Displaying a Parameter Value in the report footer that corresponds with the parameterized data on ea

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I've got a report that has only one parameter, it determines the department (or departments) to base the report on, the parameter is set to allow for multiple values. The report returns only on page per department, so the report could be anywhere from one to a hundred pages, one page per department. I've included a text box in the report footer that displays the report name and the parameter value, the expression looks like this: =Globals!ReportName & " For Department " & Parameters!Dept.Value(0)    I know that in this example the zero inside of the parenthesis of the parameter value is what is returning the actual value when the report is rendered, and I understand that the zero is value in the array of parameter values. What I'm looking to do is adapt this expression so that the parameter value rendered on each page corresponds with the data (departement) displayed on the specific page. So using the example of the data, if the user selected three departments in the parameter drop down, then each page that displayed the different department’s information would also display that departments name in the page footer text box. I'm thinking that each time a page is rendered that there is a group or global variable that can be called to provide this dynamically but I can't seem to find the information. Appreciate any help, Dan

Using ASP.NET 3.5's ListView and DataPager Controls: Displaying Data with the ListView

Prior to ASP.NET 3.5, developers who needed to display a set of records could choose between the GridView, DataList, and Repeater controls. The GridView provides rich data features, but has a very boxy layout; the DataList and Repeater allow for a more flexible layout, but lack the "point and click" data features found in the GridView, DetailsView, and FormView controls. The ListView bridges the gap between layout flexibility and built-in data features.

This article, the first in a series of articles on the ListView and DataPager controls, looks at the ListView's many available templates and illustrates how to display data. Read on to learn more!

Parameter Data changing between DataSource_Inserting and the BLL call



I have a problem when trying to validate data on insertion (and possibly update, didnt try it yet) .

I use a formview in insert mode, linking to a custom BLL that then link to a DAL to insert data into a table. The problem is the parameter data is changing between the Datasource inserting event and when the BLL insert method is called. 2 field, that cannot be null in the database, have default value added to them. Bot sure how to explain so well so 'ill post some picture explaining :

This is the form I use, I enter only test in the textbox for the value Nom

this is the trace for my DataSource_Inserting event, as you can see, only the "Nom" value is non-null

But then, right after the event is done and the call is made to the BLL, the value for "Sexe" and "DateDeNaissance" has been changed to some default value, namely 0 and Jan 1, year 1.

This of course is causing problem because if the user does not provide value for "Sexe" and "DateDeNaissance" then I want t

How can I pass a parameter into my report?


I looked all over the forums, spent about a day on it, found numerous people having similar problems passing a parameter, but all the solutions I found so far were partially incomplete or incompatible to my project. I tried using a few of the "solutions" and they generated exceptions. I'm using straight ASP.NET so far with no c#. Is there a way to do it without code behind?

If someone suggests a solution I would be very grateful! Laughing I'm certain that if you provide a complete working example that others in the future will be very grateful as well.

Here is what I have thus far:

I used studio to create an .ASPX web form, and I used the report wizard to create a .RLDC file on the .ASPX page.

When I execute it, it works! Beautiful... Now how do I pass it a parameter?

So this is what I have below (which works), but I want to pass in a single int32 parameter to the stored procedure usprptGetData in which it is based.

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="MyPage.aspx.cs" Inherits="My_Reports_Guarantor" %>

Microsoft Report Viewer control to display data on one page

I am wondering if the Microsoft Report Viewer control allows for display changes.  Say for instance a user wants would like to see all the data requested then another time would like to toggle thru the pages of infomation.  So does anyone know if the control allows for display changes from complete view to paginated viewing.  I am using MS VS 2008 with ASP.NET 3.0.  Thanks for your response.


Data validation for datetime parameter in SSRS

Hi,   I wanted to know more about validation of SSRS parameters. I have a simple report which has a parameter called startdate of DateTime datatype. The datetime parameter in SSRS takes manual input as well. So, the user can enter any junk value. I want to ensure that the input parameter is in correct format and I want to display an error msg when the format is incorrect. My report has the following VB code for validation:   Public Function Validate( ByVal startdate As String) As BooleanIf IsDate(startdate) = True Then Return TrueElse Return FalseEnd IfEnd Function   And my report has a textbox which has the expression property set to; =Code.Validate(Parameters!startdate.Value) the textbox on the report has to display if the entered date is valid or not.   But, when i enter an erroneous date, SSRS doesn't render the report and throws a generic error. This happens even before the code written for validating the parameter executes.   Also couldn't find a way to disable the manual input for the datetime parameter. Even that would solve the problem.   Another alternative was to make the startdate parameter as string, but i want the calendar control button to be provided for the user.

ssrs 2008 R2 - report parameter with no default set throws java script error

We have recently upgraded from SQL Server 2008 to SQL Server 2008 R2....I am experiencing a problem with my report parameters on my SSRS reports. It seems that my report parameters that I do not have a specified 'default' value throws a java script error when I try and run/render the report under R2.  As soon as I put a 'default' value on the report param, everything is fine.  However, that is not the behavior we need for our reports...the user needs to pick their selection. Can anyone shed some light on this, it seems to be an AJAX problem...I need to be able to have report parameters with a list of values, but no 'default' value on the parameter.

USE [datatbaseX] this produces the following error: Msg 911, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 Database 'databaseX' does not exist.
