Parameter Validation for Floats

    Question

  • Why is the validatation of parameters of type float not working properly. I keep getting the error:

    An error occured during local report processing. The value provided for the report paramter 'EstimatedAmount" is not valid for its type.

  • Hi Jason,

    Could you please provide more information.

  • Sure. I am using Visual Studio .NET 2005 with SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services.

    I have a report parameter called "EstimatedAmount" that I set the Data Type to "Float". The available values are not predefined. The default value is 0.

    I click on the Preview tab and then enter an alpha into the Esimated Amount paramter textbox. It then gives me the error I listed above.

    When I deploy these reports to the web, I get the same ugly error.

  • Hi

    Do you know how to validate input parameters in RS2005? I have two dates as input Say "Start Date" and "End Date". I want to check that the "Start Date" should always be less than or equal to the "End Date". Any Idea how can we do this?

    Thanks;
    Rakesh

  • Can anyone help me with this? It seems that validation for a float or integer should work out of the box, but it just doesn't.

  • Should a javascript alert popup occur if you put an alpha character into a parameter that is set to an int or float?
