Importing Access 2010 tables to SQL Server 2008 R2

I'm trying to import a series of Access 2010 tables to Sql Server 2008 R2.  The Access import drivers are for *.mdb (which if I recall was the file extension for Access when I was a kid, and don't recognize the .accdb file extention).  Similarly, the Excel driver is for Excel 2003.  Isn't there a driver and method to import directly to SQL 2008 from Access 2010? SQL is installed on my server, but Access is not installed on the server.  When I copy the file onto the server and try and open it directly into SQL, I get a 'no editor installed' error. I can't get the 'upsize' wizard to work becuase it won't open the connection to SQL, even though I enter the userid and password of the SQL DB owner.  I get the following error: ===================================================== Connection failed: ============================================================= I have to say I'm stumped.  The rest of the Office 2010 suite works really well together - perhaps I'm missing something very simple? Thanks!     I guess I could export my tables as Excel 2003 and then import them using Integration Services, or install SQL Express on my laptop and 'upsize' to that instance, but SQL State: ‘0100’ SQL Server Error: 11004 [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Dirver][TCP/IP Sockets]ConnectionOpen (Connect()).

SSRS 2008 - repeating a non column header column on every page

Hi - I am working on my first SSRS report and I have mostly all of it down except one issue. Per requirements, I need to display a column that is a non header column to repeat on every page while printing and or when I save the generated report in SSRS as a PDF file. I have seen some previous blog from 2007 where RepeatWith property is recommended to be set to the same name of the Tablix in which the column(s) are embeded, tried that but it is not working. Can any one help me on this or guide me how to resolve this? Thanks, Manny

View Temporary Tables While Debugging in SQL 2008

How can I view temporary tables while debugging in SQL 2008? Note: I do not want to add a SELECT statement everywhere I need to see the contents of the temporary table. I'm hoping there is another way...like can it be done in the command window somehow, etc?

SSRS 2008 R2 Sparklines are only partially visible when rendered in IE7, IE8 and Firefox 3.6

I'm troubleshooting a sparkline/chart rendering issue on the report server and am wondering if anybody has had any similar issue. The sparkline is rendering with a larger apparent size than the column cell where it is located so only a portion of the chart is visible. Charts appeared correctly in BIDS preview but were rendered incorrectly when accessed from the report server in IE7,IE8 and FF3.6 on one machine and from IE8 on another machine. Report rendered correctly when accessed from the report server via IE6 on all machines tested. It rendered correctly when exported to excel or pdf. I submitted a bug report.  It has examples and screenshots. https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/588778/ssrs-2008-r2-sparklines-are-only-partially-visible-when-rendered-in-ie7-ie8-and-firefox-3-6#details Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

How do you freeze the tablix header row in an Excel export file in SSRS 2008?

So this is totally killing me. I've found out how to make a tablix header row repeat on each page of a PDF export file in SSRS 2008 (which I won't even get started on because all I can say is that 2005 is way better), but I cannot figure out how to make a simple header row of a tablix freeze in an Excel export file.  The tablix is right at the top of the body and spans the entire width of the design area.  How in the world do you get it to freeze in the Excel export file?

CSS float tables only allowing row of tables start at table header

Hi,I have a page of tables which take in information from the user. I am trying to get the tables to float to the right so I have two rows of tables. But for some reason. Each row of tables starts together. So there is a gap on one of the sides before the next table. Any help would be really appreciated  The CSS is .tableColumnFormat{    padding-top: 3px;    padding-bottom:3px;        width: 180px;    }.labelFormat{    float: left;    padding-left: 5px;    text-align: right;    font-size: medium;    width:180px;    }.tableFormat{        background-color:White;    width: 450px;    border:solid 1.5px #38a7db;        float: left;    margin-bottom:10px;    margin-left:10px;    margin-right:10px;}.tableColumnFormat2{    float:left;        padding-left:5px;    }.headerFormat{    text-align: left;    padding-left: 10px;    color:White;    background-image:url('App_Themes/MasterTheme/Images/table_header_background3.gif');    }

Reporting Services 2008 - Repeating Headers when Headers are in a rectangle in header cell

