Hi All

I have a client that's running 2008R2, and an SSRS Data-Driven Subscription that is generating an error when executed, meaning on the Subscriptions tab, the Status for this subscription shows 'Done:  1 processed of 1 total; 1 errors.

Problem is the UI doesn't show details of this error afaik, and I don't know where to get them.

Looking through blogs I see views ExecutionLog (and ..2, and ..3), but don't see anything with this subscription name in it.  

I'm also seeing in blogs a text log file at the below path, working on that as I don't have privs on this test server.
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10_50.MSSQLSERVER\Reporting Services\LogFiles

Thanks.
Jim

Hey Jim,

Afaik the SSRS trace log file is the place where you need to look.  If they don't want to give you access to the server, perhaps you can ask them for a copy of the file?

Here's a detailed blog post on how to locate the appropriate lines in the files, working from the Schedule ID of the subscription: Troubleshooting Subscriptions: Part II, Using the Reporting Services Trace Log File

The gig has ended, so I can't verify this solution led to success, but I suspect it does.
