  • Can you maybe get a more detailed error message from SQL Server Agent job that runs the data driven subscription?

  • Thank for the reply.

    actually there is no error message display. this is the message i got from this report. "9/11/2013 2:22 PM Process:0 Processed of 8. i have 6 parameter declare in my report but the 2 parameter  default value does not display. how come this parameter has no value which in my report upon running the parameter has a value. 

    Just try a report without parameter and it's working. the 8 report filename that i made was successfully save to folder that i've setup.

    Btw, do i need to inlude in my query these parameters

    The report takes the following
    FromDate, ToDate, FromTime, ToTime,
    OrderMonth, WrkCtrId, timezoneOffset

    This is my query in Step 3

    Select processby as Reportfilename from temptable where processbby<>'NULL'




    Dashboard-2 up to 8

  • Your parameters are just returning 0 records for data drive subscription result set.

    If you are not sure what your data drive subscription query is try catching it with SQL Profiler trace and then debug.
