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

the dilema is I can use standalone report builder 3.0 to create report from sharepoint list data source. But I cannot upload any report(not just sharepoint source) from report builder 3.0(standalone) to report server

I can create report model in sql BIDS for report server and using builting report builder 1.0 to create a report, but the data provider in BIDS only shows SQLclient and Oracleclient

Sharepoint list as Report Data Source

My current environment is Sharepoint 2007 with SSRS 2008 in Sharepoint Integrated Mode. SSRS 2008 uses trusted authentication to communicate to Sharepoint 2007. Sharepoint 2007 is configured to use NTLM authentication (configured with a domain account). My settings within Central Admin are Authentication Type: Windows IIS authentication settings: Integrated windows authentication with NTLM. My question is: Do I need to configure Sharepoint to use kerberos to use Sharepoint Lists as a Report Data Source?  

The report cannot be opened because the data source associated with it is not a report model.


i tried to open a report i created in sql business intelligence development studio in the report builder in wss3 and it gave me this error:

Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportBuilder.ReportModel.Report: The report 'http://servername:port#/Reports/report.rdl' cannot be opened because the data source 'http://servername:port#/DataSource Library/datasource.rsds' associated with it is not a report model.

This report was not created in Report Builder. Try opening this report in Report Designer instead.

can i fix this so i can open my reports in report builder?


MDW Disk Usage for Database Report Error - A data source has not been supplied for the data source D

Hello, On the MDW Disk Usage Collection Set report, I get the following error when I click on a database hyperlink. A data source has not been supplied for the data source DS_TraceEvents SQL profiler shows the following SQL statements are executed (I've replaced the database name with databaseX) 1. exec sp_executesql N'SELECT dtb.name AS [Name] FROM master.sys.databases AS dtb WHERE (dtb.name=@_msparam_0)',N'@_msparam_0 nvarchar(4000)',@_msparam_0=N'databaseX' this returns zero rows as databaseX does not exist on my MDW central server, but is a database on a target server (i.e. one that is being monitored and uploaded into the MDW central server). 2. USE [datatbaseX] this produces the following error: Msg 911, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 Database 'databaseX' does not exist. Make sure that the name is entered correctly. why is the report looking for the database on my server? thanks Jag Environment: MDW (Management Data Warehouse) on SQL 2008 R2  

Connecting a Sharepoint Custom list with an external Data-source

Hi I am planning to connect a Sharepoint Custom list with an external Data-source. External DB will be in Access 2007 format.

Is there a way to solve this? -saumil

What are my options when I need to create a report with data from multiple sources?

Hello all,  What are my options when I want to create a report that will get records from multiple data sources based on data from a parameter? The user will enter the customer ID, I have to check that ID against 5 different data sources. Have you guys done anything similar? Should I leverage SSIS on this request, adding an extra layer of complexity? Should I do this all from SSRS? What are my options?

Excel External Table Data can only create new SharePoint List when Exporting from Excel?

I have a SQL Query that I refresh everyday in Excel. I want to be able to export this list over to a SharePoint list right after my refresh in Excel but I can only Export to a SharePoint list only once. If I try to export again to the same list then it will give me the error "The specified list name is already in use on this server. You must rename the list before publishing it to the server." I have web parts that have connections to this list and I do not want to export my Query to a new SharePoint list everyday. Does anyone know a way around this issue?

Cannot create a connection to data source !!!! SSRS 2005

I cannot get this error resolve either for myself or any users, and I'm actually part of the Admin group!  Furthermore, a user with whom I'm tring allow to view this report keeps getting prompted for their windows username and password.  I thought that since this datasource was set to Windows Authentification that it would just pass it through? I'm pulling my hair out at this point: Screen Shots: http://www.webfound.net/datasource_connection.jpg http://www.webfound.net/datasource_connection2.jpg http://www.webfound.net/datasource_connection3.jpg Also As far as I know, I've given sufficient permissions to the right logins and right users on my SQL Databases and related stored procs that the datasets (not datasource) run An error has occurred during report processing. Cannot create a connection to data source 'datasourcename'. For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors

Setting Local Report Data Source

I am a college professor and am updating my undergraduate database course to use Reporting Services as the reporting tool.  The student labs cannot run IIS so I assume that using server-based reports is out and am looking at using local reports and the VB ReportViewer control. For several reasons (waaayyy too long to list here) I do not wish to use the drag-and-drop datasets that seem to be the core of the ADO.Net 2005 architecture.  Instead I prefer to create connections, commands, and datasets in code and to set data binding and manage data updates in code.  All command objects map to SQL Server stored procedures. I need to be able to do the same thing with reporting services local reports but have run into a brick wall in getting the report and/or report viewer to recognize a dataset table created in code. I would like to do the following (which worked very well in VB 2003 using Crystal Reports): 1. Design report--I am willing to accept the requirement to manually set the Value property of controls since I don't want to set data sources to .xsd files. 2. Instantiate a report object at run time and set it's data source to a dataset table.  The underlying query that fills the table would have to contain all columns needed by the report's controls. 3. Set the report object to be the LocalReport for a ReportViewer control. Can anyone point me to a tutorial or walk-through tha

Status of Accessing Nested Objects in Data Source of Local Report Does Not Function


We recently upgraded out platform to .NET 4.  We are also using Microsoft Reporting dlls.  Unfortunately, we found that the upgrade broke all of our reports.  Researching the cause, we found this article:


It seems that this issue has been open for some time now and I have not seen a good workaround (except for the shim class which is not really feasible for us).  Can I please get a status update for this?  Is there some other type of resolution?

Thank you,

can't create oracle data source



I'm trying to create an Oracle data source object, using Sharepoint Designer 2010, and getting nothing but vague errors.

Here's what I'm doing:

1. In Data Source Library I tried to establish a new database connection.

2. Checkmark the "Use custom connection string"

3. Selected "Microsoft .NET Framework Data Provider for Oracle" OR "Microsoft .NET Framework Data Provider for OLE DB" and specified the Connection String as

Data Source=<<TNS ENTRY>>;User Id=<<>>;Password=<<>>;Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle

4. After defining the string I clicked Ok.

5. After click Next it gives the message “The selected authentication option saves the user name and password as clear text in the data connection. Other authors of this website can access this information.”

6. I clicked on Ok and it gives me the message “Server Error: An error occurred while retrieving the list of table from root database. The query you are trying to execute contains syntax errors.”

7. The "Select Database and Table, View, or Stored Procedure" step comes up, with a Database of "root", and no tables listed.

Does a "root" table have any meaning in Oracle? Why aren't I getting a list o
