SSRS 2005 to 2008 upgrade: exporting to .PDF does not produce the same result


We have recently converted .rdl SSRS 2005 files to SSRS 2008 .rdl files. We do not have SSRS 2008 R2, we are working with the  first release. We are seeing issues when exporing a report to .pdf format:

1) when rendered in HTML, the function that displays page numbers (ie:page 1 of 2) for the report are correct. The standard function "Globals!TotalPages" is used to get the count of pages. We previewed a report in html in reports manager that had 1777 pages. when the report is exported to .pdf the last page displays page 1777 of 1816, even though there is no more pages beyond 1777.

2)When rendering the report in html a value is shown as "Caretaker1" but when exporting to adobe .pdf version 9.3, the same value is shown as "Caretaker2".

3)   One of our issues is

Linked server issue on test box, post upgrade 2005 to 2008 R2


In an effort to do some testing prior to upgrading our environment to 2008 R2, I made a test instance on our Dev box.  2005 instance, copied as many things as I could think of from various other instances.  Made a basic linked server to our main cluster, had a repeating job to email me results of a query across that link every few hours.


Everything was working fine until the upgrade finished.  It completed at ~7pm.  The email at 6PM came through fine (while the upgrade was in progress), the email at 8pm didn't come through.  Checked various things (DB mail was still working, tested fine).  It couldn't access the data across the linked server.  I tried deleting that link and remaking it.  Errors out.  Tried running the same scripts we use to create our standard linked servers, error out.  The only ones that I can set up and function are links to other instances on the same box.

I've looked around at other fixes for this error message and none seem to make any difference.  Log in with Domain cred's, log in with the sa account, no difference.  I can connect from other instances & servers back to this one, just not outbound from this one.  And it worked prior to the upgrade I applied to it.  All other instances on the box are 2005 as well.

Here is the message I ge

Upgrade from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 from SharePoint 2007 SSRS 2005 integrated mode


I"m attempting to upgrade from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 R2 x64 Enterprise on a server running Windows Server 2003 x64 Enterprise, SharePoint 2007 Enterprise, and SQL Server 2005 and SSRS 2005 Enterprise running in integrated mode.

I installed the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP2 Reporting Services Add-in for Microsoft SharePoint Technologies from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=35c3a13f-4b5e-4d4a-86e4-07ee307b9638&displaylang=en.

When attempting to install Report Builder 2.0, I get the error "Reporting Services Add-in for SharePoint products and technologies is not installed."

When I try to run a report (existing 2005 reports already deployed), I get the error: "Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object." The log has repeating ReportingServicesService.exe errors: #20015: Cannot open "Resources.en-US.resx": no such file or folder, and: Localized resource for token 'ManageDatasetCaching_Desc' could not be found for file with path: "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\Template\Features\ReportServer\ItemCustomActions\ecbExtension.xml" among other things.

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.

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

Moving a Copy of SQL Report Server 2005 and Upgrade to 2008

Hello, We have SQL 2005 Report Server in a Windows 2003 64 bit server box. We want to create a copy of this report server database somewhere in the domain, so that we can access it for a different purpose. My question is, will there be any complications with this? I'm thinking about the encryption key that's needed to access the database. If we are successful with this, we might also want to upgrade to SQL 2008. Thanks for your help,   Elizabeth K.

Graphs stop displaying in Report Viewer Control after upgrade to SSRS 2008 R2

We are seeing an issue where certain graphs and guages are not being displayed within a report rendered in the report viewer control after we upgraded from SSRS 2008 to SSRS 2008R2.  You can see the graphs and guages render and then disappear from the screen when two other graphs are rendered.  When I export the report to Excel or PDF then all of the graphs and guages are rendered properly. There are a total of 3 graphs and 2 guages on the report - when it completes the rendering process, you can only see two of the graphs displayed in the report viewer control - as I said before, you can see all 3 graphs and 2 guages when exporting to Excel or PDF.  Using Internet Explorer v8.  This problem manifest itself right after the upgrade. Has anyone seen a similar issue?

Issue with Enable and Disable Parameters in SSRS 2005

Hi Guys, I am currently facing an issue with Enabling and Disabling Parameters in SSRS 2005. Here is my scenario. I am having the following 4 parameters - ParamType (has values 1,2,3), ParamMonth, ParamStartDate, ParamEndDate Now What I want is When I select ParamType = 1 and 2 then ParamMonth should be enabled and ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should be disabled. When I select ParamType = 3 then ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should be enabled and ParamMonth should be disabled. I have done google search on this issue and found out that this is not possible at run time. Is there any alternative for this issue? If the above is not possible, I would like to get atleast in this way : When I select ParamType = 1 and 2 then ParamMonth should show the values (from dataset named MonthDataSet and default should be the latest Month) and ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should show as NULL. When I select ParamType = 3, then I need to enter ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate values manually or pick via datepicker and ParamMOnth should show as NULL. I am not sure whether this is possible or not....but just trying to get in some way. Here is the query used in MonthDataSet : Select Month_Code, Month_Name from MonthTable. Thanks

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!!
