Reporting Services: XML Data Source and Parameters

I’ve created an XML service (asmx) in ASP.Net that I want to use as a data source for an SQL Reporting Services report. The report and service work just fine if I use a Method from the service that does not have parameters. However, if I use a Method that
needs a parameter, the query/report fails. My investigation makes it seem that the parameter is not getting passed to the Method at all. (The parameter is a DateTime and it always ends up uninitialized and the WebMethod throws an exception.)
I’ve exhausted all my TechNet resources and Googled this excessively. It would seem that I am doing this correctly, based on all the examples I’ve seen, but I still can’t get it to work.
I've done a lot of different permutations, but this is where I’m at right now.
(Note: I've changed the Web Method's parameter to be a String instead of a DateTime. I did this as part of my trial-and-error process. Once I get this figured I'll return it to a DateTime.)
I'm trying to include everything here that will help you help me (see attached image). I had to obfuscate a few things (not sure if that is necessary).
See attached image:
Created Shared Data Source in SQL Report Services
Create Report Parameter (matching Web Method parameter)
Created a data set in Report Builder (with Query, and parameter - matching Web Method parameter)
Query in Data Source
<Query>
<Method Name="GetDueDateAging" Namespace="http://zzz.com/vvv">
<Parameters>
<Parameter Name="cutoffDate">
<DefaultValue></DefaultValue>
</Parameter>
</Parameters>
</Method>
<SoapAction>http://zzz.com/vvv/GetDueDateAging</SoapAction>
<ElementPath IgnoreNamespaces="true">*</ElementPath>
</Query>
This is where I needed the most help, and I don't totally understand it. But again, the parameter-less Method worked. I've tried adding different things in the <DefaultValue> tag (like @cuttoffDate and constant values), with no success.
WebMethod Code
[WebMethod]
public List<AgingInvoice> GetDueDateAging(string cutoffDate)
DateTime cd = DateTime.MinValue;
if (!DateTime.TryParse(cutoffDate, out cd))
cd = DateTime.Now;
Shared.DueDateAging aging = new Shared.DueDateAging();
return aging.GetDueDateAging(cd, Settings.Default.ConnectionString);
I've looked at every online resource that I could find, but I'm striking out right now. Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi Derrick,
In your case, please refer to the following method to troubleshooting this problem:
We can use Fiddler2 to monitor the HTTP post, and check whether the parameter is being sent. The Fiddler tool can helps us debug web applications by capturing network traffic between the Internet and test computers. If the parameter is being sent, please
debug the web service to ensure the method has values return.

  • How to create a report using XML data source from Crystal Report Designer

    Hi,
    Iu2019m having Crystal Report Designer XI R2 SP4. Iu2019m trying to create a report using XML data source stored on disk. This is a customer order report and the xml is structured in such a way that it has an order details header part (master) and then it has several order lines (detail). One order line can have several order line characteristics (detail-detail). So what I need to know is now I can design this layout from the designer. If this was done using views I can do it with sub-reports but using xml data this seems to be different. Can you help me to design this layout? I have included the xml and xsd as well.
    Thank you in advance.

    Hi Sourashree,
    Thank you for the response and ideas you have given me so far. I can get the fetch the data from the data source without any problem. That is I do the following,
    1.     New Report
    2.     From Create New Connection-> XML
    3.     Provide the u201CLocal XML Fileu201D and have u201CSpecify Schema Fileu201D checked -> Next
    4.     Provide the u201CLocal Schema Fileu201D  -> Finish
    Then I can see the following under XML
    + CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP_REQUEST
            CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP_REQUEST
         CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP_REQUEST/CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP
         CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP_REQUEST/ CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP/ORDER_LINES
         CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP_REQUEST/ CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP/ORDER_LINES/ORDER_LINE
         CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP_REQUEST/ CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP/ORDER_LINES/ORDER_LINE/ORDER_LINE_CHARACTERSTICS
         CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP_REQUEST/ CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP/ORDER_LINES/ORDER_LINE/ORDER_LINE_CHARACTERSTICS/CHARACTERSTIC_ITEM
    And from here if I add the following three I can get all the fields I need to the report
         CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP_REQUEST/CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP
         CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP_REQUEST/ CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP/ORDER_LINES/ORDER_LINE
         CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP_REQUEST/ CUSTOMER_ORDER_CONF_REP/ORDER_LINES/ORDER_LINE/ORDER_LINE_CHARACTERSTICS/CHARACTERSTIC_ITEM
    Then I come to the Linking section. Here I canu2019t link anything. There is a common field called u201CInternal_IDu201D but I canu2019t link using it. So I get a message when I click Next. From here I add all the fields.
    For this point onwards only I need help. How do I group, add fields and design the layout so I can get an report output as follows.
    Date
    Order number                                   Authorized code
    Customer No
    Name
    Phone

