Refresh of a Report Builder Dataset does NOT show newly added field

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :
I'm working with Report Builder 2.0 (we don't plan on getting SQL 2008 R2 - so NO 3.0 for us!) and have found that if I have an existing report using an existing stored procedure (it has 4 existing parameters) and I add a new field to the stored procedure it will not refresh the data set.  I have gone to the DataSet properties and executed the query(SPROC) where it does show the new field (so I know the sproc will execute), but when I click OK and hit Refresh Fields it stops responding.  I also tried the same steps without the Refresh Fields and still stops responding.  I also tried to add the field name and it errored out as invalid.

The only work around I've found is to

Report Builder 3.0 - Map point layer is not applying filter on a dataset



I have a Report Builder 3.0 report which includes a Map object and a shared dataset (SQL against a SQL 2008 R2 database).

The Map contains a point layer which is populated by a Shared dataset in my report.  I've added some filters to this dataset (on text fields) but the Map continues to show all records and doesn't apply the filter.

I've tried the following but none work:

- Converting the Shared dataset to an embedded dataset

- Only filtering one column

- Combination of setting filters from hardcoded values and parameterised values

The Map never picks up the filter.  If I display the records from the shared dataset on a table then the filter is applied to the tabular results so I know the filter is being applied in at least one place.

I do have a workaround which is to add parameters to the SQL in the shared dataset.  Then pass parameters from my Map report to the shared dataset.  This guarantees that the parameters will be applied.  However, I would still like our users to be able to use filters for the Map.





Dataset field list will not refresh

Using VS 2003, my dataset field list will NOT refresh when I hit the refresh button, and the field list shows NO fields!  If I switch the dataset type to TEXT and enter EXEC <storedprocname>, I get fields in the list, but when I switch the type to Stored Procedure (so it can accept parameters), the field list goes blank, and WILL NOT refresh, even though I can RUN the dataset and see the data returned by the stored proc.  How do I get my field list back, so that my report will compile and run correctly?  Or do I have to wait for SQL Server and Reporting Services 2008 SP3??

refresh dataset in Report?


i was building report using visual web developer express 2005 and sql express 2005 (with RS). There doesn't seems to be a way to update the binding dataset in the rdlc file.

I manage to update the ds by refreshing the schema in object data source and rebind it in reportviewer. But the new fields are not reflected in the rdlc. Any way to refresh it? I was forced to edit the file in notepad.

Getting SSRS Report DataSet Field list from C#


Hi All,


1. We have requirement where users can build there own SSRS Reports and integrate it with the existing system dynamically.

2. We have an Existing Application (Called APP1), our approach is user will build the report as per there requirement and from APP1 we have report configuration screen when user will select the report file to import to our system.

3. While doing importing, we have special requirement like

3.1 Retrieve the all fields from the Report DataSource and display to the user

3.2 User configures that what values they want to filter when the report is shown from the application. ex: employee information is      displayed in the report, DataSet query is "select empid,empname,..... * from employee" 

        3.3 from APP1 when user gives the report we have to dynamically load the report and get the fields from the dataset, so user can                configure like this, when the report is shown report must ask for parameter value for empid .


Report Builder returning #Error value in empty fields and working with Date field


Hey guys,

I am trying to build a report using the date field from CRM and only wanting to return the date I am using this expression "=Fields!new_date.Value.ToShortDateString()" but when there is an empty fiel I get #Error. How do I solve this?

Also is there anyway to return the date field with the actual month showing instead of the numerical value? i.e. instead of 1/31/2010 Have it show January 31, 2010 (Doesn't have to be exactly in that format, but want the name value for the month.)

Report Builder Filter shows Field as Date Type =Text instead of Date


My Data was created by retrieving ODBC data - using PowerPivot for Excel 2010, and has Birthdate defined as a Data Type = "Date".  This was uploaded to SharePoint, and a New Dataset was created to point at it.

I'm using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Report Builder 3.0.  I tried to filter this data on Birthdate, but when I go into the Filter, and specify the field that was defined as DataType = "Date" in PowerPivot - Report Builder changes the type to "Text", and gray's out the field so that I can't change it to "Date".

If I create an Expression as Cdate(Birthdate.Value), it lets me change the Data Type to "Date", and works appropriately, but we don't want to have to do this with every date field.

Why doesn't Report Builder see this field as a Date ? 

ToolBox do not show newly added controls after restart


Recently i am working in VS2008 installed in windows xp SP2. In the toolbox i added a new tab and added some third party controls in the toolbox, by using "Choose Item" dialog.. I also added Ajax ToolKit to the tool box. It worked fine and i could drag n drop controls.

But then if i restart VS2008, all the tabs i created and controls in it goes off and disappears including Ajax Toolkit. Each time i restart it, I have to have add those controls newly???

Include a Crystal Report in .NET Web Service for Dynamic In-Memory-Only DataSet



I would like to use Crystal Reports in a .NET web service.  Ultimately I would like to convert my report document to a PDF and then return the PDF as a byte array. 

My .NET DataSet is generated dynamically at run-time.  It consists of four related tables.  Since my DataSet does not have a physical datasource, I created an XML Schema file.  I then added the XML Schema file to the web service project with Add Existing Item. 

A solution for working with a dynamic in-memory DataSet exists for ASP.NET web sites and client-based forms.  I tried to use this method as it is published.  When that didn't work I tried creating the report and XML Schema directly in the web service project, but that also didn't work.


The problem is apparent when you try to set the datasource.......the code bombs on the call to SetDataSource(DataSet) with the message
ex = {"The data source object is invalid."}

Crystal Reports would save me a lot

Workflow field not being added to list or views when adding a workflow


This problem just started happening in my entire site collection.  Anytime I associate a workflow to any list or doc lib the Workflow column that shows the status and links to the history is not beind added to the list or any views and is nowhere to be found.   Here's exactly what I'm doing:

1.  Go the List settings -> workflow settings -> add a workflow (for this example the OOB approval workflow)

2.  After adding I go to the List, the workflow column doesn't exist.

3.  I go to "modify view", and the workflow column is not listed in the available columns.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

SSRS 2008 R2 and sharepoint 2007 report builder problems


I upgraded our enterprise sql server 2008 to sql server 2008 r2 last weekend.  Along with this i installed the report builder 3.0 on the servers as well and the updated ssrs add in for sharepoint.  The upgrade went fine, no errors that i could find.  The problem is now when i go to a library that has the report builder content type enabled and click report builder report under new it does not load report builder 3.0.

I updated the custom report builder url in central administration from /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_2_0_0_0.application to /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_3_0_0_0.application

however when i do click the new report builder report it kicks me over to http://company.com/ReportServer_MossEnt  which itemizes out each individual sharepoint site in the farm.

Is the integration of ssrs 2008 r2, sharepoint 2007 and report builder 3.0 work?  did i install the wrong version of the report builder add in?  The above is the only problem i am having now.

all servers are server 2008, 64 bit and moss 2007 enterprise with sp2 & april 2010 cu
