SSRS 2005 Standard - Subscription to email distribution list?

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


    I am delivering SSRS 2005 reports via email subscription. I would like to utilize distribution lists. However, we do not have an exchange server. Is there a way to create distribution lists on the server that can then be accessed through SSRS Standard?

Is Conditional Subscription possible in SSRS 2005?


Hi Guys,

Is there a way to set up a subscription that will send e-mails based on the contents of a report? For example, I want to schedule a daily subscription that will only send an e-mail if the report contains data, otherwise it will do nothing for that day. i.e If the report has more than one row, it should send the mail otherwise it should not send the mail.....

Is it possible in SSRS 2005 or is there any other way to do it???


SSRS integrated mode email subscription to AD dist group

I have MOSS 2007 running SQL 2008 SSRS integrated mode and have created some reports and report subscriptions. Everything is working great. Now I want to use an Active Directory Distribution Group as a recipient for a report subscription - does not work, however the "last results" show no error. Try again using Dist Group in TO: field but adding regular email in CC: field...only email in CC field receive report, again all successful. Does SSRS integrated mode support AD distribution groups? if so is there any special setup required? Thanks LmmMmmm...yummy...

Multivalued parameter & Data driven subscription for SSRS 2005

I need to create data driven subscription for our reports. Most our reports have multi valued parameters (7-12 parameters with at least 4-5 with multiple values)and need to be send to a users between the range of 25-200. So standard subscription is really not a choice.I have gone through most of the threads before. Question 1:Does any one have a solution for the SSRS 2005 regarding passing mutiple values for a parameter for the Data subscription table. If yes, could you please share the information. Question 2:I found some solutions using the SOAP API. Can any one explain that in detail- how we can do it ?Reference:http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sqlreportingservices/thread/8ab615b4-1373-4258-bf49-c2843cfea8e9/http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=516735&SiteID=1 Question 3:Here is the other solution I found in one of the postsApparently passing in values like {A, B, C} only works when you configure the parameter values not to come from a dataset so that SSRS doesnt check for ValidValues.Reference: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sqlreportingservices/thread/b2c50aea-2032-4025-a155-306c00fcb856/Any commends about this solution?Thanks

How to get sum of a column from sharepoint list into SSRS(2005)

Hi, I have a about 100 columns created for survey questions. I need to get the sum of each column into SSRS. Can it be done in dataset instead of adding the aggregate expression in the footer of ssrs table. Some research that I have done so far.......Under the sharepoint list there is an option for Total for each columns. I can select the sum option and it appears in the list, but how can I access this sum in SSRS.

SSRS 2005 - Failure sending mail in e-mail subscription



I added a new TimedSubscription to a report.  However when the report ran, it hit an error.  The Status text was as follows.

Failure sending mail: The permissions granted to user 'domain\user1' are insufficient for performing this operation.

(assuming domain\user1 was my account)

I have the Content Manager role to the report and its folder.  I could run the report interactively with no issues.  This particular report does not require any parameters.

The odd thing was this only happened when I selected "Include Report".  If I selected only "Include Link" it would be fine.

To troubleshoot, I changed my role to System Administrator in Report Manager and re-tried.  The same result was observed.  However after I added my user account, domain\user1, to the local Administrators group, the problem went away!

What rights (in SSRS, local server, folder, etc) does a user need to have in order for the e-mail subscription with file inclusion to work?

The systems involved are as follows.

Windows Server 2003 (SP2)
Microsoft SQL Server Standard Edition, 9.00.4053.00



Best regards,


Reporting Services account for a data-driven subscription - SSRS 2005



I need to create a data-driven subscription that delivers a report to a shared folder. The Reporting Server service execution account is the LOCAL SYSTEM and so the subscription finishes with error. If the execution account is my Window login, the report are saved correctly in the shared folder. Is it possible to specify LOCAL SYSTEM as the execution account for the Reporting Server service in order to implement a subscription or not? Can this execution account to be different respect to the user name to specify in the data-driven subscription?

Many thanks for your suggest.

How to use a drop down list to edit in the standard Edit.aspx with DD?


Hey All,

I'm brand new to Dynamic Data and to ASP.NET.  I've been able to fumble around and get the calendar extender up and running and a few other customization options implemented, but I can't seem to get this drop down list to work - even after reading tons of online info.  The good news is that my web page/application is VERY simple, so hopefully you guys can help me out.  I'm working in VB btw.

I have a list of road projects submitted to me by local governments.  One of the fields is SponsoringAgency, which has a limited number of possible entries (the names of member governments).  Thus, when they submit a new project, or edit an existing one, I want to limit the input into the field "SponsoringAgency." I'm trying to use a dropdownlist because I'm familiar with it from Access, but it may not be the best approach.  Imagine you just setup a brand new, standard DD website, how would you get this to work?

Methods tried and failed (probably because I don't understand them fully):

UIHint - The closest I can get with this is an error saying that since SponsoringAgency isn't a Foreign Key, I'm out of luck.

Creating a SponsoringAgency Table - In my data layer, I created a second table with a list of government names.  I then tried se

SSRS 2005 "Mixed" Authentication Mode


I have a web application where users can authenticate using either SiteMinder or Windows domain accounts.  This is actually configured as two separate virtual directories within IIS 6.  Both applications need to use the same instance of SSRS.  Is it possible to configure the SSRS web application so that if a user is authenticated by SiteMinder it impersonates a Windows account, but if they are already Windows-authenticated that account is used instead?

Trying to send email using Sharepoint Designer 2007 workflow and email enabled list


I have a a list that recieves email. I have few fields that shows me the originator: "E-Mail From" and "E-Mail Sender".

I am trying to create a workflow that will generate an auto reply to the originator but the SPD fails to recognize the email address in these two fields. It's either truncating part of it or uses the html ( href=mailto:Demo@DemoSomething.com) in the To field.

Thank you,
