How to sum multiple values in column in SSRS 2008

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Hi all,

Stuck on a reporting services issue when it comes to summing multiple values from a column.

I have created a table in SSRS (VS 2008) where one of the cells computes its value from summing all the values in column X. All the values in column X are expressions (Parameters!pABC.Value * Fields!DEF.Value). 

How do I write an expression in cell A that will sum all the values that result in column X when the report is run? Do I need to write custom code for this?

Number of rows/Values in column X is dynamic.

All help much appreciated! Thank you!

Configure BDC column to have multiple values selected


How do I Configure BDC column to have multiple values selected and make multiple entities data available in the same column.  Currently it supports only single value for an item.  This requirement is crucial need some solution immediately.

BDC Column with Ability to Select Multiple Values


Use Case:

We are creating a storage location for technical product articles. These will be SharePoint publishing pages. Each page will have metadata assigned to it to make it searchable by properties. The possible values for one of the columns (Part Number) could potentially be sourced by our ERP system. I'd like to do this to eliminate the possibility of free-text entry errors, but there are probably over 10,000 parts so a drop-down list isn't feasible.


Ideal Situation:

The end user enters the part number and clicks a button to verify it against a BDC entry from our ERP system. If they weren't sure on the part number they needed, they could do a lookup from that metadata entry screen. They'd need to have the option to add multiple part numbers as one technical product article could reference multiple part numbers.



Is BDC an option for all of this or am I looking at a custom metadata solution? I thought I heard along the way that BDC only supported one value choice, but I couldn't find a verification for that in the forums.

Help Passing Multiple Parameters Via a URL in SSRS 2008

Hello Everyone, I'm totally and completely confused as to how to pass multiple paramters through a URL.  Book Online is absolutely no help because they do not offer any examples of passing multiple paramters within a URL.  Instead, I get confused over RENDER and COMMAND and what should be repeated where with each paramter and on and on and on. Here's my URL: javascript:void(window.open('http://sereporting01.wdig.com/ReportServer?%2fDOL%2fTEST%2fDisney+Sell-Through&rs:Command=Render&SiteName=Disney,InsertionType=300 x 250,Context=ROS','_blank','resizable=yes,toolbar=0,menubar=0')) What happens is that JavaScript opens a new window but I get a "Reporting Services Error".  I'm assuming it's because my URL parameters are not correct.  Can someone please just give me the correct syntax so that I can get on with my work? I'm editing this post to add - I'm also confused as to how paramters are supposed to be passed through to a report when default paramters are set up in the report which i'm trying to open with the URL.  Should I remove the default paramaters from the report or...what? Again, BOL offers no help on this issue and it just seems to generate more questions.  Thanks!!  

SSRS 2008 - repeating a non column header column on every page

Hi - I am working on my first SSRS report and I have mostly all of it down except one issue. Per requirements, I need to display a column that is a non header column to repeat on every page while printing and or when I save the generated report in SSRS as a PDF file. I have seen some previous blog from 2007 where RepeatWith property is recommended to be set to the same name of the Tablix in which the column(s) are embeded, tried that but it is not working. Can any one help me on this or guide me how to resolve this? Thanks, Manny

SSRS 2008 Help Setting Up Multiple URLs

SSRS problem with passing multiple parameter values via URL %2c

Hi, I have a problem with passing multiple parameter values from one report (A) to another report (B).   For example I built a URL string in report (A) with the parameters like &Parameter1=1&Parameter1=2. As soon as I click on that URL the URL parameters look like &Parameter1=1%2c2 and the parameters don’t getting populated on report (B).   If I change the parameter in the URL to &Parameter1=1&Parameter1=2 and execute the URL manual the parameter on report (B) getting populated properly.   Is there a way to disable the coding like %2c (comma) or is there another solution for it?   Thanks

SSRS 2008 Conditional Column Visibility Whitespace Issue

Hi Everyone,I am using IIF statements to show/hide tablix columns based upon a parameter value. These statements are used as expressions in the visibility properties for the columns.If the parameter value is one that causes the column to be hidden, the coulmn does not appear on the report, but there is whitespace in its place.I have used this functionality very frequently in SSRS 2005 without the whitespace issue. The 2005 report automagically closed this whitespace up by moving the column to the right of the hidden one to now be adjacent to the column to the left of the hidden one at rendering. This is what i need to happen now in 2008.Has anyone else experienced this? If so, would you please share your solution? I am getting extremely frustrated by this...Thanks!!

using join when a column may have multiple values

Have 2 tables. Table A has among several columns one called "product_code," which contains 4-digit numerals. Table B has just 2 columns, "product_code," the same 4-digit numerals used in the same column in Table A, and "product_description," which includes a VARCHAR string describing the product referenced by the code. I'm querying Table A and trying to include the "product_description" from Table B with each record returned. Am using a LEFT JOIN like this: SELECT  * FROM Table_A LEFT OUTER JOIN Table_B ON Table_A.product_code = Table_B.prod_code This works fine EXCEPT in cases where Table A has more than one value in "product_code," in which case I get no match in Table B and "NULL" is returned for "product_description." When there is more than one value in the "product_code" column in Table A for a particular record, the values are separated by commas (for example: 1002,1003,9856). How can I get this to work so that for records that have multiple produce codes in table A I get multiple product descriptions from Table B?   Thanks

SSRS 2008: Multiple Sub-Reports with conditional visibility in one List control


MainReport: a List containing two Sub-Reports. The data of the List only has two rows. Set the visibility of the sub-report based on the data.

SubReport1: a textbox showing "Sub Report 1"

SubReport2: a textbox showing "Sub Report 2"

I expect to see SubReport1 in Page 1 and SubReport2 in Page 2.

But I only see SubReport1 in Page 1 and Page 2 is a blank page.

These reports work in SSRS 2005, but not in SSRS 2008.

How to get distinct values of sharepoint column using SSRS: paramter Greyed out


I'm referring to a previous thread: How to get distinct values of SharePoint column using SSRS.  I followed all the steps as set out but when I view my report, the parameter is greyed out.  I then downloaded the example report of Jin Chen.  In that report, he suggests a blank parameter label for the main parameter, as well as, a default value for the hidden parameter (which is different from the initial thread posted).  When I change my report accordingly, I get an error: An error occurred during local report processing. MainParameter.  Anyone with suggestions?

How to Sum Each Column Values in sql Server 2008

Concatenating column values for multiple rows


I know this question has been asked many times. I am just trying to verify that my solution is correct.

I need to concatenate a column values with the rows being ordered on another column.

I initially used the FOR XML PATH clause for the purpose, and it worked wonders, until I had XML entities (&, < etc) in my data, and FOR XML PATH encoded those. After some searching on experts-exchange, I came up with the following code for myself:

	SET @freeFieldXml = '';
	SELECT @freeFieldXml = @freeFieldXml + '/' + Value FROM @fields ORDER BY CodeType;
	SET @freeFieldXml = STUFF(@freeFieldXml, 1, 1, '');

In my testing, the above code worked perfectly. I just want to confirm that the data would always be sorted on the desired column and the concatenated string would actually have the field values sorted by that column.

I always think tomorrow will have more time than today. And every today seems to pass-by
