howto: display only hierarchy-members (levels) which are selected in the parameter (SSAS and SSRS)

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Hi all,

I'm a SSRS/MDX beginner, so this might be a basic question. Sorry for that.

I have a hierarchy, which I use as a parameter. The Hierarchy has 3 levels (level1, level2, level3).

Sample Hierarchy

Now I want to achieve the following:

  • If a user selects CH1 --> the report should show only the CH1 (which is the sum of CH11 + CH12 + CH13)
  • If a user selects CH11 and CH12 and CH13 --> the report should show only these leafs (no aggregations)
  • If a user selects CH1 and CH11 and CH12 and CH13 --> the report should show the leafs and CH1 (seperate)

I guess, this is not that hard, but somehow I don't get it.

Here my sample mdx-query (the hierarchy I'm writing about is "Lieferantenstruktur" and the parameter "@Lieferant" (BOLD)):
(right now, only the leaf-level [Lieferant] is returend by the query)

SELECT NON EMPTY { [Measures].[Einheiten] } 

, NON EMPTY { ([Lieferantenstruktur].[Lieferantenstruktur].[Lieferant].ALLMEMBERS 
* [Artikel].[Artikel Kategorie].[Artikel Kategorie].ALLMEMBERS 
* [Artikel].[Artikel Gruppe Code Name].[Artikel Gruppe Code Name].ALLMEMBERS 
* {[Kundengruppen].[Kundengruppen].[Verkaufskanal].ALLMEMBERS

SSAS - How to get other members from dimension that has Parent Child hierarchy?

I have a Sales Territory dimension that has employee and parent employee attribute on which parent child hierarchy is defined and it gives below hierarchy while browsing - - Mark Rolls --- Lumin Jacs ----- Larry Gomes ------- Messica Owens ------- Tom Ted ----------- Jackson Lopez ----- Matthew Ron --- Fred jacob - Jason Ron --- Jecy Pedro   But beside this parent-child hierarchy I have other attributes like employee address, email and telephone. My facts related sales transaction is tagged to lowest level. For example here facts are available only for Jackson Lopez (being Field Executive). When use below query I get complete sales reporting hierarchy result with some measures like sales amount, sales volume. But while accesing other attributes like address or email, it's repeating address/email/telephone of jackson Lopes everywhere to whom fact record is linked, Actually I want address/email/telephone of each sales employee from that dimension within hierarchy. How do I get it? The query I used is: Here Parent Terr ID is parent child hierachy. SELECT ( Descendants( { [Dim SalesRegion].[Parent Terr ID].[Employee Level 01].&[538018] /* here Mark Rolls is 538018 */ }, 0,AFTER), NONEMPTY([Dim SalesRegion].[Emp Address].[Emp Address].Members), NONEMPTY([Dim SalesRegion].[Emp Email].[Emp Email].Members) ) ON ROWS , { ([Dim Date].[The Year].[The Year].[CY-2010], [Dim

SSRS 2005 with SSAS Parameter is not declared

Hello, I'm builind a mdx query to my report in ssrs 2005 with ssas 2005 all on SP3. I'm having the hardest time to add a custom parameter to the query, I add it to the dataser parameters tab ("..." button). Then when I try to use it in my query I get an error: The query uses a parameter, which is not declared. I've seen some examples on the goo.. internet but none seems to work. My query runs fine like this STRTOMEMBER("[dimension].[entity].&[16]") but it fails if I try to do this.. STRTOMEMBER("[dimension].[entity].&[" + @entityid + "]") Am I trying to do impossible? :) Any idea on how to get such filter to work? My filters are a bit complex that's why I can't simply use the "Parameter" checkbox in the query designer mode. Thanks!

SSRS 2008 R2 - Parent Child Hierarchy - Searchable Parameter List


Hi dear,

I'm, workin at the moment on a report for my company. I have a problem with searching in a parameter list which is based upon a parent child hierarchy. The users asked me for type in the first few characters to search the parameter faster (like in this post ) , because it's a large hierarchy with about 1700 values. In a "normal" list ("linear" without  a hierarchy) this feature is available.

So my question:

Isn't it possible to search in the parameter list in general if this is based upon a hierarchy?

Are there any possibilities or suggestions to get this feature?

Or is this the only way to do this:



Thanks in advance!


YTD with custom query parameter (SSRS with SSAS)


Hi all,

I have a report which has SSAS as DataSource.

I also created a custom query parameter for date.
I am using the parameter type "date/time" (so I get the nice calendar for the parameter). Of course I have to convert this to a valid member of the SSAS hierarchy:

="[Datum].[Jahr - Halbjahr - Quartal - Monat - Datum].[Datum].[" + Format(CDate(Parameters!Datum.Value), "MMM d, yyyy") + "]"

So far, so good.

But I don't get the YTD function to work.
It should work like this.

WITH MEMBER [Measures].[Current YTD] AS

SUM(YTD([Datum].[Jahr - Halbjahr - Quartal - Monat - Datum].CurrentMember),[Measures].[Einheiten]) MEMBER [Measures].[Last YTD] AS SUM(YTD(ParallelPeriod([Datum].[Jahr - Halbjahr - Quartal - Monat - Datum].[Jahr],1,[Datum].[Jahr - Halbjahr - Quartal - Monat - Datum].CurrentMember)),[Measures].[Einheiten])

I tried to use STRTOMEMBER(@Datum) and STRTOSET(@Datum). But I guess reference to the hierarchy is missing.

Any tipps, how to get that working.

Thx a lot.

How do I display only team members that belong to a given hierarchy in a matrix?



I want to create matrix that only displays the team members (col data) for a given hierarchy (row data). Depending on the hier level, the # of team members will vary.