Hello,I had the same problem as others where the tablix header will not repeat on multiple pages of the report.  I followed the instructions here http://blogs.msdn.com/robertbruckner/archive/2008/10/13/Repeat-Header-And-Visible-Fixed-Header-Table.aspx and it did not solve the problem.  After trying several scenarios, I found that it was not repeating because I have each header value in a rectangle which spans one column, rather than having each header value in it's own tablix column.For instance, if we have fields CompanyID and CompanyName on the report, the repeating headers work if I have them in separate columns like this:                              Tablix Column 1  |  Tablix Column 2Tablix Header row    Company ID        |  CompanyNameTablix Detail row      [CompanyID]      |  [CompanyName]It DOES NOT work when it is designed like this:                             Tablix Column 1Tablix Header Row   Company ID    Company Name  (tw

SQL Management Studio 2008, does not display tables with specific permissions


Prev Reference Question: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqltools/thread/a6166b82-1e1a-4771-952d-a7b54e0b0f23?prof=required

I see the same problem with SQL 2008 Management Studio. I have different schema defined in my database, all the schema permissions work just fine in SQL 2005 but when viewed from SQL 2008. I cannot see tables for which i have given inidividual permissions. I have given SELECT permissions for those tables.

for example.

schema: dbo, schema1, schema2 ....

user: user1 (schema1 owner), user2 (schema2 owner), user3 ...

now i have given SELECT on schema1.table1 to user2

this works fine and i m able to see the schema1.table1 when login as user2 in SQL2005. I have tried your solution for giving "View Definition" permission as well. But this doesnt work in my case.

Seems to be some default permission settings with SQL 2008 ??

Any help/Suggestion will be appreciated

Tablix header not repeating in SSRS 2008



I have a tablix header which is not repeating on each page. I have tried all the suggestions given for this issue in the forum but no luck.

for e.g: The repeat header rows in Tablix properties

Steps in Advanced Mode "RepeatonPage" etc.

I have a tablix with headers and two groups. The tablix structure is as below

Zone  Product Client Amount.

Here Zone is Parent group of product group. For both these groups i have tried the advanced mode suggestions. "Zone" Visibility is hidden in the report.


Thank you for your assistance.



Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 2008 does not list all tables in database

When logging into SSMS 2008 to a SQL2008 database when I expand the tables in a database I only see a few tables listed.  I can login to the same instance with SSMS 2005 and all of the tables are there.  Is there a reason why this is this way?

I can do a select * from in a query window for any of the tables in the database via SSMS 2008 as well and it work fine.  It just does not display the tables.

SSRS 2008 - Drilldown - Grouping collapse/expand /title/header



I have been able to have a report with Group / Group count and Details.

The issue I have are:

1. When I collapse the drilldown to get only the Group and Group countit just collapse per page not the full report...I would like to have all Group / Group count on 1 or two pages and then epand as needed...

2. The title and column headers appear only on the first page... how to get it on all pages?

What is the "Linked Report" doing? Is it another kind of Drill Down..?

I need to have my summary report per OS for example shows only the OS Name then Count and if I click to expand I will have the servers in this group... but it seems working reverse way, I mean you have the details and if you collaspe you have the summary but this seems limited per page...

ASP Tables and Visual Studio 2008


I am working on a project that I have inherited that was built in VS 2008 using C# . Originally done as a Wizard it is now being changed to a single page form. When I first started I was able to drag and drop the textboxes and other elements around but then I had to change the tables from HTML to ASP so I could create them dynamically. After doing so I cannot click on anything inside the table when working in VS. Is this normal functionality? I'm relatively new to VS, ASP and C#

Header Displayed For Hidden Tablix in SSRS 2008


I have inheritted a report which was written in SSRS 2005 and I am trying to migrate to SSRS 2008. It contains 2 overlapping tables - with different contents. Depending on a parameter selection either 1 or other of the tables is displayed. This is controlled via an expression in the visibility property of each table.

The display/no display of the tables works fine - but in 2008 an extra page with a header and footer is displayed for the 'invisible' table resulting in an unwanted page. Is there a way to avoid this and why doesn't it work in the same way 2005?
