SSRS 2008 web portal issue, urgent!!

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I created a report using reporting services 2008, now I want to upload the report into the web portal so that users can start running the report from the web browser. When I opened the http://server1/ReportServer url from the browser, I just see the below, I installed full version of reporting services 2008, so I am trying to figure out what piece is missing from the installation. Please advice.

SSRS 2008 Conditional Column Visibility Whitespace Issue

Hi Everyone,I am using IIF statements to show/hide tablix columns based upon a parameter value. These statements are used as expressions in the visibility properties for the columns.If the parameter value is one that causes the column to be hidden, the coulmn does not appear on the report, but there is whitespace in its place.I have used this functionality very frequently in SSRS 2005 without the whitespace issue. The 2005 report automagically closed this whitespace up by moving the column to the right of the hidden one to now be adjacent to the column to the left of the hidden one at rendering. This is what i need to happen now in 2008.Has anyone else experienced this? If so, would you please share your solution? I am getting extremely frustrated by this...Thanks!!

2008 SSRS (R2) Oracle Client issue



We have installed SSRS 2008 R2 on 64 bit windows 2003 server, and the 64 bit oracle client to connect to oracle databases.  The tnsping, and SQL plus are working from the server.  But when we trying to access the same database from report manager using new Datasource, we will get the below error.

"Attempt to load Oracle client libraries threw BadImageFormatException. This problem will occur when running in 64 bit mode with the 32 bit Oracle client components installed."

We have installed only the 64 bit oracle client, and the Oracle folders are given with proper permissions to access it for SQL serving account which is used to run SSRS.

Any help greatly apprciated.  Thank you.

SSRS 2008 formatting issue - different in visual studio preview/pdf/excel vs. internet explorer


The formatting of the report is perfect when viewed in Visual studio and also after exporting it to pdf or excel. But when I deployed my solution and opened it on IE/Firefox there is a lot of problem in formatting. Specifically the row height is giving me a problem. I manually entered them to be 0.1in and made the CanGrow field as false to force that row height but some rows in the tablix expand ( to 0.15in, which is the height of my header). This is true for a matrix as well. Is there is a feature to lock the row height in IE o any other web browser?


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

Strange issue with a huge SSRS 2008 report (supposed to return 3 million records)



NOTE: The strange part (as mentioned in title) will come in the end.

I am running a SSRS 2008 report which fetches 3 million records from a remote server. After around 1 hour the report processing stops and I see an error icon on the lft bottom of the browser window. When I click on that to see the error details it shows some PageRequestManagerSQLErrorException with an unknown error message with code 12029 (sometimes 12002).

When I see the reportserver logs there is an error message logged in it which says "Microsoft.ReportingServices.Library.ReportServerDatabaseUnavailableException: The report server cannot open a connection to the report server database. A connection to the database is required for all requests and processing. ---> Microsoft.ReportingServices.Library.ReportServerDatabaseUnavailableException: The report server cannot open a connection to the report server database. A connection to the database is required for all requests and processing. ---> System.InvalidOperationException: Timeout expired.  The timeout period elapsed prior to obtaining a connection from the pool.  This may have occurred because all pooled connections were in use and max pool size was reached."

The <DatabaseQueryTimeOut> value in the report server configuration file is already having a value set to 7200 seconds(2 hours).<

SSRS 2008 w/CU6 - Parameter Default Value Refresh Issue.



We are experiencing trouble with a parameter default value (parameter 2) not refreshing when it's parents parameter value is updated (parameter 1).  The problem parameter (2) has specified values in the available values, and has a dataset that loads the default values depending a parameter above it.

The first time that parameter 1 is selected, parameter 2 is updated with the correct default value... BUT, when parameter 1 is changed, parameter 2 does not update.

If I change the problem parameter's (2) available values to the dataset where the default values come from, it works fine, but that doesn't fill the business requirement of this report.  I also tried setting parameter 2 properties to "always refresh" but that doesn't appear to refresh the default values.

What else can I try?








Page numbering issue in SSRS 2008 R2 when converting to PDF

For rdl files created in SSRS 2008, the page numbering will render Page 1 of 0 but only for PDF.  Using OverallTotalPages instead of TotalPages only works on a 2008 R2 server.  On 2008, OverallTotalPages causes an error.

How do I get the page numbering to work on PDF without using OverallTotalPages?  I need to be able to change the files, do testing, then updgrade the SSRS instance.  I can't break existing SSRS 2008 reports.

Or is there any equivalent of the above expression to work in sharepoint

SSRS 2008 issue with subreports



I have a report with a sub-report. My main report will pass parameters to the subreport. This is working in SSRS 2005 but when I run in SSRS 2008, the parameters are not passed. When I click on subreport properties and check the Parameter collection, the value passed  is marked as "Unknown collection member".

The parameter expression is 

=First(Fields!B.Value, "Header")

Fields!B.Value is marked as unknown. Header is another dataset that contains the value.

Many Thanks.

Issue with toolbar when loading the RDL (upgraded to ssrs 2008 R2) via report viewer in MOSS 2007 se

Our front end server is Office SharePoint Server 2007 and the RS is SSRS 2008 R2 (native mode).

The toolbar is different when loading the same RDL (upgraded to SSRS 2008 R2) through report viewer and report manager. In report manager, the toolbar is color blue while when displayed through report viewer the color of the toolbar is light brown/yellow. Color blue indicates it is using the latest version of SSRS while the other color for previos version. Aside from that, the font of several texts in a table has increased to one point when viewed via report viewer compare to when viewed via report manager.  Is there an existing fix for this?

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 2008 migration issue


After migrating reports from SSRS 2005 report to SSRS 2008  using visual studio 2008 report designer we lost filter conditions for reports. In tablix property window we are able to see only one filter condition out of 8 filters defined in orginal source file. 

When we check RDL file the filters exists and when we deploy the report to sql server 2008 it works good.

When we try to edit report in 2008 report designer and save it it removes all the filters.  When we deploy the report after editing in report designer it shows partial data.  We are using filters to satisfy in condition
