Hi folks,

Hope all are well!
I have a quick question.I would be very greatful if someone helps me on this.
In SSRS I created a report and I am using stored Procedure to get the report data.
My Stored Proc looks like below

Create Proc sptest1
@param1 int,
@param2 int,
@param3 int
As
Begin
If dbo.paramvalidation(@param1,@param2,@param3)='Y'
BEGIN
Select ..
some SQL code
END

If dbo.paramvalidation(@param1,@param2,@param3)='N'
BEGIN
PRINT 'Invlid Message.Try again'
END
END

When I execute the same in SSMS its working fine and displaying the message as 'Invalid Message.Try again' when the function returns value 'N'.
When I use the same in SSRS its not displying the text instead its displaying the empty
data page with only column headers.
I have idea of using NorowsMessage feature in SSRS but am using that when the report displays no data.
Please help me out with this such that I can display some text in SSRS.

SSRS will not display the text. It expects a dataset with the predefined columns.
Since the resultset doesn't contain any rows, it will show an empty report.

Koen is right. What you need to do is return something like all null row and
handle this in SSRS (displaying a label on condition)

Instead of using
PRINT 'Invlid Message.Try again'

Try
SELECT 'Invlid Message.Try again' AS Col1
,'' AS Col2
,'' AS Col3
,'' AS Col4
,'' AS Col5
,'' AS Col6
etc.

to return you message as data, then your report should know how to handle it.

If your columns on the report are not wide enough you can break up your message like this:
SELECT 'Invlid' AS Col1
,'Message' AS Col2
,'Try again' AS Col3
,'' AS Col4
,'' AS Col5
,'' AS Col6

Even I tested this one as well.
Than in SSRS it is displaying me a Null row with column headers.
So here I introduced a text box with the text I want to display and I have set the visibility property for that and when the textbox is visible I have hidden the table (which has the columns headers and Null row)

Many thanks for your replies.
