problems column width after deploying the report

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server


I have created a report using SSRS 2008. Report has two tables. They are almost identical(columns and rows.but data comes from two different data sets).

After deploying the report, it works fine when it is viewed on IE7. But after installing IE8, There is a problem with column width.

Width of the columns of the second table is much wider, although column width of both tables are set to a one value(1.20).

Can any one tell me how to fix this pls?

Problems deploying Report in Local Server (localhost)


OK, I'm kind of new to SQL Server 2008 and I'm having issues trying to deploy a report in my local server.


Basically, I installed SQL Server 2008 R2 in my personal desktop and because of this, I thought no Service Account were necessary since I was going to be the only one accesing it; anyway; I've created a set of reports and everything works fine; but when I try to deploy them, they won't go through.

I open a browser and type http:\\localhost\reportserver and it actually requests me for a password; the username is already populated, which is the name of my computer, but then for the password, I didn't set up any password for anything, during the installation and if I put my computer password, it doesn'y work either, after three attemps, the browser simply goes blank.

I'm sure this might be a very basic issue, but I've been trying to look for answer, online, through forums etc; and no good luck yet...


Thanks in advanced for all your help!



Report Viewer column width too small when viewing in IE 8, works in IE 8 compatibility view and Fire


IE 8 Version 8.0.7600.16385 64-Bit Edition
Report Viewer

The web page is just the report viewer control (see code below).  

When the report is rendered in Report Viewer   (IE 8), the width of the first column is much smaller than it should be. 
When the report is rendered in Report Manager (IE 8), the width of the first column is normal size.  
When the report is rendered in Report Viewer (Firefox or IE 7 compatibility view), the width of the first column is normal size.

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.

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

A connection could not be made to the report server - Problem deploying an SSRS report from Business

I’m having trouble with what seems to be a common issue for people, regarding deployment of an SSRS report from Business Intelligence Development Studio. Unfortunately none of the solution I have seen posted here (and elsewhere) have been able to help me so far.   Two of my collegaues can both deploy with no problem, and I am using exactly the same Target destinations as them (TargetDataSourceFolder, TargetReportFolder, TargetServerURL).   I have posted the error message below, which from my basic understaning would indicate, I think, a security issue (perhaps something local to my PC, or user account)   Has anyone experienced this particular issue who might be able to help?   Best wishes, Jamie TITLE: Microsoft Report Designer ------------------------------ A connection could not be made to the report server http://turpin-net.turpin-bg.local/Reportserver. ------------------------------ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Client found response content type of 'text/html; charset=utf-8', but expected 'text/xml'.

Problems passing parameters to SSRS report from ASP.Net web page

I have a web page that displays some data.   When they click a submit button, I want to run a report.  But I would like to pass the start year/month and end year/month values that the user already entered on the web page to the report.  Here is what my url looks like when the report is displayed: http://xyzserver/Reports/Pages/Report.aspx?ItemPath=%2fReports%2fDevicesAllNew&rs:Command=Render&StartYYMM=201007&EndYYMM=201008 But my report displays the 2 textboxes for my StartYYMM and EndYYMM parameters as empty.  What am I doing wrong?  I did a google search and I saw something about using ReportServer instead of ReportManager.  I notice at the top of the browser when I run my report, it reads "Report Manager - Windows Internet Explorer".  Is this correct?

Trouble importing strange column format report from Excel 2007 to SQL 08

Hi, I'm not sure whether this belongs in this section or the SSIS one so hopefully I've got it right!  Hoping someone will be able to help with a problem I'm having importing a report with header and detail rows from our antiquated POS system into SQL 2008 tables.  The reports export in Excel 2007 format and for each header row there can be one or more detail rows starting from column B.  As such I've tried several things such as openrowset, an Access 12.0 OLE DB source in SSIS and even COM automation of Excel to try and write a conditional split which will hold the header details in variables then write them to rows alongside the detail rows.  I've pasted a small sample of the data here as I wasn't able to attach it: 01/07/2010 @ 11:18 Page: 1 RECEIVING: Voucher Journal Sort: VC|Str|Vou Date|Vou #|Document SID Filter: Voucher Date: 01/06/2010@12:00a..30/06/2010@11:59p Include Item detail: DCS|Item#|Desc1|Attr|Material|Size|Qty VC Str Vou Date Vou # Qty ABC 001 15/06/2010 12345 38 E NN 66 200148 XXXXXXXX RED SHAD E NN 66 200149 YYYYYYYYY BLACK GO E PP 60 200154 ZZZZZZZZZ BLACK CDE 002 16/06/2010 13839 8 F SA 35 217500 XXXXXXXX Natural F SA FL 218674 YYYYYYYYY Chalk F SA WE 221462 ZZZZZZZZZ White FGH 001 21/06/2010 13905 3 F SH 85 126260 XXXXXXXX Navy IJK 001 23/06/2010 13914 3 E AA 61 250005 YYYYYY

Crystal Report with DataSet, DataTable (Having Problems)

WPF DataGrid Column Width issue

I have a simple window with 2 tabs, and 4 datagrids.  I set up each one with similar, if not identical settings.  They all get their own DataSet based binding, and have standard Text columns, and combo box columns.  Recently (past week) of development, while I was adding filtering/sorting/grouping features to my program, the column widths have begun to ingore my settings.  By collapsed I mean approx 20 pixels wide (just enough for the sorting Icon). Contacts datagrid, works great in run time, but in design time the columns are all collapsed. ContactsToClients data grid has no abnormal issues Clients datagrid AND Clients to Contacts datagrid look great in design time, but show collapsed columns in run time. How do I hunt down the problem?  I've tried removing all the temporary code, and rebuilding, closing Visual Studio and reopening.  I've remmed out the sorting code.  None of these have any affect.  It appears that my settings are all being ignored.  Here is the XAML code:   <Window x:Class="wdContacts" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006" xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008" xmlns:my
