Any way to change the icon to toggle the parameter panel in SSRS 2008 R2?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Is there any way I can change the icon that the HTML viewer in SSRS 2008 R2 uses to toggle the parameter panel?

I have users telling me it is too small and they want it bigger.  When I look at the page with the IE developer toolbar, the icon looks like it is being pulled from a resource inside ReportViewerWebControl.axd,

SSRS 2008 dynamic change to report parameter properties


I'm running SSRS 2008, and I'm wondering if it is possible to change a report parameter property based on user input in another report parameter.  What I need to do is to make report parameter #2 a required parameter if a specific value is selected in parameter #1.  Parameter #2 should be optional under all other scenario.

Thanks in advance.

ssrs 2008 R2 - report parameter with no default set throws java script error

We have recently upgraded from SQL Server 2008 to SQL Server 2008 R2....I am experiencing a problem with my report parameters on my SSRS reports. It seems that my report parameters that I do not have a specified 'default' value throws a java script error when I try and run/render the report under R2.  As soon as I put a 'default' value on the report param, everything is fine.  However, that is not the behavior we need for our reports...the user needs to pick their selection. Can anyone shed some light on this, it seems to be an AJAX problem...I need to be able to have report parameters with a list of values, but no 'default' value on the parameter.

SSRS 2008 Export to PDF fails for large data with System.Exception: Parameter is not valid

Hi, We are working on Range Bar Chart using SSRS 2008. The report has huge data. It is properly displaying the data, but when we tried to export to pdf it is failing with the following exception. Exporting to excel works fine. Also if the report has small/medium data it is property exporting to PDF. It is failing only in case of huge data (we have custom page size of 28" X 14"). Of course the report has lot of expressions we used to customize the colors/text as per our requirements.   Server Error in '/Reports_SQLDEV2008' Application. Parameter is not valid.

Can I change the location SSRS 2008 uses for custom assemblies?

According to all the documentation or articles I've read, in order for an SSRS 2008 report to use a custom assembly the DLL must be copied to 1) For local development on my box:  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\PublicAssemblies 2) For server deployment: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10.MSSQLSERVER2008\Reporting Services\ReportServer\bin  I've got this all working just fine. However, I have a need to put this DLL file in a different location.  Is this possible?  Is there a way to reconfigure the server installation so that it looks for custom assemblies in a different location?  Is there something I can do in the SSRS report itself to force it to look for the custom assembly in a different location?

SSRS 2008 Cascading Parameter Problems


We are having a problem with dependent parameters.  Has anyone see something like this with ssrs 2008?  It is a show stopper for us.  After everything tested out ok (or with only minor gui bugs), we set a date to roll this to production.  With this recent discovery, we are unable to move forward until it is resolved.  We didn't notice it since there are a small number of our 400 some reports that do this type of thing.  Unfortunately, they are the most important in our organization.  These worked without a problem in 2005.

Sample below:

 ReportMode (depends on what is selected in RunAsUser)

Avail: ID from ReportModeDataSet

Default: ID from ReportModeDataSet

 Location (depends on what is selected in ReportMode)

Avail: ID from LocationDataSet

SSRS 2008 - Report Parameter is read only


I have a main report that has two parameters (RptMonth, Reports).  RptMonth which the user selects from a calendar, and Reports which is a dropdown list. Produces main report correctly.

I want to goto a second report (Detail) based on clicking a textbox named KPI. I configured the textbox to Go To Report, added this parameter named ID value [ID] that is in the dataset of the query. Parameter settings - Name=ID, datatype=Integer, parameter visibility=hidden.

Get values from query=Dataset1, value field=ID, label field=KPI. Using always refresh. This is all configured in the main report. In the detail report I have one parameter named ID,  type Integer, visibility=hidden.

Security for both reports use embedded connection, type SQL server. When I run the main report and click on the KPI textbox it passes the ID and I get the correct detail report. When I deploy it to the server I get

SSRS 2008 R2 - Parent Child Hierarchy - Searchable Parameter List


Hi dear,

I'm, workin at the moment on a report for my company. I have a problem with searching in a parameter list which is based upon a parent child hierarchy. The users asked me for type in the first few characters to search the parameter faster (like in this post ) , because it's a large hierarchy with about 1700 values. In a "normal" list ("linear" without  a hierarchy) this feature is available.

