SSRS Reporting Services | Parameters using Stored Procedures exercise | Report using basic parameters - directors by D.O.B.
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
The answer to the exercise will be included and explained if you attend the relevant Wise Owl course (sadly, only in the UK for now).
You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
The aim of this exercise is to create the following report:
The report should show all of the directors born between two given dates.
First create a stored procedure called spDirectorsCut to show all of the directors born between two parameters (@MinDob and @MaxDob, say).
Create a report called Directors Cut (with apologies to Vicki for the lack of apostrophe) based on this stored procedure. For the title, you'll need to use an expression similar to:
format(Parameters!MinDob.Value,"dd/MM/yyyy") & " and " &
What happens if you enter two dates which return no directors? Customise the NoRows properties of the table to allow for this:
An example of what you might see if you enter invalid dates.
Close your report down!
