One report >> Multiple Linked Reports in different folders?

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I love Linked Reports in SSRS because of my ability to change one report in one project and post changes to one location on my SSRS server and then have those changes take effect in my linked report.  Today however I was asked to make one of those reports which is already liniked elsewhere to be linked to two locations and I was dismayed to find out that there is a chance that its limited to one linked report for any source report. Can someone tell me this isn't so and show me a way around this?  I don't want to have to post my RDL to multiple locations unless its absolutely necessary. I'm using SQL Server 2008, SSRS2008, Standard Edition. Thanks, Keith

How to display reports from multiple lists in SQL Server Reporting Services Report Viewer


Hi All,

  I want to generate report through SSRS from more than one sharepoint lists. To generate report from one list i am using below query:

   <Method Namespace="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/" Name="GetListItems">
         <Parameter Name="listName">
   <ElementPath IgnoreNamespaces="True">*</ElementPath>

Please suggest me a query to get results from more than one list like we use joins for SQL tables.

What are my options when I need to create a report with data from multiple sources?

Hello all,  What are my options when I want to create a report that will get records from multiple data sources based on data from a parameter? The user will enter the customer ID, I have to check that ID against 5 different data sources. Have you guys done anything similar? Should I leverage SSIS on this request, adding an extra layer of complexity? Should I do this all from SSRS? What are my options?

A tsql report with multiple counts and pivioted description attributes

Hello,   I have an assignment in which I am to prepare a report displayed in excel to return counts of various attributes in the database. However, the count is a bit challenging because it requires counting certain attributes in a pivot format illustrated below. The counts for each category by recruiter, rolled up by Division, within the specified time frame.   The tables that I would have to deal with are as follows:   User: Has the number of Accounts…user accounts with no Recruiter are unassigned Recruiter: Has the recruiter information LoginHistory: Has a record of all logins EForm: Has the various forms, for example: Release and Authorization, Provider Service Agreement EFormUserXref: You can filter it to return the Physican AppForms                                                                       Surgery                                      &n

Using ReportViewer for multiple reports by way of radio buttons

 Hi all, Thanks for taking the time to read over my scenario.  I am using one ReportViewer with already established SQL Stored Procedures connected to three report files (*.rdlc).  There are three radio buttons which are to be associated with each report that needs to be displayed in the ReportViewer.  Here is an example if a radio button is selected:ReportViewer1.Reset() Dim rds As Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportDataSource rds = New Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportDataSource ReportViewer1.LocalReport.DataSources.Clear() If RadioButtonList1.SelectedIndex = 0 Then rds.DataSourceId = ObjectDataSource1.ID rds.Name = "spEx1" rds.Value = ObjectDataSource1 ReportViewer1.LocalReport.DataSources.Add(rds) ReportViewer1.LocalReport.ReportPath = "Ex1Report.rdlc" ... The ReportViewer works for the first radio button selection but then for the other selection I get the following error: A data source instance has not been supplied for the data source 'spEx1' I'm not sure exactly what is going on or where it's still tied to the first data source.  Any help would be great!  Thank you.

Creating a report from multiple data sources

I am working on a report where it requires pulling data from various sources, databases and data exported into excel sheets from different databases. The objective of the report is to create a single report with all the Providers (HPs) that have been terminated. So what I have done is that I have exported all the data on a local server in the pubs database and I am using a TSQL query to return the report. The same providers may exists in the various data sources so I have to make sure that I am only returning the data once...how ever the challenge is that, other than FirstName and LastName, there are no consistent IDs that we can use in all. For example, not all of the records have the SSN, PhoneNumber, or other IDs that uniquly identify the record. I have to create a report that returns the result set and identifiys the matching records and the source system the data is from..for example the output should display as such: Termed System firstname lastname SSN homephone phonenumber Active System AMIE Jeannine Donigan NULL 3522631007 Nurse SL Linde Peggy Vanrensselaer NULL 6077321218 Sbdev Below is the approach I I have taken to return the data and I wanted to know if there is a more efficient and better way of doing this: DECLARE @matchingTerminated Table ( FirstName Varchar(255), LastName Varchar(255), Gender Varchar(255), SSNEncrypted varchar(255), Birt

Adding a table or view multiple times when building a query with BI Report Designer and Report Build

How can I add a table/view multiple times to a single query by using BI Report Designer or Report Builder 3.0? In Report Designer I managed (workaround) to add one table multiple times by creating multiple Named Queries and having the same SELECT. Still I don't know how to add one table multiple times in Report Builder 3.0.

Report using Stored Proc calling multiple Stored Procs


Hi guys,

I am new to SSRS. I have to create a report from a Stored Proc. Thi Stored Proc excepts just one parameter 'ErecNo'. This parameter is passed to fetch the columns from table1. This result set contains OrderID. The OrderId is further passes to 5 SP's in to fetch 5 more result sets. Output of the main stored proc contains 6 result sets.

Now I have to create a report using this SP to show all the Result sets in a Single report. But When I pass the Parameter in SP in SSRS. It ends up showing just one result set with Order ID. 

Can you please guide me how can I show all the result set in a Single report? 



Multiple report execution is not in parallel


Hi everybody,

I experienced an issue with Sharepoint Foundation 2010. (Server 2008 and Sharepoint Foundation 2010 64bit)

When I use multiple Reportviewer Web parts on one page, the rendering (and most likely the Query itself) is not executed in parallel, i.e. every web part waits for its predecessor to finish.

I made two screenshots to show the difference in behavior (both are on the exact same hardware)

Multiple Tables needed for Report Builder Problem


I have 3 tables I need to join: Voucher, Voucher_Detail, and Place
Voucher is related to Voucher_Detail by column voucher_run_id
Voucher has no relationship to Place
Voucher_Detail is related to Place by column place_id

I have solved the one to many relationship problem I was having between Voucher and Voucher_Detail by adding a New Named
Query called LeftOuterJoin.

In my DSV, the Voucher table links to the LeftOuterJoin which links to the Voucher_Detail which links to the Place

When I go into Report Builder, as soon as I select Voucher_Detail ( which is the table that has the most columns I need in the report),
the Voucher table disappears from view.

Not sure what I have missed. Obviously I need access to all 3 tables' data.
