We use a cloud based finance system, and as part of this we use Crystal reports.  I have recently established that whilst the application and database servers are our own dedicated servers, the Crystal RAS is shared with other cloud provider clients.

I have a few issues, 1 – I know what Crystal does but don’t know the details of how a RAS server works, especially when multiple clients are using one server which will of course be pointing to numerous databases and; 2 – because of point 1, I not sure if I should be concerned about our data being accessed by other clients, for example how is our data/reports segregated from other clients?).

Can anyone help with my understanding of the technical details behind the workings of a Crystal RAS server is this type of environment and what controls we should be putting in place, getting evidence of from the provider to ensure that our data is still secure from unauthorised access?

Many thanks.

I am trying to pass two parameters through my report to get a report window to pop up. I am getting the following error and cannot see my issue. Perhaps tired eyes and could use a hand.

Name 'PATIENTVISITID' is not declared.

="javascript:void window.open(" &"'"& Globals!ReportServerUrl &"/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?"

&"/Billing Reports/Jeffs/Testing Folder/Sub_rdl_Detail_QuestionAnswerChecklist&rc:Parameters=False&rc:Toolbar=False
&PATIENTPROFILEID="& Fields!PatientProfileId.Value & PATIENTVISITID="& Fields!PatientVisitId.Value &"
','DetailsWindow','left=300,top=180,width=850,height=365,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,location=no'" & ")"

Open in new window

I'm using SSRS 2016 and facing rendering issue in IE 11 (one e.g. Drilldown button is missing when we browse reports via IE 11 ). It works fine with Chrome, but our end users preferred browser for  SSRS reports is IE 11. Is there anything can be done at server level to fix the rendering issue.

Your help is highly appreciated.

Hello Experts

I have a collection of SubReports inside a MasterReport. I'm having a small problem where SubReport number 9 (for instance) doesn't show up if there are no records. Instead there is just a blank section in the MasterReport, and then it shows the next SubReport. Its worth noting that SubReport number 9 does show up in Report View and Layout View, but does NOT show up in Print Preview or during an actual Print.

Ideally, we'd like it to display the headers for this SubReport and no records underneath them - instead of just all white space because this MasterReport is structured with numbers in the Titles, etc. (Check Number 1 - Expenses; Check Number 2 - Overdrafts, where 1 is SubReport 1 and 2 is SubReport 2). The numbers are important, and the order is also important.

For what its worth, I am using Office 365 Access.

Thanks for your ideas and thoughts!

Hi,

I am migrating an old Crystal Report to an alternative Dashboard application.
My crystal report (which works very well, shame I have to migrate) reads from a table of monthly stock sales history.

e.g.

STOCK CODE   MONTH1UNITS   MONTH2UNITS   MONTH3UNITS   MONTH4UNITS   MONTH6UNITS   MONTH7UNITS
ABC123            100                         87                          69                          93                          108                        111
ETC
ETC

My Crystal Report had a parameter to prompt the user for number of months to report on.
A calculated field in the report registered all 60 of the month columns into an array and then looped through the correct number of months based on the user parameter for number of months to aggregate for each stock record in the report.
This solution was simple, elegant and worked very well.

I don't have the facility of arrays in the alternative Dashboard app.
Can anyone suggest an alternative way of achieving similar through SQL in Stored Procedure?  I'm struggling...

Hope i've explained clearly enough?

Thanks in anticipation...

I am trying to display a report, I have a stored procedure that requires 3 parameters.  I am also using EF6 to push and pull data but I don't seem to be getting any data back to my report data source.  In my edmx file I see the SP in the functions folder and can pull scheme info.

In the code behind I try this
    ReportDataSource rds = new ReportDataSource("dsBOL.PrintBOLDataTable", dt);
but nothing.

Here is a shot of the report data source.

I am using Delphi Berlin and QR6, when I preview my report, on the preview window left corner I see a "page 1 of 10", "page 2 of 10" expression. How can I use de "of 10" part on my report? In the new quick report that is done without the ".prepare" option, which causes delay on showing the report

Good afternoon,

I am very new to cognos report writer and have a calculation question. The report I created pulls in purchase order lines and quantities. Based on critera of period received that is selected so when I run the report I get a result like the following (which is correct)

Period Received         PO Number     PO Line Number     PO Quantity
1                                   123                    1                                 2500
2                                   123                    2                                 2500
3                                   123                    1                                 2500
3                                   123                    2                                 2500
4                                   456                    1                                 1000

What I need to calculate is if the PO Number is the same and has multiple line numbers that are the same calculate the PO quantity based on the PO line number. So in this case the total PO quantity I would like to show at the bottom of the report is 6,000. In other words lines 1 + 2 total 5000 for periods 1-3 and since period 4 has a different po add an additional 1000. How would I accomplish this?

Hi,

We have a CRXI report with a watermark.  We want the watermark to show in all sections EXCEPT group footers which contain subreports.  The subreports should not show the watermark.  Is there a keyword or formula that can suppress the watermark (it is excel) if the section is a group footer?

Thanks.

We have an enterprise system with several hundred canned reports (most of which are never used, but that's another story).  We use BusinessObjects Web Intelligence to write the canned reports, and also users run their own Ad hoc reports using the same Universes as the Developers.

We do not have a Data Warehouse, but I'm trying to sort out operational reporting (with no data latency) vs OLAP coming from a Data Warehouse.

We keep saying we want a Data Warehouse but we're really not all that literate about what that means, imo.

We say we're the Business Intelligence team, but what we really are is the Operational Reporting team, and we also allow users to run reports out of this system.

I'm trying to sort out how to "position" a Data Warehouse, and how people would actually use it along with the Operational Reporting system.

Also, our BusinessObjects Universes pretty much match the data model of the OLTP. So it's a big mess, imo. It's got every relationship in the same manner as the main data model. So we don't utilize Data Warehouse techniques (e.g., flattening of the data), we just basically re-build the data model in the Universe. So it ends up hard to maintain and confusing to the users.

So some specific questions
- am I on track to separate out operational reporting from Data Warehouse functions? If so, what's the right term for the operational reporting?

- is a data warehouse necessarily going to have some measure of data latency ? Say at most 24 …

I have built 4 reports in Access as part of an Attendance Tracking Database. The reports are all built in a similar fashion with VBA code in the event on open of the report that populate some textboxes. I have also added a button on the report that brings up the built in macro "ExportWithFormatting" to allow the user to save the report as a PDF,

For 3 of the reports when the file is exported to PDF all of the fields populated by VBA code are saved but on the last report when it is saved to PDF the fields which were populated by the VBA code appear blank in the saved version. I am losing my mind as I built them all the same but am getting a different outcome.

Does anyone know why these fields are saving blank to the PDF?

I made a huge mistake and tried to copy an existing RDL and must have clicked the OK button as it was trying to set up a new connection...

Then I tried to see the management form for the page and pushed F5. This broke al the reports on our QA machine.

Now, i get a database error and none of the hundreds of reports are associated with a valid data source.

I get:

An error has occurred during report processing.
    Cannot create a connection to data source 'MyDataSource'.
        For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors

How do I force the existing reports to use a given Data Source?

 

Thanks.
