Using a parameter from one dimension to control parameter list in another dimenstion

I have dimOrganization and dimInsideRep.  The report in question has several parameters, two of which are @Division (from dimOrganization) and @SalesRep (from dimInsideRep).  I would like to use @Division selected to limit the parameter list for @SalesRep to reps from the chosen division.

@Division query:



MEMBER [Measures].[ParameterCaption] AS '[Organization].[Division].CURRENTMEMBER.MEMBER_CAPTION' MEMBER [Measures].[ParameterValue]

asp expression bound to user control parameter?


How can I get pass the DataKey of a GridView to a usercontol, preferably without code behind.

Why doesn't this work:

<ucOrderDetails:AJAX_OrderDetail ID="od1" runat="server" OrderNumber='<%# GridView1.SelectedValue.ToString() %>'  />

GridView1 is just a list of orders with a DataKey of OrderNumber.

od1 is not inside of a databout control, does it need to be?

output cache to be used only when parameter has changed + old question of user control not answered



i have 2 questions about output cache:

1.is it just me , or does it seems that it is used only after the second time that the user reaches the webpage? if so, why, and how can i tweak it to my needs? my guess is that it wouldn't be logical to cache every time a user reach a webpage, but only when it happens enough times.

2.i know that i can use "varybyparam" for using the output cache when the parameter doesn't change , but it seems that it would use the output cache even if there is no parameter , or if the specified paramter is not there. is there a way to overcome this?

3.an old question that somehow marked as "answered" , yet i didn't solve : suppose i created a user control and i gave it values through the CTOR via the aspx file . is it possible to show the values from within the split/design mode? remember that i've talking about ASP.NET and not simply C# winforms . i write this because this question was on :


and the answer that i got was for C# and winforms . i've tried to do the same for ASP.NET , but i've failed.

can anyone please help me?

How to Create an MDX Query Parameter to Select 30 Values from a Dimension?

Hi, I'm using SSRS 2005 to report on an SSAS cube that contains a Procedure dimension.  I don't need to use members of this dimension in my report, but rather need to select records (patients) where their chart has one or more of the codes.  I've researched this today and cannot locate the best approach.  Thus far, I've attempted to create an MDX query parameter as part of my dataset.  However, I don't know whether this is the correct approach, and how to structure the syntax so that only records with one or more procedures are included in the report?  If so, what is the proper MDX syntax for setting my Procedure code equal to the query parameter? Thanks, Sid

retrieve username from login control to pass it on as a parameter for poplulation of dropdown box.


Hi guys,

Would appreciate some help with this.

after a successful login I'd like to retrieve the users' name via C# and pass the name on as a parameter to populate a dropdown box or a grid view on the redirected page.

To authenticate a user I use the asp.net login control and I saw that I have access to several properties and methods but can't see text or value to just get the name back and pass it on for further processing.

Am I thinking wrong here?

Any hint on how to accomplish this is much appreciated.



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!

Assign values to SqlDataSource Parameter from drop down list in InsertItemTemplate


Good Afternoon;

I have a Detailsview grid with an SqlDatasource, this DVG is only going to be used to insert records. The primary purpose of the DS is to populate a DDL control in the insertItem Template that I created my code is this:

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConflictDetection="CompareAllValues"
            ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:testdbConnectionString %>"
            InsertCommand="INSERT INTO tblSelections(sTesterID, sTestDate) VALUES (@TesterID, @TestDate)"
        SelectCommand="SELECT tName, tExternalID FROM tblTesters">
                <asp:Parameter Name="TesterID" />
                <asp:Parameter Name="TestDate" />

The DDL control populates correctly, but when I try to modify the  INSERTCommand property in my DS, I try to assign the value to my parameters "TesterID" and "TesterDate" but the only options for controls to pick from, is the DGV but not the DDL in it. I assume it has to do with the InsertItem template but even if I reset it I still cannot pick

Can I populate a the drop-down list of a report parameter by custom code


Hi there,

I have a custom assembly that returns an Arraylist and I am wondering if I can populate the drop-down list of a particular parameter by this list. To me, it seems that I can either have static values for such a drop-down list or that I can query the items from a dataset. However, I do not see how I can populate the list using custom code.

Best wishes
