SSRS 2008 Report Caching



I've got a question concerning Report-Caching. As i don't rely on Up-To-Date-Data for this Report i thought of using caching mechanisms. But as my reports have a lot of Parameters which are used to filter the data and often all combinations are frequently used, it would result in generting a lot of chached reports or snapshots.

Now if i switched those parameters from the query to the Expression-Based filter mechanisms of ReportServer, so that allway the same, whole Dataset is selected, and filtering would happen on this dataset on the ReportServer. Would this result in only one Cached Report? As all combinations of parameters select the same dataset and filter afterwards?

Alternating row background for first column of a report


is there a way to make the first column of a report use the an alternating background color? 

I have the background color set for the entire row however it does not work for the first column if the color is set to an expression.  If I just set it to a color i.e. red it works just fine. If I insert a dummy column to the left it works just fine (but the dummy column does not work, presumably because it is first??).

In the file below only the textbox for part number does not show an alternating background.  All others work correctly.

ASP.Net Caching problem ??


I'm having a problem with an asp.net 3.0 application using a gridview to display data.  The problem seems to be that despite a brand new .selectCommand being sent to the sqlDataSource, the gridview starts displaying data from *someone else's* query.  For example, user A is logged in and will be working fine until a few page submissions later when the gridview data starts suddenly showing information that belongs to another user. 

This is my first asp.net application, though I've been working with classic asp and ADO for years so I'm used to sending a SQL string and getting back the results from that string.  Apparently there is a complex caching system which is interferring which I do not at all understand so at this point I just want to stop the server from caching any data whatsoever.  Is this possible?

Any and all help will be much appreciated!!

is the page caching?


I am just trying to understand the basics flow to the MVC framework by putting in some breakpoints in the beginning of the actions of a couple of controllers.

One break point is at the HomeController/Index action where it just returns View() of the "Welcome to MVC".  The Second break point is at a SecondController/Index action where it uses the Entity Framework and returns a View() of a list from the db.

When I run this in debug, it breaks at the points I expected when I go from Home page to the Second page controller and back to Home.  However, when I go to the Second page again, it doesn't break at all?  Is the results of the Second page being cached and how and where?  How do you trigger for it to get check if data is old?

I check to see if the persistence is done on the db, by changing the value of a field on the db side and it still did not cause it to break on that action and displays old information in the view.  I am concerned because it is displaying incorrect values on the UI.  I do not have the OutputCache attribute above this action or specified any cache on my web.config.

Thanks in advance for your time :)

populate report viewer by code


Hi all

I have a button "Show Report" to show some data from table

what I should write under this button to populate the reports ?

A connection could not be made to the report server http://localhost/ReportServer.



  • I created a Report using Business Intelligence Studio. Its working working well, i can able to view records. But when i try to deploy the report an error occurs specifying that "A connection could not be made to the report server http://localhost/ReportServer. (Microsoft Report Designer)".
  • I open the IIS 7 and find out virtual directories "Reports" and "ReportServer" are available.
  • I check on the browser and type "http://localhost/reports".  I find the browser direct to this url: http://localhost/reports/Pages/Folder.aspx and find error specifying the following one:

         Error:The report server is not responding. Verify that the report server is running and can be accessed from this computer.

  • when i type http://localhost/reportmanager, i found the error:

    HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found

Printing crystal report from webservice



I am trying to print crystal repot directly from a C# application, which is calling webservice. I am able to display report in crystalreportviewer by passing the webservice call to datasource. However, is there anyway, I can print directly without showing the report?

Alternatively, I was trying return ReportDocument object from webservice, which would solve my problem, but I was unable to return the ReportDocument because of serialization issue. Is it even possible? Thank you


Load Report Failed


Hi All,

I created a simple crystal report using visual studio 2008 (GAC INSTALLED VERSION 10.5.3700.0) . It is working fine locally. When I deploy it to the server when I click on the report I am seeing the empty report with  "LOAD REPORT FAILED" Text. How can I resolve this Issue?

I checked the GAC and made sure that Both are using the same version of Crystal reports . Can some one help me how to resolve this issue?

Correct me with report.setDatabaseLogon and .setDataSource


Hi All,

I was getting a load report failed error on the server before (locally it was working fine). I tried everything one of the solutions that helped me partially was adding below lines to the code.

 ext.SetDatabaseLogon("UserId", "Password","DataBaseTest","ServerName");

When I add the above Line to Local Mechine it is working fine and returning data.(Records)

But When I publish this code to server I am getting a screen that has

Server Name : Filled

DataBaseName : EMPTY

UserName :Filled


screen and I am unable to enter the databaseName.

Scenario 2:


ext.SetDatabaseLogon("UserId", "Password","DataBaseTest","ServerName");

 When I add these 2 lines to local mechine all the crystal report with heading and date is coming up but the data from the sql server is not appearing. Actually this is loading the report correctly but unable to get the data from the data base. (Not displaying any records although it is supposed to display 100 Recs)

When I deploy it to the server it is acting the same way.Displaying the record with heading , date, page number etc, but no data

Do you know what should I do to