    Characteristic details belonging to Order line 2
    Order Line 3 detailsu2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026
    Characteristic details belonging to Order line 3
    Order Line 4 detailsu2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026
    Characteristic details belonging to Order line 4
    Order Line 5 detailsu2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026u2026
    Characteristic details belonging to Order line 5
    How can I achieve this kind of a layout using the give xml and xsd? Should I use grouping if so how should I do the grouping?
    I have included the full xml and xsd in the first mail I posted but I canu2019t see it now. I can include that again if you want.

  • Even with parameters, reports reading entire data source and then filtering

    I'm working with an Oracle database (read-only access) and Crystal Reports 2008.  I have created a report and added three parameters for which I have already done all necessary steps in the select expert.  But when I do a Print preview of the report, and after selecting the parameter values, the report tries to read all of the data source records before the parameters are utilized by the report.  In other words, if the data source has 100,000 records, the report will return (in the background) all 100,000 records and then filter among these returned records to present/display the data according to the provided parameter values.  Instead, I would like it to use the parameters first so that only those records that meet the parameter value criteria are read into the report from the "get go"...Since I only have read only access to the Oracle database, I cannot write a stored procedure either...(company policy)...Can parameters be used to read in only pertaining records instead of filtering already read in records in a given report?  Is there some syntax that can be entered into a Command type connection to do this?

    I've tried that but I'm now getting an error on line 6...
    Crystal Reports Error:
    Failed to retrieve data from the database.

  • Creating XML Publisher report without xml data source

    Hi
    Anyone developed XML publisher without xml source.I wanted to know is there any way to develop that..
    Presently we need a .xml file to develop any report on XML Publisher.But if there will be a way where is no .xml file and we need to generate tags for the data from scratch
    thanks
    kp

    So why develop a report if there is no data? I can only think that you have a bunch of static text, maybe an instruction page you want to publish? If so, you still need a data source, it can be a dummy source
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <ROOT/>
    ie no data per se. BIP needs a source even if there is not data to merge.
    Cheers
    Tim

  • Report Query - XML data source empty

    Hello!
    I built a report query, using the wizard, under Shared Components and when I test the query using bind variables I get the correct data, but as I click Apply Changes and get to the screen where it gives me the option to Download the data source for the report layout, the file is empty. I've repeated the steps multiple times, each time getting correct data when testing the query, yet nothing in my xml file.
    Any ideas on why this is happening?
    Thank you.

    Hello! Thank you for responding!
    I actually am having problems on the "Report Queries" section under "Shared Components"...my query doesn't return any data when I try to download/open the xml file. Once I'm able to get this fixed, I'll be able to open my report on the page that has the branch.

  • XML data source and relative path

    Hi,
    I'm developing my reports in a Windows environment and deploying it on a Linux. My problem is, I cannot seem to specify a relative path for my XML datasource. Since, my deployement is in Linux, I cannot have the standard "C:\myreport\def.xml".
    Is there a way to use a relative path? I've tried creating a environment variable but it gives me the following error.
    ERR 63001: Invalid stream in the Data Definition URL file:///%reports/data.xml null
    -John

    I guess you must be missing some "/" in the values youre passing. Remember that it's also case sensitive. Here's what I did in my report
    The data definition has this value :
    file:///&<P_XML_CFG_PATH>ReconReports.xsd
    P_XML_CFG_PATH = //reports/dtd/
    For the Datasource
    file:///&<P_XML_PATH>&<P_XML_DATAFILE>
    And the value would be something like
    P_XML_PATH = /reports/data/xml/
    P_XML_DATAFILE = <actual filename>

