Problems printing reports

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Hi community,

we are currently displaying Reporting Services 2005 Reports from an ASP .NET application using Report Viewer. We are experiencing a problem when printing the reports. Some clients can print reports properly, but others receive a message "Unable to load print control". Our potential clients are XPs, Windows Vista and Windows 7. Do you know what could be the reason of this?

Thanks in advance

Problems connecting stored procedure to Crystal Reports


I am working on updating a reporting system that uses Crystal Reports.  All of the 250+ reports were created in CR 8 and I have been opening up the old files in Visual Studio 2005 and updating the database location.  All I have had to do with all connections to views and even a couple of stored procedures is create a new connection to the database and then update the old report's datasource location.  The reason I need to update the location is so that the .NET application will use the correct driver.  Everything has worked fine up until I got to one stored procedure.  The old version of the report works perfectly with the stored procedure, but when I try to run the report using VS 2005 I keep getting errors.

First I connected to the database using the Oracle OLE DB provider, then updated the location of the stored procedure in the report.  It then prompts me for the two parameter values for the stored procedure, both of which I keep as NULL so that the report parameters will be passed to the procedure.  Then I get the following error:

Query Engine Error: 'ADO Error Code: 0x
Source: OraOLEDB
Description: ORA-06550: line 1, column 7:
PLS-00306: wrong number or types of arguments in call to 'STORED_PROCEDURE'
ORA-06550: line 1, column 7:
PL/SQL: Statement ignored'

Need RSClientPrint.dll help for printing from both SQL 2005 & 2008 RS Reports

We recently upgraded our sharepoint environment to SQL 2008 and migrated SQL Reporting Services from 2005 to SSRS 2008. I worked with our Citrix admin to roll out the RSClientPrint.cab files to all of our 90+ Citrix servers so that the SQL reports could be printed. I tested printing 2008 reports from citrix servers with success, but now am having issues printing reports on other SQL 2005 RS instances. Is the SSRS 2008 RSClientPrint.dll not backwards compatible with SSRS 2005? Is there any way around this?

Printing Landscape oriented reports with SSRS 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2




I am having issues when I print reports with SSRS 2008. We have an web application that uses the Report Viewer control to preview our Reports in a popup window. The preview page shows the report in the correct orientation and so does any report that has been exported to PDF or Excel file.

The problem arises when we print the report. For some reason any report set to landscape is still being printed in Portrait orientation. The reports have their heights and width properly set, i.e., for portrait reports we have the layout set to 8.5in x 11in and for landscape reports we have the layout set to 11in x 8.5in.

I have done some research and I did not get a conclusive answer, it seems that this happens because of a bug or maybe because how my ReportViewer object in the aspx page is being set.

I would deeply appreciate any extra info you guys can provide.

Bluetooth Printing Guide using Windows Mobile Pocket Pc

FieldSoftware Products printing products use the Bluetooth "Serial Port Profile" (SPP). Unfortunately, there is no standard method to find your Bluetooth printer and begin printing... each device contains a Bluetooth stack/driver that determines the steps. There are two main stacks currently available... one from Microsoft and one from WIDCOMM/Broadcom. Below are step-by-step instructions for printing with the Microsoft and WIDCOMM stacks. Note that these may change for different versions of the Bluetooth stacks or for different manufacturers. Consult the documentation for your device for specific details on your device.

Problems with Forms Authentication in DD 4 site


Hello,  I am seeing a strange problem with Forms Authentication in my DD site.   A user logs into and can view/edit/delete data all day, but when they execute a Custom Filter against data (for example , a control DynamicData/Filters/CustomerLastNameSearch.ascx ) then the site auth fails, and redirects to the log in screen.

in web.config I have

     <authentication mode="Forms">
            <forms name=".Star" loginUrl="~/Login.aspx" protection="All" defaultUrl="~/Default.aspx" path="/" timeout="43200" cookieless="UseCookies" />     

Offhand, I am thinking two things : that DynamicData/Filters path requires some special handling for some reason, or the control extension ascx is causing auth to get confused.   Has anyone else experienced this or have any suggestions?  Thanks!