So my question:

Isn't it possible to search in the parameter list in general if this is based upon a hierarchy?

Are there any possibilities or suggestions to get this feature?

Or is this the only way to do this:



Thanks in advance!


SSRS 2005 - Change 2nd Parameter Value based on 1st Parameter Value (Non-queried)


I am wanting to filter my report based on Fiscal Year.  I have the first parameter as @STARTDATE and 2nd parameter as @ENDDATE.  The values for both of these are hardcoded in non queried.  When the user selects the @STARTDATE , I want to automatically set the value for the @ENDDATE parameter.  I'm doing it this way because I'm using BETWEEEN in my SQL Query.  Ideally, I will just have the @ENDDATE value hidden if possible.

So for example:

@STARTDATE has values of 10/1/2009 and 10/1/2010.
@ENDDATE has values of 9/30/2010 and 9/30/2011.

When @STARTDATE is selected to 10/1/2009, set the @ENDDATE value to 9/30/2010.
When @STARTDATE is selected to 10/1/2010, set the @ENDDATE value to 9/30/2011.

Any idea how/if this can be accomplished?

Enable/Disable of Report parameter in SSRS 2008


Hi Friends,


I am stuck with one reporting issue and need your  help on that.

The source of the report is SSAS Cube.


I have 3 parameters





SSRS 2008 w/CU6 - Parameter Default Value Refresh Issue.



We are experiencing trouble with a parameter default value (parameter 2) not refreshing when it's parents parameter value is updated (parameter 1).  The problem parameter (2) has specified values in the available values, and has a dataset that loads the default values depending a parameter above it.

The first time that parameter 1 is selected, parameter 2 is updated with the correct default value... BUT, when parameter 1 is changed, parameter 2 does not update.

If I change the problem parameter's (2) available values to the dataset where the default values come from, it works fine, but that doesn't fill the business requirement of this report.  I also tried setting parameter 2 properties to "always refresh" but that doesn't appear to refresh the default values.

What else can I try?








Sorting Parameter Value in Report From SSRS Report Model in 2008 R2


I have created a report model in 2008 R2. Now, when I am trying to create a report from the report model, I having trouble in sorting the parameter value in multiselect dropdown list.

I have tried setting Attribute Property Sort Direction as Descending , but it always comes up as Ascending.

Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.



SSRS 2008 Change configuration file


Hi All,

We are having rdl files which were created on BIDS 2005 and delpoyed to SSRS 2005 now we have upgrade our Report Manager from 2005 and 2008, most of the report sends email subscriptions to our end-users with an attachment file to export version as "EXCEL".

Everything was working fine and perfectly as expected with SSRS 2005, but after our upgrade to 2008 we are receiving error as below under EXCEL Files:-


into the cell(s) of the Excel spreadsheet.

To resolve this issue we change on the format code of text boxes under our rdl files from "#0" to "N0", and everthing was resolved successfully with the export version of the EXCEL.


So my question is, we have more than 1000 of rdl files which sends an email subscriptions to our end-users so is their any way were we can change above mentioned format code to Reporting Services Configuration file instead of changing all the rdl files individually.

One change at the Configuration is much better than changing 1000 of rdl files!!! Isn't it?


Please help me out?

SSRS 2008 R2 Gauge Panel Resize


I have a SSRS 2008 R2 report with a Tablix.  One of the columns in the tablix needs to be displayed as a Red/Yellow/Green indicator.  I have a Gauge Panel with a ThreeUnrimmedTrafficLights indicator in this column.  The problem is that one of the other columns needs to grow when needed to display all the text and when that happens the row height changes and the Gauge Panel then also resize which means the indicator now looks bigger.  I do not want this to happen.  The indicator needs to stay the same size.  Any ideas of how I can force the Gauge Panel to not grow with the row height?
