ssrs 2005: sub report date issue

hi all

i have an ssrs report where i pass two date variables 1) date_from 2)date_to

the parameters work fine on the dashboard home page, but when i access a sub report from a graph etc they return no data..

if i take one of the dates out it returns as expected..

eg a basic example of one of the subreport data is

select (case when owneraccount is null then updatedby else owneraccount end)as owneraccount  ,cast(convert(char(11), addeddate, 111) as datetime)as addeddate,
Departmentname ,servicereqno,SubCategory,state

from dbo.q_incidents

where owneraccount = @owner
and addeddate >=  @date_from
and addeddate <=  @Date_To

Open in new window


i have linked both the date parameters to the same date field action part of the graph
and if i run the query simply from data section it also returns the correct information!
am i doing something silly? its been a long week!! :)

You probably have done this already but on the subreport, you need to make sure that your 2 date params are defined.

For instance, i am sure you built the report first before adding it to your main report.

So, on the sub report, you click on Reports (at top of page), click parameters.

On the parameters screen, check to see that your date params are there.

If they are, make sure their data types are datetime, not String.

If they are not, to the left of the screen, Click the Add button to add your date parameters.

Lot of times, they are not added automatically.

just for kicks, can you try:

and addeddate between  @date_from and  @Date_To

Only other thing I can think of is to cast all the date params:

and cast(convert(char(11), addeddate, 111) >=  cast(convert(char(11), @date_from, 111)
and cast(convert(char(11), addeddate, 111) <=  cast(convert(char(11), @Date_To, 111)

i see the issue!

i set the parameters  to viewable on the subreport

and for some reason it is showing the "date_to" value to be the same as the "Date_from"


-- strange, i dont see how they are getting mixed up!

i got a way around it

when assigning the date_to in the action of the chart i assign it as =last(Fields!addeddate.Value) which gives me the last date entry for the selection
