Of SSRS an Tick marks. RRS feed

  • User-534866449 posted

    I'm working on a project where we need a report that shows a status report for every day of the month. A poisitive response for the unit for the day should be marked with a Tick mark.

    I tried two different approaches.

    The first was to use the Unicode Check mark U+2713. Which was easy and showed up fine in SQL Server but came out as garbage in the report.

    So I decided to be a little cheeky and use the Wingdings 2 font which has the tick mark as the capital 'p'. That worked great, but once deployed on our server, the nasty bugger gave us a P instead of a check mark. I asked our server guys to install the font on the server but that hasn't helped. 

    Any idea guys?

    PS. Am using regular reporting. not crystal.

    You can use the SSRS indicator control for this purpose.
