Symptoms

When you run a SQL Server 2008 R2 report under the following scenarios, you may encounter an issue.

Scenario 1

  • The report uses a shared dataset. You specify collation, case-sensitivity, and other options for the dataset.

  • You set a filter in the dataset.

In this scenario, the report displays incorrect results.

Scenario 2

  • The report uses a dataset. You specify collation, case-sensitivity, and other options for the dataset.

  • You set a filter in the dataset.

  • You create a parameter that is bound to the dataset.

In this scenario, the parameter lists incorrect values for selection when you run the report.

For example, assume that you create a shared dataset that contains the following data.

Color

ID

Black

1

black

2

You set the case-sensitivity option for the dataset to false. Additionally, you set a filter that uses the following expression:

[Color] <> black 

When you run a report that returns the shared dataset, the following data is displayed.

Color

ID

Black

1

However, you expect the "black" row to also be displayed.

Cause

This issue occurs because the collation, case-sensitivity, and other options are not considered when SQL Server processes the filter of a shared dataset or the parameter of a filtered dataset. If a different filter or parameter is used, this may cause an error.
