Issue with multi valued parameters in SSRS using Oracle data source

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Hi All,

I have a dataset which is getting data from oracle datasource and my Dataset query expression is

="select To_Char(Time_Stamp,'Month') as Month, Node_Name as Device,Connection,MSNAME,Monitor,Avg as Average,Max as Maximum FROM OracleDataVW where ((monitor='X' and msname in ('Y')) or (MONITOR = 'CPU Utilization' AND MSNAME = 'utilization')) and TO_Char(Time_Stamp,'Mon YYYY') in  ('"+ Join(Parameters!Parameter1.Value,",") +"')"

My parameter is multiValued parameter. The above query is working good if i select one value,however if select more than one value or all it is not giving me the data. I tried to put Ltrim and Rtrim in Join but it is giving me another syntax error.

Please help me with this

Data source not found issue in subscribed report (subscribed in ssrs 2005) , with shared data source


Recently we have upgraded from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008. Following is the issue am facing in some reports in SSRS 2008. More details are below. Any solution/ cause for the issue would be of great help.

 1) Reports having issue are the ones which were deployed in SSRS 2005 through SUBSCRIPTION (Listed under My Subscriptions) and now tried to view in SSRS 2008.

2) The reports use a shared data source with name ‘Test Center’

3) After upgrading to 2008 and when we try to open the report data source not found error is thrown. “An error occurred during client rendering. An error has occurred during report processing. The data source ‘Test_Center’ cannot be found". Why does it have ‘_’ added in the data source name !!

4) When we go to the report Properties – Data sources and check the path of the shared data source, the path is correct and the data source do exists in the path.

5) If we go to report Properties – General – Report Definition – select Edit and save the RDL. Immediately select Update and browse the saved RDL and upload. The report works fine. However the data source reference still remains same.

6) Also if we deploy a report fresh referring the same data source, that too runs fine with no issues.

Issue with multi-valued crawled property

Hi, The problem is, we have a multi-valued crawled property (Managed Metadata type) which we are mapping to a managed property. The managed property has been created, setting MergeCrawledProperties to false.   On the page http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff393811.aspx , it states that if MergeCrawledProperties is not set, only the first element is stored in the managed property. We are seeing this behaviour in our environment.   That is causing an issue with refinement results based on this managed property, because it is not including the second element as a result. For example, if we crawl the following content:   Doc1.doc           Property1;Property2 Doc2.doc           Property1;Property2 Doc3.doc           Property2   Refinement results look like this: Property 1           RefinementCount = 2 Property 2           RefinementCount = 1   Ideally we would like to see Property 2’s RefinementCount = 3 to accurately reflect our source data.   We also tried setting MergeCrawledProperties to true , however this merges results together.   For example, with our scenario above, refi

Need Information on pulling data from Oracle Source to SQL Server

Hi,   I was told that we will be extracting data from Oracle database and loading into SQL Server Database. I will be developing packages on the Remote Server where SQL Server is installed. I mean I wont be developing anything on my local machine. This is the first time I will be writing a package to extract data from Oracle database and my knowledge on Oracle is zero.   Could someone list out  what all I need to do to extract data from Oracle database ?  Server that I will be working is new and nothing is installed on that except the SQL Server 2008.      

Analysis Services Using Oracle as a Data Source Data Types mismatch System.Int32 and System.Int64

Hi everyone, I searched for this issue but there is only 4 questions about it in this forum from 2007 I hope that someone can help me. Im usign SASS 2008 using a Oracle as a datasource.  I already have my fact tables linked with dimensions, lets say, FACTID System.Int64 with DIMENSIONID System.Int64 (My dimensions are replaced by named querys and work perfectly) I add a new table to my DSV and the NEWDIMENSIONID looks like System.Int64, but at the moment I replace the table with a named query (I have to use Oracle quering) the NEWDIMENSIONID changes to System.Int32 .  After that I cant relate the fact table with the dimension table. Actions: Looked for the columns that relate from Oracle... both are NUMBER(5). Looked for the differences between my other tables that are already related as System.Int64 and there is not a single difference between the ones that works and the one who doesnt. Solutions Ive tried and didnt work: 1. Cast the column as SQL query didnt work it send an error.  Looks kind of obvious because we are quering Oracle... but I had to try.  CAST( X AS BIGINT) 2. Cast the column as Oracle query . TO_NUMBER 3. Do it inside the server using the Analysis Services Enterprise insted of my Analysis Services Developer. Same issue.   Any ideas? suggestions?   Please? Thank you very much ;) Sincerly Adriana L. PS. At the begging of

