difference running from query designer to report preview

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

So I have a simple query and parameter in query designer and I run it and it does what I expect.  This is a simple test query/report and I'm just trying to learn how to get parameters working like I'd like.  The single parameter is there to filter by year-month ...and it does in designer.   When I go into report preview, I get the parameter list of values I expect but wne I go "view report" I get:

Query execution has failed for dataset "GetInfo".

Query (1,72) the restrictions imposed by the CONSTRAINED flag in the STRTOSET were violated.

Here is the dataset for GetInfo (which runs in designer):


And here is the dataset for the parameter:

 {} ON 0, NONEMPTY([Pay Date].[Year-Month].Members, [Measures].[Pay Amount])
ON 1 FROM [Pays Data] 

I did change the generated dataset on the parameter since by default it would list all the year-month combinations

Adding a table or view multiple times when building a query with BI Report Designer and Report Build

How can I add a table/view multiple times to a single query by using BI Report Designer or Report Builder 3.0? In Report Designer I managed (workaround) to add one table multiple times by creating multiple Named Queries and having the same SELECT. Still I don't know how to add one table multiple times in Report Builder 3.0.

Report Builder 3.0 for Oracle with Graphical Query Designer

Is there a possibility to have Graphical Query Designer in Report Builder 3.0 in case the connection is made to an Oracle database (through .NET Provider for Oracle for example)? I need to offer to the end users the means to build their own reports. Every user has associated a group of database objects and as soon as users are added new database objects are added. Therefore I cannot create a model because it needs to be changed frequently and the model in this case would contain objects to which the user does not have access. The only option is that the user should create his report query in a friendly manner. So the query text editor is of no good in this case.   I've found in documentation that for Oracle and other databases there is no Graphical Query Designer: In Report Builder 2.0, to specify a query for data source types Oracle, OLE DB, ODBC, and Teradata, you must use the text-based query designer (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd220607(SQL.100).aspx). Is there a way to have Graphical Query Designer in Report Builder 3.0 or should I look for other products? In case Report Builder cannot solve this problem can you make some product recommendations - ad-hoc web reporting for .NET?

while running new report, doesn't indicate if previous report preview page is open



i am using asp.net to run the reports from the parameter page.

When i run a report by passing report parameters, the reporting services report opens in the report_preview.aspx page.

 Now, if i do not close this report_preview.aspx page and go to new parameter page and run another report, the report_preview.aspx page doesn't show the new report. It just refreshes the old report.

This can be because, when the run button of any parameter page is executed, it opens the report_preview.aspx page by executing the following query under page_load button.

            ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, typeof(string), "openNewWindow", "window.open('../Report_Preview.aspx','ReportPreview','scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,')", true);

But clients get confused for everytime to close previous preview page and open the new report.

IS there any way to handle it please

Is there any way to generate the new ssrs report on the same report_preview.aspx page by refreshing it ( by replacing previous report by the new one) ?

Preview Crystal Report from ASP.net without passing parameters


Hi Everyone,

Sorry couldn't think of any better Subject..

I am developing a User Reports Module using C#.Net using Visual Studio 2005. Basic purpose of this module is to allow user to be able to run their own Crystal Reports. i.e. if Users have their own Crystal Reports specific to their needs then we allow them to save them and view them from our user reports module.

So when user saves any report we save it on server and save the Physical path of that report in database. Now when user tries to view the report I get the location from database and load it. Which works ok. The issue now is those reports which have got parameters. 

I am not saving any information about parameters in their reports. So I do not have any information about Report Parameters.

This same application exists in VB6. What that VB application does is opens the Crystal Report and then Crystal report asks for needed parameters exactly as it will do if we try to open a crystal report using crystal report and preview it from there it asks for parameter values. 

How can I do that in C#.Net.

VB has got code like this

SSRS 2008 R2 - Query builder freezes and needs to be shut down Report Builder 3 when attempting quie

Hi, In SSRS, using Report Builder 3.0 (SSRS R2), after choosing a Report Model as the report's embedded data source, launched "Query Deisinger…" from GUI to build data source in report.  First 1-2 attempts at querying underlying data source (Oracle back-end), are successful, but later attempts freeze application to the point where application freezes and overall Report Builder application needs to be forcibly shut-down. This system freeze has occurred when referencing tables containing a very small number of records as well as larger data sets.  Suspect that application freezing may be caused by timing-out of connection to back-end database. but I am not sure. Any suggestion to solve this issue? Thanks   Environment - Distributed deployment Server1(report_srv) --Windows server 2003R2 64bit, Installed sql server 2008R2 reporting service, configuration tools Server2 (report_db_srv) --windows server 2003r2 64bit, sql server 2005 for report server database

Having problem accessing multi-choice parameter in SQL Query in Report.

Hi, I have a report with a multi-choice input parameter. My report contains a dataset that uses CHARINDEX on this multichoice parameter. The dataset query is in text, not in stored procedure. When I run the report I get "the charindex requires 2-3 arguments the reason being that the SQL is run as follows (You can see the multi-choice list screws up the string: exec sp_executesql N'Select test.Region [Region], test.Location [Location], nvarchar3 [Year], nvarchar4 [StatisticType], nvarchar5 [StatisticType2], ntext2 [Detail], float1 [Amount]   from [WSS_Content].[dbo].[AllUserData] UD   inner join [WSS_Content].[dbo].[AllLists] AL on AL.tp_ID = UD.tp_ListId and AL.tp_Title=''Statistics''   left outer join   (       Select UD.tp_id [ID],nvarchar1 [Region],     nvarchar3 [Location]   from [WSS_Content].[dbo].[AllUserData] UD   inner join [WSS_Content].[dbo].[AllLists] AL on AL.tp_ID = UD.tp_ListID and AL.tp_Title=''Regions''   where UD.tp_ListId = AL.tp_ID   and UD.tp_ListId = AL.tp_ID   and UD.tp_DeleteTransactionId = 0x0   and tp_IsCurrentVersion = 1   ) test on test.id = UD.int1   where UD.tp_ListId = AL.tp_ID   and UD.tp_ListId = AL.tp_ID   and UD.tp_DeleteTransactionId = 0x0   and tp_IsCurrentVersion = 1  &n

BIDS Query Designer very slow in VS 2008

I am in the process of upgrading my Report Server projects from 2005 to 2008.  These reports use an Analysis Services 2005 data source and have queries that are anywhere from 20 to 100 lines of MDX.  After upgrading a report, when I open or save a dataset in the Query Designer, it takes up to 20 seconds.  In 2005, this would happen almost instantly. Running SQL Server Profiler, I see that there is an extensive number (600+) of Discover events going on with the Analysis Services server while the Query Designer loads. My version of Visual Studio is 9.0.30729.1 SP and I am running Windows XP SP2. Thanks, Mitch

BIDS Query Designer very slow

BIDS Query Designer seems to be very slow while saving the query or opening the query designer when you've got quite a lot of Query Parameters. When I remove all the query parameters, the query designer seems to be running smoothly. Editing a query with about 10 to 15 query parameters takes ages this way! Is there something I can do about this?!
