SSRS 2008 - Fixed headers while scrolling - works fine for Matrix - but not for Table??!!


I have this feature working fine for matrix, but it does not work as expected for Table (Tablix).

I tried all over, and setting both check boxes in the 'Tablix Properties' dialog page 'Repeat header rows on each page' and 'Header should remain visible while scrolling' for both row header and column header, but none of it is working. Am I missing something?

In the properties table (F4) for text box of tablix, under 'Other' there is 'RepeatWith' - none / tablix: what is this used for? I tried this property also but I cannot get the headers fixed / visible while scrolling. I cannot get the 'column headers' repeat on each page of the report. Very frustrating...

Does anyone face similar issue? Can anyone help please? Do I need any update / download any fix? For now I have the following version installed for Visual Studio 2k8:

SSRS 2005 Report Printing Additional Blank Page



New to SSRS 2005 and having some problems printing. I have a report that has only 7 columns and while in layout mode, the body of the report only has a width of not even 7 inches. I have made my left margin 0.2 in, RM at 0 in, TM at 0 in and BM at 0 in as well and yet when I print, I get an additional blank page. All my records print in the first page just fine but I get the additional blank page. This also happens to me on a different report when I change the settings for landscape printing. I am able to fit all the columns in one page using landscape but get an additional blank page for every page that is printed. So instead of printing just two pages of records, I get 2 additional blank pages.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.



How to GET the Height of a Table programmatically in SSRS 2005?


Im fairly new to SSRS and all attempts to align my table at the Bottom of the page has failed. (similiar to a footer)

I cannot use a footer to do this because the footer allocates space on every page even tho i require the data on the last page only.

I have tried the solutions given to me on the following link: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sqlreportingservices/thread/08785944-923e-445a-b7de-b1062ea97879/

Unfortunately i cannot seem to GET the Height of the preceeding content (which is in a table).

Any help will be much appreciated!


SSRS: Printing multiple values within one cell on a single row


Hi I'm new to SSRS and SQL in general.  I'm trying to publish a report that is easy to read, but I end up printing rows that are largely redundant. Consider the following tables:

Table 1: PersonID; Name; Age

1, Tom, 88
2, Stacey, 16

Table 2: PersonID; Color

1, Blue
1, Red
1, Green
2, Jade

 I would like a report that prints something like this:

SSRS 2005 Dynamic Table Generation



I am attempting to build a report that allows the user to select the value of 4 different parameters. The final parameter allows the user to select multiple values. My question is as follows. Based on the users selections, is there a way to generate the required number of tables dynamically?

For instance, if the input for the final parameter is A, B, & C can the appriopriate number of tables be generated for the same dataset (Sales) without having to build a table for SalesA, SalesB, and SalesC? Or do I have to build the maximum number of tables and use an expression to determine visibility based on the parameters. Note: max number of possible tables is more than 100.





SSRS 2005 display totals on each page and the last page



 I have a requirment to display the page number on each page with a total number of records per page like this

Page 1 of 2  ---------------------------Total records: 11

Then on the last page I need to display the page number, the page Total and the grand total records fields like this:

Page 2 of 2--------------------------- Total records: 10 ---------------------------Grand Total records: 21

I tried different combinations but got errors like global execution field cannot be used in the report body,
a text box could not be used in the report footer etc. 

Thanks for your help.

Is Conditional Subscription possible in SSRS 2005?


Hi Guys,

Is there a way to set up a subscription that will send e-mails based on the contents of a report? For example, I want to schedule a daily subscription that will only send an e-mail if the report contains data, otherwise it will do nothing for that day. i.e If the report has more than one row, it should send the mail otherwise it should not send the mail.....

Is it possible in SSRS 2005 or is there any other way to do it???

How to deal with NULL values in a SQL table


 Hi all

In order to add/update/delete data from a table I build 2 classes: 1 class containing all the table fields and another class with methods to add/insert/update/delete records. I am learning how to avoid errors when your table must use SQL NULL values. One error is when I call my UPDATE method (see below):

  public void UpdateItem(OcItemConstraintDetails item)
  SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(connectionString);
  SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("ItemConstraints_Update", con);
  cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

  cmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@itemConstraintId", SqlDbType.Int, 4));
  cmd.Parameters["@itemConstraintId"].Value = item.ItemConstraintId;

  cmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@path", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 150));
  cmd.Parameters["@path"].Value = item.Path;

if you watch the SQL profiler trace you will see that I am passing a value of 'default' ;so that causes me problems.

exec ItemConstraints_Update @itemConstraintId=1,@path=default

With that said, what are the best practices when your SQL table accepts NULL values and when:
- you are passing an empty value to your stored procedure;
