SSRS 2005 check render format

Hi, My SSRS 2005 Report Contain Hyperlinks.
When I am exporting this Report into PDF, inside PDF this Hyperlink still showing up and when i click on that, it is redirect on that link.
I want the Hyperlink Active in Report Manager , not after Exporting to PDF.
How can we Remove Hyperlink, when rendering to PDF ? or how can i possibly check is the report is interactive
Thanks !!!

SSRS 2005 does not have RenderFormat !
Ah sorry I missed you're on SSRS 2005
Then only way is to create a separate version for PDF with those hyperlinks removed and call it via link from main report by specifying full report viewer url for the report
Please Mark This As Answer if it helps to solve the issue Visakh ---------------------------- http://visakhm.blogspot.com/ https://www.facebook.com/VmBlogs

  • SSRS 2005 - How to format a time column so it shows as HH:MM?

    Hi all
    I have a field called ScheduledTime. If I include this field in a report, that column displays time as 39916, etc. It is always a 5 digit number. How can I format that report column so that the time shows as the actual time in a HH:mm format? eg 23:57,
    01:06, etc. I have already set the column format to t, T, HH:mm, but none of them works
    Thanks
    Naz

    I think below expression would work..
    =format(DateAdd("s",Fields!timeField.Value,"1/1/2000"),"HH:mm")
    Replace Fields!timeField.Value with your report specific field
    Cheers,

  • SSRS Execution Service Render Method stopped working

    Hello SSRS Profis!
    I'm having the following Problem:
    I was trying to integrate SSRS in my Company-Software, and until today it went quite good:
    Its an ASPMVC 5 project with WCF-Services, and in these i had methods to render reports with the help of the ReportExecution - Webservice (2005), the Version of the MSSQL Server we use is 2008R2, reports use stored procedures as data sets.
    Everything worked fine, i could render all my reports in the services, gave the result back to the Frontendprojects to present it there, it worked fast and properly.
    Until today: For some reason, the call of the ReportExection.Render() - Method gives no more results back.
    Debugging shows me that it works approx. the same time as it did before for every report, but the result now is only "null" for every report i integrated until now:
    Here is the code I use to execute the service (for network credentials i use a user with administrator privilegue who can access all the reports (tested in private session), Parameter constructio also should work properly because it did before, same
    for the Report path...
    Any Ideas would be helpful!
    private byte[] getPDFFromReport(string ReportPath, Dictionary<string, string> parameterDicitionary)
    ReportExecutionService rs = new ReportExecutionService();
    // private method to set a user with enough permissions
    rs.Credentials = SetServiceAccount();
    // Render arguments
    byte[] result = null;
    string reportPath = ReportPath;
    string format = "PDF";
    string historyID = null;
    string devInfo = @"<DeviceInfo><Toolbar>False</Toolbar></DeviceInfo>";
    // Prepare report parameter.// mapping Parameters, gives back ReportExecution.ParamaterValue Array, still works as it should
    ParameterValue[] parameters = SetReportParameters(reportPath, parameterDicitionary); DataSourceCredentials[] credentials = null;
    string showHideToggle = null;
    string encoding;
    string mimeType;
    string extension;
    Warning[] warnings = null;
    ParameterValue[] reportHistoryParameters = null;
    string[] streamIDs = null;
    ExecutionInfo execInfo = new ExecutionInfo();
    ExecutionHeader execHeader = new ExecutionHeader();
    rs.ExecutionHeaderValue = execHeader;
    execInfo = rs.LoadReport(reportPath, historyID);
    rs.SetExecutionParameters(parameters, "de-de");
    // rs.Timeout = 300000;
    String SessionId = rs.ExecutionHeaderValue.ExecutionID;
    Console.WriteLine("SessionID: {0}", rs.ExecutionHeaderValue.ExecutionID);
    try
    result = rs.Render(format, devInfo, out extension, out encoding, out mimeType, out warnings, out streamIDs);
    execInfo = rs.GetExecutionInfo();
    Console.WriteLine("Execution date and time: {0}", execInfo.ExecutionDateTime);
    catch (SoapException e)
    Console.WriteLine(e.Detail.OuterXml);
    // Write the contents of the report to an MHTML file.
    return result;
    Edit:
    I tested the methods with the same user in an WindowsForms Project and got a result. In a former Version, it also still works. I changed nothing since the last deploy in this methods, so can't imagine why it suddenly stopped working....

    Found the solution!
    After checking team-foundation-changelogs of the last checkins, it turned out that somehow automatically some value in the reference.cs of the reportexecution - webservice was changed from:
            [return: System.Xml.Serialization.XmlElementAttribute("Result", DataType="base64Binary")]
    to
            [return: System.Xml.Serialization.XmlElementAttribute("Value", DataType="base64Binary")]
    After deleting and readding the webreference to the Project, it worked again.
    The next Thing to Research for me is how it can be, that this value automatically changes. Possibly because of different Versions of VS in the dev-Team.. (Ultimate and premium) In any case, this issue is solved, thank you for reading :)

  • Is anybody successfully migrated SSRS 2005 SP2 to SSRS 2014?

    what I was doing:  Try to migrate the ssrs 2005 sp2 in a old web server to SSRS 2014 in a new server (native mode)
    1. old SSRS web server:  SSRS 2005 SP2 enterprise edition with window server 2003  (server 1)
    2. New SSRS web server:  window server 2012 R2, installed sql server 2014 database engine and SSRS. (server 2)
    3. backup configuration files, encryption key, we have no custom assamblies from the old SSRS web Server (server 1)
    4. Backup the report server databases from the existing old database server. (server 3)  (our SSRS web server and SSRS report server databases are in different servers)
    5. Created the RSExecRole and grantd all the permissions according to the documentation in the sql server 2014 database server (server 4)
    6. Restore the databases to the new database server that is in sql server 2014. (server 4)
    7. Go to server 2 to configure the reporting service using the configuration Manager
     I successfully pointed to new databases, but when test the url, I got the error:  The version of the report server database is either in a format that is not valid or it can not be read.  The found version is '143' and the expected version
    is '162'
    I worked with Microsoft technician, and he said I have to upgrade my old SSRS from 2005 SP2 to 2005 SP4 first then do the migration.   But I saw some article saying that I can migrate the SSRS from 2005 SP2 to SSRS 2014.   Any help is
    very much appreciated.  
    Li-hui Chen

    Thank you Katherine for your reply!  I was able to bring up the reports in my new Report web server when I restore the RS databases onto a sql server 2008 server.  I got the version conflict error when I restore the databases directly onto a sql
    server 2014 server.  Our goal is migrating the SSRS 2005 SP2 to SSRS 2014 with databases in sql server 2014. Therefore, I will have to migrate the SSRS 2005 to 2014 but host the Reporting server databases in sql server 2008 R2 first, then
    upgrade Reporting Server databases to sql Sql server 2014. 
    Below steps are what I have done so far to migrate the SSRS from 2005 to 2014:
    1. install sql server 2014 on a new server (RS server 2- SSRS 2014)
    2. backup up config files, encryption key, application files in old reporting server(RS server 1 - SSRS 2005 SP2)
    3. backup the reporting server databases from old database server  (in sql server 2005 sp4) (RS databases server 1)
    4. Move config files and encryption key backup files to new RS server 2.   
    5. Move databases backup files to another server (in Sql server 2008 R2 (RS databases server 2) 
    6. Restore the backup files to (RS databases server 2)
    7. Configure the Reporting services in new server (RS server 2 - SSRS 2014)
        a. configure URL
        b. change databases connection
        c. Restore the encryption key
    8. Check the reports.
    Now, I am able to see all the reports in my new web server(SSRS 2014) and the databases are in the server that is in SQL Server 2008 R2 version. 
    My collegue will upgrade the database server 2 including the report server databases and some other databases (currently in sql server 2008 R2 version with some other databases). 
    1. When she upgrades the database server 2 from sql server 2008 R2 to sql server 2014, do I need to do anything on the new reporting service web server?
    2. I was thinking about that I will need to do the RS databases backup and encryption key backup  before my colleuge do the sql server 2014 upgrade, and after she finish the upgrade, I will then go to new SSRS web server to do the reporting
    service configuration using the configuration manager tool.  I will do the database set up and restore the encryption key.  Am I right? 
    Any comment and suggestion will be great appriciated! Have a nice day!

  • Upgrading SSRS 2005 (Enterprise Edition) to SSRS 2012 (Enterprise Edition). Need to know Minimum System Requirements?

    Hi Guys,
    Currently we are using SSRS 2005 (Enterprise Edition). We have 3 Reporting Servers and One DB.
    I have been asked to provide minimum System (Hardware and Software) Requirements. Currently 300-500 concurrent users and accessing the reports.
    I would like to know what should be minimum System (Hardware and Software) Requirements? 
    and also could anyone guide me in checking current systems configurations
    I have checked following:
    Current Reporting Server DB Size: 3771.13 MB
    Current Reporting Edition: Enterprise Edition (64-bit) 2005
    Database Version: C.0.8.54
    Server Mode: Native
    I would like to check: Exact Concurrent users (How to check this?), RAM, Disk Space used and free. Please suggest If I have missed out any other configurations those need to check.
    Thanks Shiven:) If Answer is Helpful, Please Vote

    Hi ,
    Check the Link Below.
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143711.aspx
    Requirements
    The default configuration option uses default values to configure the core settings required to make a report
    server operational. It has the following requirements:
    You hardware should meet minimum hardware and software requirements for running Microsoft SQL Server. For more information, see Hardware
    and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server 2012.
    Reporting Services and SQL Server Database Engine must be installed together in the same instance. The Database Engine instance hosts the report server database
    that Setup creates and configures.
    The user account used to run Setup must be a member of the local Administrators group and have permission to access and create databases on the Database Engine instance that
    hosts the report server databases.
    Setup must be able to use the default values to reserve the URLs that provide access to the report server and Report Manager. These values are port 80, a strong wildcard,
    and the virtual directory names in the format ReportServer_<instance_name> and Reports_<instance_name>.
    Setup must be able to use the default values to create the report server databases. These values are ReportServer and ReportServerTempDB. If you have existing databases from
    a previous installation, Setup will be blocked because it cannot configure the report server in the default configuration for native mode. You must rename, move, or delete the databases to unblock Setup.
    If your computer does not meet all requirements for a default installation, you must install Reporting Services
    in files-only mode and then use the Reporting Services Configuration Manager to configure it after Setup is finished.
    Do not try to reconfigure your computer only to allow a default installation to continue. Doing so could require
    several hours of work, effectively eliminating the time-saving benefit the installation option provides. The best solution is to install Reporting Services in files-only mode and then configure the report server to use specific values.

  • SSRS 2005 report: Cannot bulk load Operating system error code 5(Access is denied.)

    I built a SSRS 2005 report, which calls a stored proc on SQL Server 2005. The proc contains following code:
    CREATE TABLE #promo (promo VARCHAR(1000))
    BULK
    INSERT #promo
    FROM '\\aseposretail\c$\nz\promo_names.txt'
    WITH
    --FIELDTERMINATOR = '',
    ROWTERMINATOR = '\n'
    SELECT * from #promo
    It's ok when I manually execute the proc in SSMS.
    When I try to run the report from BIDS I got following error:
    *Cannot bulk load because the file "\aseposretail\c$\nz\promo_names.txt" could not be opened. Operating system error code 5(Access is denied.).*
    Note: I have gooled a bit and see many questions on this but they are not relevant because I CAN run the code no problem in SSMS. It's the SSRS having the issue. I know little about the security of SSRS.

    I'm having the same type of issue.  I can bulk load the same file into the same table on the same server using the same login on one workstation, but not on another.  I get this error:
    Msg 4861, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
    Cannot bulk load because the file "\\xxx\abc.txt" could not be opened. Operating system error code 5(Access is denied.).
    I've checked SQL client versions and they are the same, I've also set the client connection to TCP/IP only in the SQL Server Configuration Manager.  Still this one workstation is getting the error.  Since the same login is being used on both workstations and it works on one  but not the other, the issue is not a permissions issue.  I can also have another user login into the bad workstation and have the bulk load fail, but when they log into their regular workstation it works fine.  Any ideas on what the client configuration issue is?  These are the version numbers for Management Studio:
    Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 9.00.3042.00
    Microsoft Analysis Services Client Tools 2005.090.3042.00
    Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2000.085.1132.00 (xpsp.080413-0852)
    Microsoft MSXML 2.6 3.0 5.0 6.0
    Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.5512

  • Want to use the same #TEMP table for multiple datasets in SSRS 2005

    I am using Visual Studio 2005 to create SSRS 2005 reports. The report will consist of two different matrix from two different dataset that will gather data from the same data source. The first dataset is a procedure that inserts data from a query into
    a #temp table and outputs it in the first matrix. I want the second dataset to be a different procedure that references the same #temp table. When the report is pulled then can the #temp table be dropped.

    Try in the Dataset properties.  In the Query tab, under and to the right of "Data source:" click the box with the elipses (...).  In the General tab, toward the bottom, there is a check box beside "Use single transaction".

  • Issues in exporting SSRS report to PDF format in Report Server - Blank spaces are deleted

    Hi Gurus,
    I have a problem in exporting SSRS report to PDF format. It deletes all the blank spaces when I use bullet in a Text box and try to export to PDF formt in Report Server . For example
    •             Project submitted to the TRC
    Result in PDF format:
         • ProjectsubmittedtotheTRC
    I also noted that when I try to export to PDF in Visual Stuio 2005 (Business Intelligence development studio), it does not delete any blank spaces and shows the correct aligned Data in PDF format.
    Please help me as it is frustrating a lot
    I would highly appreciate for your quick response 

    Was there ever a solution found for this as i have the same issue.
    When bullet point is entered in a field all the spaces are removed when exported to PDF
    i tried exporting to excel and it does not remove spaces, however this is no use to me as it needs to be in PDF
    Using IE 7 (Don't think the browser has anything to do with it as this happened via a subscription)
    Didn't know SSRS had specific Service Packs, i though they came as patches to SQL Server (SQL Server is on Service Pack 3)
    This should be easy to replicate all you need to do is copy text containing a bullet point into a sql server database field and then add this field to a report export to pdf and the spaces are gone
    Thanks in advance,

  • Running SSRS 2005 in Reports Manager 2012

    Hi Guys,
    I'm just wondering if there's any implications on deploying  SSRS 2005 on Reports Manager 2012( along with SQL Server 2012).
    We are upgrading our OS from 2003 to 2008 and we're thinking when we migrate our reports manager to the new sever, we'll upgrade it as well.
    We have plans to convert our SSRS 2005 to 2012 but for now we want to put on hold on it and check whether the old version can be ran in Report Manager 2012.
    Many thanks.

    Hi Vinxster,
    Generally, Report definitions are also upgraded when you publish or upload an .rdl file created in an earlier version of Reporting Services. The original file is not upgraded unless you open it in Report Designer.
    If a report cannot be automatically upgraded, the report is processed using the backward-compatibility mode. The report definition remains in the original schema.
    When we upgrade a Reporting Services installation to a SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services (SSRS) installation, Report definition (.rdl) files are automatically upgraded in the following ways:
    The Report Server automatically upgrade existing published reports and report snapshots to the new report definition schema for the first time they are processed.
    When we open an .rdl file in Report Designer in Business Intelligence Development Studio (BI Dev Studio), if the report was created for a previous namespace, Report Designer automatically creates a backup file and upgrades the report to the current namespace.
    This is the only way we can upgrade a report definition file.
    Note: when we upload a report definition file directly to the Report Server or SharePoint site, the report are not upgraded. We should upgrade the .RDL file in Report Designer in Business Intelligence Development Studio (BI Dev Studio).
    When there are references to custom code embedded in a report or to custom assemblies, reports might require additional steps to complete the upgrade during an upgrade of a report server. Custom assemblies should be moved manually to the new installation
    folder if we want to continue using the custom functionality in reports. If these assemblies are installed in the report server installation folder, they need to be moved to the new installation folder after the upgrade completes.
    For more information about upgrade reports, please see:

    For more information about upgrade advisor to prepare for upgrades, please see:

  • Cannot Change Render Format In Project Settings FCP X 10.1.4

    I am importing video files into Final Cut Pro X 10.1.4 from my Sony A7s. They are XVAC-S format, MPEG-4 / H.264 compression, 24fps at 50Mbps.
    The issue I’m having is prior to importing the footage, when I create a new project I am unable to change the render format. The option is “greyed out” and not available to select or change and selects ProRes Proxy as a default. After I import the footage, I tried to only check the “Optimized Media” option but unless I also create proxy files, the footage in the editor says “missing proxy” and I am unable to edit my footage.
    Next I tried to change the render format after I’m done editing by clicking on the project, opening the inspector, go under the “Info” tab, and select “modify Settings” and still the field is “greyed out” and unavailable.
    The reason I need to change the render format is that rendering source the files into ProRes Proxy noticeably degrades the final image. Perhaps there is an easy step that was moved in the last update, but please help anyone. Thank you.

