Best Practices - Weekly reporting

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I've built a rudimentary ASP.Net web site including using a SQL Server database.  I now need to do some weekly reporting on the data.  My web server host doesn't permit Database Mail access.

Looks to me like my only (reasonable) choice is to build a Windows application to do this scheduled 'batch' work...  There isn't any way to schedule execution of ASP code - right?

Reporting Services SQL 2005 .Net 4 compatibility?


I've been working on my first asp.net application and for the most part it's been pretty smooth.  Right now I'm having trouble getting reporting services working under SQL Server 2005.  I developed the site with Visual Studio 2010 and didn't think about any of the .Net 4.0 compatibility issues that have arisen.  I'm having no problems with the site communicating with SQL Server 2005 for the regular database stuff.  The only problem I'm having is with setting up Reporting Services.  I have the .Net 4.0 framework installed on the server, however Reporting Services is still using 2.x.  I'm not sure if this is a problem with SSRS or with IIS.  When i go to localhost/Reports it's reading my web.config for my application and throwing an error: "Parser Error Message: Unrecognized attribute 'targetFramework'."  This is referring to a line in my web.config where targetFramework is set to 4.0.

Software that I'm using:

  • Visual Studio 2010
  • SQL Server 2005 Standard
  • IIS 7.0
  • .Net 4.0

Any suggestions?
