Linked Reports - Multi-Select Parameters

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

I have searched for this but have not found any answers, or similar questions even. I have a report with several multi-select parameters. These parameters are populated by datasets that use stored procedures. When I go to "Properties" and "Parameters" of the linked reports, they do not populate the drop-down menu for the parameter, the parameter is simply blank and has an area for me to manually type in data. Is there any way to force these parameters to populate with a selectable list of options? Like would occur when running the report from the front-end interface, or setting up a subscription.

Thanks!

Passing Multi-Value Parameters between reports

  

Hi

I have two Reports PropertySearch and PropertyDetails. In PropertySearch I have  2 parameters PropertyNameSearch (textbox) , City (multi-select from a drop down). It takes some propertyName and Few Cities as input and displays a list of properties matching these two. So the list has a link to PropertyDetails for which I just need PropertyID that passes internally to the PropertyDetails. Everything works perfect.

But when I was in second report I want to go back to the first report ( which was displaying results with based on parameters) to choose a different property. So for this I have created the parameters @PropertyNameSearch , @City in my second report and I set it to hidden. Now I'm passing these two values to the second report with actual parameter PropertyID.  I have placed a link to first report in the second report that passes the @PropertyNameSearch and @City to first report. I can pass @PropertyNameSearch successfully but my problem is I cannot pass multi-value parameter @City between two reports.

Any help or suggestions ?

Thanks!

Use BDC data in list as multi-select column

  
I have a document library that uses values from another system for its metadata.  Right now, we copy the values from the primary system into SharePoint so users can choose them.  I want to find a way to use the BDC connection that I have set up to automatically pull those values.  The problem is that the current metadata is set to multi-select.  So, I have a file that is in the library and it can be used for multiple clients - clients is a column in my library and users can select many entries.  When I set up a column to pull BDC data, it only allows single entry.  Does anyone have any ideas?

DVWP connections with multi-select lookup columns

  
I have a question concerning the Data View Web Part using SharePoint Designer 2007.   I have two list (A and B). List A has a lookup column (called B-items) with multiple selections to items in List B(using the Title column from B).   I create a web part page and insert a data view of using List A. I create another data view with data from List B. Next, I make a Web Part Connection between the two data views with A passing B-items column as parameter to List B data view. I then create a filter on the List B data view with a comparison of List B’s Title column equal to the parameter of List A’s B-items value when a user selects an item from List A data view. The problem is nothing appears in List B’s data view.   When I try the reverse of the above scenario it works fine.     I understand that this is properly functionality, but is there a way to achieve my first scenario? If so, how can it be accomplished?   I have looked through the web for help and found the answer here http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointcustomization/thread/749b7477-f37f-4724-94b3-b6ace770e73a seems to be what I’m looking for. However, I am unsure how to implement his code into the web part page.   I am a worse than a novice with xsl so if anyone gives an example I would greatly appreciate step by step on what code is needed a

SQL Server 2008 Linked Server SELECT INTO issue

  
I have a SQL Server 2008 installation running on a clustered Windows Server 2008 R2. I am trying to execute a query on a remote SQL Server to create a table. In order to do so, I call a stored procedure on the remote SQL Server. The stored procedure's description is as follows: ------------------------------------- Create procedure [dbo].[USP_RemoteExec] @varSQL varchar(max) as declare @tempSql nvarchar(max); set @tempSql = CONVERT(nvarchar(max),@varSQL); exec sp_executesql @tempSql ------------------------------------- I pass the following command to the remote stored procedure as follows: exec [servername].[dbname].dbo.USP_RemoteExecute @varSQL='if object_id(''testdb.dbo.tmp_testEmpty3'') is not null drop table testdb.dbo.tmp_testEmpty3; create table testdb.dbo.tmp_testempty3(col1 int, col2 varchar(20));' go select * from [servername].testdb.dbo.tmp_testEmpty3 go This statement returns the following: --------------------------------- col1,col2 (0 row(s) affected) But, when I run the following statement: exec [servername].[dbname].dbo.USP_RemoteExecute @varSQL='if object_id(''testdb.dbo.tmp_testEmpty'') is not null drop table testdb.dbo.tmp_testEmpty; select * into testdb.dbo.tmp_testEmpty from (select top 10 mytab.[col1] as [col1] , mytab.[col2] as [col2] , mytab.[col3] as [col3] FROM testdb.dbo.mytab as [mytab] with (nolock)) as A' go select * from [

One report >> Multiple Linked Reports in different folders?

  
I love Linked Reports in SSRS because of my ability to change one report in one project and post changes to one location on my SSRS server and then have those changes take effect in my linked report.  Today however I was asked to make one of those reports which is already liniked elsewhere to be linked to two locations and I was dismayed to find out that there is a chance that its limited to one linked report for any source report. Can someone tell me this isn't so and show me a way around this?  I don't want to have to post my RDL to multiple locations unless its absolutely necessary. I'm using SQL Server 2008, SSRS2008, Standard Edition. Thanks, Keith

Linked Server using ASE OLE DB Provider and Select * into where datetime maps to SQL Server datetime

  
Hi, I'm currently using MSSQL Server 2008 x64 SP1 [Microsoft SQL Server Standard Edition (64-bit)], version 10.0.2531.0.  I'm using Sybase ASE 15.0.3 ESD#3, or 15.5 ESD#1, and doing a simple Select into query where my original table on ASE, pubs..sales with DDL: stor_id     char(4)     not null, ord_num  varchar(20) not null, date         datetime    not null I run this query with Linked Server, using ASE OLE DB Provider x64, 15.5.0.1016: select * into mssql_sales from openquery(ASE1550, 'select * from pubs2..sales') The table mssql_sales has the datetime datatype from ASE mapped to datetime2(7).

