Faster Broadband

Right, old phones in th UK had a wire specifically to make the phone make a noise (ring) when someone was calling your number. Modern phones dont need that wire as tone dialing took over from pulse dialing years ago. The bell wire as it is known is still in the phone line and terminates in the master socket in your house. Apart from being there and doing no harm it attracts electical currents from the surround envirnment and as it is wrapped up right next to your phone line these voltages affect your broadband connection. BT have a solution that could be offered with new connections or to troublesome connections but ...

nowhere else that I could find it, so here for the good of man (and the odd ASP.Net developer

I have a website that I want to show reports to the users. We use Reporting Services on SQL Server 2005 and I develop the reports via Visual Studio 2005, deploying them to a normal Report Server. I would like the user to be able to view these reports via their .Net application and ideally to select the report they need from a form control (like a Drop Down List maybe?) and then see the report in the page.


  • create two or more reports (we need more than one to demonstrate that the selection is working) and deploy them to your server.

  • create a stored procedure to return a list of the reports on your server
  • create an ASP.Net web page
  • drag onto the page

    • one data source (dsReportList)

    • one drop down list (ddlreportlst)

    • one reportviewer object (reportviewer1)

  • set the data source to reference the stored procedure

  • set the drop down list to reference the data source

  • set the report viewer to be

    • a server report

    • reference the report server url - the locations where the reports were deployed

    • if you want the report to have data in it then also set it to a specific report

    • edit the code behind for the SelectedIndexChanged section of the drop down list code to be:

      With ReportViewer1
         .ServerReport.ReportPath = "/vms/" & ddlReportList.SelectedItem.ToString
         End With

Make sure the AutoPostBack value for the Drop Down List is True so each time it is changed the page refreshes.

Should work now.

Very odd

On Sunday evening I will be fixing my Ex Wife's catflap.
