How to export SSRS report to PDF from SSIS with parameters

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 
Hello everyone.  I am trying to setup a process in which a user, who is using a vb.net 2008 application, will need to  trigger the creation of two items.  The first is  SSRS report which will need to be exported to PDF format to a shared folder on the network.  This report accepts one parameter.  The second thing that will need to be created at the same time is an excel file with data exported from SQL Server 2008 which is generated through an SSIS package.  A couple things to note.  The excel file and the pdf file need to have the same file name, other than the extension.  For example P00000001_20100831.pdf and P00000001_20100831.xlsx and will both be stored in the same network share.  The filenames need to be created dynamically at run time and will be based on a parameter being passed to the report. So far I have the portion that creates the excel file working fine.  The way I create that is as follows.  I have a stored procedure that creates a job which calls the SSIS package and passes the appropriate parameters to the SSIS package.  After the job is created I immediately run it and then delete the job.  Ok, everything works fine with that. Now I cant seem to figure out how to get the pdf created.  If possible I would like to keep this portion together with the already created job or package.&nb

Passing parameters from ASP.Net web page to SSRS report

  
I have a web page that displays some data.  The user first selects a date range on the web page and then can edit some data.  When they click a submit button, I want to run a report.  But I would like to pass the start date and end date values that the user already entered on the web page to the report.  Is this possible?  Can I use the value of a session variable in the report?

Problems passing parameters to SSRS report from ASP.Net web page

  
I have a web page that displays some data.   When they click a submit button, I want to run a report.  But I would like to pass the start year/month and end year/month values that the user already entered on the web page to the report.  Here is what my url looks like when the report is displayed: http://xyzserver/Reports/Pages/Report.aspx?ItemPath=%2fReports%2fDevicesAllNew&rs:Command=Render&StartYYMM=201007&EndYYMM=201008 But my report displays the 2 textboxes for my StartYYMM and EndYYMM parameters as empty.  What am I doing wrong?  I did a google search and I saw something about using ReportServer instead of ReportManager.  I notice at the top of the browser when I run my report, it reads "Report Manager - Windows Internet Explorer".  Is this correct?

SSRS Report - Page break after the Header when export to PDF

  

Hi,

I am using SSRS 2005 version. I am printing multiple invoices, taking multiple invoice numbers as a parameter and printing invoices.

I have grouped the report based on Invoice  number, so that the invoices are printed sequentially and there will be page break after each invoice. Within each invoice there is a header, body and footer.

My issue is after the header is printed, an automatic page break happens after the header, and the body moves to the next page. Therefore there is a large gap between the report header and the body. The report layout is landscape.

I wish any one can solve this issue and grateful if they can give the solution for my problem.

Thanks,

Mahalingam

 


Disabling Export option for a single individual SSRS report

  
HI Forum Members,

    I read some discussions on disabling Export option in SSRS for an individual report.
Some said to go into the Report Properties in the Design tab and write below code:
Set ReportViewer.ShowExportControls = false;

I'm new for SSRS apart from doing some adhoc reports - So, i'm confused here. Where should i write this code?
Can any one help me.

Thanks,
Chaitanya.

SSRS Report Page break when export to PDF

  

Hi,

I am using SSRS 2005 version. I am printing multiple invoices, taking multiple invoice numbers as a parameter and printing invoices.

I have grouped the report based on Invoice  number, so that the invoices are printed sequentially and there will be page break after each invoice number. Within each invoice there is a header, body and footer.

My issue is for certain cases the line items in the body of the invoice, only the last line item moves to the next page. Cretaing a large gap in the body of the report. This happens only for some invoices. I am using Land scape type report, having Page size as 11 * 8.5 inches.

I wish any one can solve this issue and grateful if they can give the solution for my problem.

I can also send the RDL file, sample data as well as the PDF output for review.

Thanks,

In SSRS 2008, after export to Excel report loses nested visibility groups

  

I have a report  created in SSRS 2005 which is running on our new SSRS 2008 box.  It has 3 nested levels of visibility so the recipient can click the twist tie to view different levels of detail.  Each Zone has many Districts and each District has many Stores.  The report renders displaying the summary of the Zones.  If you click on the twist tie on the Zone it opens up a list of Districts.  If you click on the twist tie on a district, it opens up a list of stores.  If you click on the twist tie on one of the stores, you get the actual details of all repair orders submitted for that store.

The report renders fine in report manager.  The report has a subscription set up to run monthly that exports the results to Excel and emails them to our client.  The problem is when the report exports to Excel the twist tie exists on the Zone, but it missing on each of the Districts and Stores.  The client is not happy about this.  This report contains large amounts of data and is very combersome without the visibility grouping working properly in Excel.

I tried converting the report to SSRS 2008, but that did not solve my problem. 

Is there anyway to fix the export process to Excel? 

Thanks
Carol

P.S. I tried to upload the code, but it caused my question to be too many characters


How do I call an SSRS Report from a stored procedure, and pass parameters?

  

Hi all,

I have a Report, that I want to run ad-hoc from a Stored Procedure. 

I want to render this report to PDF format, and save it to a drive.

The difference between this post and most threads I've seen is I don't want to run a stored proc within the report and send parameters to the stored proc.

I DO want to call a report FROM the stored proc, and send parameters TO the report.

How can I do this?

Many thanks,

Jason


SSRS report export to CSV showing column headers always in English inspite of the selected locale.

  

We are encoutering an issue with SSRS report export to CSV showing column headers always in English, regardless of locale.

 

We are using SSRS to display report results in a report viewer window launched from an ASP.net page.

 

When the report viewer is lauched in fr-CA locale, the report viewer window content is in French. However, when the results are exported to CSV, all the column header labels inside the CSV are always in English.

 

Blank pages in SSRS Report PDF Export

  

I am developing a report with almost 25 columns table and the width of the report is 20pt. But I am changing the visibility of a few columns in run-time so that the resultant width will fit in one page (11pt)(I checked all the margins and resultant width of table. Sum of all the widths are with in the pagesize only). Everything is working fine when i check the report in browser, but when i try to Export to PDF there are alternate white pages, which are corresponding to the hidden columns width i guess.

How to achieve PDF Export without white pages? Also, is there any way to shrink the report to a single page?

I am using SSRS 2005

SSRS - Retreiving generated Parameters from Report Server created by using StoredParametersID

  

SSRS - Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services Version 9.00.4309.00

Problem - StoredParametersID is an rs: (report server) parameter and is not a valid Report Parm and can not be used in web services calls as a parameter. It can not be used as <deviceinfo> and it cannot be used as a "ReportPath" in the web services call.

How can I retreive the current set of generated parameters that are created on the report server side, so I can use these to make a web services call to retreive the Drill Down report since the only method to retreive the report information seems to be a Report URL call with the StoredParametersID included.
