Does BOXI support crystal reports with parameter references in formulas?

I am designing a report in Crystal Reports XI Developer that contains parameters, which are passed to a stored procedure and are also used within formulas ( in Crystal Syntax ie. {?FORMAT_ID} ) in the report itself.
I can run the report successfully in CRXI Developer.  The formulas use the correct values from the parameters entered during execution and everything looks good.
I then deploy the report to Business Objects Enterprise XI.  I do all of the things necessary to manage the report including setting up the proper database connection information and default parameter values.
When I run the report using the Crystal Report Viewer, I get the following error message:
Error in File Forecasting.rpt:
Error in formula <Report Format>.
'if (not isNull({?FORMAT_ID} ) ) then
This field name is not known.
Details: errorKind
This happens when I press the "Preview" button in the Manage Object dialog from Crystal or when I run the report using InfoView.
I have changed the formulas and it doesn't seem to matter what the specific content of the formula is; other than the existence of a parameter reference in the formula.  If I comment out the parameter and replace it with a hard-coded value, it gets through the formula fine.
Does Business Objects Enterprise XI support crystal reports with parameter references in the formulas?
Thanks,
Tim H.

Hi,
   In Crystal Reports under File -> Report Options >check convert Null Values to default > Verify on first refresh > Verify stored procedures on first refresh.
This corrected the issue by allowing the query engine time to locate those columns and map them to the query being sent by the report.
The convert null values was added because those field were being used in the record selection and grouping.

Vinay

  • JRC bug: apostrophe in string parameter passed to Crystal Report with Command datasource to SQL Server

    Post Author: nl11087
    CA Forum: JAVA
    A single quote/apostrophe in string parameter passed to a Crystal Report with Command datasource connecting to a SQL Server database, using sqljdbc driver does not escape the special character correctly. When doing a preview in the Crystal Reports IDE it allows you to escape the input parameter as expected and work correctly, but through the JRC component it fails. For string parameters without special sql server characters I experience no problems at all. When replacing the Command with a direct table there is also no problem.
    Reproduction:
    1. create a database db1, create a table table1 with a String type column col1.
    2. Create new report Report1.rpt, create a connection to above, Add Command using 'SELECT col1, col2, col3 FROM table1 WHERE col1 = '{?Par1}' . Add a parameter field Par1 : String
    3. In your java stand alone application using JRC add the parameter Par1 with a value "Jon Doe's Value" containing a single apostrophe. Export to PDF. (I also tried MSWord and this failed too, similar behavior). Additionally, in another test try to replaceAll("'","''") to escape it, preventing the code to break, but now it does not retrieve the expected row anymore and you end up with an empty report.

  • Crystal Report with text(csv) data file, can we set it as input parameter?

    Hi,
    I am a new user of Crystal Reports 2008.
    I have created a report with charts in it. The input data comes from a csv text file.
    Can I set the name of this text file as an input parameter?
    as I need to generate 44 similar reports with different text filenames(and data)?
    Thank you.
    Regards

    Brian,
    Thanks much.
    I did exactly what you said.
    Just to see any change, I first gave a bad report file name just to see if I am accidentally pointing to a different file,
    but I got an error saying report not found.
    Then I renamed my original datafile name and generated a report and it still generated one without giving an error.
    Then I also gave a junk name to the logoninfo and printed that name, the new name was assigned to logoninfo, but the code did not error out.
    It ended up generating the report.
    Now here is what I think is happening,
    1) The save data in report option seems to be still on even though I have turned it off in 2 locations
    a) file -> Report Options
    b) file -> Options -> Reporting tab.
    2) For some reason the logoninfo is getting ignored as well.
    Since I did not see any answers yesterday I posted a link to this thread on the .Net forum
    Crystal Report with text(csv) data file, can we set it as input param? C#
    and Ludek Uher says that I am connecting to the text file via a DAO database engine and so need to use the same code for changing the text file as for changing an Access database.
    But the link he gave me tells me to try the same thing that we have been trying..
    Here is my plan,
    1) I will first try and find out why my save data with report option is still on ( but it shows off in Crystal ).
    2) why is LogonInfo getting ignored.
    Meanwhile any suggestions from anyone are welcome.