    Now when you say viewer appearance popup, I'm not sure what that is. The only popups I'm aware of that give any access to choosing Original/Optimized Media are:
    1. Preferences
    2. Upon importing the files
    3. Right clicking the file after import and selecting "Transcode"
    The inspector is on the right side of the application so is that what you are referring to?

  • SSRS 2005 Encoding Problem

    hi , I am using ssrs 2005 for generating PDF the reports. The reports are getting generated with different character encoding. Like if go in the report properties its showing two different character Encoding i.e ANSI and Identity-H encoding.
    Is there fix for this ?

    Hi pradip nayak ,
    According to your description that you are experiencing the issue when you generating the PDF report in SSRS 2005, the reports have different kind of encoding: ANSI and Identity-H, the Identity-H encoding caused some issue, right?
    Generally the PDF rendering extension supports ANSI characters, the Identity-H was developed to support pictographic East Asian character sets, as these comprise many more characters than the Latin, Greek and Cyrillic writing systems. If you have the characters
    turn into CID font in the PDF which will  be the Identity-H encoding, it means that some text content in the PDF Document is now written out using Glyph IDs instead of ANSI characters.
    PostScript fonts.
    If you have some issue with the Identity-H encoding and because this is an known issue and we already have some hotfix to fix it, please install related hotfix according to your current  version :
    That is part of a change we had to make in order to correctly support complex script characters (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/944358 ). These are used in languages such as Gujarati or Hindi.
    This fix is part of the GDI+ GDR (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/954607 ), which is part of SSRS 2005 CU9.
    If you have some problem For text content written out using Glyph IDs(Identity-H encoding) copy/paste is not supported for documents generated by our current PDF renderer. In order to support this our PDF renderer would need to write out a map that maps
    Glyph IDs back to Unicode chars. It is something that is on the list for a future release of SQL Reporting Services.
    Would it be possible for you to deploy and render one of your reports on SSRS 2008? It was already added to SSRS 2008 as part of SQL Server 2008 CU1 which  we added full RichText support, in this case might give you a more granular separation in terms
    of what text content is written out using ANSI characters and  Glyph IDs.

  • What is the best way to create a SSRS 2005 Line Chart Report for a 12 month period?

