SSRS 2008 formatting issue - different in visual studio preview/pdf/excel vs. internet explorer


The formatting of the report is perfect when viewed in Visual studio and also after exporting it to pdf or excel. But when I deployed my solution and opened it on IE/Firefox there is a lot of problem in formatting. Specifically the row height is giving me a problem. I manually entered them to be 0.1in and made the CanGrow field as false to force that row height but some rows in the tablix expand ( to 0.15in, which is the height of my header). This is true for a matrix as well. Is there is a feature to lock the row height in IE o any other web browser?

Importing a query from an .mdx file - Support (SSRS 2008)


I'm writing an MDX query which would be used as the main dataset. The issue that I'm facing is that the query is really big because of it's nature of members and requirement and Reporting Services doesn't support the number of characters that I'm using. So I saw this Import button and imported the MDX query. However I don't get the list of members in the fileds section which I can use in the Report Textbox. I was reading http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd239327.aspx and it says that "Importing a query from an .mdx file is not supported"....

My question is would it every be supported? Is there a workaround for what I'm trying above? I would appreicate any help on the same.

Thank you!

Traditional Chinese text flows into right Margin area when exporting to Word - SSRS 2008 R2



I've a Master Report which contains many sub reports. The page size is 11 X 8.5. I've set the .5 top & bottom margins for the Master page & set .5 left & right margins for all the sub reports.

The report renders fine when exporting to pdf. But while exporting to WORD it didn't show up any margins except left. So I copied just the Master page(for Word) and added an empty text box of size .5 on top & bottom. This work around works fine for English. But for Traditional chinese the text flows into right margin area. Left, Top & bottom margins are fine. And I really don't want to change the sub report settings since it works fine for pdf.

Any help would be appreciated!

SSRS 2008 - Passing parameter into textbox - can't seem to apply formatting to it (date/currency)


I have a report that is displaying a parameter in a textbox inside the report.

Now I right clicked on the textbox, went to properties, and set number formatting to: Date - 01/31/2000

However, when I render the report it does not display the date in that format. It displays it in the way the sproc returns it which is: 5/13/2011 3:08:30 PM

I tried changing the parameter type to TEXT instead of datetime, made no difference.

I am having the same problem with currency. I will return 12345 and it will just display that way in the textbox instead of $12,345.00.

Any suggestions?

SSRS 2008 R2 and sharepoint 2007 report builder problems


I upgraded our enterprise sql server 2008 to sql server 2008 r2 last weekend.  Along with this i installed the report builder 3.0 on the servers as well and the updated ssrs add in for sharepoint.  The upgrade went fine, no errors that i could find.  The problem is now when i go to a library that has the report builder content type enabled and click report builder report under new it does not load report builder 3.0.

I updated the custom report builder url in central administration from /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_2_0_0_0.application to /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_3_0_0_0.application

however when i do click the new report builder report it kicks me over to http://company.com/ReportServer_MossEnt  which itemizes out each individual sharepoint site in the farm.

Is the integration of ssrs 2008 r2, sharepoint 2007 and report builder 3.0 work?  did i install the wrong version of the report builder add in?  The above is the only problem i am having now.

all servers are server 2008, 64 bit and moss 2007 enterprise with sp2 & april 2010 cu