Currently, the matrix displays all team members regardless of the hierarchy level.

Simply put, I have defined: hierarchy root (upper most level like VP, ex 1), hierarchy level (team mbr level - 1.1) & team mbr name. 

Data sample:

1, 1.1, Jeff

1, 1.2, Dave

1, 1.2.1, Sally

1, 1.3, John

2, 2.1, Jill

2, 2.2, Frank

Desired report:

Desire report (grouped by Hier Root):

1 | Jeff | Dave | Sally | John

2 | Jill | Frank

Is this possible?

Current report:

1 | Jeff | Dave | Sally | John | Jill | Frank

2 | Jeff | Dave | Sally | John | Jill | Frank

Thanks, Jeff

Get ServerReport selected Parameter value to use in vb query


I'm using ReportViewer in Asp.net 2.0 to view a SSRS report. I need the value of the selected parameter to use in a vb query. The parameters are populated on the server and its a single selection. Doing searches I've come across  ReportViewer1.ServerReport.GetParameters() but I can't figure out if I can use this to determine which value the user has selected in the parameter dropdownlist. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a detailsview with a dropdownlist in it. the detailsview is connected to a database table(employees having the following fields: id-smallint,name-nvarchar, departmnet-smallint). the ddl is connected to another table (departments with the following fields: id-smallint, departmentName-nvarchar). the ddl is in the edititemTempalte of the department field. My goal is to display in  the itemtemplate the departmentName (the selected value from the edititemtemplate ). How can I do this? Doyou have any ideas?

thanks a lot

Data validation for datetime parameter in SSRS

Hi,   I wanted to know more about validation of SSRS parameters. I have a simple report which has a parameter called startdate of DateTime datatype. The datetime parameter in SSRS takes manual input as well. So, the user can enter any junk value. I want to ensure that the input parameter is in correct format and I want to display an error msg when the format is incorrect. My report has the following VB code for validation:   Public Function Validate( ByVal startdate As String) As BooleanIf IsDate(startdate) = True Then Return TrueElse Return FalseEnd IfEnd Function   And my report has a textbox which has the expression property set to; =Code.Validate(Parameters!startdate.Value) the textbox on the report has to display if the entered date is valid or not.   But, when i enter an erroneous date, SSRS doesn't render the report and throws a generic error. This happens even before the code written for validating the parameter executes.   Also couldn't find a way to disable the manual input for the datetime parameter. Even that would solve the problem.   Another alternative was to make the startdate parameter as string, but i want the calendar control button to be provided for the user.

ssrs 2008 R2 - report parameter with no default set throws java script error

We have recently upgraded from SQL Server 2008 to SQL Server 2008 R2....I am experiencing a problem with my report parameters on my SSRS reports. It seems that my report parameters that I do not have a specified 'default' value throws a java script error when I try and run/render the report under R2.  As soon as I put a 'default' value on the report param, everything is fine.  However, that is not the behavior we need for our reports...the user needs to pick their selection. Can anyone shed some light on this, it seems to be an AJAX problem...I need to be able to have report parameters with a list of values, but no 'default' value on the parameter.

SSRS 2005 external images won't display - images on DIFFERENT file server

Hi, Been having trouble getting external images to display in reports rendered on SSRS 2005. Images are displayed as a red X. However, my scenario is different from some of the examples I have read about. - The images are stored on a file server that is DIFFERENT from the box on which the Report Service is running. For various business reasons I cannot copy the images locally to the Report Service box. I am using "file://fileserver/path/to/image.jpg" to retrieve the images. - Since the file server does not have IIS installed, I cannot access the images using the URL method (http:// access). I need to use the file:// method. Currently I am prototyping this setup on my test box, which is running XP Pro and IIS 5.1. The Report Service is installed on this same box. I am currently testing this through the Report Manager web site (http://servername/Reports). The images are displayed using the Image control, which I added to the report using the visual report designer in Visual Studio 2005. It is set up with source=External and with "file://fileserver/path/to/image.jpg" path values. File names are retrieved from our database and file paths are built dynamically using a data processing extension I have written. My best guess as to why this is happening is that the ASPNET service account on my test box does not have access to the particular share on the file serve

Shared dataset in SSRS 2008 R2 running on SSAS 2005

I am trying to create a report in SSRS 2008 R2 using SSAS 2005 as a datasource. My dataset has a date parameter. When I create an embedded dataset in my report everything works fine, but when I create a shared dataset with the exact same mdx query, I get the following error: An error occurred during local report processing. The definition of the report 'xxxx' is invalid. The Value expression for the report parameter 'DateCalendarHierarchy' contains an error: [BC30034] Bracketed identifier is missing closing ']'. Does anybody have any ideas? Is this a bug? Thanks, Louis

Multivalued parameter & Data driven subscription for SSRS 2005

I need to create data driven subscription for our reports. Most our reports have multi valued parameters (7-12 parameters with at least 4-5 with multiple values)and need to be send to a users between the range of 25-200. So standard subscription is really not a choice.I have gone through most of the threads before. Question 1:Does any one have a solution for the SSRS 2005 regarding passing mutiple values for a parameter for the Data subscription table. If yes, could you please share the information. Question 2:I found some solutions using the SOAP API. Can any one explain that in detail- how we can do it ?Reference:http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sqlreportingservices/thread/8ab615b4-1373-4258-bf49-c2843cfea8e9/http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=516735&SiteID=1 Question 3:Here is the other solution I found in one of the postsApparently passing in values like {A, B, C} only works when you configure the parameter values not to come from a dataset so that SSRS doesnt check for ValidValues.Reference: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sqlreportingservices/thread/b2c50aea-2032-4025-a155-306c00fcb856/Any commends about this solution?Thanks
