RSSAggregator Web Part when the source URL is not found

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hey all,

Bit of a longshot with this post, but i'm using an RSSAggregator Web Part on my site. When the URL it refers to can't be found however the little javascript 'loader' bar just stays there, bouncing from side to side - is there any way I can make it display a meaningful error condition?

SSRS 2008 - Data Source cannot be found in Preview

Hello; Something weird is happening to me - Never happened before on 100's of reports using Shared Data Sources. I have a Shared data source defined and when I try to preview a new report, I get a message saying that "The data source 'ProjectList' cannot be found" When I created the dataset, I pointed it to the shared data source. I can preview the data when I run my query from query designer, so it's obviously seeing my shared data source. If I use an embedded data source, the report renders just fine. I'm using SSRS 2008R2 BIDS to develop the report - the data source is hosted from a SQL Server 2008R1 database. Anyone ever seens this? How'd you get out of it? ThanksThanks Ron...

Data source name not found and no default driver specified on win xp


Hi All,

I have got a new laptop with I5, windows 7 64-bit and I am trying to run application developed in vb6 which uses DSN connection to connect to the database which is in SQL 2000. Actually I was facing issue "SQL server does not exists" while connecting to the db and I have solved this by running c:\windows\syswow64\odbcad32.exe and configuring dsn through it.

Now I have installed virtual machine windows xp professional sp3 which is 32-bit and when I run my application from VM then I am getting following error -

"Datasource name not found and no default driver specified"

when I go to administrative tools > Data sources(ODBC) then I can see only one driver i.e. SQL server. I configured it but not working..

Can somebody help me on this? I am stuck..

Prabi I can be still better.

trying to install sql server2005 on a windows 2003 server box.

getting msg below at the sql server .  i looked at other posts on trying to uninstall  SQL Native Access Client and norton antivirus.  i could never find the snac on the add - remove programs and this server does not have a virus protection program yet.

here's the history of the installs on the server:

wanted to test a 2005 upgrade so:

  1) installed sql server 2000 then sp4 then restored some databases to it - all OK

  2) tried to upgrade to sql 2005 but ran into problems and left it at that.

had a disk drive crash on the d drive so lost the installs but not the operating system

when the drive was replaced, left alone for a while

then wanted to test a straight 2005 install

  1) removed the broken 2005 attempt

  2) removed the 2000

  3) installed 2005 and got the error on the subject line:

Data view web part: Change Data Source

I have a data view web part that I would like to use multiple time in the same page, but tied to different sharepoint lists.  Is there an efficient way to do this?

Validate Binding that is part of a BindingGroup on LostFocus without updating source


By default, when you tab out of a TextBox whose Text property is data bound, the value is pushed to the data source.  Data validation occurs as part of this process.

When you create a BindingGroup and the Binding becomes part of this BindingGroup, the value is no longer pushed to the data source when the TextBox loses focus.  This is what I want.  However, the data validation no longer occurs.  This is not what I want.

How do I validate a binding that is part of a BindingGroup on LostFocus without updating the source?  I want my users to have immediate feedback of data entry errors but I want to retain control over when data is pushed to the data source.

It would be great if this could be implemented as a style in a Theme.xaml file or any other solution that would not require hooking up to each and every LostFocus event handler in my application.

Selecting Result from Content Query Wb Part gets Webpage cannot be found Error

I have MOSS 2007 running on Windows Server 2008.

I have added a custom List to a MOSS 2007 site sollection. The List works fine.

I have added a new webpage to the site collection Home page that includes a Content Query Web Part. When the Content Query WP is configured it returns items from the custom List as expected. But when I select one of the result items returned by the Content Query WP, the Browser says "The webpage cannot be found."

Why doesn't the Content Query WP result navigate to a page that displays the List item selected from the results list?

I have 2 items returned in the CQWP results list and both generate the same error when selected.

If I go to the custom List, the items display OK when selected.

The URLs generating the error looks like:

Data View Web Part, update to Data Source / adding new list to existing data source


Hi all,

I have four Lists with identical columns :

List 1
List 2
List 3
List 4

I had to merge them, hence i created a data source ( Linked Source ) and merged these lists in SPD. I have used a data view webpart to display some columns from the merged lists data source and everything was working fine.

But now i have a new List : List 5 which also has the same columns like the other four lists and i need to update the data soure such that it is merged list of 5 lists not 4.

i updated the datasource property of the linked source to merge this new list as well. However the contents of List 5 dont appear in the data view webpart. 

Am i missing something here ? 

I dont want recreate the data view web part from scratch eachtime , because in future there might be List 6 , List 7 as well ... 

A field or property with the name 'User_x0020_Name' was not found on the selected data source.


I am trying to bind the XML data to a datagrid from an XML file.  I don't know why I am getting the message: "A field or property with the name 'User_x0020_Name' was not found on the selected data source."

The "User_x0020_Name" field does exist in the XML file.  This is a portion of the XML file.

Trouble binding InfoPath "template part" to data source


I created an InfoPath template part using an XSD.  I added it to my custom controls, but when I try to insert it into the main template, it asks to be bound to a data source.  I have created a group to bind it to in the data source, and I created a "complete XML document or schema" based on the same XSD as well.  It matches the schema in the template part exactly.  The template part won't bind to either node.  I get the error message, "Requirements_Template_Part cannot be bound to the selected field or group." 


This XSD is complex and contains a repeating table.  I read somewhere that this might be a problem.  Unfortunately , the XSD cannot be changed much though this is a format imposed on us from another group.  A coworker is writing a transform to cull out the data from this XSD and feed it into another system.  He says he will update the XSD from time to time, and I thought that a template part would make it easy for me to update it whenever he updates his XSD.

[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data Source name not found and no device driver specified

I get the above error message when running my VB6 sp4 application on a new Win7 workstation (32 bit machine). The app runs fine on a WIn xp sp3 workstation.

After the error above the app returns a runtime error -2147467259 (80004005). I am attaching my connection string:

Data source not found issue in subscribed report (subscribed in ssrs 2005) , with shared data source


Recently we have upgraded from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008. Following is the issue am facing in some reports in SSRS 2008. More details are below. Any solution/ cause for the issue would be of great help.

 1) Reports having issue are the ones which were deployed in SSRS 2005 through SUBSCRIPTION (Listed under My Subscriptions) and now tried to view in SSRS 2008.

2) The reports use a shared data source with name ‘Test Center’

3) After upgrading to 2008 and when we try to open the report data source not found error is thrown. “An error occurred during client rendering. An error has occurred during report processing. The data source ‘Test_Center’ cannot be found". Why does it have ‘_’ added in the data source name !!

4) When we go to the report Properties – Data sources and check the path of the shared data source, the path is correct and the data source do exists in the path.

5) If we go to report Properties – General – Report Definition – select Edit and save the RDL. Immediately select Update and browse the saved RDL and upload. The report works fine. However the data source reference still remains same.

6) Also if we deploy a report fresh referring the same data source, that too runs fine with no issues.
