SQL Reporting :: Difference Between .rdl And .rdlc Files?
Oct 24, 2007
What is the difference between reports created using Business Intelligence Projects Template and the reports created using .rdlc file which is present in the various file types displayed. Why SSRS needs to be installed when you can create reports using .rdlc file.
I'm designing a layout for a report in VS2008 using SSRS/RDLC format. And every time I setup a part of that report i test it on my workstation to see if everything is ok. But, today, i finished the first page of that report and uploaded it to my hosting server (were it's going to be used), and when i press the button to convert the report to .pdf and download it the layout is completely ruined :-/ When i do the same thing in my workstation every thing 'comes out' beautifully, but up on the server it doesn't .
I added a new report template from the Reporting section of the Installed Templates (rdlc extension). I have successfully created a connection and am rtrieving data into textboxes that I have placed on the report. My problem is that I want to do a Test in the Expression template, but I cannot seem to do 'if else' statements.Can anybody give an example of how to perform conditional processing for a textbox on an rdlc page. i.e. The expressino for just populating a textbox might be:
What I want to be able to do is something like
Coding for this control seem to take VB/VBA Style syntax.
how to convert rdl to rdlc in asp.net?i create report using report builder i want to set it to report viewer in asp.net and display it the problem is that when i create the datasource in report builder i don't now where the report builder store dataSet that i create while building the reporti read topic about converting rdl to rdlc but my porblem is i can't create dataset in asp.net with parameter and i can't find the path to dataset in report bulider to add it to asp.net as an existing item??
I want to know how to open an RDLC Report in a pop up. I have taken an asp.net web application. I have added an rdlc and created a dataset and a report with the data from datasaet. In the web form I have taken a report viewer control and have binded the report. Now i have a view report button. When I click on viewReport button, the report should open as a popup. if there are any parameters like drop downs in the main page these also should be passed to the popup.
I am working with rdlc reports. I have an asp.net web form where i'll select a parameter (substance name)from a dropdown. When I click on view reports button, the report should open in a pop up. I am passing the ID(substance ID) from dropdown in query string to the popup page.
When I click on view reports button, the report should open in a pop up. For this I have taken report viewer control in another aspx page. The code in the aspx.cs page which contains the report viewer control is as follows :
I have taken two rdlc reports. The main report has the parameter SubstanceID. The child report has parameter substance name.When I click on one particular textbox in main report it should navigate to another report. So, in textbox properties of main report in Navigation tab,I am giving "jump to report"--child report name and parameters "@SubstanceName" and its Parametervalue as :
When I work out this report in server side reporting(ReportServerProject) it works as expected.But in coding it throws an error :
An error occurred during local report processing.
An attempt was made to set a report parameter '@SubstanceName' that is not defined in this report.
I have taken a report viewer and two ObjectDataSources....one for parent report and other for child report.
The code for the page that contains report viewer is as follows:
I am having a strange problem with and RDLC report with two tables in it. The tables are not related, nut I need them both on the same report. In my project, I created a typed dataset with two datatables in it (no tableadapters). IN my rdlc, added two datasets, one for each of the datatables. I then built the two tables in the report to use the appropriate dataset. When the application runs, I manually add data to the typed datasets and then add them as reportdatasources, etc. Now, all of this works fine if I have only one dataset in the rdlc. But, when I have two, I get an exception when I call lc.render(...). Digging through the inner exceptions, I end up with "DataSet1" as the inner most exception message.
I have a report which has 2 subreport, due to some problem i was asked to show the details of the subreport in one report, so i am trying with list and grouping, but when i am tring to get details in a dataset with multiple table binding with datasource is binding only first table who to read the other tables... if i am using one datasource with multiple table adapters grouping and filter in designing is not allowed, how to overcome this problem. if i don't want to use any subreport is there any way of doing it ..
