RE: Report Print / Viewers and host support

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I almost hired a guy to implement Crystal Reports into a web app I am making to basically print out a more useable list (report) generated from our DDB.  The site and DB are hosted on a cloud server.  I contacted my host provider who said they do not support Crystal Reports on shared environments.     How is that even possible to support or not support it if it is in our code?

So I am looking for some advice. If you wanted to generate a list of goods per each user, would you simply use Visual Studio Report Viewer or something else?  Pros and Cons?

Printing Landscape Report using the Print Control of the ASP.NET Report Viewer

I am using the ASP.NET Report Viewer 2010 web control in remote processing mode connected to a SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 R2 report server in Native Mode. I am viewing the report in IE8 and the print control within the report viewer is available. According to "Printing Reports from a Browser Using the Print Control" at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms159237.aspx  "The Print dialog box and the default printer settings for width, height, and page orientation are determined by the report definition." In SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio I am using the “Report Properties” window accessed from the “Report” menu to set the Orientation to “Landscape”, the paper size to “Letter”, the Width to “11in”, and the Height to “8.5in” in the report definition. When viewing the report using the ASP.NET Report Viewer 2010 in IE8 and exportint to PDF, the report renders correctly in landscape orientation and the size both on screen and printed is as defined in the report definition. However, if I print it directly from the ASP.NET Report Viewer using the Print Control the print preview shows the report correctly in landscape orientation and page size, but the resulting printout is in portrait orientation and skewed or cropped.  If I go into the properti

Print a specific Access Report with selected GridView record

I have my code output a gridview with all the data with an option to select records. I'm trying to make a code which would allow me to select a record, and then print this record using a specific Report stored in MS Access. I've located the code to print the Report it self, but it prints ether all the records or a range. Any ideas?

Report Viewer control: Print crashes if subreport is too long



I have a report and a .NET 3.5 Winforms application which displays the report in local mode, passing the required datasets to the report as it is supposed to do. It takes about 2 seconds before the report is displayed.

However, when I click on Print Layout, the "Loading..." box appears and does not disappear any more. If I want to print the report, a window appears telling me that the first page is being sent to the printer and... that's it, all I can do is kill my application via task manager.

After playing around with various elements in my report, I was able to reproduce this behaviour if one of my subreport returns too many rows (the subreport contains only a list element, listing all records).

I believe it has something to do with the subreport spanning more than one page. I played with the KeepTogether property on various elements, but to no avail. Has anybody experienced something like this before? Is there a workaround?



How to hide 'Print' button in report viewer??


Hi, i want to hide print button in report viewer by using javascript or with some CSS trick.

By default print button is visible. I don't want to hide by using 'ShowPrintButton' property.

Thanks in advnace.


need to print a report.


Guys. I need to pull an Access Report, insert values into its fields and print it. 

The original website that should have this functionality is written in ASP.NET using VB. I'm willing to install what ever. (Report Manager?)

How can this be done? 

Does OOTB SQL Server Reporting Services Report Viewer support personalization? If not what are some


I am currently using WSS 3.0 (Sharepoint 2007) and SQL Server 2008 R2 reporting services.  I have upgraded the SSRS Add In from this site so that I'm using a build from Sept 2010:  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=35c3a13f-4b5e-4d4a-86e4-07ee307b9638&displaylang=en.  I restarted IIS and the service for Reporting Services after upgrading the SSRS Add In.  I also verified in Add/Remove programs that the version for the SSRS Add In is now 10.2.400.0.

I can modify and change the title property in the OOTB Report Viewer in a personal view and when I switch back to the shared view the title differs as expected.  However, if I change the value of a parameter in a personal view and switch back to the shared view, the shared view renders with the value from the personal view.

Does the OOTB Report Viewer not support personalization of parameters?  If not, are there any alternatives?  The users of our portal will want to be able to set their own values for parameters which will not affect the shared view.

Crystal Report Export and Print button not working inside UpdatePanel



Iuse UpdatePanel for my pages, clients requested to view pages without flickering.

So, I put all component in update panel, but after that, export and printing for Crystal Reports stoped to work. If I put report viewer outside of updatepanel its working.

Have anyone this problem? There's some solution for this?

Thanks, Paul

SSRS + Print Report


We are using SSRS 2005. I created a report using BIDS and user's view the report using Report Manager.

When the user renders the report in web browser and clicks on 'Print' icon OR File|Print, we want the report to be printed default as landscape on 14 X 8.5 paper. It is not happening. How to set this as default settings.

Secondly, user want to export it to PDF and then print. I set Report Parameter\PaperSize and InterActiveSize (Width, Height) settings. So, when report is exported as PDF and Printed, it is better working.

I read about Device Information Settings for setting PDF settings, but not sure how and where to set.

How can I have both.


I appreciate your response.

Printing and Print Preview hangs on a large report


Using SQL Server 2008 R2 Cumlative Update #4 (build 10.50.1746)

A report that is 119 pages long hangs after page 113 in both the print preview and printing.

A different report that is 90 pages long hangs on page 60 in both the print preview and printing.

These reports worked fine before applying the cumulative update #4.

cannot print multiple copies of a report using PCL6 driver


I have one particular SSRS2008 report that always prints just one copy even when tell it to print multiple copies after clicking the print button in the RSClientPrint control.  After some troubleshooting, I discovered that this report is able to print multiple copies when it is printed using a PCL5 print driver, but not with a PCL6 print driver.  Other reports are able to print multiple copies using the PCL6 driver.

All of the impacted machines are using the same HP Color LaserJet 2840 PCL6 print driver, though the same problem seems to occur with the drivers for at least a couple other HP LaserJet printers (i.e. it seems to work on any PCL5 driver and not on any PCL6 driver).  However, I've got about a hundred machines that are impacted by this, so simply switching to the PCL5 driver would not be my preferred solution, as I don't know what other impacts that may have on the systems - and it just doesn't seem like the "correct" solution, since all our other reports work just fine with the PCL6 driver.  I'm not very familiar with how the report was built, as I just support the OS and drivers, etc.  But does anyone have any suggestions for what might be wrong with this particular report, that I can pass on to the guy that built it?

Thanks in advance!
