Report Builder 3 PDF rendering
Hello everybody, I have a problem with Report Builder that's giving me a big headache... I'm running Report Builder 3.0 on my local machine, connected to an SSRS 2008 R2 remote machine over a local network. I have a report which contains a lot of different subreports, which can be set to visible or invisible according to a string of binary data I give the report as a parameter. After a bit of trial and error I was able to get the subreports to display even if the dataset they contained returned no rows by superimposing a textbox to the fixed table data. I can get this textbox to display on the main report by setting DataElementOutput to Output in the subreport's properties in the main report. Problem is that I can't get Report Builder to export that textbox to PDF. Does anyone know how I can get the fixed data from the subreport to render on the PDF output even when the dataset is empty? I have already tried adding a dummy dataset with a "Select 1" query but no luck, the exported PDF is still not displaying my subreport properly... I'd be very grateful for any help!
