Only send report if data exists

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

I am trying to solve a problem where the people set up to get subscriptions only want the report emailed if it contains data.  Currently if whatever report it is does not have any data matching the report criteria they are still emailed an empty report.  I know I could add logic that basically runs the same query as the report and if @@ROWCOUNT > 0 then I could put some logic in the actually run the report and send the subscription but as a DBA that does not make sense as that is vbasically like hitting the database twice to run the same report.


Any help would be greatly appreciated

How to not send subscription report if no data

I have a report that may or may not have data. I have a subscription setup for this report. The subscription has a defined To list. I would like to NOT send the report if there is no data on the report. I did this in SQL 2000 by raising an error from the stored procedure if there was no data. However, that approach does not seem to work with 2005. Is there another way to accomplish this?

Collaboration Data Objects: Send Microsoft Exchange Appointment Reminders to Your Pager Using CDO


Besides your typical e-mail services, Microsoft Exchange also provides the service infrastructure you need to build extensible knowledge and workflow management systems. Understanding Collaboration Data Objects (CDO) is the key to accessing these Exchange services for your own programs. With CDO you can automate tedious tasks and integrate information such as e-mail, calendars, and contacts with almost any application. This article explains how CDO enables you to access Exchange services, then walks you through a sample application that reads calendar events from an Exchange server and sends pager reminders to your users.

MDW Disk Usage for Database Report Error - A data source has not been supplied for the data source D

Hello, On the MDW Disk Usage Collection Set report, I get the following error when I click on a database hyperlink. A data source has not been supplied for the data source DS_TraceEvents SQL profiler shows the following SQL statements are executed (I've replaced the database name with databaseX) 1. exec sp_executesql N'SELECT dtb.name AS [Name] FROM master.sys.databases AS dtb WHERE (dtb.name=@_msparam_0)',N'@_msparam_0 nvarchar(4000)',@_msparam_0=N'databaseX' this returns zero rows as databaseX does not exist on my MDW central server, but is a database on a target server (i.e. one that is being monitored and uploaded into the MDW central server). 2. USE [datatbaseX] this produces the following error: Msg 911, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 Database 'databaseX' does not exist. Make sure that the name is entered correctly. why is the report looking for the database on my server? thanks Jag Environment: MDW (Management Data Warehouse) on SQL 2008 R2  

Displaying a Parameter Value in the report footer that corresponds with the parameterized data on ea

I've got a report that has only one parameter, it determines the department (or departments) to base the report on, the parameter is set to allow for multiple values. The report returns only on page per department, so the report could be anywhere from one to a hundred pages, one page per department. I've included a text box in the report footer that displays the report name and the parameter value, the expression looks like this: =Globals!ReportName & " For Department " & Parameters!Dept.Value(0)    I know that in this example the zero inside of the parenthesis of the parameter value is what is returning the actual value when the report is rendered, and I understand that the zero is value in the array of parameter values. What I'm looking to do is adapt this expression so that the parameter value rendered on each page corresponds with the data (departement) displayed on the specific page. So using the example of the data, if the user selected three departments in the parameter drop down, then each page that displayed the different department’s information would also display that departments name in the page footer text box. I'm thinking that each time a page is rendered that there is a group or global variable that can be called to provide this dynamically but I can't seem to find the information. Appreciate any help, Dan

Report Builder Report manage data sources - relink programmatically

As part of a site definition solution several report builder report rdl files are uploaded to a report folder.  After a site is created with the defintion, the reports must be manually re-linked to the data source through the UI context menu ("Manage Data Sources").  I have been trying to figure out how to do the re-linking programmatically without luck.  Any ideas?

Sys.Data.DataContext.saveChanges method doesn't send update to server after DataServiceException ex

Hello,I have a page with a simple form that updates a single record in a table in my database.The database is accessed via WCF Data Services. To load and save data from/to the server, I usethe Sys.Data.DataContext object provided by the ASP.NET AJAX library. When the "save" button on theform is clicked, I use the saveChanges method of the Sys.Data.DataContext object to send all changes to the server.Also, at the server side, I use an interceptor that checks the "Price" fields of the record, and throws a DataServiceException exception when the contents of the field is a negative number.Both the JavaScript and the interceptor (in C#) are copied below.Here is the interesting thing:When I enter a negative price in the form, the interceptor throws the exception and my form shows an error message. Good.However, if I then make one of the other fields in the form a bit shorter (for example from "abcd" to "abc"),the saveChanges method doesn't send the data to the server. But it does call the success callback that I passed in to saveChanges, creating the impressionthat the data has been saved. This happens while the Price field is still negative. I used Fiddler to make sure thatno message is sent to the server. Also, the interceptor doesn't get executed.The weird thing is that if I make one of the fields a bit longer instead (for example &q