Issue with Enable and Disable Parameters in SSRS 2005

Hi Guys, I am currently facing an issue with Enabling and Disabling Parameters in SSRS 2005. Here is my scenario. I am having the following 4 parameters - ParamType (has values 1,2,3), ParamMonth, ParamStartDate, ParamEndDate Now What I want is When I select ParamType = 1 and 2 then ParamMonth should be enabled and ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should be disabled. When I select ParamType = 3 then ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should be enabled and ParamMonth should be disabled. I have done google search on this issue and found out that this is not possible at run time. Is there any alternative for this issue? If the above is not possible, I would like to get atleast in this way : When I select ParamType = 1 and 2 then ParamMonth should show the values (from dataset named MonthDataSet and default should be the latest Month) and ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should show as NULL. When I select ParamType = 3, then I need to enter ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate values manually or pick via datepicker and ParamMOnth should show as NULL. I am not sure whether this is possible or not....but just trying to get in some way. Here is the query used in MonthDataSet : Select Month_Code, Month_Name from MonthTable. Thanks

Multi Value Parameters in SSRS 2005

Hi Guys, I am having a parameter 'Employee' and it is multi valued. This parameter gets values from Dataset 'Emp_Data'. It has the follwing query: Select Employee_Code, Employee_Name from Employee_Table. I tried to do this but didnt get What I exactly want. What I have done is : IN the Report Prameters tab, went to Default Values section and selected From Query option and given the dataset name as 'Emp_Data' and Value Field as Employee_Code. Now When I view it in the Preview tab. I am getting as this in the Parameter Employee text box: Employee - James, Ross, Steve, Mark, Kevin........ For some reason, the client did not like this and they wants to see default as ALL Employees (instead of all those names displayed in the text box). So Is there a way to make it as ALL Employees as default (when all employees are selected). Note : I tried in this method also : Select 'ALL' as Employee_Code, 'All Employees' as Employee_Name                                         Union                                  

How to pass multi-value parameters to DDS (data driven subscription)?

Using RS2005, how should multivalue parameters be stored in a database field so that a data driven subscription can properly read and use them?  I have so far had no luck using syntax of: 1)  parm1, parm2 2)  parm1,parm2 Do single qutoes need to explicitly wrap the values?  Can you please provide an example and a SQL INSERT statement using parm1 and parm2 to demonstrate what to store in the database field?  Thanks!!

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?

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

SharePoint Data Source for InfoPath Issue

I've setup an InfoPath form which uses web services to pull an XML data source into the form.  The form works great internally, but when users on the extranet try to use it they get a "Cannot Access Data Source" error.  I have tried connecting to the web service via the extranet and it works just fine, but as a data source in the InfoPath form, extranet users cannot access it.  I've tried using both the intranet and extranet paths to the web service with no luck.  Any ideas?

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...

2008 SSRS (R2) Oracle Client issue



We have installed SSRS 2008 R2 on 64 bit windows 2003 server, and the 64 bit oracle client to connect to oracle databases.  The tnsping, and SQL plus are working from the server.  But when we trying to access the same database from report manager using new Datasource, we will get the below error.

"Attempt to load Oracle client libraries threw BadImageFormatException. This problem will occur when running in 64 bit mode with the 32 bit Oracle client components installed."

We have installed only the 64 bit oracle client, and the Oracle folders are given with proper permissions to access it for SQL serving account which is used to run SSRS.

Any help greatly apprciated.  Thank you.

How to make up MDX with parameters of SSIS OLEDB data source

Hi everyone,

I want to make up a MDX query by using some parameters, just like:

{...}ON ROWS
FROM [CubeName]

I put this query in the 'sql command' field of OLEDB data source, and replaced the date parts with parameter token '?':

{...}ON ROWS
FROM [CubeName]

However, when I clicked 'parameter' button, the exception below showed:

Parameters cannot be extracted from the SQL command. The provider might not help to parse parameter information from the command. In that case, use the "SQL command from variable" access mode, in which the entire SQL command is stored in a variable. (Microsoft Visual Studio)
Error Code = 0x80040E51, External Code = 0x00000000:. (Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Analysis Services 2008.)


SSRS 2008 Interface with cube data source


Hi All,

Need some brainstorming and your experience here. Here is a situation and would like to understand your thoughts on this.

1. We have developed some cubes using SSAS 2008 to analyse the data.

2. We had some reporting requirement in the past and we decided to use our cube as a data source for the reports and develop using SSRS 2008.

3. We have developed many reports using the SSRS.

4. Now when the reports are passed on to the end users, they are not liking the SSRS interface...like at present we cannot increase the size of the drop down box, sorting any many other things..

As you might already know the SSRS interface i
