Alternating row background for first column of a report


is there a way to make the first column of a report use the an alternating background color? 

I have the background color set for the entire row however it does not work for the first column if the color is set to an expression.  If I just set it to a color i.e. red it works just fine. If I insert a dummy column to the left it works just fine (but the dummy column does not work, presumably because it is first??).

In the file below only the textbox for part number does not show an alternating background.  All others work correctly.

Expression in Report Column

Hi Guys, One of the column got expression and pointing out to other subreport using iff . However, it throwing me following error message.      An error occurred during client rendering. Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection. Parameter name: index I am using below expression  =iif(fields!Banner_Type_ID.Value  ="FWR","","Click To Show Business Owners") and underneath the field name red squally line appearing, when you move the cursor on that line it stats unknown collection member. But  that field name does exist in the dataset. Not sure why it appearing in red.  Can anyone shed some light please, thanks, D  

Report with Static Layout (Restrict Rectangle Growth/Static Tablix size)

How do you stop a Tablix or the rectangle that is a Tablix is contained in from growing.  I have been designing a report that must have a very specific layout due to government and commericial policies.  In this report is a header on top, a footer, some other reporting data above and below a rectangle that contains a tablix region.  I need this tablix and/or rectange to stay a constant size, if there are more rows, it should start another page in the report.  Instead, it grows and pushes all the datafields below it, down and off the page.    I have also tried this with a frame.  The table must show within the frame on form only.  The frame can contain maximum of 10 rows, but the table will grow outside the frame and the items below are pushed down and off the page.  I cannot see how I can setup a page break on every 10th row on a table. Does anyone know how setup a constant size Tablix/Table in a rectangle or frame so that it will not grow beyond the specified size (so the data fields below it will not be moved) and will instead create a new page?  This is crucial to our application and we may have to switch reporting solutions if we can get this figured out. Thanks for you help!

Trouble importing strange column format report from Excel 2007 to SQL 08

Hi, I'm not sure whether this belongs in this section or the SSIS one so hopefully I've got it right!  Hoping someone will be able to help with a problem I'm having importing a report with header and detail rows from our antiquated POS system into SQL 2008 tables.  The reports export in Excel 2007 format and for each header row there can be one or more detail rows starting from column B.  As such I've tried several things such as openrowset, an Access 12.0 OLE DB source in SSIS and even COM automation of Excel to try and write a conditional split which will hold the header details in variables then write them to rows alongside the detail rows.  I've pasted a small sample of the data here as I wasn't able to attach it: 01/07/2010 @ 11:18 Page: 1 RECEIVING: Voucher Journal Sort: VC|Str|Vou Date|Vou #|Document SID Filter: Voucher Date: 01/06/2010@12:00a..30/06/2010@11:59p Include Item detail: DCS|Item#|Desc1|Attr|Material|Size|Qty VC Str Vou Date Vou # Qty ABC 001 15/06/2010 12345 38 E NN 66 200148 XXXXXXXX RED SHAD E NN 66 200149 YYYYYYYYY BLACK GO E PP 60 200154 ZZZZZZZZZ BLACK CDE 002 16/06/2010 13839 8 F SA 35 217500 XXXXXXXX Natural F SA FL 218674 YYYYYYYYY Chalk F SA WE 221462 ZZZZZZZZZ White FGH 001 21/06/2010 13905 3 F SH 85 126260 XXXXXXXX Navy IJK 001 23/06/2010 13914 3 E AA 61 250005 YYYYYY

How to change row value of column before rendering on to the report

I have a detail section in report. I am perfectly able to retrieve all the data from the Sharepoint List into datatable and bind it, to generate reports inside the details section.
All the columns and related row data are getting displayed as reports in to the detail section.
But, my issue is, I want to change the row data for a particular column before rendering on to the report.

for instance, if column named Product has some values, I would like to display these values with different string name based on a switch condition. How do I achieve this?

report is stuck after addition of description to code column


Hey everybody

This is rather odd and anoying..

I have a simple report with one table and some 4-5 fields in its columns.

No groups,sorts or filterring.

Every thing goes well until i add another column to report with some desccription (lets say area name).

This addition makes the report stuck..

Running the data set alone in reports data section is fine as well.

Have anyone seen this odd behavior?

Any idea what mite cause it or how should i debugg it??

Data set contains some 10,000 rows.

Thanks alot for your attention

Report Viewer column width too small when viewing in IE 8, works in IE 8 compatibility view and Fire


IE 8 Version 8.0.7600.16385 64-Bit Edition
Report Viewer

The web page is just the report viewer control (see code below).  

When the report is rendered in Report Viewer   (IE 8), the width of the first column is much smaller than it should be. 
When the report is rendered in Report Manager (IE 8), the width of the first column is normal size.  
When the report is rendered in Report Viewer (Firefox or IE 7 compatibility view), the width of the first column is normal size.

Report Builder 3.0 renders empty page for Reports with Matrix (column group) in Landscape orientatio


I need some help.


If I create a Report with a Matrix Tablix (with row Groups and column groups) in landscape layout and preview it in print layout, the report generates me some extra empty page every 2nd page.

I don't understand the rule, why it's doing that.


My Report settings are:

  • PageSize: width: 29.7 cm, height: 21 cm
  • InteractiveSize: width: 29.7cm, height: 21 cm
  • Margins : 0cm,0cm,0cm,0cm
  • Report Body : widht: 25cm, height: 10cm

According my Report settings this shouldn't happen, should it. The width of my Tablix is max 22cm.

What I noticed is, that when I shrink the width of my Report Body to 21 cm (to the width of the portrait layout) or less, the emtpy pages disappear.

Or when I delete the column group, it also renders the report without some empty pages.

I think this problem has something to do with column groups.


Is this a bug or am I missing a setting?
