  • Spatial data from shapefiles (for T-SQL Tuesday #006)

    I’m giving a presentation on May 12th at the Adelaide .Net User Group, around the topic of spatial data, and in particular, the visualization of said data. Given that it’s about one the larger types, this post should also count towards Michael Coles’ T-SQL Tuesday on BLOB data. I wrote recently about my experience with exploded data, but what I ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #005: Creating SSMS Custom Reports

    This is my contribution to the T-SQL Tuesday blog party, started by Adam Machanic and  hosted this month by Aaron Nelson.  Aaron announced this month's topic is ''reporting'' so I figured I'd throw a blog up on a reporting topic I've been interested in for a while -- namely creating custom reports in SSMS. Creating SSMS custom ...

  • Re-running SSRS subscription jobs that have failed

    Sometimes, an SSRS subscription fails for some reason. It can be annoying, particularly as the appropriate response can be hard to see immediately. There may be a long list of jobs that failed one morning if a Mail Server is down, and trying to work out a way of running each one again can be painful. It’s almost an argument for using shared ...

  • “Excel found unreadable content” when exporting a Reporting Services report

    [This is just a quickie, I’m putting it up here for anyone that received the messages above and searches for it online!] Earlier today my team experienced some issues with a Reporting Services report that when attempting to export to Excel would cause Excel to throw the error “Excel found unreadable content” (I really should have got a screenshot ...

  • PASS 2009 recap

    This week I was at PASS just like many other folks from here. Good times as always, although less partying than in the past. Since I am still in recovery and relying on Percoset to get me through the day, I was wiped every evening. Here are a few thoughts and observations:- I salute PASS marketing for being able to keep the number of registrations ...

  • Custom Aggregations Values in SQL Reporting Services with Tablix Filters

    In these last days I’ve been working on a BI solution for a logistic company. One report I have to create has a particular behavior that can make life a little complex if you’re using Reporting Services: the value used in rows and column totals is not calculated in any way, but is just taken from the database (SSAS in this case), just like any ...

  • Reporting Services and the WriteChunkPortion stored procedure

    Reporting Services (2005) uses the ReportServerTempDb database to store cached reports and temporary snapshots. Two of the stored procedure calls I see are WriteChunkPortion and ReadChunkPortion. Because I see that the MS ASP Session state manager also use the WriteChunkPortion call, and the parameter values, I am inclined to think these ...

  • SQL Server Management Studio Standard Reports

    Buck Woody has a great series going on SQL Server ManagementStudio Standard Reports. The SQL Server team did a great job developing these insightful and intuitive reports. I often show them to customers and during presentations and the response is always positive. :{> Andy

  • 5 things I wish every SSRS developer would do

    I had a great discussion while teaching a class on Reporting Services today, discussing the basics of report design (yes, I make them consider basic principles of report design before I start talking about the technical details - I'm a stickler that way). That made me consider some of the most common design issues that I see with SSRS and the ...

  • Real Report Builder 2008 improvements for Analysis Services

    Brian Welcker (who is leaving SSRS team - good luck Brian!) has announced a long explanation of the Report Builder 2008 positioning. For me (and all of you who live in the multidimensional business...) the most important part of the post is this simple sentence: [...] However, for folks building reports against Analysis Services cubes, ...