NULL label doesn't appear on drop down or multi-select parameter.

  
Hi, I am using SSRS 2005 SP3. I have the following query that I use for my parameter: SELECT 0 AS c1, 'NOT Specified' AS c2 UNION SELECT 1 AS c1, NULL AS c2 UNION SELECT 2 AS c1, 'Test 1' AS c2 UNION SELECT 3 AS c1, 'Test 2' AS c2 Let's call my parameter prm1. The type of prm1 is string and it has "Allow null value" and "Allow blank value" options ticked. C1 is the value field and C2 is the label field for prm1. When I preview the report, and I didn't see NULL in my drop down list,  but that record has been shown as 1 (which is the value). I am wondering if this is a normal behavior of SSRS? It's not a big deal. I can replace NULL with something else, but I am just curious. Cheers, Uzzie

ReportViewer 2008 multi-select parameter alignment

  
We are using SSRS 2008 SP1 & ReportViewer 2008 SP1. The multi-select parameter options are left aligned in the drop-down listbox on the Report Server but when run thru ASP.Net & reportViewer, they are aligned in the center of the drop-down list. This is very problematic because the width of the drop-down is also narrow compared to the text size of the fields. I tried wrapping the ReportViewer in a Div tag (<div style="vertical-align: left; text-align: left">), but still no joy.  Would appreciate any help thanks.

Multi select control does not work with Infopath. :(

  
I create new lookup column that allows multiple values.  The important part is the column is the Title(linked to item) so the item is shown as Hyperlink item to the actual item.  This works fine, but then I would like to fine tune my form with infopath.  When I open this form it complains about these columns, basically will not let me open the form without first deleting these lookup columns.  So I then try the other way I create a lookup column from infopath and this work fine, the only problem being is these items no longer so up as hyperlinks to the original items.  This is a major bumma, any one have any suggestions to get this working?

Multivalue parameters - Changing label if (Select All) is selected

  
I'm using SSRS 2005.  I have a report which has a multi value parameter.  When you click (Select All) the text in the parameter combobox shows all the names of the possible values.  Since this is my default it really looks tacky and hard to read. Is there a way I can have the text in the multi value parameter combobox say "ALL" or something else when (Select All) is checked?  

Report parameters bomb out using wildcards with multi value parameters

  
SQL Server 2008 Latest release I have a report that I have setup (using BIS Visual Studio 2008) for user required parameters (multi valued possible). I have tried adding the like value in the report parameter values in Visual Studio and it just does not like it, example -  LIKE ('A%'). If I enter a valid value without wildcards it works fine Example employee id # A001234. Anyone have any ideas as to a solution?   SELECT        DATAAREAID, TRANSDATE, JOURNALID, PRODID, EMPLID, HOURS, HOURPRICE FROM            Production_Direct_Labor_Hours WHERE        (DATAAREAID = @DATAAREAID) AND (HOURS > 0) AND (PRODID = @PRODID) AND (EMPLID IN (@EMPLID)) AND (TRANSDATE BETWEEN @STARTDATE AND                          @ENDDATE)

Multi Select Sorting help

  
I need help with a bit complex JavaScript. This is what I am trying to do: I have a database table with id and title. I am populating the multi select list with the values "id + title" (ex: 1234 Title1) What I need to do is sort the list based on the items selected. There is a sort button which when a user clicks after selecting his titles should push the selected items to the top of the list and sorted and the list that's not selected must also be sorted based on the title. For ex if I have these in the select list:my options will look like this <option value="122" id="001">122 Amazing Facts</option><option value="890" id="002">890 Famous Seven</option><option value="345" id="003">345 Niagara Falls</option>......<option value="100" id="007">100 Zimbabwe</option>122 Amazing Facts 890 Famous Seven 345 Niagara Falls 879 Spain Champions 865 Trinidad & Tobago 213 Victoria Falls100 Zimbabwe They are all sorted on the title (or the ID since I am populating them based on the titles). This will be the first pass when I populate them. Now the user selects 890 Famous Seven, 213 Victoria Falls, 100 Zimbabwe and hits the sort button. The result should look like this 890 Famous Seven 213 Victoria Falls 100 Zimbabwe 122 Amazing Facts 345 Niagara Fa

Multi Value Parameters in SSRS 2005

  
Hi Guys, I am having a parameter 'Employee' and it is multi valued. This parameter gets values from Dataset 'Emp_Data'. It has the follwing query: Select Employee_Code, Employee_Name from Employee_Table. I tried to do this but didnt get What I exactly want. What I have done is : IN the Report Prameters tab, went to Default Values section and selected From Query option and given the dataset name as 'Emp_Data' and Value Field as Employee_Code. Now When I view it in the Preview tab. I am getting as this in the Parameter Employee text box: Employee - James, Ross, Steve, Mark, Kevin........ For some reason, the client did not like this and they wants to see default as ALL Employees (instead of all those names displayed in the text box). So Is there a way to make it as ALL Employees as default (when all employees are selected). Note : I tried in this method also : Select 'ALL' as Employee_Code, 'All Employees' as Employee_Name                                         Union
