Build a weekly status report for a team

I am using an InfoPath form to build a weekly status report for a large team. Each section must submit the form, then I want them to merge and still contain who submitted which portion. I have gotten as far as getting the template to be on the server, updating it with new data, but when I merge the data it does not retain the project name or delineate which project submitted which part of the data. Below is a generic list of the form. I would like to merge all of the basic reports into one large report which still shows the same basic information in a large merged document. Is this possible? and if so how?

LS Status Report showing false alert state

I have log shipping every 15 minutes working between 2 servers, and while the secondary server reports everything ok (time since last copy, restore are all under 15 minutes), the primary server reports that the time since last backup is 7400+ minutes.  I have verified that the LS backup job has no failures.  How can I correct this false error state and get the primary server to start reporting actual statuses?   The LS monitor is on the secondary server.

Status of Accessing Nested Objects in Data Source of Local Report Does Not Function


We recently upgraded out platform to .NET 4.  We are also using Microsoft Reporting dlls.  Unfortunately, we found that the upgrade broke all of our reports.  Researching the cause, we found this article:


It seems that this issue has been open for some time now and I have not seen a good workaround (except for the shim class which is not really feasible for us).  Can I please get a status update for this?  Is there some other type of resolution?

Thank you,

Workflow automatic weekly/monthly status report



We have an error reporting system on WSS 3.0. The responsible person for this system wants to get a weekly or monthly status email that tells about number of unclosed items, number of items that are done 50% etc to her mail address.

Is it possible to create a wrokflow that does this?

replication status report


Hi everyone,

From last week, my company introduces the replication as the new HA method and my boss wants me to create a report to show the replication status and send out hourly.

I know for the log shipping, we can let the SSRS call the sp_help_log_shipping_monitor SP to get the LS status report. But I am very new to replication and replication looks much complicated.

Could someone advise me how I can get the replication status information? It is better if it has the same style as the Transaction Log Shipping Status report, including the publisher, distributor and replica server and db name and the latency information ... etc... (as detailed as possible). Please tell me which DMV could I use.

Alternating row background for first column of a report


is there a way to make the first column of a report use the an alternating background color? 

I have the background color set for the entire row however it does not work for the first column if the color is set to an expression.  If I just set it to a color i.e. red it works just fine. If I insert a dummy column to the left it works just fine (but the dummy column does not work, presumably because it is first??).

In the file below only the textbox for part number does not show an alternating background.  All others work correctly.

                    <Textbox Name="PartNumber">

Customising filters in .NET 4


I have a .NET 3.5 Dynamic Data site that I am now overhauling to make it work under .NET 4.  I have managed most of it now (painfully!) but am struggling to get my old custom filters to work.

Under .NET 3.5, the default filter mark-up looked like this:

<asp:FilterRepeater ID="FilterRepeater" runat="server">
        <asp:Label runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("DisplayName") %>' AssociatedControlID="DynamicFilter$DropDownList1" />
        <asp:DynamicFilter runat="server" ID="DynamicFilter" OnSelectedIndexChanged="OnFilterSelectedIndexChanged" />
    <FooterTemplate><br /><br /></FooterTemplate>
This code shows all possible filters above the table; i.e., every column in the table containing a foreign key to another table.  I didn't want to see them all, just the one I was interested in, so previously I had this mark-up in my ListDetails.aspx file:

<asp:Label runat="server" Text="Panel" AssociatedControlID="DynamicFilterPanel$DropDownList1" style="padding-left: 20px;" />
<asp:DynamicFilter runat="server" ID="

Category attribute of user control property does not work correctly in categories tab.



I have a User Control (ascx) and a property which a want to display in my categories tab in Visual Studio in the category named "Styles".

[Category("Styles"), DefaultValue(""), Description("The value for formating something.")]
public String MyFormatProperty
set { /* the code for set */; }
get { /* the code for get */; }

And here is the problem: Actually I do not need a get, because I only have to set the property (write only property). But when I omit the get, the property is displayed in the "Misc" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio. Only when I code the get as well, then the property is displayed correctly in the "Styles" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio.

Does anybody know why? How can I display the category correctly only with set?

Thanks, S.

populate report viewer by code


Hi all

I have a button "Show Report" to show some data from table

what I should write under this button to populate the reports ?

A connection could not be made to the report server http://localhost/ReportServer.



  • I created a Report using Business Intelligence Studio. Its working working well, i can able to view records. But when i try to deploy the report an error occurs specifying that "A connection could not be made to the report server http://localhost/ReportServer. (Microsoft Report Designer)".
  • I open the IIS 7 and find out virtual directories "Reports" and "ReportServer" are available.
  • I check on the browser and type "http://localhost/reports".  I find the browser direct to this url: http://localhost/reports/Pages/Folder.aspx and find error specifying the following one:

         Error:The report server is not responding. Verify that the report server is running and can be accessed from this computer.

  • when i type http://localhost/reportmanager, i found the error:

    HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found