  • CollapsiblePanel with XML data source

    I've been working with the CollapsiblePanel for the past two
    nights. I can't make the panel collapse at runtime when I have XML
    data attached.
    I validated by downloading one of the Adobe Lab
    CollapsiblePanel samples. I validated that I could make the sample
    work from my Dreamweaver CS3 environment. Then, I added an XML data
    source and retested. The panel would not collapse. Then, I took out
    the XML dataset and retested the CollapsiblePanel. It worked.
    Is this a design feature? I can't imagine this was designed
    to work this way. I'm trying to create a scrollable div that can
    collapse. I have everything working except the collapse feature.
    (BTW: I tried defining a spry:region and spry:detailregion, it
    didn't seem to matter.)
    CODE SNIPIT
    <div id="CollapsiblePanel1" class="CollapsiblePanel"
    spry:region="dsWeek">
    <div class="CollapsiblePanelTab">Standard Collapsible
    Panel</div>
    <div class="CollapsiblePanelContent">
    <p>{feature}</p>
    </div>

    How does the xml data look like? in GML?
    If the xml data set is not too large, maybe you can add them (after your application has parsed them) as additional MapViewer GeoFeatures in a map request.
    Currently MapViewer (preview or production release of 9.0.4) does not support xml-only datasource.
    We will look into incorporating GML or other standard-based xml datasource for a future release of MapViewer.

  • How to take XML data source from URL?

    Hi,
    I creating application which need to download some data from any web page. This page is creating via XSL (as stylesheet) .This XSL
    process some XML "data source" and generate HTML page. I wanna ask if exist some way how to take this XML "data source"? If i used
    URL and take InputStream I everytime obtain full generated HTML, JavaScript page - compiled by web browser. But if i look to "page
    source" of this page in web browser i see just that XML data source which i need to take (only at start of this xml is way to xsl
    style sheet).
    But this problem i have only at my required page.If i tried to take another page with similar structure code, it was succesful.
    Here is link : LINK
    Why i dont have permision take clear xml from this page?What is so special?
    Exist some way how to take this XML without generated html code?
    Thank you.

    I apologize for my english. I try explain my problem again:
    At this url [http://eu.wowarmory.com/item-info.xml?i=33677] is web page. If you look at "page source", web page is create via XML and XSLT. I need load this data source. I used DOMParser for that:
    URL url = new URL("http://eu.wowarmory.com/item-info.xml?i=33677");
    DOMParser parser = new DOMParser();
    parser.parse(url);
    XMLDocument doc = parser.getDocument();I get exception : Exception in thread "main" oracle.xml.parser.v2.XMLParserException: Expected '?>' instead of 'EOF'
    If i used it at another page (for example [http://www.w3schools.com/XML/simplexsl.xml|http://www.w3schools.com/XML/simplexsl.xml] ), compile was successful and i can work with this XMLDocument and etc.
    I try load it by InputStreamReader too:
    URL url = new URL("http://eu.wowarmory.com/item-info.xml?i=33677");
    try {
        BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(url.openStream());
        String line;
        while ((line = br.readLine() != null) {
            System.out.println(line);
    } catch (IOException e) {
        e.printStackTrace
    }i get only compiled HTML code by web browser. At second page i load successfuly XML data - not compiled by browser.
    Is possible to take original xml page source from this page? And what diferent is between this pages?
    Thank you and i hope, you can translate this post without headache :-) If it will be necessary, i can more specify some details.

  • SQL ENTERPRISE: The edition of Reporting Services that you are using requires that you use local SQL Server relational databases for report data sources and the report server database

    Hi jeffoliver1000,
    According to your description, you are using Enterprise Core edition and you are prompted that you can’t use remote data sources.
    In your scenario, we neither ignore your point nor be doubt with what you say. But actually we have met the case before that even though the SQL Server engine is Enterprise but the reporting services is still standard. So I would recommend you to find the
    actual edition of reporting services you are using. You can find Reporting Services starting SKU in the Reporting Service logs ( default location: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\<instance name>\Reporting Services\LogFiles). For more information,
    please refer to the similar thread below:
