Problems connecting stored procedure to Crystal Reports

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I am working on updating a reporting system that uses Crystal Reports.  All of the 250+ reports were created in CR 8 and I have been opening up the old files in Visual Studio 2005 and updating the database location.  All I have had to do with all connections to views and even a couple of stored procedures is create a new connection to the database and then update the old report's datasource location.  The reason I need to update the location is so that the .NET application will use the correct driver.  Everything has worked fine up until I got to one stored procedure.  The old version of the report works perfectly with the stored procedure, but when I try to run the report using VS 2005 I keep getting errors.

First I connected to the database using the Oracle OLE DB provider, then updated the location of the stored procedure in the report.  It then prompts me for the two parameter values for the stored procedure, both of which I keep as NULL so that the report parameters will be passed to the procedure.  Then I get the following error:

Query Engine Error: 'ADO Error Code: 0x
Source: OraOLEDB
Description: ORA-06550: line 1, column 7:
PLS-00306: wrong number or types of arguments in call to 'STORED_PROCEDURE'
ORA-06550: line 1, column 7:
PL/SQL: Statement ignored'

Problems using sp_send_dbmail stored procedure


I want to send an email if my stored procedure fails on any one of the 6 table inserts. The email is not working.

After each insert, I include a check for errors. If errors are found, the program breaks out of the cursor loop and does a GOTO to a Fail block.

This is the code snippet:

      BEGIN --begin Fail
  --#1 - send email to itsystems
  IF ( @err <> 0 ) -- Error found in one of the inserts
    --SET @recipients1 =
    SET @recipients1 =
    SET @subject1 = 'COOP DATABASE STORED PROCEDURE FAILURE -- Project Number' -- "' + RTRIM(LTRIM(@ProjectName)) + '"' ;
    SET @body1 = 'COOP stored procedure uspCorporateAdSubmitClaims failed.'
    --SET @body1 = 'COOP stored procedure uspCorporateAdSubmitClaims failed for project number '

+ LTRIM(RTRIM(@ProjectNumber)) + '.'  
         + CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) + 'No claims were created for project numb

There is any way to identify the reports name, in which all I have used one Stored Procedure?



In my project, I have one Stored Procedure (SP) & that SP I have used in various reports. I have not maintained any documents for the same. Now for one report, I want to modify my Existing SP but this modification will affect other reports, in which I have used this SP. There is any simple way to find out the reports name, in which I used this SP.

All suggestions are welcome

Thanks Shiven:)

Send Email from SQL Server Express Using a CLR Stored Procedure

One of the nice things about SQL Server is the ability to send email using T-SQL. The downside is that this functionality does not exist in SQL Server Express. In this tip I will show you how to build a basic CLR stored procedure to send email messages from SQL Server Express, although this same technique could be used for any version of SQL Server.

If you have not yet built a CLR stored procedure, please refer to this tip for what needs to be done for the initial setup.

Inserting rows via stored procedure and under certain conditions


I'm using Dynamic Data with Entity Framework in VS2010.

Let's say my table has these fields:

PersonID (FK)
LocationID (FK)

Hypothetical scenario (it's easier for me to explain this way, so just bear with me for now)... But let's say each row in the table represents "how many items were sold by such-and-such employee at such-and-such location," where location and person are foreign keys which are referencing other tables.  Basically, there should be no more than a ONE row which has a particular combination of Person and Location.  Makes sense?

So, when inserting new rows using my Dynamic Data app, the insert form displays editable fields for Person (dropdown), Location (dropdown), and Items Sold (textbox).  How do I prevent users from inserting another row into the table containing an already-existing combination of Person and Location?   How do I displaying useful feedback to them in the event that they DO attempt to do this?

I have several thoughts about this, but since I'm new to Dynamic Data, I'm not sure which way to go.  For example:

Option 1:  Use "cascading dropdowns" approach in the insert form and only pull in the "allowed" combinations of the two dropd

Session with Crystal Reports on IE 8



Having a very wierd problem.  I have an application that uses Crystal Reports and it uses what I have found to be a common scenario (I am not a CR expert in any way).  I have an ASPX page that gathers options for the report, and then it goes and gets the data and if there is some, a button appears for them to launch the report.  On clicking that button, the code sets some values in the HttpResponse.Context area, then performs a Server.Transfer to another ASPX page that is our Report Template.  This page contains the CR stuff and it generates a PDF version of the report.  It then does the following code:

 With HttpContext.Current.Response
            .ContentType = "application/pdf"
            .AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline; filename=Report.pdf")

dynamically change column names in Crystal reports


I need to develop 3 pages.

On the first page user defines atmost 7 column names to be displayed on the report. I'm saving these names in a Sql DB table 'Columns' with Column_Nm and Column_ID as Table columns.

On the second page I'm retrieving column_Nm from the table and displaying them on the page so that the user enters the data. This data is saved in another table 'Summary' with the Columns column1 through column7.

on the 3rd page I need to show a report of 'Summary' table.

How do I dynamically replace column1 through column7 names with that of 'Column_Nm' on the report?

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

Call SQL Stored Procedure Asyncronously



I have a C# web page that calls a stored procedure. The page passes few parameters to the stored procedure and call it. The stored procedure does so many time consuming tasks on a huge number of database records but does not return any value.

Since the page is not expecting any return from the stored procedure, I want to execute the stored procedure asyncronously so that the user can continue working on the web page and other web pages while the stored procedure is running in the background. Also, I do not want the web server processes to be busy with the running stored procedure.

Any help, please.

Best regards,


Unable to select any stored procedure while creating TableAdapters in wizard


I'm using VS 2008 and SQL 2008.

I have created the tables and the stored procedures in SQL 2008.

In VS 2008, I created DataSet1.xsd in App_Code and created the connectionString in web.config file.

Then when I go into the DataSet1.xsd and try to add a TableAdapter, strange things happened.

First I chose the data connection, then selected "Use existing stored procedure", then there was nothing listed in the dropdownlists (in Select, Insert, Update, or Delete). 

I'm sure the connectionString is correct because if I choose "Use SQL statement" and type in a "select * from mytable1", the TableAdapter can be created without any problem.

Any suggestions?

Crystal Reports can grow fields with large amounts of text layout problem


A can grow field in the details section of a crystal report may have so much text that the section will be larger than the remaining space available on the page (the space below the previous record).  The section has vertical lines on it with Extend to bottom of section when printing set to true.  The section starts on a new page (and may continue on the following one).  I want it to start on the page where the last record was laid out, and continue to the new page without leaving a gap with vertical lines on it.  I'm using Crystal Reports 9 and I can't work out how to do it. Has anyone got a solution?
