Generate report in Excel format with formulas

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server


I have a report with simple calculations (adds some fields). The report is requested in excel format via Reporting Services WebService.

I would like to have the generated excel file to have the formulas, not just the results. I tried to put the formula text in report definition, but it does't work, it appears in excel as text, not as formula.

How can I do this?

Trouble importing strange column format report from Excel 2007 to SQL 08

Hi, I'm not sure whether this belongs in this section or the SSIS one so hopefully I've got it right!  Hoping someone will be able to help with a problem I'm having importing a report with header and detail rows from our antiquated POS system into SQL 2008 tables.  The reports export in Excel 2007 format and for each header row there can be one or more detail rows starting from column B.  As such I've tried several things such as openrowset, an Access 12.0 OLE DB source in SSIS and even COM automation of Excel to try and write a conditional split which will hold the header details in variables then write them to rows alongside the detail rows.  I've pasted a small sample of the data here as I wasn't able to attach it: 01/07/2010 @ 11:18 Page: 1 RECEIVING: Voucher Journal Sort: VC|Str|Vou Date|Vou #|Document SID Filter: Voucher Date: 01/06/2010@12:00a..30/06/2010@11:59p Include Item detail: DCS|Item#|Desc1|Attr|Material|Size|Qty VC Str Vou Date Vou # Qty ABC 001 15/06/2010 12345 38 E NN 66 200148 XXXXXXXX RED SHAD E NN 66 200149 YYYYYYYYY BLACK GO E PP 60 200154 ZZZZZZZZZ BLACK CDE 002 16/06/2010 13839 8 F SA 35 217500 XXXXXXXX Natural F SA FL 218674 YYYYYYYYY Chalk F SA WE 221462 ZZZZZZZZZ White FGH 001 21/06/2010 13905 3 F SH 85 126260 XXXXXXXX Navy IJK 001 23/06/2010 13914 3 E AA 61 250005 YYYYYY

VS2008 BIDS Report export to Excel not grouping the same as VS2005

I have a report that I created in VS2005 BIDS and got it to export to Excel to group/subtotal the same way it does in the BIDS report window.  Now I have copied the .rdl files to a VS2008 project, open it in VS2008 BIDS, made NO changes to the report format and the exported Excel file is combining what should be the 2nd and 3rd groups into 1 group.  In the BIDS window, the grouping is working correctly.  Does anyone have any ideas what has changed between 2005 & 2008 that may cause this problem?  Thanks in advance.

Displaying Image stored in rtf format in access database displaying it on crystal report

Hello, I'm working on a C# project combined with "Crystal Reports 10". When a user inserts something in a "TextField" in my C#-Program, it's saved  as RTF-code (Bolt,Pictures,Underlined,....) to a database.. So if they  reopen it in my "C#"-program they're able to see what they've entered  including their pictures .... But when I created a "Crystal Report"-file and combined it with the same  database used in my "C#"-program, it only show the formatted text and not  the pictures or images... Is there a way to show the "Picture" or "Image" they've inserted in RTF-code  ??? When I copy the code from the database in a simple Text-File and rename  it too "Test.rtf", it wil open correctly in word (with picture and  everything else)... So I hope there is a way to get the picture, Cz it's rather important  they've got a picture of the product they wanna print ...
