

BID......Aug-2010 Remaining........Sep-2010 Remaining.......Oct-2010 Remaining........Nov-2010 Remaining



This all works just fine. However now, I want to take a date that's given, and make a "Past Due" column for anything less than the first of the month of that date.


I have this partially working, as I can filter my column group to be >= CDate(Month(Parameters!CurrentDate.Value) & "/01/" & Year(Parameters!CurrentDate.Value)).


This would give me this:

BID.......Oct-2010 Remaining........Nov-2010 Remaining

1.......... 25,000..............................100,000


How do I combine the previous months into one column? Like this:

BID......Past Due Remaining.......Oct-2010 Remaining........Nov-2
