aggregate data source update data

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


I've been building .aspx pages in sharepoint designer using the aggregatedatasource to perform calculations referencing data from different lists and displaying the calculation results to the user.

I'd like to build a form that combines user alterable fields in one list, and display calculation results based upon the primary list and several other reference lists.

Does anyone have a post or link to an article showing how to do this?

i.e. I have fields that the user can input data into, click [Save], the form refreshes displaying the new calculation results which read data from many different lists.

Best regards,

Data View Web Part, update to Data Source / adding new list to existing data source


Hi all,

I have four Lists with identical columns :

List 1
List 2
List 3
List 4

I had to merge them, hence i created a data source ( Linked Source ) and merged these lists in SPD. I have used a data view webpart to display some columns from the merged lists data source and everything was working fine.

But now i have a new List : List 5 which also has the same columns like the other four lists and i need to update the data soure such that it is merged list of 5 lists not 4.

i updated the datasource property of the linked source to merge this new list as well. However the contents of List 5 dont appear in the data view webpart. 

Am i missing something here ? 

I dont want recreate the data view web part from scratch eachtime , because in future there might be List 6 , List 7 as well ... 

Image with data source bind won't update on WPF Window


This is the WPF Window Class:

  public partial class MainWindow : Window

    public MainWindow()
      image = cm.Image;
      DataContext = this.image;
      CaptureModel.Instance.PropertyChanged += new PropertyChangedEventHandler(Instance_PropertyChanged);


    void Instance_PropertyChanged(object sender, PropertyChangedEventArgs e)

      if (e.PropertyName == "ImageChanged")
        this.image = cm.Image;


And this is the .xaml for it:

SQL Server CE: New Version Lets You Store and Update Data on Handheld Devices


Handheld device users need to be able to synchronize with a main data store when it's convenient and, preferably, when the back-end database server isn't busy. SQL Server 2000 Windows CE Edition allows you to build a traveling data store that can be displayed and run on a variety of devices. SQL Server CE supports a subset of the full SQL Server package, and can be used as a standalone server or in tandem with SWL Server and IIS. The architecture of SQL Server CE, along with data manipulation, synchronization, and connectivity issues, are discussed in this article. Topics such as making your data public, choosing the right type of replication, and handling errors are also covered.

Empty Website Data Source windown


Hi all,

I am Visual Web Developer user and facing a problem when I am creating a local report (.rdlc) file.

I am using Business objects as the Data Source for this report. It was working perfectly until all the items in the Website Data Source window suddenly "disappeared". The "Add New Data Source" button on this window is also disabled. Now the window is just like a blank box only. And I can't continue working with the report file like this...

I have tried undoing what I did before but it does not help at all...

Any reason for this to happen? There is no sign or something at least indicating what is wrong.

Please help.


 ps: found a similar thread in this forum but not solved

The report cannot be opened because the data source associated with it is not a report model.


i tried to open a report i created in sql business intelligence development studio in the report builder in wss3 and it gave me this error:

Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportBuilder.ReportModel.Report: The report 'http://servername:port#/Reports/report.rdl' cannot be opened because the data source 'http://servername:port#/DataSource Library/datasource.rsds' associated with it is not a report model.

This report was not created in Report Builder. Try opening this report in Report Designer instead.

can i fix this so i can open my reports in report builder?

Transferring data (on update) from SQL to SLQL (2008

Hi there,   we are having 2 MS SQL 2008 servers, where the first one is our main machine where our ERP (Navision) is running on. Now, due to a customer request, I need to send data from our main sql server into our second sql server. But not everything, only some specific datasets (only if the specific customer is affected)... not only on inserts, but also on updates and on multiple tables.   I am not quite sure which technology to use for that, I tried to read something about Integration Services and Trigger, but as I am not really into both of them and not sure what technique would be the most suitable, I'd like to ask the experts here for some advice.   The affected rows might be around 2-10% of our total inserts / updates a day.   Any help would be appreciated!

MDW Disk Usage for Database Report Error - A data source has not been supplied for the data source D

Hello, On the MDW Disk Usage Collection Set report, I get the following error when I click on a database hyperlink. A data source has not been supplied for the data source DS_TraceEvents SQL profiler shows the following SQL statements are executed (I've replaced the database name with databaseX) 1. exec sp_executesql N'SELECT dtb.name AS [Name] FROM master.sys.databases AS dtb WHERE (dtb.name=@_msparam_0)',N'@_msparam_0 nvarchar(4000)',@_msparam_0=N'databaseX' this returns zero rows as databaseX does not exist on my MDW central server, but is a database on a target server (i.e. one that is being monitored and uploaded into the MDW central server). 2. USE [datatbaseX] this produces the following error: Msg 911, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 Database 'databaseX' does not exist. Make sure that the name is entered correctly. why is the report looking for the database on my server? thanks Jag Environment: MDW (Management Data Warehouse) on SQL 2008 R2
