Unfortunatly, the rendering is done un ANSI and I'm not able to change this.... I want to process it in unicode to have all FONTs embbed into the PDF file...

Different number of data in Report after using Render method.

Hello All, I have CRM4 report that i execute from outside the CRM system, using the ReportExecutionService2005.asmx web service, i get the report exported directly by calling the Render method of the webservice, but when i compare the data of the Report outside the CRM is less then the data in the report executed from within CRM system. I have tested the same report with same user in CRM and outside CRM but data is different. can someone guide me what is going wrong in the Render method.BharatKumar Bambhaniya Software Developer.

How to re-render report on parameter change?

I have a drill-down report with several levels. I added a parameter to allow me to collapse/expand all so I don't have to go through all the levels to open individually. This works but I have to set the collapse state on the param, then I have to click View Report button. I haven't found a way to tell report to re-render when a certain parameter changes so I don't have to click the view report button. Is it not possible?   Thanks!--ACG

Using ReportViewer.LocalReport.Render() method to export single report multiple times


I'm using the ReportViewer control on my .aspx page which displays a single report based on various user parameter selections.  Dropdown2 is dependent on the DropDown1 selection (i.e. the user selects Unit A from DropDown1 and that results in 10 selections under Dropdown2, or the user selects Unit B from DropDown1 and that results in 15 selections under DropDown2, and so on).  The user makes the selections, clicks the "Run Report" button, and the report displays as expected.  The user then can export to Excel or PDF

I've received a request to allow users to run the report for all possible selections and export to their desired format rather than having to run the report for each separate DropDown1 and DropDown2 selection.  So in other words, they don't even want to see the report on the screen, they just want to be able to click a button that runs the report for all possible parameter selections and export it to a single Excel or PDF document.

Does anyone have thoughts on how to best approach this?  Or is it even possible?  I know how to render a single report with parameters directly to PDF or Excel using the ReportViewer.LocalReport.Render() method, but I don't know how to render the same report multiple times to a single destination.

SSRS Render Timeout when the report has got lots of data (130 MB)



My subscriptions works fine for smaller reports but when i try to render a big report using a subscription it errors. i think its timing out . thread aborted message.

If i try to debug nothing happens after this line of code "RenderedOutputFile[] renderedOutputFiles = notification.Report.Render("PDF", null);"

This line of code is from my own Delivery Extension.

Please suggest me.



Alternating row background for first column of a report


is there a way to make the first column of a report use the an alternating background color? 

I have the background color set for the entire row however it does not work for the first column if the color is set to an expression.  If I just set it to a color i.e. red it works just fine. If I insert a dummy column to the left it works just fine (but the dummy column does not work, presumably because it is first??).

In the file below only the textbox for part number does not show an alternating background.  All others work correctly.

Printing crystal report from webservice



I am trying to print crystal repot directly from a C# application, which is calling webservice. I am able to display report in crystalreportviewer by passing the webservice call to datasource. However, is there anyway, I can print directly without showing the report?

Alternatively, I was trying return ReportDocument object from webservice, which would solve my problem, but I was unable to return the ReportDocument because of serialization issue. Is it even possible? Thank you
