Two great articles for this category, and hopefully something for us to build on. Thanks to both entrants, keep the articles coming!


And here's an excerpt from the article:



Consider below sample code is my dataset query:

DECLARE @UnitsOfMeasurement TABLE (Measurement VARCHAR(50),Units VARCHAR(20))
INSERT @UnitsOfMeasurement SELECT 'Area','m2'
INSERT @UnitsOfMeasurement SELECT 'Volume','m3'
INSERT @UnitsOfMeasurement SELECT 'Luminance','cd/m2'
INSERT @UnitsOfMeasurement SELECT 'Time','s'
INSERT @UnitsOfMeasurement SELECT 'Electric current','A'
SELECT * FROM @UnitsOfMeasurement

I have added single column on the report as shown in below screenshot:

The expression for the UnitsOfMeasurement column is as follows:

= Fields!Measurement.Value + " - " +  Fields!Units.Value

  1. Thanks Ed !! .. Just a feedback & suggestion .. It is easier to post on technet Wiki than on technet gallery .

    In MSDN  forumns , if we are asking any question while typing the title for the post we will get list of related posts , in similar way if we get on technet wiki and gallery , we can avoid duplicate posts 🙂

  2. Ed,

    Also under Technet wiki contest , why don't we have separate category for SQL Server XML and powershell !!!

  3. That is a good idea. Did you add it to our list of feature requests? You can add it to the Wiki section and the Gallery section:…/4703.feature-requests-for-technet-and-msdn-profiles-and-social-platform-tools.aspx

  4. I am proposing a PowerShell category for September (see the comments):…/19494.technet-guru-contributions-for-september-2013.aspx

    And because of your comment, I'm asking the community if they want a SQL XML category in the TechNet Guru contest:…/do-you-want-a-sql-xml-category-for-the-technet-guru-contest
