SSRS Tip – Formatting data as a percent

Formatting data within SSRS is fairly easy, for each field there is a format property. By referencing and applying the standard format strings (link below), converting data to something like a percent is simple. The percent is symbolized by a “P” . This reporting case was a little different, as the data was provided as numeric and provided as a percentage. If I used the percentage symbol, the data would have been converted to something much larger; 2700.00 %, instead of the more realistic 27.00 % (example below). Additionally, there was a need to format the numeric data to a Fixed decimal, with 2 decimal places (hint: format code = “F2”) To solve this issue, in design mode, right click the field, select Expression… use the expression builder property sheet, we first format the numeric fiel...

Lest we forget: ConfigMgr 2012 add-ons and extensions, why you want them

Quite often I see folks attempting to do things with CM2012 and they struggle a bit until someone finally recommends downloading the System Center 2012 – Configuration Manager Component Add-ons and Extensions.  There’s some really great tools included in the “kit”.  You may not need any of them right now, but you should still have them on hand.  Either download them and keep them stored in a familiar place, save the download link somewhere, save this page link somewhere as a reminder, or even use your favorite note system to, at least, keep a list of what’s included.  TIP:  Personally, I use Evernote for things like this.  In fact, I’ve clipped the list items and tucked them away in a special Evernote notebook, along with the link.   So, what’s included i...
