Format a TEXT data type

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

I have a report that pulls data from a TEXT data type column.  When users type data into the database, hitting the ENTER key will start a new line.   When I pull the text onto a report it pulls all the text as one long string. The spaces are there but the ENTER gets ignored.  This makes the information hard to read.   Is there any way to read up the ENTER character and have the report format the text accordingly?  Or some other way to accomplish the same goal?

Specifying a parameter in a matrix filter - the data type automatically changes to 'text' when it



When specifying a parameter in a matrix filter (Report Builder 2) the data type automatically reverts to 'text' when it should be 'date/time'.  Removing the parameter and re-adding it displays it correctly as 'date/time' but this isn't saved when clicking 'OK'. 

The problem only becomes apparent when the parameter is set to 'allow multiple values'.  Once this is selected the report throws up the following error:

"An error has occured during report processing. The processing of FilterExpression for the tablix 'Tablix1' cannot be performed.  Cannot compare data types System.String and System.Object[]. Please check the data type returned by the FilterExpression."

Is this a bug with Report Builder 2 or is there something wrong with my report model?

Any help/guidance greatly appreciated.

Change data type of library field from Single Line Text to currency


I have an InfoPath 2010 form that has a field listing the amount of currency on a meter. It is a Decimal form in Infopath but publishes to SharePoint as a Single Line of Text.  It will not let me modify the column in SharePoint and it will not let me select the allow edit from the Publishing Wizard.  I need the column as a currency so my Excel Queries work.

This is frustrating, and I don't know how to solve it.

I have a strange problem. I am adding a LinqDatasource object, and set the context:

        protected void LinqDataSource_ContextCreating(object sender, LinqDataSourceContextEventArgs e)
            e.ObjectInstance = new KaruselaDataContext(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString);

Then I get this error:
The type 'System.Data.Linq.DataContext' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'System.Data.Linq, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'.


On web.config I already have this:
<add assembly="System.Data.Linq, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089"/>

NOTE: The datacontext is in a different project (DLL proect) where I added a refernce to System.Data.Linq.

is there another way adding a refernce to a web project? or only though teh web.config?


XML in Yukon: New Version Showcases Native XML Type and Advanced Data Handling


The next version of Microsoft SQL Server, code-named "Yukon," represents quite a few steps forward in the evolution of XML integration. Yukon supports native storage of XML data using the XML data type, which makes it possible to run native queries on XML data using the emerging industry standard XQuery language. Data integrity of the XML data type can be enforced through schema validation and XML-based check constraints, and special indexes can be defined that help speed up queries. In addition, Yukon has the built-in ability to expose its data through Web services. This article discusses these and other XML features of Yukon.

I am building a website for my hockey league.


I have a gridview that displays the current weeks scheduled games. Ideally I have added a column to the end of the gridview that I would like display 1 of 3 values. If the game has already been played I would like to display the score of the game; if the game has yet to be played I would like the column blank and if someone on either team has indicated that they can't make the game I would like to display a button that says "subs needed" and take you to another page to sign up to be a sub. Can this be done? I have been able to change the background color of the line based on the two boolean flags from the database using the RowDataBound event handler but I can't seem to find a way to set the value of a specific field in my row. (The background is set for the whole row.)

Thanks in advance -eric

WSS 3.0 Content Type - Lost data for Titles


We are running WSS 3.0 SP2 on server 2003.  Recently, we lost the "Titles" for all content types for documents.  Our system Content Type for Document is set up to require this field to be completed on all documents that is uploaded.  Our system would automatically enter in by default the name of the document in the "Title" field it no longer does this for the user.  The user must now enter in manually the "Title".  How do I get it to enter in the "Title" using the document file name automatically?

Below is the way the setting page for Site Content Type: Document looks like.  (I tried to recreate it since I could place a screen shot in the box)

Errors in the back-end database access module. OLE DB reported an overflow of the data type for colu

Getting an error when processing a dimension, Errors in the back-end database access module. OLE DB reported an overflow of the data type for column 0. Errors in the OLAP storage engine: An error occurred while the 'xxxxxx' attribute of the 'Dim XXXXXX' dimension from the 'XXXXXXX' database was being processed. Content of this dimension is very similar to one that is processing no problem. The content of the dimension is one field only of type date.  The original content was imported through SSIS from a DB2 database on an iseries machine.  Thought a first the issue was because of the data contains some null values but the dimension the process OK also has some null  values.  The dimension that processes ok is also a single field of type date. Any help greatly appreciated, Roscoe
