In this article, we will show you how to create an SSRS Report using Stored Procedure with an example. It’s one of the frequently asked questions by SSRS followers. To demonstrate the same, we are going to create a Stored procedure on the Adventure Works DW database.
The below screenshot shows the data that we are going to use in this stored procedure:
USE [AdventureWorksDW2014] GO IF OBJECT_ID ( 'SP_ProductSales', 'P' ) IS NOT NULL DROP PROCEDURE SP_ProductSales; GO CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[SP_ProductSales] AS BEGIN SET NOCOUNT ON; SELECT Prod.Color, Prod.EnglishProductName AS ProductName, Fact.SalesAmount, Fact.OrderQuantity, Fact.TotalProductCost, Fact.TaxAmt FROM DimProduct AS Prod INNER JOIN FactInternetSales AS Fact ON Prod.ProductKey = Fact.ProductKey END GO
Create SSRS Report using Stored Procedure
In this example, we are going to create a 3D Clustered Column Chart to display the step by step approach to create an SSRS Report using Stored Procedure. The below screenshot will show you the Data Source and Dataset we are going to use for this Clustered Column Chart Report.
Here, we have to change the Query type from Text (which is the default) to the Stored procedure.
Next, Please select the required stored procedure name from the available list. From the below screenshot, you can see that we are choosing the stored procedure that we created earlier.
Lastly, please navigate to the Fields tab, and check whether we got all the fields from our stored procedure or not. Here you can add Calculated Fields also.
In the SSRS report design, we can add a Clustered Column chart by dragging the Chart property from the SSRS Toolbox to Design space. Or right-click on the report designer to open the context menu. From the context menu, please select the Insert -> Chart option.
Once you select the Chart option, a new window called Select Chart Type will be opened to select the required chart from the available once. For this example, we are selecting 3D Clustered Column Chart.
Once you click on the Ok button, the 3D Clustered Column chart will display in the design region with dummy data.
Clicking on the space around the Clustered Column Chart will open the Chart Data window.
In this example, we will create a Clustered Column chart for the Total Product Cost and Sales Amount. So, Drag and drop them from dataset to chart data values and Product Color in the category group.
I suggest you to refer to Create Column Chart in SSRS article to understand the creation of Clustered Column chart
Click on the Preview button to see the report preview.
From the above screenshot, we created a 3D Clustered Column report using the SP_ProductSales stored procedure in SSRS. Let me Format the chart a bit for a classy look.
Remember, we already explained the Formatting options in the Formatting Column Chart article. So, Please refer to the article to understand the steps.
