Reporting Services Report Parameters
After spending some time with Reporting Services over the past couple weeks, I have noticed a few issues that I find rather odd, at least in my opinion. If you create a report and use a parameterized query, report services will nicely add the parameters to the report for you as well. This is a great feature and I really like that aspect. What is different however, is when you want to call that report from within an ASP.NET web application. Ideally, you would like to be able to pass the values for ......

Developing Without Admin Privileges is Most Frustrating!
Today, I have spent considerable time bashing my head against the wall. Our company policy stipulates that no developer will work while logged on with an administrative account. Although I applaud this idea and accept it for its inherent security and general all around good idea, it is still frustrating as heck. (Not the word I want to use). Why do VS Developers and Debugger Users not have read permission to the MSSQL directory? Or for that matter, why not read and execute to most of the directories ......

DataGrid TableStyles Oddity
Setting up tables styles in a datagrid for an application displayed some strange behaviour. As an example, I have added various DataGridTextBoxColumns to my table styles.

If you have a text value of Qty as the HeaderText and set it to HorizontalAlign.Right, you will notice that the y in Qty gets partly chopped off. Change the text to Quantity and all is well. Give it a shot ......

How Stupid Can Experienced IT People Be?
I was introduced to computers when my parents brought home a Commodore VIC-20. (I still have one as well as a C-64). I bought my first Intel based machine as an 8086. I have taught IT courses at the post secondary level as well as corporate training. I hold various CompTIA, Microsoft and Novell certifications. I have taught students and IT professionals the importance of maintenance on PCs as well as a good backup strategy. I have had customers who purchased PCs from me bring them back with failed ......
