Reporting Services - Missing Data on Reports

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server


I have a report that uses 3 different datasets to populate different parts of the RDL file.  All datasets are set up to use the same credentials.  The report is usually run via the Data Driven Subscriptions.

When you run the report manually for an individual site, all data on the report is populated and the report exports to PDF as expected.  However, when you run the report via the subscription in report Manager, only part of the data is actually populated.

Looking more closely, it only seems to be running one of the datasets.

I don't think this is a permissions or security issue as if it was, no data would be returned at all.

Any ideas please?

Thank you.

reporting services xy scatter chart with three data series

Hi, I have a report that includes an XY scatter chart with three data series.  Two of the data series are + and - tollerance bands and the thrid data series is the test points.  The data displays in the graph but I only seem to be able to get all three series to display as a line or all three to display as data points.  I need the tolerance bands to be a line and the test point to be displayed as data points without a line joining them up. Please can you provide a solution.   Thanks

Reports are not showing on management studio for SQL 2008 reporting services

I just did the side by side upgrade for reproting server from 2005 to 2008 and everything was fine. But when I login to the reporting server from management studio I am not able to see the report server folders like we do in SQL 2005. The only think i saw is jobs, security and shared schedules. I dont even see any jobs under this jobs folder. Do i need to do anything after the upgrade to be able to see the reports, subscriptions and data sources from the management studio? please let me know. Thanks!  kp

How to save Windows credentials to a data source in SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 using Visual

I am trying to create a shared data source for SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 that uses a specific Windows user ID and password to connect to the database. Using the Report Manager web interface, if I create a shared data source and specify "Credentials stored securely in the report server", I can check the "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source" checkbox. This tells SSRS that the user ID and password I specify are from a Windows user, not a SQL Server user. I want to create the shared data source using Visual Studio though. In Visual Studio I have an option to use stored credentials but there is no equivalent of the "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source" checkbox. SSRS always assumes that user and password are for a SQL Server user, not a Windows user, and thus the connection fails. Does anyone know how to tell Visual Studio that the stored credentials are for a Windows user?

Reporting Services Reports Migration

Hi , Apart from the RSScripter is there any plans from microsoft to release a tool in the future which can be used to deploy reports/security etc from one report to another. This will be very useful for administration purposes. I believe BO also has a similar tool probably named as Life cycle manager.   Regards, Vikram

In Reporting Services: Request for the permission of type 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlClientPermissio

Hello all,In Reporting Services through http://myserver/mydbinstance/Pages/Report.aspx blah de blah blah, I get this error:Request for the permission of type 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlClientPermission, System.Data, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed.Actually, the report runs just fine, but some fields had the famous #Error in them. I put some old fashioned debug in my report to TRY, CATCH, END TRY and get the problem to the report so that I could see this report finally run in production. Yes, it runs just fine in VS2005. I have custom code in the report code window that does its own custom connection to an SQL database through "System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection" and "System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand" to pull in data that is not part of any of the datasources in the report. When I execute the report through the Report Manager or Report site under IIS, the report will run, but I get these errors in every field that uses functions to populate the data.I have searched the web for 3 days now, and the best answers involve using either CASPOL or the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Configuration wizard in Administrative Tools on the server. (I understand that the wizard does the same thing as CASPOL, just through a GUI.) I have followed those steps, but still get the error.I do not know what I need to do to make these DLLs th

SQL Reporting Services Data Connector for Dynamics CRM 4.0 issue


I can't find a Dynamics CRM topic and I'm hoping someone here will recognize the problem that we are having with integration between Dynamics and SRS.


Dynamics CRM server deployed fine. But we are having this problem when trying to install the Dynamics SRS Data Connector (an additional component that is supposed to be installed locally on the SRS server):



Trouble is, the SQL server is a default instance, and SRS is hosted on a default web site listening on port 80. In fact, this is just a plain default install of SQL 2005 and SRS 2005 on one server. Nothing has been customized. And yet we get this error when we try to install SRS Data Connector on the local SRS machine:

"Unable to validate SQL Server Reporting Services Report Server installation. Please check that it is correctly installed on the local machine."


But the SRS is installed and running fine! I can even see and run reports that the Dynamics CRM Server install had created on the SRS server! And yet the setup program insists that SRS is not installed and it won't proceed with installation.

Integrating CSS with Reporting Services Reports?


Is it possible to deliver a reporting services report (built against an OLAP cube that was built off of a Dynamics AX 2009 database) using a web front end that will care about cascading style sheets? Our customers have individual web portals with their own look and feel and we want to emulate that with our OLAP reporting as well, which will be delivered through these same portals. I want to make the reports look and feel like the rest of the website, i.e., color schemes, company logo images, and other artifact like buttons so everything looks tightly integrated. The plan is to pass a URL to logo images and use an expression to resolve header logos. I’d like to do something similar with cascading style sheets to drive the report’s color scheme. Is that possible? These reports will never be accessed through the Report Manager, only by our web front end, so I’m not bound by reporting services internal style sheets (or am I?) I ran a sample report and viewed the source and it looks like a style tag is generated within the report HTML. Can I leverage that somehow perhaps?

Reporting Services 2008 Cache Data


In my development environment, I don't want to recall (if I can say that) the underlying query every time I click on the preview pane. In SSRS 2005, that does not happen unless click on the refresh button, but 2008 it's doing it all the time!!!!! this report takes some time to run and every time I'm even moving some text boxes and I click the preview pane, the think just goes to the server again and re-pulls the data again!!!! WHY???? do I have to change some setting some where so it does not do this????
