Reporting Services - Introduction videos | SSRS Part 13 - Null values in parameters
Posted by Andrew Gould on 21 May 2013
Parameters allow your users to filter reports by typing in values or selecting from drop down lists. But what if they want to leave a parameter blank and still see results in the report? This video teaches you how to handle Null values in parameters to make this possible. You'll learn how to allow a null value in a parameter and how to write a WHERE clause to handle the null properly. We'll also look at how you can create drop down list parameters which allow null values, including how to append a null value to a dataset, how to mask the null value with descriptive text and how to sort the drop down list to make sure the null appears at the top.

Making a video bigger
You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:
Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.
When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.
Improving the quality of a video
To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:
Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.
Choose to change the video quality:
Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.
The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):
Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)? You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
