Dynamically Refresh SQL Server Reporting Services Report Date Parameters

You created a report in SQL Server Reporting Services that has four parameters YearMonth and two Calendar Date Picker parameters StartDate and EndDate. The default values for StartDate and EndDate are determined by theYear and Month parameters. So when a new Month or Year is selected the value for StartDate should be the first day of the Month and the EndDate should be the last day of the Month. When you set default values for StartDateand EndDate the parameter values are correct the first time, but if you change the Month or Year the values forStartDate and EndDate don't change. In this tip we show how to solve this problem.

GO

-- STEP 2 INSERTING DUMMY ROW

INSERT INTO EMP VALUES('111-111-111')
GO

-- STEP 3 CREATING MASTER KEY

CREATE MASTER KEY ENCRYPTION BY PASSWORD ='ABCD1234'
GO

-- STEP 4 CREATING CERTIFICATE

CREATE CERTIFICATE CERTIFICATE1 WITH SUBJECT ='PROTECT DATA'
GO

-- STEP 5 CREATING SYMMETRIC KEY

CREATE SYMMETRIC KEY SYMMETRICKEY WITH ALGORITHM =AES_128
ENCRYPTION BY CERTIFICATE CERTIFICATE1
GO

-- STEP 6 CREATING A NEW COLUMN WITH DATA TYPE VARBINARY

ALTER TABLE EMP ADD ENCRYPTEDEMPID VARBINARY(MAX)
GO

-- STEP 7 ENCRYPT THE COLUMN DATA USING UPDATE COMMAND

OPEN SYMMETRIC KEY SYMMETRICKEY
DECRYPTION BY CERTIFICATE CERTIFICATE1
GO
UPDATE EMP SET ENCRYPTEDEMPID = ENCRYPTBYKEY(kEY_GUID('SYMMETRICKEY'),EMPID) FROM EMP
GO
SELECT * FROM EMP
CLOSE SYMMETRIC KEY SYMMETRICKEY


-- STEP 8 DECRYPT AND READ THE COLUMN DATA

OPEN SYMMETRIC KEY SYMMETRICKEY
DECRYPTION BY CERTIFICATE CERTIFICATE1
SELECT CAST(DECRYPTBYKEY(ENCRYPTEDEMPID) AS VARCHAR(MAX)) AS DECRYPTED FROM EMP
CLOSE SYMMETRIC KEY SYMMETRICKEY

-- STEP 9 INSERT THE ENCRYPTED  DATA

OPEN SYMMETRIC KEY SYMMETRICKEY
DECRYPTION BY CERTIFICATE CERTIFICATE1
