Is Conditional Subscription possible in SSRS 2005?


Hi Guys,

Is there a way to set up a subscription that will send e-mails based on the contents of a report? For example, I want to schedule a daily subscription that will only send an e-mail if the report contains data, otherwise it will do nothing for that day. i.e If the report has more than one row, it should send the mail otherwise it should not send the mail.....

Is it possible in SSRS 2005 or is there any other way to do it???


SSRS integrated mode email subscription to AD dist group

I have MOSS 2007 running SQL 2008 SSRS integrated mode and have created some reports and report subscriptions. Everything is working great.

Try again using Dist Group in TO: field but adding regular email in CC: field...only email in CC field receive report, again all successful.

Multivalued parameter & Data driven subscription for SSRS 2005

I need to create data driven subscription for our reports. Most our reports have multi valued parameters (7-12 parameters with at least 4-5 with multiple values)and need to be send to a users between the range of 25-200. So standard subscription is really not a choice.I have gone through most of the threads before. Question 1:Does any one have a solution for the SSRS 2005 regarding passing mutiple values for a parameter for the Data subscription table. If yes, could you please share the information. Question 2:I found some solutions using the SOAP API. Can any one explain that in detail- how we can do it ?Reference:http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sqlreportingservices/thread/8ab615b4-1373-4258-bf49-c2843cfea8e9/http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=516735&SiteID=1 Question 3:Here is the other solution I found in one of the postsApparently passing in values like {A, B, C} only works when you configure the parameter values not to come from a dataset so that SSRS doesnt check for ValidValues.Reference: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sqlreportingservices/thread/b2c50aea-2032-4025-a155-306c00fcb856/Any commends about this solution?Thanks

Subscription email using Load Balancer IP address instead of host name



     How to configure reporting services instance to use load balancer IP address as part of the URL generation before sending subscription emails?

Example: We have 4 resporting service instances routed through a load balancer. When an email subscription is triggered, the reporting server generating reporting URL is using host name as part of the report server URL. Instead, we would like to use load balancer IP so that when a user click the URL received in an email, will be routed through load balancer instead of hitting directly the reporting server URL.

 Any pointers on this?




SSRS 2008 - email subscription - 7 minute delay between two reports emailed out (normally less than


We have a report subscription that emails out through a 3rd / separate smtp server.

I was watching the progress on the report server subscription page (where it shows executing, x of y completed, 0 errors) and noticed a long pause between updates about half way through the subscription.


It sends out around 500 emails and email 475 of 500 was still on screen after a few minutes (it hadn't ticket up to 476, or 479, etc...)


So I quer

SSRS 2005 - Failure sending mail in e-mail subscription



I added a new TimedSubscription to a report.  However when the report ran, it hit an error.  The Status text was as follows.

Failure sending mail: The permissions granted to user 'domain\user1' are insufficient for performing this operation.

(assuming domain\user1 was my account)

I have the Content Manager role to the report and its folder.  I could run the report interactively with no issues.  This particular report does not require any parameters.

The odd thing was this only happened when I selected "Include Report".  If I selected only "Include Link" it would be fine.

To troubleshoot, I changed my role to System Administrator in Report Manager and re-tried.  The same result was observed.  However after I added my user account, domain\user1, to the local Administrators group, the problem went away!

What rights (in SSRS, local server, folder, etc) does a user need to have in order for the e-mail subscription with file inclusion to work?

The systems involved are as follows.

Windows Server 2003 (SP2)
Microsoft SQL Server Standard Edition, 9.00.4053.00

Reporting Services account for a data-driven subscription - SSRS 2005



I need to create a data-driven subscription that delivers a report to a shared folder. The Reporting Server service execution account is the LOCAL SYSTEM and so the subscription finishes with error. If the execution account is my Window login, the report are saved correctly in the shared folder. Is it possible to specify LOCAL SYSTEM as the execution account for the Reporting Server service in order to implement a subscription or not? Can this execution account to be different respect to the user name to specify in the data-driven subscription?

Many thanks for your suggest.

SSRS 2005 "Mixed" Authentication Mode


I have a web application where users can authenticate using either SiteMinder or Windows domain accounts.  This is actually configured as two separate virtual directories within IIS 6.  Both applications need to use the same instance of SSRS.  Is it possible to configure the SSRS web application so that if a user is authenticated by SiteMinder it impersonates a Windows account, but if they are already Windows-authenticated that account is used instead?

SSRS 2005 external images won't display - images on DIFFERENT file server

Hi, Been having trouble getting external images to display in reports rendered on SSRS 2005. Images are displayed as a red X. However, my scenario is different from some of the examples I have read about. - The images are stored on a file server that is DIFFERENT from the box on which the Report Service is running. For various business reasons I cannot copy the images locally to the Report Service box. I am using "file://fileserver/path/to/image.jpg" to retrieve the images. - Since the file server does not have IIS installed, I cannot access the images using the URL method (http:// access). I need to use the file:// method. Currently I am prototyping this setup on my test box, which is running XP Pro and IIS 5.1. The Report Service is installed on this same box. I am currently testing this through the Report Manager web site (http://servername/Reports). The images are displayed using the Image control, which I added to the report using the visual report designer in Visual Studio 2005. It is set up with source=External and with "file://fileserver/path/to/image.jpg" path values. File names are retrieved from our database and file paths are built dynamically using a data processing extension I have written. My best guess as to why this is happening is that the ASPNET service account on my test box does not have access to the particular share on the file serve

Shared dataset in SSRS 2008 R2 running on SSAS 2005

I am trying to create a report in SSRS 2008 R2 using SSAS 2005 as a datasource. My dataset has a date parameter. When I create an embedded dataset in my report everything works fine, but when I create a shared dataset with the exact same mdx query, I get the following error: An error occurred during local report processing. The definition of the report 'xxxx' is invalid. The Value expression for the report parameter 'DateCalendarHierarchy' contains an error: [BC30034] Bracketed identifier is missing closing ']'. Does anybody have any ideas? Is this a bug? Thanks, Louis

Bad email address exception handling

 I have a form that used to send an email to someone who had posted  a listing on my site, with a copy to the sending user. The code below is intended to catch the exception that occurs when email address of the person posting the listing (TxtBxTo.Text) is not valid, and also intended to catch the (unlikely) event that the user has entered and confirmed an invalid email (TxtBxEmail.Text) for himself on the form. I have tested this code for all combinations of valid and invalid email addresses for the listing poster and the user filling out the form and sending the email Everything works fine except for the situation where the email address for the listing poster is valid but that of the user  is invalid. In this situation I am getting the message on the ConfirmResaleEmail.aspx page that says: "Your message has been sent to the contact person, with a copy to you. " when I should be getting "Woops, it looks like your own email failed when we tried to send you your copy. " I am hoping some sharp-eyed person can spot the problem.  Here is the code:         ' this sends email from a user with email TxtBxEmail to the contact perons listed in TxtBxTo        msg = New MailMessage(TxtBxEmail.Text, TxtBxTo.Text, TxtBxSubject.Text, sb.ToString())    &n
