Hiding Columns in Matrix (RS 2005) Report Based on Columns' Values

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server


Is there a way to hide automatically columns in a Matrix type raport in RS 2005.  The columns I want to hide have only 'N/A' values in them because there is no data available to populate them.  Here is the example:

Hiding Columns (not column groups) in a Matrix, can it be done

Hi.  I want to be able to hide some of the columns of this report.  For example , I don't want to see the % of State Total for Total column, and I don't want to see the % of Location Total for the other column groups.  Can this be done?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks J I am using Visual Studio 2005   Total   Anaheim CA Arlington VA Atlanta GA Count % of State Total % Of Location Total Count % of State Total % Of Location Total Count % of State Total % Of Location Total Count % of State Total % Of Location Total Count % of State Total % Of Location Total USA   3 100.00% 0.02%   0.00% 0.00%   0.00% 0.00%   0.00% 0.00%   0.00% 0.00%   AB 2 100.00% 0.01%   0.00% 0.00%   0.00% 0.00%   0.00% 0.00%   0.00% 0.00%   AE 8 100.00% 0.04%   0.00% 0.00%   0.00% 0.00% 3 37.50% 0.10% 1 12.50% 0.07%   AK 32 100.00% 0.17%   0.00% 0.00%   0.00% 0.00% 3 9.38% 0.10% 1 3.13% 0.07%   AL 161 100.00% 0.85%   0.00% 0.00%   0.00% 0.00% 17 10.56% 0.54% 84 52.17% 6.11%   AP 3 100.00% 0.02%   0.00% 0.00%   0.00% 0.00%   0.00% 0.00% 1 33.33% 0.07%

Custom Columns - Fill values based on value selected in a lookup column



I am working with Sharepoint 2007. I have a list of 130 buildings located in six different cities and three different provinces. I imported this list from an Excel spreadsheet. I also have a document library that contains various files associated with these buildings. I've added a custom column to the document library that contains a lookup field to the name of each building. I also have two additional custom columns that have the city and province. What I would like to accomplish is to have the city and province columns automatically be set based on the name of the building selected, such that these values are taken from the same row of this list as the building name.

Hopefully my question makes sense.

Thank you, James

Segregating Measure values based on the dimension value into separate columns.


Hi Hopefully you can help me with another problem I'm having.  I'm trying to design a regular SSRS report using a cube as data source here is where I run into difficulties.  This is a financial type report so it has attributes such as Actuals, Forecast,Plan etc.  These attributes reside in a cube in a dimension called "PROCESS".  The measures is of course dollars.  So what I need is to somehow segregate dollars for actuals into one column forecast into another etc etc in my query designer so my dataset has 3-4 distinct dollar columns on which I can build my report. I thought I could accomplish it by using a calculated member functionality but I can't find anything there that will let me filter the values by "PROCESS" dimension.  I've also tried to create separate datasets filtering dollars the way I need them in each however report will not let me have fields that belong to two different datasets.  Any thoughts on how to solve this issue.  Hopefully using GUI instead of MDX editor. 


Matrix Report With Month/Year Columns - Display date even when there are no records for that month


I've created a matrix report that displays the quantity of different products  set to expire by month/year. The stored procedure returns records for a variety of products and each record contains an expiration date. If there are no products/records that contain an expiration date of lets say 6/2010 then 6/2010 will not appear as a column in the report.

I need a way to force these month/year columns to appear in the report.


Does anyone have a suggestion on how I can make that happen?

Can someone show me how to remove blank columns from a matrix report with parameters?


I have a drilldown matrix report with 5 parameters that I group on. The users have the option of selecting any of these parameters when they preview the report. They can also select No grouping as one of the parameter option.   When I run the report and select for example, 4 parameters and the No grouping option, I get blank columns.  When I select no grouping, no data is displayed.  As a result, I get blank columns.  Is there a way to hide the blank columns?  I would appreciate any suggestions.  See table example below:



dynamically adding sql server columns based on number of files in fileuploader


I want to create a new table to sql database at runtime.  The column names would be "Name", "Date", "Event".  I would also like to have one more column name "Image" but the problem is that since the amount of images will vary, I want the application to count the amount of files in the Multiple fileuploader and then add a image column to the table for the respected amount of files. 

For example if i am uploading 3 files in the multiple fileuploader, the names should be "Name", "Date", "Event", "Image1", "image2", Image3"

I also would like that table name to be name dynamically from the textbox Name when the user enters the information.


I have the following code to make a new table, but I dont know how to name the fields at runtime like previously asked please help!!!

Hiding and showing the columns depends upon the filter condition

H,   We developed around 70 ssrs reports for our new application.Its like,all the report names are menrioned in the left hand side and if we click it,.Net calls the SSRS reports and shows the filters in the top of Right hand side.   We will select some filters there and then 'GO', it will fetch records. The issue now is, assume we have 6 columns in the report and depends upon the selection in the filter area, the columns should vanish.is it possible?

SSRS Report based on SSAS Cubes doesn't show NULL values correctly

I have a SSRS report which is based on an SSAS Cube. In the Cube the formating of numeric fields that NULL values are properly shown as NULL values. In the Cube Browser and Excel this is shown correctly. However when I design the report already the query against SSAS shows these fields as "0" instead of NULL. Is there a way to fix this or is this a bug ?  

Issue with transactional replication on SQL 2005 SP3 using row filters with bit columns

We recently upgraded from SQL 2000 to SQL 2005 SP3 and I am noticing something that I think is a bug with replication from a publication that has an article in it with row filters.  It seems to be that if the row filter has columns that are bit datatype and that column is updated on the publisher to cause the row filter to exclude it, it is not removed from the subscriber.  If you update a column that is part of the row filter that is not a bit datatype it works as expected.  I can reproduce this in a test environment with a small base table.  In production this is resulting in an occasional 20598 error "The row was not found at the Subscriber when applying the replicated command". Is anyone aware of a hotfix that addresses this? I can think of a few work arounds but the table is rather large and I really would like to avoid having to pull replication, re-snap or changing datatypes on the base table etc. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Comparing columns with NULL values--Merge says unmatched when data is matched.

I found the article below describing this same issue with the Oracle merge statement.  It also described a work-around:    http://searchoracle.techtarget.com/tip/Merging-datasets-with-NULL-values I have been unable to find a solution to this issue for SQL Server 2008.  I am trying to do basic ETL from Staging table to a Type II dimension table in a Data Warehouse.  I am using the Merge statement with the Unique key minus the modification date as my merge key list.  I have a handful of columns (in both Staging and the DW) containing nulls in my merge key list.  I have tried the ISNULL function and the ANSI_NULL db option (OFF) with no success.  When I put zeros in the null columns, it works as expected.  I am about to try separate INSERT and UPDATE statements, but I fear that the NULL comparison issue will bite me there with the JOIN statement.  Has anyone else experienced this?  NULL values are valid in our Data Warehouse.  How can I make T-SQL handle them? Thank you for your help, Jesse

Default values for filters not populating in report builder (SQL server 2005)



I  am frustrated with this challenge for  populating default values for filters in report builder. Here are the steps that I am performing.

I have clicked on the filter icon, then dragged the dimension to the filter pane, switched the properties to Prompt and changed the operator to 'in this list'.

 by default the value selected is 'no value selected', Microsoft online tutorials says that this should automatically populate the filter criteria with the default list of values for the underlying dimension. However it dosen't

How do I populate this filter with default list of values.
