How does paging work with a matrix report?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

(SSRS 2005)

I have a report that I've set up with an IntreactiveSizze and  PageSize of 11in,8.5in with margines of 0.25in..  The matrix appears to take up less than 11" on the screen but when I go to prive layout I am getting a blank page for every page that has data on it.  Something is being pushed out to the right but I can't find out what.  The main report is calling a subreport where the matrix resides.

This is why I generally use tables as they are much easier to control. Is there any way to control this with a Matrix?

I can't get my search paging webpart to work

I created a page and put a core results web part on it.  I changed the url to myurl?k=pdf (to show a bunch of pdfs).  This works well.  I customized my xslt to show the columns that I want.   I added a paging webpart and it doesn't seem to work.  I added a refinement panel, and that does work.  Both are set to user query.  I changed both "Maximum page links before current" and "Maximum page links after current" to 2 so I would definitely see paging.

Snapshot report with matrix sometimes does not display data ... rerun report and it does

Hi All, I am having a strange problem with a snapshot report that is scheduled through Report Manager and runs once a day at approximately 18:30 each evening. The report contains a column chart with a textual category, numeric data, and a date series. Above the chart, is a matrix containing the value of the last bar in each series, and the average value of all bars in the series.  Here's a screen capture of what the report looks like: http://img832.imageshack.us/img832/185/wipu.png The problem is that sometimes the matrix is missing.  The chart still displays properly and all the data is correct.  If I rerun the report manually, and save a new snapshot, the matrix re-appears. For the past 6 months this report has been running flawlessly.  In the past 3 weeks, the problem has occurred twice.  I don't know why. Why would the matrix disappear?  What is causing this, and how can I fix it?  Any ideas? I'm using SSRS 2008. Thanks in advance for any insights. Regards, --DanDJAnsc

SSRS 2008R2 - go back to parent report does not work sharepoint integrated mode

I'm currently using SharePoint Foundation 2010 with SQL Server 2008R2 with the SharePoint RS add-in. I have a report with a drilldown to another report.  I can drill down correctly to the other report.  But when I do the "go back to parent report" it will take me back to the parent report, but when I try to drilldown again to another report, I get the following error. "Message: Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerParserErrorException: The message received from the server could not be parsed. Common causes for this error are when the response is modified by calls to Response.Write(), response filters, HttpModules, or server trace is enabled. Details: Error parsing near ' <!DOCTYPE html PUB'. Line: 5 Char: 62099" When I run this report in VS 2008 or Report Builder 3, I have no problems drilling down and back and forth. I only have an issue when I deploy the report to SharePoint.  I have also accessed the RDL directly outside of a webpart page, but still get the same error. Wondering if anyone else is experiencing this issue?

Repeat Report Item with Data Region on Every Page - doesn't work

Hi All, The Repeat Report Item with Data Region on Every Page property does not work - or atleast not the way i would expect it to. My report contains a header which is the Report Name. In the report body - I have text box with the company name, pulled from a data set. Below the company name i have a line, followed by a text box displaying the selected parameters. When I run the report, the first page displays all information as expected. However, subsequent pages only display the report header (report name) with the table butted up against it. I have tried setting the Repeat Report Item with Data Region on Every Page to true (and the data region to my table) for the Company Name text box, the line, and the parameters text box. This has no affect i.e. page 2, page n... are not printing the three items. Any suggestions much appreciated. Thanks.  Clay

Creating Matrix report to show totals, need subreport to show details...

I've created a perfect matrix report using the nifty wizard and it's exactly what the client wants, but they would also like to see the detail for each row. I'm able to create subreports and pass parameters and all that jazz, but I'm having a hard time setting up a subreport for this matrix. It's pretty much this format                      MakeOfCar                      ModelOfCar LotLocation   Count of cars   This would return:                         Ford           Ford                        Mustang      F150 Location A:         5                0 Location B:         2                3    

Report filters do not work, ALL data is returned

Hello, I'm facing a weird problem with a Report Builder 1.0 report. The report has two filters: a Start Date and an End Date. I have selected the "prompt" property of these filters to use them as report parameters. When I run the report in Test, it runs just fine and shows correct data as per selected filters. When I copy the report to Production, it again runs fine. The problem begins if I try to make any changes to the report in Production. I open the report in RB 1.0 and add another column. When I now run the report, it returns ALL the records in the DB regardless of the Start Date and End Date specified. Strangely, this does not happen when I change the report in the test environment. Any ideas on why this could be happening will be very much appreciated! Thanks, Shivani

Report Model based on Analysis Services Cube doesn't work


Hi all,

I am working in BIDS and would like to create a Report Model based on a cube.

Creating a Data Source based on SSAS goes well, but when I want to make a Data Source View, the earlier created Data Source doesn't show up, which is necessary for the final resulting Report Model.

Could somebody help me out in solving this issue? (And also tell me why this is issue is rising?)

YTD Variance on Matrix Report - SSRS 2005


I am trying to set up a report that pulls how many patients were referred to our physicians by other physicians in town.  I have a matrix report set up with parameters so that at the end of each month users can select the month and year and it will pull data year to date for the selected year and the year prior to the selected year.  The report ends up looking a little something like this

           CurrentYear     PrevYear

Phys1  3                      4

Phys2  5                      2

Phys2  6                      1


We need to have at least one column to calculate teh variance between the two years and possible a second for % variance.  I have been scouring the web and most answers seem to apply to 2008 but unfortunately this is a 2005 server.  Any help or pointers in the right direction are appreciated.