  • Failed to Load database information - Crystal report with XML as datasource

    Hello Friends:
    I am getting the attached error when i try to load the Crystal Report with XML as data source.
    I have designed the crystal report with the sample XML provided with XSD schema (PFA I have attached the XML and XSD). It is working as expected on design time. But it is failing when I load it from C# code.
    Note: I have referred the following DLLs of version 13.0.2000.0 in my sample application.
    CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Design.dll
    CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.dll
    Please let me know what should be done in order to resolve this.
    Thank you!

    All I know is that you are using 'SAP Crystal Reports, Developer Version for Visual Studio .NET". No idea what service pack or what version of .NET...
    So. make sure you are on SP 9:
    SAP Crystal Reports, developer version for Microsoft Visual Studio: Updates & Runtime Downloads
    Search for KBA 1525432 (search box is in top right corner) and follow the instructions there.
    Remove your reference to CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Design.dll
    Add the following references:
    CrystalDecisions.Shared
    CrystalDecisions.ReportSource
    CrystalDecisions.Web (if web app)
    CrystalDecisions.Windows (if win app)
    I'd also recommend commenting out the export code for now; one step at a time. Get it to work in the viewer, then move on... No Big Bangs

  • Crystal Report with text(csv) data file, can we set it as input param? C#

    Hi,
    I am new to the forums and posted a question which belonged to the .net - SAP Crystal reports group.
    Can someone help me with my problem? following is the thread that I have started.
    Crystal Report with text(csv) data file, can we set it as input parameter?
    Thank you in advance.

    Looking at the original thread, you are connecting to the text file via the DAO database engine:
    "I added the text file as follow, new connection -> Access/Excell (DAO) -> select the file and the database type as text"
    Thus I would use the same code for changing the text file as for changing an Access database. See Kbase [1218178 - Error: "Logon failed" when connecting to Access database in .NET application|http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/oss_notes_boj/sdn_oss_boj_bi/sap(bD1lbiZjPTAwMQ==)/bc/bsp/spn/scn_bosap/notes%7B6163636573733d36393736354636443646363436353344333933393338323636393736354637333631373036453646373436353733354636453735364436323635373233443330333033303331333233313338333133373338%7D.do] for more information. If that does not work, you may want to consider connecting via ODBC or feeding the data from the text file to and ADO .NET dataset and pointing the report at the dataset.

  • Business Objects Crystal Reports with Clarity - anyone on here use is?

    Hi all,
    we are in the process of upgrading our Clarity system to version 8.1.1 - which has gone away from Actuate to support Crystal Reports instead.
    Is anyone here using Crystal Reports with Actuate already?
    I was looking into upgrading from CR XI to CR 2008 - but wondered if the extra functionality is worth the upgrade cost.
    They say that users can interact with the data by sorting/filtering and re-formatting without re-querying the database - and there is a parameter panel that allows new parameters to be added to the 'saved' data..
    i was wondering if those features are available when it is used with Clarity..
    thanks in advance,
    Matt

    Hi Matthew,
    I recommend to post this query to the [Crystal Reports Design|SAP Crystal Reports;  forum:
    That forum is monitored by qualified technicians and you will get a faster response there.
    Also, all Crystal Reports Design queries remain in one place and thus can be easily searched in one place.

  • Crystal Reports with BEx Query using Custom Exit Variable

    Hi,
    We have BW BEx Query using Customer User Exit variable to derive  the Fiscal Week for Last Year (called it VAR2) based on another user input variable Current Fiscal Week (called it VAR1).
    VAR2 is derived from VAR1 in CMOD via some codings and thus it DOES NOT have the "Variable is Ready for Input" flag ticked in the BEx. VAR1 is user input variable, so it has "Variable is Ready for Input" flag ticked in the BEx.
    When we create a Crystal Reports with the BEx Query using variable VAR2, and when we run it we got an error message saying "Failed to execute query; '[]<java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: No Selection State Support!ZP_MI_LYPUBWEEK>'. Redesign your query or contact the data source maintainer to solve the problem".  (note: ZP_MI_LYPUBWEEK is VAR2 in this case).
    Could anyone please assist? Surely, CR supports BEx customer user exit variables like the above, right?. I also refer to the forum below as it seems to have a similar issue (except mine with an error message), but it does not provide a solution in it.

