Reporting Services 2008 - footer problem when exporting to Word

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

I have a footer that I want to show up on the last page only. 

I use the following expression for the text box under text box properties --> visability

=IIF(Globals!TotalPages = Globals!PageNumber,

False, True)

When I run the report in reporting services, it does only print the footer on the last page.  When exported to Word, footer prints on all pages.

My questions: 

1.  Is my expression ignored in Word for the footer, so I will not be able to do this in the footer?

2.  Is there another way to have something print at the bottom of the last page that will be recognized when exported to MS Word (report size will vary based on data returned)? 

Any help is appreciated.

Kind regards.

Problem with install Reporting Services 2008



I'm configuring a new installation of SQL Server 2008 Express with Advanced Services, but the Reporting Services doesn't work.

When I open the page http://localhost/ReportServer, show the HTTP 500 Internal Server Error.

I fixed this error givin permissions to Network Service to this directory. (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb418935.aspx)

But now show this message:

Excessive Deadlocking Reporting Services 2008 Integrated.

Hi, we have a major issue with deadlocking on our reporting Server TEMPDB (REPORTSERVERTEMPDB). The platform is a Sharepoint Integrated platform allong the following lines 2 WFE Servers (NLB) 2 Sharepoint application servers 2 SQL Reporting Services (NLB) Cluster hosting Sharepoint DB's Cluster hosting Reporting Services DB's and the Data. This error is occuring for both manually running reports via sharepoint and load testing, and is happening on our testing platform as well which is slightly different in configuration. Reported back to the users is "An error occurred within the report server database. This may be due to a connection failure, timeout or low disk condition within the database" Running a profile with 1224 set, we are finding deadlocks on the REPORTSERVERTEMPDB on PK_SNAPSHOTDATA. We have tried the following 1. Dropping the PK - The deadlock was then showing an OBJID which we could not identify. 2. Change the database properties to READ-COMMITTED_SNAPSHOT and ALLOW_SNAPSHOT_ISOLATION to ON 3. Re-create and change the PK to ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS OFF None have these have had an impact on the issue This has become apparent since the following actions were taken 1. The setting of caching has been enabled by the developers 2. The Report Server DB's were moved from the Sharepoint Cluster to the Data Cluster. I do have an XDL file from Profiler but it is to

SQL Server 2008 Install failure - Reporting Services Rule Failures

I'm installing SQL Server 2008 on Windows 7.  I'm going through the install and on the "Installation Rules" page I have two failures: Reporting Services Catalog Database File Existance Reporting Services Catalog Temporary Database File Existance Clicking on each of the failures they both say that each file exists "Select a reporting services file-only mode installation" Clicking the "Help" button tells me to "Rename, move, or delete the files" This is the only information I can find on this exact failure.  I'm not technical enough to know exactly where these files are or what they are named.  I cannot proceed any further without correcting this issue.  I'll include some of the shorter summary log files.  I can include other detail log files if that would help. Thank you so much for any help.

Windows service can't use Reporting Services on SQL Service 2008 R2

Hello. I have a Windows service that run as Local System account. The service uses the Reporting Services ReportService2005.asmx web service. When I have SQL Server 2008 installed, I have no problems and my service is able to browse and create report. After I have installed SQL Server 2008 R2 I get the error "The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized." when the service tries to use the web service.

How to save Windows credentials to a data source in SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 using Visual

I am trying to create a shared data source for SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 that uses a specific Windows user ID and password to connect to the database. Using the Report Manager web interface, if I create a shared data source and specify "Credentials stored securely in the report server", I can check the "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source" checkbox. This tells SSRS that the user ID and password I specify are from a Windows user, not a SQL Server user. I want to create the shared data source using Visual Studio though. In Visual Studio I have an option to use stored credentials but there is no equivalent of the "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source" checkbox. SSRS always assumes that user and password are for a SQL Server user, not a Windows user, and thus the connection fails. Does anyone know how to tell Visual Studio that the stored credentials are for a Windows user?

Reporting Services 2008 - Anonymous Access

Hello,   In SSRS 2005 I was able to grant anonymous access to my reports by changing the authentication mode for the Reporting Services virtual directory in IIS to Anonymous and then adding the 'account used for anonymous access' to the permissions on the appropriate Reporting Services directories (in report manager).   Now with SSRS 2008 there are no virtual directories in IIS.   I tried to follow the instructions given:   http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc281310.aspx (Authentication Types in Reporting Services)   Which instructed me to use the custom AuthenticationType, and following the instructions here:   http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc281383.aspx (How to: Configure Custom or Forms Authentication in Reporting Services)   which just got me an error: The Authentication Extension threw an unexpected exception or returned a value that is not valid: . (rsAuthenticationExtensionError) Get Online Help For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors   Any ideas on how to set up anonymous access to SSRS2008?   Thanks for any time and help!   -Tim

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