    I'm looking for advice on how to create a SQL Server 2005 query and line chart report for SSRS 2005.
    I need to display the peak number of patients assigned to a medical practice each month for a 12 month period based on the end-user selecting a
    single month and year.
    I've previously created a report that displays all patients assigned to the practice for any single month but I’m looking for advice on how to
    how to produce a resultset that shows the peak number of patients each month for a 12 month period. I thought about creating a query that returns the peak count for each month (based on my previously created report which displays all patients assigned to the
    practice for any single month) and then use a UNION statement to join all 12 months but I'm sure that isn't the most efficient way to do this. The other challenge with this approach (twelve resultsets combined via a UNION) is that the end-user needs to be
    able to select any month and year for the parameter and the report needs to display the 12 month period based on the month selected (the month selected would be the last month of the 12 month period).
    For the report I’ve previously created that displays all patients assigned to the practice for any single month, the WHERE statement filters the
    resultset on two fields:
    Start Date - The date the patient was assigned to the practice. This field is never null or blank.
    End Date - The date the patient left the practice. This field can be null or blank as active patients assigned to the practice do not have an End Date. When the patient
    leaves the practice, the date the patient left is populated in this field.
    Using these two fields I can return all patients assigned to the practice during Nov 2012 by looking for patients that meet the following criteria:
    start date prior to 11/30/2012 (using the last day of the month selected ensures patients added mid-month would be included)
    AND
    end date is null or blank (indicates the patient is active) OR the end date is between 11/1/2012 -11/30/2012 (returns patients that leave during the month
    selected)
    Regarding the query I need to create for the report that displays the peak count each month for 12 months, I'm looking for advice on
    how to count patients for each month the patient is assigned to the practice if the patient has been assigned for several months (which applies to most patients). Examples are:
    John Doe has a start date of 6/01/2012 and an End Date of 10/07/2012
    Sally Doe has a start date of 8/4/2012 and no End Date (the patient is still active)
    Jimmy Doe has a  start of 7/3/2012 and an End Date of 9/2/2012
    Given these examples how would I include John Doe in the peak monthly count each month for May - October, Sally Doe in the peak monthly count for
    August - December and Jimmy Doe in the peak monthly count for July – Sept if the end-user running the report selected December 2012 as the parameter?
    Given the example above and the fact I'm creating a line chart I think the best way to create this report would be a resultset that looks like
    this:
    Patient Name              
    Months Assigned
    John Doe
    June 2012
    John Doe                     
    July012
    John Doe                     
    Aug 2012
    John Doe                     
    Sept 2012
    John Doe
    Oct 2012
    Sally Doe                     
    Aug 2012
    Sally Doe                     
    Sept 2012
    Sally Doe
    Oct 2012
    Sally Doe                     
    Nov 2012
    Sally Doe
    Dec 2012
    Jimmy Doe                  
    July 2012
    Jimmy Doe
    Aug 2012
    Jimmy Doe
    Sept 2012
    From the resultset above I could create another resultset that would count\group on month and year to return the peak count for each month:
    June 2012 - 1
    July 2012 – 2
    Aug 2012 - 3
    Sept 2012 - 3
    Oct 2012 - 2
    Nov 2012 - 1
    Dec 2012 - 1
    The resultset that displays the peak count for each month would be used to create the line chart (month would be the X axis and the count would
    be the y axis).
    Does this sound like the best approach?
    If so, any advice on how to create the resultset that lists each patient and each month they were assigned to the practice would be greatly appreciated.
    I do not have permissions to create SPs or Functions within the database but I can create temp tables.
    I know how to create the peak monthly count query (derived from the query that lists each patient and month assigned) as well as the line chart.
    Any advice or help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the replies. I reviewed them shortly after they were submitted but I'm also working on other projects at the same time (hence the delayed reply).
    Building a time table and doing a cross join to my original resultset gave me the desired resultset of the months assigned between dates. What I can't figure out now is how to filter months I don't want. 
    Doing a cross  join between my original resultset that had two dates:
    08/27/2010
    10/24/2011
    and a calendar table that has 24 rows (each month for a two year period)
    my new resultset looks like this:
    I need to filter the rows in yellow as the months assigned for stage 3 that started on 8/27/2010 should stop when the patient was assigned to stage 4 on 10/24/2011.
    You'll notice that Jan - Sept 2011 isn't listed for Stage 4 assigned on 10/24/2011 as I included a filter in the WHERE clause that states
    the Months Assigned value must be greater than or equal to the date assigned value.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

  • SSRS 2005 - Dynamically control the width of columns in Matrix report or Hide any column

    Hi All,
    I just want to hide some column without having white space in Matrix report in SSRS 2005. Although I am aware of that perhaps this feature is not available on SSRS 2005. So, I just want to know if we can handle the width of column dynamically(using expressions)
    in matrix report?
    Please help. Thanks in Advance.
    Regards
    Kumud

    Hi Kumud,
    Based on my test, SSRS is not support column dynamically width. It has property “CanGrow” of text box. If we configure the property to True, it will wraps to next line if needed. In SSRS 2008, we can hide some columns without white space. If possible, I
    recommend you update your SSRS 2005 to SSRS 2008.
    There is a similar issue, you can refer to it.

  • Anyone know which render format I should use, my film will be used on a video wall (12 screens) and I need super quality. My footage format is 1080p HD resolution 1920x1080. I will be running the project from a mac with a direct line to video wall. Thanks

    Anyone know which render format I should use, my film will be used on a video wall (12 screens) and I need super quality. My footage format is 1080p HD resolution 1920x1080. I will be running the project from a mac with a direct line to video wall. Thanks in advance.

    I do some VJ-type work, involving playback of QuickTime files from the computer to projections, and I get good results using ProRes 422. That's convenient, because ProRes 422 is such a great editing codec, too.
    Traditionally, VJs use PhotoJPEG codec, which also works well, but it's a bad editing codec. So you would have to export an edited master, then convert.
    If you want it to look as good as possible, definitely schedule some time to test the footage on the wall. You may want to change the color correction of your footage to match the projectors. And if you feed the video wall some flat gray, you can see if any of the projectors need to be  adjusted.
    I'm not sure what application you're using for playback, but QuickTime Player 7 works well. It has an option to play fullscreen on an external monitor (View > Present Movie…).