  • "SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services does not support map report items"

    Hi,
    I am trying some new feature that are introduced in SQL Server 2008 R2 version. While I try to use "Map" control within it, it threw the following error:-
    "Error 1 The map, Map1, was removed from the report. SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services does not support map report items. "
    -Also, similar kind of error I am getting for "Indicator" control.

    Hi Tej,
    I think you get this error message when you are deploying a report to report server using BIDS, correct?  If not, please provide more details on your scenario :-)
    If I guessed correctly, then this message is a result of trying to deploy a map report (a SSRS 2008 R2 feature) to a non-R2 2008 report server.  When deploying a report of RDL2010 format to a non-R2 report server, BIDS will downgrade the file to RDL2008 format, so that the non-R2 report server can process it.  Any report elements using features not supported in RDL2008 will be dropped during this downgrade process.
    BIDS gets the server version from a report project property called TargetServerVersion:
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee635898(SQL.105).aspx
    If your report server is indeed the 2008 R2 version, then the TargetServerVersion property should be set to "SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services."  The project property page also has a "Auto Detect..." option if you are uncertain about the version of your report server.
    Hope this helps!

  • Problem in Runinng a report with parameter form through Run_Report_object

    Hi,
    I am trying to run reports thought RUN_REPORT_OBJECT built-in. It works fine in following cases
    * Run a report without parameter Form
    * Run a report with parameter form by passing parameters through parameter
    List.
    But it did not o\work in following cases.
    * Run a report with parameter form by passing parameters through setting the
    REPORT_OTHER option of SET_REPORT_OBJECT_PROPERTY built-in.
    * Run a report with parameter form by using Reports own parameter form.
    In first case it says un able to run report and does not even submitt the job to the AS. In the second case its submits the job but when i show it with WEB.SHOW_DOCUMENT, it opens the parameter form and when i run the report after filling the parameters, it displays an error page.
    I am using 9iDS and 10g AS, and 10g Database. Please help me.
    Mohib.

    Mohib,
    Run a report with parameter form by passing parameters through setting the REPORT_OTHER option of SET_REPORT_OBJECT_PROPERTY built-in.[...] it says un able to run report and does not even submitt the job to the AS
    This sound like a user error to me and you want to check the parameters and maybe look at the Reports Queue Manager for the exact error message
    Run a report with parameter form by using Reports own parameter form.

  • Does not support public parts with purpose assembly...

    Hi,
    When building a component, I'm getting the following error:
    Server Component/Library DC does not support public parts with purpose 'assembly'.
    Error: Build stopped due to an error: Server Component/Library DC does not support public parts with purpose 'assembly'.
    Build plugin finished at 2011-03-24 12:12:40 GMT+01:00 (CET)
    Total build plugin runtime: 0.311 seconds
    Build finished with ERROR
    To be more precise, one dc uses another from a public part that is "assembly" - so it's made the way it should be (both dc's are libraries, one java dc and the second one is server library)

    Hi,
    we are with NWDS 7.20 but afaik the "J2EE Server Component Library" in your version was replaced by Enterprise Application DCs in the meantime, so it is quite simple:
    An assambly PP on a J2EE Server Component Library really does not make sense. The J2EE Server Component Library is the final assembly unit. You may use such a DC in two ways:
    1. You want to use the classes that are bundled into the J2EE Server Component Library for compilation in another DC (Java or EJB). To achieve this you may create a COMPILATION PP on the J2EE Server Component Library that references compilation PP e.g. of your  java DC. (The alternative is to let the using java DC directly reference the compilation PP of your Java DC.)
    2. You have another assembly unit - e.g. an Enterprise application or another J2EE Server Component Library - that needs the classes in your J2EE Server Component Library at runtime. This is done by an application reference (in 7.20 defined in META-INF/application-j2ee-engine.xml of the DC that uses your J2EE Server Component Library). At runtime, the result is that your (initial) J2EE Server Component Library is the "parent class loader" of a using DC.
    So indeed, there is no need for a PP of type assembly for a J2EE Server Component Library. This DC does not contrubute anything for assembly into another DC.
    Rework your dependencies and PPs.
