  • This is strange. Do the parameters of stored procedure or hard coded?

  • the paramters were sessions on the web Form and is passed as a parameters to the report

    it is about 32 report converted to .Net2010 and SQL2008 and it is hard to change the way they passes.

    this is the way the parameters appear not question mark(stange characters) but for the parameters which type is number, it appears correct like in the picture

  • Hi nermo,

    You have mentioned that the report is work fine on Chrome. It may be a compatibility issue of IE9. At this time, I suggest that you first check this issue in IE9 Compatibility View mode. Please refer to the following steps:
    1. Launch the IE 9, and press Alt+T to select the Tools.
    2. Click Compatibility View settings.
    3. Check the “Display intranet sites in Compatibility View” option, and click Close.

  • thanks for your reply, But  “Display intranet sites in Compatibility View” option is already checked

    the problem at the paramters only, all the remaining data on the screen are correct (although they have the same arabic language)

    I think Compatibility View problem if all the data is incorrect
