Consider the following scenario:
  • You apply update 2791086 on a computer that is running Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services (SSRS 2008 R2) or SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services (SSRS 2012) in SharePoint integrated mode.
  • You open the RSItemPicker.aspx page. For example, you select a report in the Report Viewer web part, or you select a shared data source on the Manage Data Sources page of a report.
  • You try to select a report or data source.
In this scenario, you receive the following error message:

Line: 147
Char: 6
Error: 'target.parentNode' is null or not an object
Code: 0
URL: http://<site>/_layouts/ReportServer/RSItemPicker.aspx?


This issue occurs because update 2791086 contains a regression.


The issue was first fixed in the following cumulative update of SQL Server.

Cumulative Update 11 for SQL Server 2012

Cumulative Update 7 for SQL Server 2012 SP1

Cumulative update 9 for SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2
