Custom Shared Data Source (SHP Integrated Mode)

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I've seen this answer for Reporting Services several times: "You cannot use a data source expression in a shared data source".

My question is: Is there any chance to use data source expressions in a shared data source at Sharepoint (Report Builder 2.0)?

Thanks in advance,

Connecting a Sharepoint Custom list with an external Data-source

Hi I am planning to connect a Sharepoint Custom list with an external Data-source. External DB will be in Access 2007 format. More Information: I need a solution that we can connect our sharepoint list (one-way) to online db in a way that new  information is directly updated in the sharepoint list, whilst other info changed in sharepoint list  is not synced back to original value. Is there a way to solve this? -saumil

Deployment of shared data source/data set

Hi, Till SSRS 2008, while deploying reports from BIDS, even the data source is shared, the report deployment used to be successful with out any problem. In SSRS 2008 R2, what I have observed is that if there is a report that we are trying to deploy has a shared data source, then the data source needs to be deployed first. If we are not doing that, then the report deployment through BIDS fails giving an error that the data source is unavailable. Is this a change/enhancement in SSRS 2008 R2 or am I missing something critical? Request for experts advice on this. Regards,  Phani Note: Please mark the post as answered if it answers your question.

Shared Datasource in Windows integrated mode - Not able to use subscriptions -> is there an other op


Hi all,


We have a SharePoint 2007 and SSRS 2008 in intergrated mode. For cell security we use Windows authentication, which works well. Now we would like to use the create subscriptions option but it doesn't work since we use Windows authentication.

Is there an option to use Windows authentication for the ad hoc requesting of a report and the stored credentials for a subscription?




Custom Data Source Problem


I created a data model in BIDS, built a report from the data model in Report Builder 1.0, and saved to our report server.
When I run the report from the Report Manager it runs fine.

I am trying to modify the report for Data Driven Subscription.
When I setup a Custom Data Source and enter the same credentials that work fine in the Shared Data Source,
I get a very strange error:

An error occurred during client rendering.
An error has occurred during report processing.

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.

- Thanks & Regards, RaSuHe
