Report Builder 3.0 - Map point layer is not applying filter on a dataset

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


I have a Report Builder 3.0 report which includes a Map object and a shared dataset (SQL against a SQL 2008 R2 database).

The Map contains a point layer which is populated by a Shared dataset in my report.  I've added some filters to this dataset (on text fields) but the Map continues to show all records and doesn't apply the filter.

I've tried the following but none work:

- Converting the Shared dataset to an embedded dataset

- Only filtering one column

- Combination of setting filters from hardcoded values and parameterised values

The Map never picks up the filter.  If I display the records from the shared dataset on a table then the filter is applied to the tabular results so I know the filter is being applied in at least one place.

I do have a workaround which is to add parameters to the SQL in the shared dataset.  Then pass parameters from my Map report to the shared dataset.  This guarantees that the parameters will be applied.  However, I would still like our users to be able to use filters for the Map.

Report Builder 3 - how to display paths that exceed a hemisphere in a map layer



Does anyone have any novel workarounds for displaying geospatial path/line data in a report that exceeds a hemisphere in size. I would like to display path data for vehicles that traverse the globe in a geography map, i.e. satellite, plane or ship paths. One idea is to break the line path into smaller segments based on a time box such as an hour/week or perhaps there's a way to present a point map layer in Report Builder as a connected line? 

Any ideas/suggestions welcome.

Thanks in advance

SSRS - Report Builder - Wildcard usage in a Filter?


I am trying to use a wildcard in a Filter condition within a SSRS - Report Builder report. 


Are wildcards of anytime in fact allowed in this tool?  I get errors when I try to use SQL-like wildcards such as '%'.  I've also been unable to find any mention of "wildcards" in HELP.


Please help as soon as possible.  THANKS!

Report Builder Filter shows Field as Date Type =Text instead of Date


My Data was created by retrieving ODBC data - using PowerPivot for Excel 2010, and has Birthdate defined as a Data Type = "Date".  This was uploaded to SharePoint, and a New Dataset was created to point at it.

I'm using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Report Builder 3.0.  I tried to filter this data on Birthdate, but when I go into the Filter, and specify the field that was defined as DataType = "Date" in PowerPivot - Report Builder changes the type to "Text", and gray's out the field so that I can't change it to "Date".

If I create an Expression as Cdate(Birthdate.Value), it lets me change the Data Type to "Date", and works appropriately, but we don't want to have to do this with every date field.

Why doesn't Report Builder see this field as a Date ? 

Refresh of a Report Builder Dataset does NOT show newly added field

I'm working with Report Builder 2.0 (we don't plan on getting SQL 2008 R2 - so NO 3.0 for us!) and have found that if I have an existing report using an existing stored procedure (it has 4 existing parameters) and I add a new field to the stored procedure it will not refresh the data set.  I have gone to the DataSet properties and executed the query(SPROC) where it does show the new field (so I know the sproc will execute), but when I click OK and hit Refresh Fields it stops responding.  I also tried the same steps without the Refresh Fields and still stops responding.  I also tried to add the field name and it errored out as invalid.

The only work around I've found is to

Include a Crystal Report in .NET Web Service for Dynamic In-Memory-Only DataSet



I would like to use Crystal Reports in a .NET web service.  Ultimately I would like to convert my report document to a PDF and then return the PDF as a byte array. 

My .NET DataSet is generated dynamically at run-time.  It consists of four related tables.  Since my DataSet does not have a physical datasource, I created an XML Schema file.  I then added the XML Schema file to the web service project with Add Existing Item. 

A solution for working with a dynamic in-memory DataSet exists for ASP.NET web sites and client-based forms.  I tried to use this method as it is published.  When that didn't work I tried creating the report and XML Schema directly in the web service project, but that also didn't work.


The problem is apparent when you try to set the datasource.......the code bombs on the call to SetDataSource(DataSet) with the message
ex = {"The data source object is invalid."}

Crystal Reports would save me a lot

SSRS 2008 R2 and sharepoint 2007 report builder problems


I upgraded our enterprise sql server 2008 to sql server 2008 r2 last weekend.  Along with this i installed the report builder 3.0 on the servers as well and the updated ssrs add in for sharepoint.  The upgrade went fine, no errors that i could find.  The problem is now when i go to a library that has the report builder content type enabled and click report builder report under new it does not load report builder 3.0.

I updated the custom report builder url in central administration from /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_2_0_0_0.application to /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_3_0_0_0.application

however when i do click the new report builder report it kicks me over to http://company.com/ReportServer_MossEnt  which itemizes out each individual sharepoint site in the farm.

Is the integration of ssrs 2008 r2, sharepoint 2007 and report builder 3.0 work?  did i install the wrong version of the report builder add in?  The above is the only problem i am having now.

all servers are server 2008, 64 bit and moss 2007 enterprise with sp2 & april 2010 cu

Report Builder in sharepoint is not working.



We are using below Topology in production
Topology is 3 servers:
Sever1: Sharepoint Form (wss3.0 no MOSS)
Sever2: Sql server 2008
Server3: Reporting Services 2008
Operating system on 3 servers: Windows server 2008.
Authentication mode: Form based authentication.

 SSRS reports are working success fully in SharePoint using above topology, The issue is through SharePoint library when i am trying to access report builder reports the client is installing, after enter the credentials it is not connecting to server and am getting the following error "Unable to connecting server at 'http://servername/Reports/Forms/AllItems.aspx'  please use different url

The above issue on production only.

But in local development box there is no problem (in my development box SharePoint t, database (sql) and reporting service sits on my box only)

Thanks for your he

Report Builder Report manage data sources - relink programmatically

As part of a site definition solution several report builder report rdl files are uploaded to a report folder.  After a site is created with the defintion, the reports must be manually re-linked to the data source through the UI context menu ("Manage Data Sources").  I have been trying to figure out how to do the re-linking programmatically without luck.  Any ideas? ( Reporting Services is configured as integrated with sharepoint)

Iterate through rows of dataset in report's custom code

Hello, How can I iterate through the rows of a dataset in the custom code? I have a report containing a dataset. I pass the dataset as a parameter to the custom code function. But what then? Where is a reference about the available members etc.? Here is my dummy sample code so far: Public Function ShowParameterValues(ByVal ds as DataSet) as object() Dim codes() As Object Array.Resize(codes,dc.???.Count) codes(0)=ds??(field???)(row??) return codes End Function As the task I want to accomplish is very simple, I want to keep it in the custom code instead of writing any custom assemblies etc.   Thank you!

Report Builder 3.0 'backward' compatibility??

I've been asked to deploy Report Builder -- a new deployment, it's never been deployed before. Can RB 3.0 create reports against all versions of SQL Server -- 2005, 2008, and 2008 R2?? I understand that they might not be backward-compatible with earlier versions of Report Builder. Can Report Builder 3.0-created reports be used and seen within WSS 3.0 running on SQL 2008?? -- what would be necessary to make this happen?? The present reporting server files installed to the Citrix servers and SharePoint server are SQL 2008 Reporting Services files (10.x), I imagine installing Report Builder 3.0 would be compatible??
