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.

A connection could not be made to the report server - Problem deploying an SSRS report from Business

I’m having trouble with what seems to be a common issue for people, regarding deployment of an SSRS report from Business Intelligence Development Studio. Unfortunately none of the solution I have seen posted here (and elsewhere) have been able to help me so far.   Two of my collegaues can both deploy with no problem, and I am using exactly the same Target destinations as them (TargetDataSourceFolder, TargetReportFolder, TargetServerURL).   I have posted the error message below, which from my basic understaning would indicate, I think, a security issue (perhaps something local to my PC, or user account)   Has anyone experienced this particular issue who might be able to help?   Best wishes, Jamie TITLE: Microsoft Report Designer ------------------------------ A connection could not be made to the report server http://turpin-net.turpin-bg.local/Reportserver. ------------------------------ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Client found response content type of 'text/html; charset=utf-8', but expected 'text/xml'.

SSRS Report printing blank first page




I have a pretty basic SSRS report that has a table header, body (with a table), and table footer.  When I view the report in normal layout,all is well.  However, when I switch to print layout only the table header and table footer are displayed on the first page.  I don't see any of my table data until page two.  So, this is adding an additional page to the beginning of the report and it's make a 17 page report 18 pages.  And because I am including the page numbers on the report, this is noticeable to the users of the report obviously.  Any feedback on things I could do or check to remove this blank page would be greatly appreciated. 



Font/letter spacing issue when printing from SSRS 2008 report page


We are developing reports in SSRS 2008.  When printing from the SSRS report page, we are seeing that that some text is "clumping" together or spaced oddly. I have tried a variety of printers so it's not printer-specific. If you export from the SSRS page to PDF or to Word and then print, everything prints as expected.

Nothing is as good as real text/names/data, but to reproduce, simply create several text boxes with...

I used several common fonts...
Arial, 10 pt (SSRS 2008 default)
Times New Roman, 12 pt (Office 2003 default)
Calibri, 11 pt (Office 2007 default)
Verdana, 11 pt
Tahoma, 11 pt

In the example above, I used normal weight, nothing fancy... If you use bold and underline, which is common for a page/column header or footer, this issue is even more apparent.

It feels similar to the following issue: https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/482312/ssrs-report-font-rendering-issue

A workaround would obviously be to export to PDF and then print, but these are steps that our end users shouldn't have to (and won't want to) put up with to produce reports/invoices/etc. that ultimately go

SSRS 2005 Heading Repeat problem.


I have a SSRS 2005 report using a table to display data.  I am using a parameter to change visibility of the first column depending upon the sort selected, so I am also using group headings to display the column headings (instead of a page heading) so that the column headings line up properly whether the first column is displayed or not.  The group heading lines are marked to repeat, and one contains a dataset field as heading information.  The table has multiple detail lines defined, and the last line contains a text field (memo field) which can contain LOTS of data.  If this field contains enough data that it takes an entire report page, the group heading is not displayed on this page, so all the column headings are gone for this page.  That is my problem.

There is a lot going on in this report, and the design, as it stands now, accomplishes all I need (dataset field in heading, optional column display with headings, proper sorting and breaking) with the exception of when this text field fills an entire page...in this case, the headings disappear.

Any thoughts on getting around this?  Thanks!

SSRS 2005/2008 - Chart with bar graph not generating on subsequent executions of report even with mo


For a report executed from Report Manager that has a bar chart component, regenerating the report via refresh or view with same input parameters either gives a different result that is garbled or an empty chart (2008) or no chart at all (2005). I have the report set up to not do any caching, so that does not seem to be the issue. Is there some chart option I may need to set to get the proper chart display.

Report conversion from SSRS 2005 to SSRS 2008


I am converting reports developed in SSRS 2005 into SSRS 2008. In the report design interface I have several rows and columans of data that calculate count or rate. In addition to rows and columns, I have around ten hidden tablixes in which report expression calls hidden codes inside tablix to perform calculation with main report. My problem is when I set hidden tablix propert into hide, I am not getting correct calculation in my report.  when I change tablix property from hidden to show I will get correct calculation but I do not want to see those hidden tablixes in my report page. Is there any way  you can still call expressions inside hidden tablixes without turning on tablix property show in SSRS 2008? Is it a bug in SSRS 2008 reporting system? Please help me out!!

My operating system is windows vista.



YTD Variance on Matrix Report - SSRS 2005


I am trying to set up a report that pulls how many patients were referred to our physicians by other physicians in town.  I have a matrix report set up with parameters so that at the end of each month users can select the month and year and it will pull data year to date for the selected year and the year prior to the selected year.  The report ends up looking a little something like this

           CurrentYear     PrevYear

Phys1  3                      4

Phys2  5                      2

Phys2  6                      1


We need to have at least one column to calculate teh variance between the two years and possible a second for % variance.  I have been scouring the web and most answers seem to apply to 2008 but unfortunately this is a 2005 server.  Any help or pointers in the right direction are appreciated.

SSRS 2000 reports when upgraded to 2005 report with subreport really really slow


We recently upgraded a report server and corresponding reports from SQL Server 2000 (reports 2003) to SQL Server 2005. After upgrade one of our reports which use two subreport is very very slow.

The sp's used for these all these reports are fast. All the sp's together takes about 40 secs.

Both in the BIDS environment as well as the report site the report is very slow.

We are using a database in which data is inserted through replicatoin. In all our sp's we have given 'with nolock' along with the table names.

Can anyone please help me here?

SSRS 2005 Matrix results affected by defaulting being set on report parameter?


We discovered some very odd matrix behavior a couple days ago and just today found out what in the RDL seems to be causing the issue.  The issue is that certain cells in the matrix will not be populated if a certain report parameter is defaulted.

The basics:  A matrix report with 6 report parms two of which are passed to the underlying procedure call.  There are 6 datasets behind the report.  4 are related to getting date and timespan information to allow for parameter defaulting.  1 gets a list of customers to populate a selection drop down and the last gets the data.

The data query takes a customer name and an end date.   Via the report parameters the end date parm is defaulted based on a dataset which is chained through the other parms and associated datasets.

The matrix is used to show a months worth of activity by day.  There are two int32 data points in each matrix cell one is a total and one is a failure count.  The data as returned by the reporting proc is already summarized so no aggregate is needed in the matrix.  However, using SUM or not in the matrix cell makes no difference to the strange outcome.

When the report is run with the end date parameter being defaulted one of the rows will incorrectly show 16 cells.  The cells appear as if there is no data.  However, if the proc

Separate Date and Time report parameters in SSRS 2005



Is it possible to declare separate report parameters in SSRS 2005 as Date and Time?

I want the user to be able to enter a date and a time.

When I declare the parameters in my stored procedure as datetime, in SSRS the parameter just shows as a Date only.
