How do I display excel, pdf and word binary data in a gridview?


Hello forum

I'm using the following code to upload images, pdf files, word files and excel to a sql table as binary data.  However, I can only figure out how to display the images but am clueless about the other type of files.  What adjustments do I need to make so that with a button click I can access the other files?  't By the way, I'm using an image control to display the binary data and I'm aware that that will only work to display images, I just don't how to access all the other types of files once uploaded. Thanks

Reporting Services 2008 - footer problem when exporting to Word


I have a footer that I want to show up on the last page only. 

I use the following expression for the text box under text box properties --> visability

=IIF(Globals!TotalPages = Globals!PageNumber,

False, True)

When I run the report in reporting services, it does only print the footer on the last page.  When exported to Word, footer prints on all pages.

My questions: 

1.  Is my expression ignored in Word for the footer, so I will not be able to do this in the footer?

2.  Is there another way to have something print at the bottom of the last page that will be recognized when exported to MS Word (report size will vary based on data returned)? 

Any help is appreciated.

Kind regards.

Problems with encoding (UTF-8) when exporting Gridview to CSV


I have a gridview surrounded by buttons adding export functionality to Word, Excel, PDF, CSV/TXT. The code origins from:




and was easily applied. Now, while the first 3 works like a charm, the CSV/TXT exports nicely enough, but the encoding goes *poof* so some - in my case Scandinavian - characters looks anything but Scandinavian. A screenshot on the aforementioned page indicates, that its not my use, but a general problem in this code (found below) I have been experimenting with response.charset and response.contentencoding with no luck. Does anyone here have a clue (or an alternative solution)


Protected Sub btnExportCSV_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
        Response.Buffer = True
        Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=TMS-Pro.txt")
        Response.Charset = ""

        Response.ContentType = "application/text"

        GridView1.AllowPaging = False

        Dim sb As New StringBuilder()
        For k As Integer = 0 T

Exporting to Word with table of contents


I was looking for functionality in SSRS 2008 that allows the creation of a table of contents when exporting to Microsoft Word.

I have not been able to find any examples and thought maybe I would have to use a 3rd party component.  Has anyone had experience doing this in SSRS and if so could you provide an example.

Thank you,

Traditional Chinese text flows into right Margin area when exporting to Word - SSRS 2008 R2



I've a Master Report which contains many sub reports. The page size is 11 X 8.5. I've set the .5 top & bottom margins for the Master page & set .5 left & right margins for all the sub reports.

The report renders fine when exporting to pdf. But while exporting to WORD it didn't show up any margins except left. So I copied just the Master page(for Word) and added an empty text box of size .5 on top & bottom. This work around works fine for English. But for Traditional chinese the text flows into right margin area. Left, Top & bottom margins are fine. And I really don't want to change the sub report settings since it works fine for pdf.

Any help would be appreciated!

Textbox Editable GridView in ASP.NET

This article describes how I made a fully editable gridview in C# using ASP.NET 2. The idea is that the GridView looks and works like an Excel spreadsheet. You see all the cells in the table, and you can edit any of the cells you like, and they are automatically updated (i.e. saved to the database). This is very often how people expect data tables to work in web pages, and I've often seen people clicking in vain on un-editable gridview cells, somehow expecting to edit them, and not understanding that they need to click an Edit button at the end of the row.

Displaying Row Details Tooltip on GridView using JQuery

Continuing exploring JQuery! I decided to implement a feature to display some kind of details related to a row displayed on GridView. For example when displaying employees details on GridView some information might not fit in the GridView because it will make it huge and wide. These infomration can be diplayed as Tooltip.
