Is there a Demo of SQL Reporting Services and Analysis ??

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
We're looking at several tools to do reporting and analysis of our SQL 2005 data.   We want to create canned web based reports We want internal - non-developers to create canned reports for our customers We want internal - non-developers to create ad hoc reports We want to slice and dice the data in various way and produce graphs and trend reports - pretty stuff for management   Tools like Business Objects Edge satisfy many of these requirements but we already have SQL 2005 which I understand can do similar things.  I can easily get a demo of a companys products to show me what can and can't be done.   Does anyone know how I can get a SQL demo using these services ?  I tried contacting Microsoft but didn't get anywhere   I don't have the luxury of time to learn all the benefits and functionality to understand if SQL is the best way to go.  Database wise - yes - but Analysis and Reporting ??   Thanks

OLAP: Build an OLAP Reporting App in ASP.NET Using SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services and Office XP


Many organizations analyze their business-critical data using Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) technology. OLAP-based data mining provides a way to query multidimensional data sets and drill down into the data to find patterns. ASP.NET and the Microsoft Office Web Components (OWC) enable Web-based OLAP reporting. The OWC controls include PivotTable and Chart components that can be embedded in a Web page and scripted by programmers. In this article, the authors build a Web-based OLAP reporting app using ASP.NET, OWC, and SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services to illustrate the process.

SP2010 + Reporting 2008 R2 + Analysis Services 2008 R2

I want to create a solution based on sp2010 in which the users can create their own reports with Report Builder and have an Analysis Services cube as the data source I did is the following : i have activated the Site collection features for reporting, i have created a data source which is the cube, i've created the model and also added the reporting document types to a document library and now i am ready to create reports The problems comes when i want to create this from a location outside the server. It doesn't work and gives me the following error : Semantic query execution failed.  (rsSemanticQueryEngineError) ---------------------------- Query execution failed for dataset 'DataSet1'. (rsErrorExecutingCommand) ---------------------------- An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted) The location from where i want to access is a computer from another domain but i log in with a SP2010 user and also pertaining to the SP2010 domain. This user has Member Site rights for the Report Model, dataset, report. DataSet1 is the default name assigned by the Report Builder. The issues appears if I define the dataset before the report or during the report creation with the Report Builder. The authentication for the data source is windows authentication, the permissions for the model are inherited from the site, and the dataset credentials are set to Use

SQL 2008 Reporting Services Report Parameter and Analysis Services issue after upgrade

I have upgraded my SQL 2000 database and analysis server and SQL 2005 reporting services server to a new instance of SQL 2008 running database engine, analysis services and reporting services.

The analysis services database migrated successfully and I have got the database into a state where it processes fine but I am having the following problems.

- My Reports show in reporting services but the drop down list parameters are all empty.
If I change the parameter in report builder to use the display name instead of the uniquename then the drop down list populates and works until I select a value that contains a space character and then it reports a problem with the dataset used by the report.

Query for the dataset used to populate my parameter.
with member [Measures].[GroupUniqueName] as '[Site].CurrentMember.UniqueName' member [Measures].[GroupDisplayName] as'[Site].CurrentMember.Name' select { [Measures].[GroupUniqueName], [Measures].[GroupDisplayName] } on columns, { [Site].[Group].members } on rows FROM [Invoice Reporting]

Query used by the report, filtering on the selected parameter value from the drop

Reporting Services SQL 2005 .Net 4 compatibility?


I've been working on my first asp.net application and for the most part it's been pretty smooth.  Right now I'm having trouble getting reporting services working under SQL Server 2005.  I developed the site with Visual Studio 2010 and didn't think about any of the .Net 4.0 compatibility issues that have arisen.  I'm having no problems with the site communicating with SQL Server 2005 for the regular database stuff.  The only problem I'm having is with setting up Reporting Services.  I have the .Net 4.0 framework installed on the server, however Reporting Services is still using 2.x.  I'm not sure if this is a problem with SSRS or with IIS.  When i go to localhost/Reports it's reading my web.config for my application and throwing an error: "Parser Error Message: Unrecognized attribute 'targetFramework'."  This is referring to a line in my web.config where targetFramework is set to 4.0.

Software that I'm using:

  • Visual Studio 2010
  • SQL Server 2005 Standard
  • IIS 7.0
  • .Net 4.0

Any suggestions?
