Convert Xml content from a Dataset to another Dataset for SSRS report?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 17, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hi All Does anybody know how to convert xml field from SQL Query to Dataset? For example I have a table T with Fields A(VARCHAR), B(INT), & C(XML). Field C has <test><row>ROW 1</row><row>ROW 2</row></test> I make a query to get this data and call this Dataset1 Now I want the Column C content to be converted into a dataset  call it Dataset2 so that I can drag and drop tables from there to make my reports. Is it possible to do it without using webservice?Another limitation I have, I should not have to connect to DB again, so this boils down to use the already data contained in Dataset1. I was trying to somehow embed this XML content in the query at runtime dynamically? I am currently looking for a way to use the Dataset1 as the datasource and and parse the XML content of Dataset1 to Dataset2. Also, is it that XML content needs to hardcoded in the query, can't we do it dynamically and run the query?

How to use .XSD file as DataSet to create SSRS report?



I am  planning to create a SSRS report and lunch it in a ASP.NET web application (not using report server). Since the dataset need to be manipulated before used to generate report (some data fields of tables need to be filled  using data got from other system using COM+ components) , I hope I can use a .XSD file as the DataSet to create SSRS report and bind data source dynamically in code. It is not a problem using Crystal Report, but I have no idea how to do it either in Report Designer or in VS 2005. Please advise





Rdl Report's Parameter DataSet Using SSRS




I have to design a Page Similar to Report Server's Viewer Page where if any Parameter is multivalued and if any Stored Procedure/Query Name is specified in the Report, then a it is internally executed and checkbox dropdown list is displayed to select the values.

Similar to that I have to design an aspx page with the similar behaviour. How to get Stored Procedure Name(if Specified/Query) of any Parameter of a report? So that I can bind my Checkbox list on the aspx page.


Please Help!


Getting SSRS Report DataSet Field list from C#


Hi All,


1. We have requirement where users can build there own SSRS Reports and integrate it with the existing system dynamically.

2. We have an Existing Application (Called APP1), our approach is user will build the report as per there requirement and from APP1 we have report configuration screen when user will select the report file to import to our system.

3. While doing importing, we have special requirement like

3.1 Retrieve the all fields from the Report DataSource and display to the user

3.2 User configures that what values they want to filter when the report is shown from the application. ex: employee information is      displayed in the report, DataSet query is "select empid,empname,..... * from employee" 

        3.3 from APP1 when user gives the report we have to dynamically load the report and get the fields from the dataset, so user can                configure like this, when the report is shown report must ask for parameter value for empid .


how to execute all the dataset in SSRS report in parallel.

Include a Crystal Report in .NET Web Service for Dynamic In-Memory-Only DataSet



I would like to use Crystal Reports in a .NET web service.  Ultimately I would like to convert my report document to a PDF and then return the PDF as a byte array. 

My .NET DataSet is generated dynamically at run-time.  It consists of four related tables.  Since my DataSet does not have a physical datasource, I created an XML Schema file.  I then added the XML Schema file to the web service project with Add Existing Item. 

A solution for working with a dynamic in-memory DataSet exists for ASP.NET web sites and client-based forms.  I tried to use this method as it is published.  When that didn't work I tried creating the report and XML Schema directly in the web service project, but that also didn't work.


The problem is apparent when you try to set the datasource.......the code bombs on the call to SetDataSource(DataSet) with the message
ex = {"The data source object is invalid."}

Crystal Reports would save me a lot

Shared dataset in SSRS 2008 R2 running on SSAS 2005

I am trying to create a report in SSRS 2008 R2 using SSAS 2005 as a datasource. My dataset has a date parameter. When I create an embedded dataset in my report everything works fine, but when I create a shared dataset with the exact same mdx query, I get the following error: An error occurred during local report processing. The definition of the report 'xxxx' is invalid. The Value expression for the report parameter 'DateCalendarHierarchy' contains an error: [BC30034] Bracketed identifier is missing closing ']'. Does anybody have any ideas? Is this a bug? Thanks, Louis

Iterate through rows of dataset in report's custom code

Hello, How can I iterate through the rows of a dataset in the custom code? I have a report containing a dataset. I pass the dataset as a parameter to the custom code function. But what then? Where is a reference about the available members etc.? Here is my dummy sample code so far: Public Function ShowParameterValues(ByVal ds as DataSet) as object() Dim codes() As Object Array.Resize(codes,dc.???.Count) codes(0)=ds??(field???)(row??) return codes End Function As the task I want to accomplish is very simple, I want to keep it in the custom code instead of writing any custom assemblies etc.   Thank you!

SSRS 2008 R2 Dataset Field Value Property Data Type not numeric

We're building SSRS 2008 R2 reports using SSAS as data sources.  There are several occaissions where the data types of certain dataset field values that represent cube measures are not numeric.  As such, when these fields are used in an aggregate function they throw an error.  Is there a way to remedy this in the dataset? Thanks for your help.

Large Dataset Downloaded Before Rendering Report's First Page



I'm hoping to understand the behavior of SSRS a bit better in the following scenario (SSRS 2008).  A single matrix (tablix) exists on the report.  No other objects are on the report.  That matrix is populated with 1.1 million rows of data totaling about 200MB.  Why does SSRS download the entire dataset prior to rendering the report's first page or am I missing something here?

When previewing the report, the local .data file bloats to 200MB indicating all dataset rows are being returned.  The matrix does not contain any sorting, all cell "can grow" and "can shrink" properties are set to false, no expressions are used anywhere, and even the table's column data types from which the data is being pulled are appropriate.  In other words, I believe I've reduced storage and CPU needs while eliminating elements that add overhead when rendering a report.

The specific scenario here is a researcher previewing the first few pages of data then choosing to download the entire dataset.  MS documentation I've read refers to "soft page breaks" when rendering as HTML and left me with the impression that perhaps SSRS needs to know the entire height of the dataset before it'll slice the report into pages.  It's odd to me though that it needs to download 1.1 millions rows of data befor
