Dynamic Sql depending on parameter values

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I have only just started to use Reporting Servcies and would like to know is there any way of putting IF statments into the SQL statment depending on the value of a selected parameter.

="select  code, cid, name + '(' + code + ')' as ShopName, qty, val, salesdate  from shops" & 
" inner join sal_sumdaily on code = shopcode inner join calendar on salesdate between weekstart and weekend" &
" where trading = 0 and shopclosed = 0 and cid = " & Parameters!RP_CID.Value & "" &
" and l4l = " & Parameters!RP_L4L.Value & "" &
" and newarea = " & Parameters!RP_Area.Value & "" &
" order by code"

What I would like to do is when "Parameter!RP_Area.value" = 99 then miss that part of the sql statment out, something like this.

="select  code, cid, name + '(' + code + ')' as ShopName, qty, val, salesdate  from shops" & 
" inner join sal_sumdaily on code = shopcode inner join calendar on salesdate between weekstart and weekend" &
" where trading = 0 and shopclosed = 0 and cid = " & Parameters!RP_CID.Value & "" &
" and l4l = " & Parameters!

Get Submitted SQL with Parameter Values (Not @Names)



I want to retrieve the full SQL that my Web Application generates and executes on the database. So when the INSERTED or UPDATED events are triggered on the SqlDataSource, I want to get that particular SQL Statement.

The  problem I've got there though is when I use "e.Command.CommandText" that gets the SQL statement with the paramter names NOT the paramter values. I specifically need the values.

So... how can I get it to display the full SQL statement containing submitted values!?

Dynamic Dimension with Aggregate Values

Hi, I have an specific requirement to make the measure value as an dimension. Let me explain my problem in brief. I have a fact table with dimensions like Time, Products etc and having single fact table with two measures. I have to create a calculated measure which shows the average of Measure 1 (here used calculated measure because there are couple of other calculations involved). And other two calculated measures. when I drill down with Products dimension for Calculate measure 1, it shows the average value for each products. Now, I want this calculated measure values (includes Product dimesnion drill down) as a Dimension and based on this value, I need to show the value of other two measures. For example: when the dimension products is used for drill down the values displayed will be like this and in this I need CM1 to be another dimension Products CM1 CM2 CM3 P1 0.10% 20 1 P2 0.20% 40 2 P3 0.30% 80 3 P4 0.40% 70 4 P5 0.50% 30 5 P6 0.60% 110 6 P7 0.70% 120 7 P8 0.80% 130 8 P9 0.90% 86 9 P10 1.00% 65 10 when CM1 is used as a dimension it should show the value like this CM1 CM2 CM3 0.10% 20 1 0.20% 40 2 0.30% 80 3 0.40% 70 4 0.50% 30 5 0.60% 110 6 0.70% 120 7 0.80% 130 8 0.90% 86 9 1.00% 65 10 How can we create the dynamic dimension with the aggregated values? Any assistance will be greatly apprec

How to Create an MDX Query Parameter to Select 30 Values from a Dimension?

Hi, I'm using SSRS 2005 to report on an SSAS cube that contains a Procedure dimension.  I don't need to use members of this dimension in my report, but rather need to select records (patients) where their chart has one or more of the codes.  I've researched this today and cannot locate the best approach.  Thus far, I've attempted to create an MDX query parameter as part of my dataset.  However, I don't know whether this is the correct approach, and how to structure the syntax so that only records with one or more procedures are included in the report?  If so, what is the proper MDX syntax for setting my Procedure code equal to the query parameter? Thanks, Sid

SSRS problem with passing multiple parameter values via URL %2c

Hi, I have a problem with passing multiple parameter values from one report (A) to another report (B).   For example I built a URL string in report (A) with the parameters like &Parameter1=1&Parameter1=2. As soon as I click on that URL the URL parameters look like &Parameter1=1%2c2 and the parameters don’t getting populated on report (B).   If I change the parameter in the URL to &Parameter1=1&Parameter1=2 and execute the URL manual the parameter on report (B) getting populated properly.   Is there a way to disable the coding like %2c (comma) or is there another solution for it?   Thanks

Any way to pass Multiple Values for a single Label in the Parameter?

  I have a Report that Contains 2 Parameters, @Customer & @Area. When trying to set up the Available Values for @Area, I'm having issues using multiple values for one Label, i.e. = "4006" Or "4610" One of the Filters in the Report is an Operation number, which is the [OPERATION] field, which is setup as a filter on the Tablix referencing the @Area parameter.  PROBLEM: I cannot retrieve any data when trying to use the ‘Or’ Operator here. If I simply put “4006” or “4610” I retrieve data, but when trying to combine it returns no data. Example, I need to allow a user to select ‘Chassis Incoming’, which would include data from Operations 4006 & 4610. QUESTION: Any way to pass Multiple Values for a single Label in the Parameter? I realize the typical solution may be to use ‘Multi-Value’ selection, but in this case we want the User to select the Area and the multiple values for Filtering will be automatically determined for them. Otherwise, they are subject to not getting it correct. I have tried several different ways, such as =”4006” Or “4610”, =(“4006”, “4610”), = In(“4006”, “4610”), etc….   Note: We are using Report Builder 3.0  

Ignore a parameter values ??

Hello I will briefly describe my problem, I have a report as a matrix where the years are presented in columns and below these years we find months, the report accepts as parameter the year and month and other params, I'd like under the choice of an user to display either the years and months at a time or Only the years. I tried as a solution to add a new value = "Ignore months" to the parameter "month " but when i try to view the report, it does not display anything (because it filters month which = 'Ignore months ' and finds no result) So there is a way to ignore the month parameter values in this case??? Hope to get response as soon as possible.Thank you Regards Aya

pass a dynamic parameter in a WCF method on HTTP GET


i have a WCF method with 2 known parameters and another one thats supposed to include a Key:Value pairs (dynamic parameter that will include an unknown number of key:value pairs).

the first question is :

i don't want to use XML as the dynamic parameter. what is the common way to pass the dynamic parameter in a WCF method? Dictionary<string,String>? json string? array of complex types? or other? ( my client - the one that uses my service, doesn't have Framework 3.5, so i suggested a framework 2.0 ways to send the parameter)

the second question :

the method  supports HTTP GET , should a dynamic parameter be passed in the URL itself or in the Header? i prefer the URL itself....


thank guys, please help ....

Filtering a Report Depending on the Value of a Parameter


SQL Reporting Services 2008

I have a parameter called 'activitytype' which can have a value of 'desktop', 'visit' or 'both'. If the user selects 'desktop' or 'visit' then I will filter on the field called 'activity' in my query equals the parameter called 'activitytype' which I can do fine. However if the user selects 'both', then i want it to filter on 'activity' = 'visit' OR 'activity' = 'desktop'. I can't see how to add this to the where clause in my query, and i don't want to have to create a stored procedure for evey report i write as most of the parameters we use are similar to this.

If I was doing this in a stored procedure I would just create a string variable and add the select statement with the correct where clause to it and then do an EXEC on it, but I can't seem to do that in the query in reporting services.

Is there a way to do this filter in SQL Reporting Services itself?

Label of parameter = values of 2 fields



I would like to create a parameter that has as value, the combination of 2 fields of my dataset.
Say like Name and FirstName combined as EmployeeName
There is no chance I can update/change the procedure that delivers these fields.

I tried looking into the code, but didn't have a lot of success.
Anyone some ideas?
