Configuring Report Server Security Policies. .. xvii. Introduction. Microsoft Reporting Services is the component of Microsoft SQL Server that provides online reports into a single report for the purpose of producing a PDF document. Lesson 1: Creating a Report Server Project (Reporting Services). . steps that use report server URLs do not work. For more information . database.
In this case, whenever the user executes the package, a particular SSRS report will be executed and exported into Excel. The exported Excel file will be saved in a shared folder. In this tip I will demonstrate how to solve this problem. I have divided this tip in two parts. Refer to the image below. Right click on Report Project which contains your report and then click on Properties.
Basics of SSRS.

In this, we take look at the following items step by step: It can be used to prepare and deliver a variety of interactive and printed reports. It is administered via a web interface. Reports can be designed using recent versions of Microsoft Visual Studio, with the included Business Intelligence Projects plug-in installed or with the included Report Builder, a simplified tool that does not offer all the functionality of Visual Studio.
Download Adventure work DB from the below link: Now it will show up the below screen, click next. Now select New Data Source, Name: Adventure , Type: If everything is properly selected, Test connection would get succeeded as shown below: Click ok. In connection string text area, db connection string would show up. SSRS can be used to manage and publish enrichment and interactive reports, key performance indicators, datasets and mobile reports.
I want to give a very clear example according to my experience which is about this feature enhancement. As a result, SSRS experienced a significant transformation. Namely, we can think of the report server engine as a conductor of SSRS, because all processes, tasks and requests are handled by the report server. The Report server is installed as a Microsoft Windows Service so that we can find out this service under the Services Manager.
Now, we will explain these tiers functionalities. Middle-Tier: The Middle tier involves windows service components and extensions and extensions are managed under the tier. The out-of-the-box ReportViewer functionality was also customized so that the correctly processed image is chosen in different scenarios, such as browsing and printing.
The challenge of poor print quality with a low resolution image see challenge A above was solved by using two different versions of images for each page in two different resolutions and by implementing a special logic to switch between these images during the browsing and printing.
The second challenge with properly viewing the report on screen at high resolution image see challenge B above was solved by not using high resolution images for browsing and print preview. We customized the preview by displaying low resolution image in WinForms report viewer and by using PDF preview when the printing is activated from a web page.
This allows us to significantly reduce the impact on performance and the memory pressure. The third challenge with the HTML renderer not supporting item overlap see challenge C above can be eliminated by not using HTML renderer and instead using the built-in JPEG renderer to render a jpeg image of a single page of the report at a time and building a custom report viewer to navigate between individual pages of the report. Thus, we created the two customized ReportViewers: one for Windows applications based on WinForms ReportViewer control, the other one for web scenarios that is based on a custom aspx page that leverages SSRS functionality through web requests and also internally uses WebForm ReportViewer control.
Each time the report is rendered on screen, 96 dpi images are used while when the report in printed or exported the high resolution images are used.
Since the report code itself cannot determine in which context it is used, we added a boolean parameter named ForPrint to the report. The parameter is set by our custom code to False when the report is viewed on screen and True when it is printed or exported. Our solution is depicted on Figure 1 for Windows applications and on Figure 2 for web scenarios.
Figure 1 Solution Overview for Windows applications Figure 2 Solution Overview for web scenarios Implementation Notes As mentioned, one of the challenges challenge C above that we solved was related to image distortion in web browser: the default SSRS HTML renderer slightly moved the designed positions of textbox and checkmark controls relative to the background image.
Coordinates of these cells are rounded by various browsers in a different way for instance Internet Explorer 7 appears to be rounding it up to a next integer , and with each next row and column the displacement increases. Different browsers add different kinds of distortion to the final image, but none of them is able to produce a pixel perfect representation of the report.
A possible solution would be to develop a custom HTML renderer see this MSDN article for more information on custom renderers that would render reporting items that are typically used by fixed layout reports, such as text boxes, images, tablix etc. A custom renderer was out of the scope of our sample and we decided to use a simpler solution: a custom aspx page that could be used instead of the default ReportViewer.
For browsing such reports, this custom page invokes SSRS through web requests by crafting appropriate urls to get individual pages of the report in JPEG format rendered using images in 96 dpi. For navigating between pages of the report and for invoking printing and exporting, we added custom buttons at the top of the page.
The printing is based on behind-the-scenes export to PDF so it is the generated PDF document that is actually sent to the printer. Our solution focused on addressing the fundamental issues with generating reports that overlay data on form images and we demonstrated the viability of this approach.
Some individual reports may require additional custom code. For instance some forms have fields that span a few rows and the length on each row can be different, which make it difficult to handle by standard reporting items. Similarly, some forms have certain fields, such as a SSN composed of individual cells.
These additional requirements could be addressed by implementing Custom Report Items with the design-time behavior that would allow defining exact dimension of individual lines and exact location of individual characters for strings "splitted" into cells, and the runtime behavior that would take into the account the dimensions and "spacing" defined in the design-time.
More information about Custom Report Items can be found here, but we decided that implementing them is out of scope of this work. Implementation Details Our solution consists of 3 parts, each represented by a Visual Studio project: A sample multi-page fixed layout report that overlay data on form images A sample generic solution for browsing, printing and exporting this kind of reports from Windows applications A sample generic web based solution for browsing, printing and exporting this kind of reports Requirements To open and run the samples it is required to have Visual Studio , SQL Server and the correct integration between these two products.
The easiest way to achieve it is to have both products installed locally. Creating a SSRS report that overlay data on form images for the C-2 Form Below are the step-by-step instructions for creating a sample multi-page fixed layout report that overlay data on form images using SQL Server Reporting Services. Creating a single page report can follow the same steps as below.
The complete sample report is available and can be viewed by opening the "Fixed Layout Image Overlay Report.
To make the data source schema and sample data for this report available, open "C2SampleData. We also, created a small image for the check pictogram "Check.
Step 4 - Add a Mode Parameter Add a hidden report parameter named ForPrint with boolean type and "false" as the default value. This will be used to programmatically switch low and high resolution background images.
Provide Data Source info in Data Source Properties window which will appear automatically after dragging the List control and write query which will supply the data for the Data Source. Rename tablix to BaseTable.
