SSRS, how to let the user manually input the value in a table (not by the parameter method)

hi Experts,

The user wants to manually input the business contract No. up to 50 in table A. Table B will be called based on how many business contract no. was input in table A. For example, If the user input 5 business contract no. in table A,  then the table B will show the related data for those 5 business contract no.

We do not want to do it by parameter, since 50 is too much.

Thank you,

In ssrs i think you have to use parameter if you want your user to provide input.

If  you think that 50 is too much to provide the separate parameters then you can provide the single text box parameter. Your user can manually provide the data in comma separated way.

You can use that string and split it in the form of table using custom split function. If you want this approach then just let me know, it will post the code for split function

hi Arif, Thanks for your reply. If I do the function split & parameter approach.
I have encounter the issues.  The stored procedure only returned the top 4 rows of data. If I input 5 contract strings or 50 contract strings, it only returned top 4 contract string data. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you.

The data type of contract strings is varchar.  They are displayed as
Contract String
193-859655
193-859616
193-859331
193-859187

Those are my code below


CREATE  FUNCTION [dbo].[Split]
(
	@List nvarchar(2000),
	@SplitOn nvarchar(5)
)  
RETURNS @RtnValue table 
(
		
	Id int identity(1,1),
	Value nvarchar(100)
) 
AS  
BEGIN

While (Charindex(@SplitOn,@List)>0)
Begin 
Insert Into @RtnValue (value)
Select 
    Value = ltrim(rtrim(Substring(@List,1,Charindex(@SplitOn,@List)-1))) 
Set @List = Substring(@List,Charindex(@SplitOn,@List)+len(@SplitOn),len(@List))
End 
Insert Into @RtnValue (Value)
    Select Value = ltrim(rtrim(@List))

    Return
END

I have changed @Contract varchar(50) to @Contract varchar(max). It can return me 46 rows, but still not 50 rows.  Does (max) still have limitation?

Thanks.

You query might return the max 46 record only.

Try to run the query with out @Contract filter. So you come to know how number of rows are available.

What I changed

@Contract varchar(50) to @Contract nvarchar(4000). Now, it can return 5o rows. Thank you,  Arif,
