Multiple datasets in report

Posted on 2012-09-20

 I have developed a report model from which I have created a report.  The report contains two tables/tablices/tablix each pointing to it's own dataset.  The fields that make up both datasets are taken from the model.

I am using the same fieldnames in each dataset.

I want to show different results in each tablx e.g

dataset 1:  select * from country where salesteam='Active

dataset 2: select * from country where salesteam='Inactive'

Each dataset has a prompt parameter for address

My problem is that when I'm prompted to enter the address to search by ,  the second dataset ignores the search criteria and brings back everything.  Can anyone suggest how to go about this?  Can the two tables use the same dataset but using expression to limit the result e.g iif(field!status.value='Active',field!status.value,"") in the first table and iif(field!status.value='InActive',field!status.value,"") in the second table

You can use the expressions or even do it right in your sql query:

select *, case when status = 'Inactive' then '' as FormattedStatus end from country where salesteam = 'active'

Also there is a row filter on the Tablix so that you can set your row filter to just pull back what you want from the same dataset.

Step 1) : Create a  Dataset ‘Country’ with the Query ‘Select * from Country’.

Step 2) : Set the Dataset Name= ‘Country’  tables/tablices/tablix (Data region) Which you created.

Step 3) : Go to the FIRST  table and took the  tablix properties and set  salesteam =  Active  in the filer tab.

Step 4) : Go to the SECOND  table and took the  tablix properties and set  salesteam =  Inactive in the filer tab.

You can do it by different dataset.

Create 2 different data set for Active and Inactive.

Put 2 Matrix and give different Dataset name to property of matrix.
