Can more than 1 View be used to create DSV in SSRS Report Model RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Please let me know if there is a possibilty to use more than 1 view while creating the DATA SOURCE VIEW in Report Model.

    Actually when i added data from 2 views the report data does not get populated if fields from both the views are added. Instead if the fields from a single view is selected the report is showing correct data. Could you please explain this.

  • Hi Alisa,

    I guess it depends on how we define the relationship between the 2 views when explicitly defining the logical primary keys on the views.

    Any furthur explaination to this will be of great help.

  • Hello Ajit,

    To answer your question, you cant use more than 1 view while creating the DATA SOURCE VIEW in Report Model.

    The relationship's can be defined only within the objects in the Data Source View.

    Having said that, Report models are deprecated with SQL 2012 and this will not be supported in future versions.

  • Hi Durai,

    I used 2 views in my DSV and defined logical primary keys on both the views.After done that I set up the relationship between the views based on a identical coloumn name and it worked in the report Model.

    Please let me know if my understanding is incorrect.

  • Hello Ajit,

    I guess there was a misunderstanding between "Views" and "Data Source Views".

    And yes, what you had mentioned in latest reply is very much possible.
