Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I'm trying to add the date to the file name inside the expression builder. 

So I have a variable type string with the property EvaluteAsExpression to true

Inside the expression builder I have...this is from Rafael Salas page...thanks Rafael....

@[User::FileArchivePath] +"\\"+ SUBSTRING( @[User::FileName] , 1 , FINDSTRING( @[User::FileName],".",1) - 1 ) + "-" + (DT_STR, 50, 1252) (DT_DBDATE)GETDATE() + SUBSTRING( @[User::FileName] , FINDSTRING( @[User::FileName],".",1) , LEN( @[User::FileName] ) )

this gives me this out come

but I want to have the date in the format of mm-dd-yyyy

I tried to use the convert function like in SQL but expresion doesn't like it....Convert(varchar(15),getdate(), 110)...

So is it the ONLY way to format the dates in expression builder is to build it part by part like

@[User::FileArchivePath] +"\\"+ SUBSTRING( @[User::FileName] , 1 , FINDSTRING( @[User::FileName],".",1) - 1 ) + "-" + (DT_STR, 2, 1252) Month( @[System::StartTime] )+ (DT_STR, 2, 1252) Day( @[System::StartTime] ) + (DT_STR, 4, 1252) Year( @[System::StartTime] )+ SUBSTRING( @[User::FileName] , FINDSTRING( @[User::FileName],".",1) , LEN( @[User::FileName] ) )

but this give date l

Hanselminutes Podcast 227 - Inside Expression SuperPreview with developer Mike Calvo

Scott talks to Mike Calvo, a Microsoft Lead Developer based out of Minnesota (!) about Expression SuperPreview. SuperPreview helps developers and designers with cross-browser CSS and HTML issues. How'd they build it and with what? What's inside? How does the cloud fit in and how do they support Safari? I played with SuperPreview a bit last year, but started looking at it again last month when I noticed that version 4 has introduced support for Safari on Mac via a Cloud-based Remote Service. I fired up Expression SuperPreview 4, and saw this: Then I signed up: Which enabled Mac Safari for this initial beta. I assume they'll add a pile of other browsers. If I don't see immediate browser support for ALynx, the Amiga port of Unix...(read more)

Regular Expression to Match


Here is the kind of text I want to match via a regular Expression

The id="dgSchedule" is always present in the TAG but its location may differ

The table is span over multiple line/contains white spaces/tabs...

I have the regular expression to match the start and end tag respectively over a single line

\<table .*\>


The problem is to match the whole table span over multiple lines

<table cellspacing="0" rules="all" border="1" id="dgSchedule" style="border-style:None;height:100%;width:100%;border-collapse:collapse;">
	<tr class="blackbar" align="center" style="background-color:#7FB4DE;font-family:Verdana;font-weight:bold;height:20px;">
		<td>From Place</td><td>To Place</td><td>Time</td><td>Bus Type</td>

	</tr><tr style="background-color:#DEECF5;">
	</tr><tr style="background-color:#EFF5FA;">
	</tr><tr style="background-color:#DEECF5;">


asp expression bound to user control parameter?


How can I get pass the DataKey of a GridView to a usercontol, preferably without code behind.

Why doesn't this work:

<ucOrderDetails:AJAX_OrderDetail ID="od1" runat="server" OrderNumber='<%# GridView1.SelectedValue.ToString() %>'  />

GridView1 is just a list of orders with a DataKey of OrderNumber.

od1 is not inside of a databout control, does it need to be?

Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression

Good Day Gurus!

I have a Excel user application which has a user form (named 'Registo') that displays criteria and an image that has been entered in it's corresponding spreadsheet. This works the way it should.  There's also the ability to search the spreadsheet via a form (by clicking 'Pesquisar' button) this opens a search form. However, I having a bit of a problem with it. When I try to search for something it basically doesn't do anything at all. It just sits there. So I tried to debug it and I think I'm having a problem with either the JET db engine or somethign with teh query or maybe I don't have the correct reference.

I 'borrowed' this Excel application from another forum because it's exactly what I'm looking for! However, I suck at vb.

So I was hoping somebody could take a look at the code and see if I'm missing something?  I'm kinda' desparate to get this working because I'm been trying to figure it out for days and I'm running out of time.  Cry

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
