Issue while migrating reports from SSRS 2005 to SSRS 2008

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :
 

We developed reports for SSRS 2005 using SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio (Visual Studio 2005).

 

We migrated these reports for SSRS 2008 using SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio (Visual Studio 2008) by opening the Reports project folder in SSRS 2008.

 

After migration when the report is ran without any changes made in the design mode we get the correct output.

 

The issue arises when we try to edit the report in the Design mode. In design mode, it shows only 1 'Tablix Filter' Value and loses the rest of the 'Tablix Filter' values. Specifically, If we try and edit the Tablix properties (In Design mode) all the values in the 'Filters' property disappear.

SSRS in place upgrade from 2005 to 2008 issue

  

I did an inplace upgrade of SSRS 2005 to 2008 and now the reports are throwing the following error. The reports were all working fine and there is a datasource with the name 'Data Source Name' without the '_'.  Please help.

  • An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)
    • The data source 'Data_Source_Name' cannot be found. (rsDataSourceNotFound)

Issue when migrating Reporting service reports from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008

  

Hi Friends,

We are migrating reporting service reports from SQL server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 and facing below login issue.

We got a virtual machine with 2003 server and got SQL Server 2008 installed with reporting service.

I was able to publish my 2005 reports using VS 2005 easily.


1) But when I try to run the reports I am getting below errors at my website home page.

The permissions granted to user 'DomainName\MachineName' are insufficient for performing this operation. (rsAccessDenied)

I could not get why there is no user name in above error and how it says machine name does not have permissioin?

There should be at least some user id mentioned as per me.

What could be the reason of above error?

2) Also when I try to run reports using Reports website (i.e. http://server/Reports URL), I get below errro in executing the reports.

"An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)
Cannot create a connection to data source 'ReportSource'. (rsErrorOpeningConnection)
Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'."

Here the question is how it is picking up Anonymous logon. I thought it might be using Network Sevice acct to access reports.

What should I be doing to resolve above errors?

3) Also one more point about the s

Issues with Migrating SSRS 2005 to SSRS 2008

  

Hi All,

Our Team working on migration of reports. But in our SSRS 2005 reports RDL's they added small piece of code(Highlighted)  in

Shared dataset in SSRS 2008 R2 running on SSAS 2005

  
I am trying to create a report in SSRS 2008 R2 using SSAS 2005 as a datasource. My dataset has a date parameter. When I create an embedded dataset in my report everything works fine, but when I create a shared dataset with the exact same mdx query, I get the following error: An error occurred during local report processing. The definition of the report 'xxxx' is invalid. The Value expression for the report parameter 'DateCalendarHierarchy' contains an error: [BC30034] Bracketed identifier is missing closing ']'. Does anybody have any ideas? Is this a bug? Thanks, Louis

Schedule reports with integrated authentication SSRS 2008

  
Hi All,  Having an issue with SSRS 2008 at the moment, trying to setup subscriptions. Our system is configured so that any one of 10 users can login to the SSRS website using their windows domain account, and then launch report builder to design and save reports.  This all works very well, however, they have a problem when trying to setup subscriptions - the famous "Subscriptions cannot be created because the credentials used to run the report are not stored....." What the message says is true - the credentials are not stored as they are supplied by the user when they login to report builder. Is the /any/ workaround at all that doesn't involve storing the credentials?  It seems totally crazy that they cannot be prompted for them when setting up the subscription.  For this application its 100% essential to make the user provide their credentials when running reports, because they each see a filtered subset of the data in the report model (this is controlled DB side depeding on the login account), so their domain account needs to be passed to SQL server to enable this filtering to work.  If we saved their credentials then they would see all the data..and thats nasty. The only workaround I can come up with would be to create  a separate datasource for each user and upload a separate model, but thats really nasty to be hones

SSRS 2008 SP1 - Enabling "My Reports" allows users delete reports in folders they should not be able

  
Issue: Users that have “My Reports” SSRS Role assigned to them can delete reports in other “shared” folders. My understanding was that they will be able to do the tasks specified only  in the “My Reports” workspace not everywhere. I have “My Reports” enabled via SSMS. Users have “My Reports” role assigned to them at the root level. My SSRS Role “My Reports” has only the following tasks assigned: 1.       View Reports 2.       Manage reports 3.       View Folders 4.       Manage Folders To test, I'm using Development version of SQL Server 2008 SP1. Thanks in advance, Martina

Where are the 2008 SSRS sample reports?