I am using Report viewer in asp.net. i am getting all the fields .. my question is while clicking the content from one field i want to open a pdf document (for eg: i am displaying the Details of a Student ,in that details report Mark Certificate is one of the column .in that i am displaying the name of the document . while clicking the name of the certificate i want to open a pdf document which having the mark statement )
I create a rdlc file with table, That table shows dataset value in dynamicaly. It is working fine. But i can't able to set table border value. And also i want to show alternative rows in difference background color... (I just simply say how to design a table in rdlc file(dynamic or static)?)
I have a rdl report which I'm trying to convert to rdlc.I'm almost done except an internal parameter which has some available values I entered with labels because I want to show the label of the default value which is getten from the DataSet.In Rdlc In ReportParameters dialog box it is not allowed to specify a dataset field as a default value as I did in rdl.So How could I set the default value for that internal parameter to the default value so I show it as the label I specified?
I have a main report, one subreport1 that is embedded in the main report. Now I have another subreport2 that needs to go under subreport2.How do I do that? Where do I add subreport2, is it to main report or subreport1.
After being thoroughly frustrated with the typed datasets using the xsd designer, i built a custom class as an alternative. When I built it, I used the ComponentModel.DataObjectMethodType and ComponentModel.DataObject so that I could access them from the wizards. In the aspx file where the rdlc resides, using the wizard, I can select an objectdatasource and set the typename and selectmethod and add the object to the file. But when I go into the reportviewer, it doesn't show up as a project datasource for me to be able to add it to the reportviewer even after rebuilding the website. A few google searches didn't help so here I am asking if anyone can point me down the correct path.
I have the below format of the Date in sql server 2010-07-14 11:49:27.000 and i want to display the date in format MMM dd, yyyy 11:49 AM on the report i tried the below but it is giving the out put like ' 14 July 2007 12:00AM
I'm putting some reports together and I need to populate these reports with data from my EF Model.
I'm currently attempting to do this with Microsoft Reporting, but alas so far unsuccessful. I've tried providing an enumerated list as a data source which it seemed to accept with no problems, but I get an:
A data source instance has not been supplied for the data source 'Quote'.
When I view the page in that the report viewer control is on.
Also - while on the topic of reporting (probably not suitable for this thread) - I'm wondering how I'd go about creating a master/detail report, and how I'd provide an enumerable data type of single record for the master?
I have a form which sends over a query string to a rdlc report. The data comes up perfectly but what I need is the ability to show that parameter data in a text box on the report. Primarily I am wanting to show the start and end date parameter values on the report.
requirement is, to design a rdlc report with Multiple tables on it and export the report to pdf on button click event with out opening the report. So, no need to use report viewer. Can you please suggest any samples with step by step execution to achive this?
I have three tables in my RDLC report.Each table is having table header.Problem is when I run RDLC report,the first tabl's header is scrolling but not scrolling other two tables headers when I am trying to scorll.
I have multiple reports that take the same parameters. Need to create a master report with all the reports merged together. I dont want to copy paste the rdlc files into one large file. found a control by Telerik called ReportBook but it costs money!! [URL] anyone knows something similar? or am i missing something very obvious? using visual studio 2005... will subreports solve my problem? not sure how these work. so say i have a report that lists employers and i create a subreport that lists all employees for a particular empoyer. is it then possible on one rdlc to have the list of employers and a bunch of subreports for each employer's employees?
How can I format a money value for a field in my report.rdlc such that if the value is 200.00 it should show as 200 and if the value is 200.34 it should show as 200.34. ie, if after the decimal portion its 00 then want to eliminate the decimal portion
Does anyone know if it is possible to have two images in one rdlc table row? I want to use images for my checkboxes. I'm using the visibility property of the image to display or not display based on if the value is true or false. I want to be able to show an empty checkbox when the value is false, and a checked checkbox when the value is true. Everytime I try to drag a second image into the row, it deletes the first image I added.
(I would use the Wingding font to show checkboxes, but I need the checkboxes to display correctly when they are exported to PDF or Excel.)
