Report generation fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I generate a report from within the Report Designer, it goes to a report queue.  The report moves from 'queued' to 'processing' and sometimes does not finish.  Not sure what the reason might be; the status shows 'failed' and no other info becomes available.  The 'failed' report stays in the report queue, and nothing seems to get rid of it except manually deleting it from the repository via SQL script.  Stopping/starting the process service doesn't get rid of it.

    Is there a way to delete a report that has failed via the Report Manager interface?

    Any thoughts on why a report would fail during report generation?

  • Dave,

    There isn't a way in the user interface to manually remove reports. They are automatically deleted after 7 days.

    When the report fails, there isn't a message in the Messages grid when you select that report?  The other thing to check would be the event viewer on the server to see if there are any messages there.
