Cannot create a connection to data source !!!! SSRS 2005

I cannot get this error resolve either for myself or any users, and I'm actually part of the Admin group!  Furthermore, a user with whom I'm tring allow to view this report keeps getting prompted for their windows username and password.  I thought that since this datasource was set to Windows Authentification that it would just pass it through? I'm pulling my hair out at this point: Screen Shots: http://www.webfound.net/datasource_connection.jpg http://www.webfound.net/datasource_connection2.jpg http://www.webfound.net/datasource_connection3.jpg Also As far as I know, I've given sufficient permissions to the right logins and right users on my SQL Databases and related stored procs that the datasets (not datasource) run An error has occurred during report processing. Cannot create a connection to data source 'datasourcename'. For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors

LINQ data source control and db connection string


I have designed a few pages which use LINQ datasources and Gridviews to maintain data.

I have built a data layer which happily uses System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("myConnectionString").ConnectionString

However, the LINQ data source controls use Settings.designer.vb MySettings class definition which is auto generated and doesn't except the above Connection string.

Any ideas?

SSAS Deployment Wizard - Data Source connection string userid and Password getting removed



I have an SSAS database (Analysis Services 2005) which connects to Oracle for the data. I have the userid and password
saved in the connection string.


If I deploy the cube from Visual Studio I DON't have to manually edit the Data Source in the server to input the userid and password. The information is retained.


If I do a build and then deploy .asdatabase file using Deployment Wizard (Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Deployment.exe), the connection information dissappears. I have "Remove Passwords" = False in Project configuration. So when you build the project there will be a file with extension .assecurityinformation which holds the encrypted security info. Somehow

deployment wizard doesn't look at this file.


After the build I execute this command

Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Deployment.exe  .\Project.asdatabase /s:.\Deployment.log

I tried interactively and silent mode. Either way I cannot deploy the project with the userid and password in it.

Any clue?

Connection String issue: Keyword not supported: 'data source'.


I have three connection strings for my web application (ASP.Net) as MVC2 provides by default.

Bar the locations and the names, the syntax is identical, but in the second connection string, it keeps returning "Keyword not supported: 'data source'." EVEN THOUGH IT'S IDENTICAL. D:

Please help! I've tried changing the Syntax to include a "Metadata" tag, still didn't work!

Configurable connection string/data source for CE 4.0


I'm using CE 4.0 in a Silverlight app and my connection string  is:

Data Source=C:\MyApp\MyApp.Web\App_Data\MyAppDB.sdf;Password=***********;Persist Security Info=True

I don't want a hard coded file path in the connection string. Is it possible to make this configurable, or determine directory its located in at runtime?

abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

ASP.NET provides a configuration system we can use to keep our applications flexible at runtime. In this article we will examine some tips and best practices for using the configuration system for the best results.

The element of a web.config file is a place to store connection strings, server names, file paths, and other miscellaneous settings needed by an application to perform work. The items inside appSettings are items that need to be configurable depending upon the environment, for instance, any database connection strings will change as you move your application from a testing and staging server into production.

Let's abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

Excel Data Source SSIS AcquireConnection failed 0x80004005 unspecified error

Nuances of using Excel data sources with SSIS Your Development Machine Setup Needs Jet Drivers, available along with the default Office install so if you have Excel working fine locally, this is enough. Installing the "Office Data Connectivity Components" (download file name AccessDatabaseEngine.exe) as well as having Office installed corrupts the Jet Driver stack so that SSIS in VS 2008 cannot create the object to read the XLS file. You will see the title error "Unspecified Error" and "80004005" code. Resolution: Uninstall the Jet Engine pack on your development XP machine if you have Office. It will be listed as something like "Microsoft Access Database Engine (2010)". Run Office 200x setup with the Repair option and reboot. Try configuring the task in SSIS and it should be able to read the Sheet names again and columns.  Live Server (32-bit and 64-bit) Deploying your SSIS package to a server without Office 200x means it will not have the Jet Engine drivers to read XLS, XLSX files. You must install the 32-bit Office Data Connectivity Components - Jet Drivers mentioned above found here  (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=7554f536-8c28-4598-9b72-ef94e038c891&displaylang=en). There are no 64-bit drivers; therefore regardless of 32 or 64-bit live environments, this step is the same. You shoul

SSIS Excel Connection Manager Data Type Conversion Issues with SS Agent Job

Hi All! I have an issue I've been trying to fix but can't seem to figure it out. I was hoping a kind person would point me in the right direction. :o) I have an SSIS package that uses an excel connection manager source, and I want to run this package through a job scheduled in the SQL server agent. The data types for the excel file fields are 2 (DT_WSTR) and 5 (DT_R8). When I run the package directly through the SSIS package (VS solution) all of the data fields are properly imported into the database table. But...when I run this package through the SQL server agent job, ONLY the string (DT_WSTR) fields in each row are being imported, all of the float fields are imported as NULL. I set the data types for these float fields as "float" in the SQL server import table (data type). Even though the excel source float fields are indicating a type of DT_R8 in the excel connection manager and I set the data types in the SQL server table to "float", I also used the data conversion component and set the type to "float" as a fail-safe. I guess I should add to that the data access mode in the excel connection manager is using a custom code to select only those columns that I needed and to trim rows that I didn't need. Here's my code that I have in the excel source editor: select f1, f2, f3, f5, f6, f7, f8 from [mdo$] where f2 <> 'Rep Name'

Choosing the data source dynamically in ssrs

I have a report which pulls data from different database and servers based on date parameters. For instance Server1 and Table1 has the most recent data for the past 3 months and Server2 and Table1 has the archived data, so if a user is issuing the startdate & enddate within the recent 3 months it has to use the datasource1 else datasource2 based on the date parameters. How do we do this in SSRS?

SSRS 2008 - Data Source cannot be found in Preview

Hello; Something weird is happening to me - Never happened before on 100's of reports using Shared Data Sources. I have a Shared data source defined and when I try to preview a new report, I get a message saying that "The data source 'ProjectList' cannot be found" When I created the dataset, I pointed it to the shared data source. I can preview the data when I run my query from query designer, so it's obviously seeing my shared data source. If I use an embedded data source, the report renders just fine. I'm using SSRS 2008R2 BIDS to develop the report - the data source is hosted from a SQL Server 2008R1 database. Anyone ever seens this? How'd you get out of it? ThanksThanks Ron...

SSIS 2008 - Excel Source using SQL Connection cancels as soon as package runs.

Let me preface this by saying I'm brand-new to SSIS development. I'm using 64-bit SSIS 2008 and I'm trying to read an Excel spreadsheet using OLE DB. I've already run into and corrected the Run64BitRuntime problem.  Now when I invoke the Package it cancels immediately with the following output: SSIS package "Lesson1X.dtsx" starting. Information: 0x4004300A at Data Flow Task, SSIS.Pipeline: Validation phase is beginning. SSIS package "Lesson1X.dtsx" finished: Canceled. The program '[5400] Lesson1X.dtsx: DTS' has exited with code 0 (0x0). When I edit the Excel Source component itself there are no errors and I am able to Preview the results successfully.  If I use Table or View to access the file, the package runs successfully. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
