I'm converting actuate report to SSRS 2005.
In actuate, there is a built in functionly/control called single input filter where we can merge 2 datasets into one and show the output
into one table region.
is something similar can be done in SSRS 2005?
Attached is report output and queries used in Actuate.
Pls. help me if you can.

Typed DataSets in .NET

we can specify the data type when we create a DataColumn for a DataTable. This is to enforce the runtime type-safety for the column so that only data of specified data type can be stored in the column

UnTyped DataSets and Strongly Type DataSets

We all are use datasets as a means of carrier of data from one layer to another. Most of the time we are using weakly typed datasets. In this article I will explain the differences between weakly typed datasets and strongly type datasets

Merge SQL to Excel--Need .Net button to open on fly and have current SQL data!


           Hello all,
I do not know if this is the proper place to ask this, but my question is...

In my aspx page I have a button.  So when I press this button I want the Excel sheet to open!  But I need the Excel sheet to show me the up to date information that is in the SQL DB.  

Cutting Edge: DataSets vs. Collections


In software, five years is like a geological era. Five years ago, the Microsoft® . NET Framework had just been announced. Since then, the DataSet has emerged as the key object for performing a variety of data-related tasks in .

Data Points: Efficient Coding With Strongly Typed DataSets


Someone once said to me that the hallmark of a good developer is the desire to spend time efficiently. Developers are continually pursuing ways to make coding easier and faster, and to reduce the number of errors.

Cutting Edge: Binary Serialization of DataSets


The ADO. NET DataSet object plays an essential role in most of today's distributed, multitiered applications. Instances of the DataSet class are used to move data across the tiers and to exchange data with external services.

The XML Files: Web Services and DataSets


Programmers using Visual Basic® 6. 0 have long bowed to the altar of the ADO recordset. It's probably the most commonly used data structure in Windows®-based applications today. The ADO. NET DataSet is poised to play a similar role in the realm of managed Windows-based applications.

Typed DataSets/Connection Pooling


 Hey all,

I've got an ASP.net application that has about 100-120 sites connecting to punch in/out in the beg of shift, lunch, and end of shift. I've found that the app gets slow/non-responsive during peak times. Also, I'm noticing that the app will throw Oracle End of File Communication errors periodically during the day. I'm using Strongly typed Datasets to interact with the DB. I have a couple of questions:

1. What type of cleanup should I be performing? Should I be closing/disposing the connection or Adapter instance or is this handled internally by the dataSet?

2. I have the connection pooling set to the default - 100. Should I increase this or will this cause other performance issues? How would one test to see if the connection pool is maxing out? Could this be causing the Oracle EOF (ORA-03113) errors?


How to merge 3 separated color (Red, Green and Blue) saved as grayscale images images into colored i


Hi friends, I have separated Red, Green and Blue color from a bitmap image and stored it in grayscale (obviously).  Now I want to know how can I merge it so that I can get the exact previous colour, when I am merging them by reading its color values but it is giving  me grayscale image :( . Please help me out with some working sample code. Thanking in anticipation.

I am using the following code:

 public bool mergeToRGBandWriteBitmap(string sourceRFile, string sourceGFile, string sourceBFile, string targetFile)
            bool isSuccessfullywritten = false;
                Bitmap bitmapRed = (Bitmap)Image.FromFile(sourceRFile);
                Bitmap bitmapGreen = (Bitmap)Image.FromFile(sourceGFile);
                Bitmap bitmapBlue = (Bitmap)Image.FromFile(sourceBFile);
   Bitmap afterMerge = mergeRGB(bitmapRed, bitmapGreen

merge word document



I recently created a team site on the SharePoint for projects management and our team will use the word document for inserting the information about the project that they work on it,

My case is:

for each project have multiple documents and i created a user control by VS.2005, this user control contain a drop down list contain all projects and merge button, when the user choose any project and click merge i will use the Work dll to merge all document that related to the project and export to the user.

This is my code

private void mergeDocument()

pass parameter between datasets



I've a user table, and contact table linked to it, and appointments where contact are linked to it with users in this in it.

I need a report which show ...by user number of contact created by this user and number of appointment created

so i guess i need two datasets but how can I pass parameters between them to know what is the current user id ..?

thanks so much  

How to create strongly typed datasets with access parameter queries



How can you create strongly typed datasets using an access database against access select statements that use parameters?

The problem is VS.Net doesn't allow select queries with parameters to be dragged onto a form, it only allows access queries without parameters!

I also tried the dataadapter wizard, but again it only allows me to select queries without parameters?

Many thanks in advance


How to merge separate control flows?

Howdy, This seems a simple question but I can't find a clear answer anywhere... I have an SSIS package that processes flat data files, one-by-one, in a loop, until there are no more files. Before proceeding, I have to make sure the specified file exists. So I create a Script Task that checks for the file. File Exists = Task "Success" else Task "Fail". I then branch from that task to either proceed with the Data Flow task, OR else to log a failure message. IN EITHER CASE, I need to eventually return to the same cleanup Task in order to prepare for the next file. However, if the failure pathway flows into the Cleanup task, then the Success pathway always terminates just before, and does not execute the Cleanup Task. How can I ensure that two mutually exclusive pathways can return to the same Task? Thanks much!

repeating merge joins using full outer join - should be possible without sort, but cannot get the co

Hello,   I am trying to combine several source tables with Merge Join.  For the Moment I have three source tables all already sorted in the source query and the is sorted property with the correct keys set. (its an aggregate query with group by and sort by the key columns) Then I do a merge join between two of the tables - with a full outer join. Then I just want to do another merge join with the output of the next result. but as the merge join do not combine the key columns into one column I need to add a derived column which substitute null values on the left side of the join with values from the right side of the join. The second merge then says only the left columns of the first merge join is sorted, but not the comined columns. If i Replace with a derived column the left side primary key columsn with the combinded key columns the next merge join says the input is not sorrted? But the output must be sorted. So how do I get the next merge join working without the ssis sort transformation? the data is sorted, but the component does not recognize the sorted data? I do not want to use (can use) the sort because there are flowing >= 500 Mio. records through the pipeline. Any help appreciated.   Hanneshttp://www.hmayer.net/