  
All the CodePlex 2008 links now go to the 2008R2 examples. Are the 2008 report samples still around somewhere?

Migrating from Crystal Reports to SSRS

  
Hi, we are currently evaluating SSRS and its features for making a decision on migrating from Crystal. I have read up on SSRS a bit and just need some confirmation on some of my findings. My company develops Windows applications, distributable via MSI files. The backend is SQL Server 2008. We are currently using Crystal Reports to display reports to the end user using the Crystal .NET viewer control. Crystal Reports are saved as .rpt files and contained in the msi file, therefore deployed to the clients. As we are considering migrating away from Crystal, I had a look at SSRS. It is my understanding that there are two ways of using reports: First, in local mode, which is similar to the way Crystal works: Client-side deployed report files. However, unlike Crystal, the application has to retrieve the data for the report from the database and pass a dataset to the viewer control whereas in Crystal, you just point the report viewer to the database you want to use and it pulls the data itself. The other mode, remote or server mode, has the reports stored in the report server (i.e. SQL Server). The viewer control will be set to the URL of the report, and the report then pulls the data from the SQL database. I am unsure to how you could deploy reports onto the Report Server using a MSI package; it sounds like quite a bit of work as the only way I have found by now is to consume webs

Issue with Enable and Disable Parameters in SSRS 2005

  
Hi Guys, I am currently facing an issue with Enabling and Disabling Parameters in SSRS 2005. Here is my scenario. I am having the following 4 parameters - ParamType (has values 1,2,3), ParamMonth, ParamStartDate, ParamEndDate Now What I want is When I select ParamType = 1 and 2 then ParamMonth should be enabled and ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should be disabled. When I select ParamType = 3 then ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should be enabled and ParamMonth should be disabled. I have done google search on this issue and found out that this is not possible at run time. Is there any alternative for this issue? If the above is not possible, I would like to get atleast in this way : When I select ParamType = 1 and 2 then ParamMonth should show the values (from dataset named MonthDataSet and default should be the latest Month) and ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should show as NULL. When I select ParamType = 3, then I need to enter ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate values manually or pick via datepicker and ParamMOnth should show as NULL. I am not sure whether this is possible or not....but just trying to get in some way. Here is the query used in MonthDataSet : Select Month_Code, Month_Name from MonthTable. Thanks

Character spacing issue SSRS 2005 custom font

SSRS 2008- redirect to /Reports virtual directory?

  
We have just configured a new SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 server. So far, everything is going well, with the exception of one thing: we want anyone who hits the root of the webserver to be redirected to the /Reports virtual directory. So, if the user enters http://servername.domain.com/ it would redirect to http://servername.domain.com/reports. In SSRS 2005, it was easy to configure IIS to do this, but with SSRS 2008, I cannot figure out how to make this change. Help?

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!!

Barchart migiration problem when I move it from SSRS 2005 to SSRS 2008

  
Hi I am having a barchart report in ssrs 2005 which  is going to dynamically generate the bars depending on the input parameters for example if we give 15 as input it is going  to generate 15 bar on the chart and if we give 25 as input it is going to generate 25 bars on the report.Report is working well in ssrs 2005 but when I migrate it from ssrs 2005 to ssrs 2008 and run the report it is working well when i select 15 as input it is showing me 15 bar with the names on x-axis and y-axis.But when I select 25 as input it is generating bar chart  and I see multiples of 5 like(5,10,15,20)  bars are getting the names displayed on the y-axis and rest of the names are not displayed on chart.I was trying to expand the bar chart  and trying to see the different.When I expand report is spliting into two pages and I see multiples of 5 like(5,10,15,20) bars are getting the names displayed and rest of the names are not displayed.So can anyone suggest me any solution.   Thanks in Advance
