Reporting services 2008 reports connection to azure sql database

Due to the end of support of sql server 2008 R2 we are planning to move the database to azure as a paas service (azure sql database). Right now the application server has reporting services 2008 R2, for now it won’t be moved to the cloud or upgrade his version. The users create the reports, then they upload them to reporting services and generate the desired information, My question is this: since azure sql database uses the latest version of sql server do the users or myself have to redo the reports in a newer version of report builder or visual studio data tools, or the reports will work the same way and the only thing I have to modify is the data sources.

Clubbing together network websites as subdomains and impact on Google Analytics reporting

We have set two milestones for our business that has a network of websites:

• To generate 50,000 impressions per month for so as to make it eligible for selling ad space on, a premium marketplace for display ads. • To generate 500$ per month revenue for six months for so as to make the same eligible for listing at popular website marketplaces like EmpireFlippers, FE International for sale.

My query is for the above two milestones (50,0000 monthly impressions and 500$ monthly revenue), does it make sense if our network websites (,,,,, are clubbed together under the flagship website by making all these subdomains of As I also want to make these network websites live on their own domain name, so will redirect to

By following the above strategy, I am not sure if the Google Analytics will count the visitors at ( under

Reporting trident token or other indications of a user in compatibility mode within Google Analytics

I have noticed that the number of users reporting to be using Internet Explorer 9 is high (2%) within browser & OS in Google Analytics. Reviewing the user agent it’s clear a higher number of these are running Internet Explorer 11 in compatibility Mode. It appears google analytics would represent the following user as IE9. However, the trident value of 7 indicates they are using Internet Explorer 11. What’s my browser example

DeviceType Mozilla/5.0+(compatible;+MSIE+9.0;+Windows+NT+10.0;+Win64;+x64;+Trident/7.0;+Touch) 

I’ve seen older threads stating that it’s not possible to report browser by the trident token or if the the user is in compatibility mode.

Is this still the case? Are there other tools within google analytics that could give an accurate represent of the IE 9 usage?

Facebook marketplace-competitors keep reporting me

ok, lets Start. My name is Lana:)

I have been selling products on facebook marketplace for 8 months. It is going great.
Last week I noticed that my listings are not visible but everything else looked normal.
After 3 days FB unblocked me and my listings were public for 1 hour.

Then the same thing happened again but this time I was blocked for 1 day.

I noticed I have competitors (same products) and they have more than 20 fake accounts with listings.
Then I got report from FB that someone…

Gedit in Ubuntu in VM reporting file changed on disk

Note: I heard that asking about old version is off topic here. But I’m using ubuntu 14.04 which is required by my build environment.

The question is very similar to this one:, may be the two have the same cause, but the phenomenon is not exactly the same.

Note: please don’t suggest me to use a newer version of Ubuntu, some of the software I use need 14.04.

I’m using Ubuntu 14.04.4 in VMWare workstation 12.1.1 under Windows 7 x64 and now VMWare workstation 15.1.0 under Windows 10 x64 which makes no difference. I mount a shared folder which is /mnt/hgfs/share to share file with the Windows host easily, and I create and edit a text file like /mnt/hgfs/share/docs/1.txt using GEdit 3.10.4. The shared folder is created with VMWare Workstaion’s GUI under Windows.

Then constantly after a while it will pop up a message “The file “/mnt/hgfs/share/docs/1.txt” changed on disk”. I’m not sure under what condition the message will show up, but I’m sure sometimes I’m not editing the file outside Gedit and sometimes it shows up many times even I’m not editing it in GEdit. The date/time method in the above question doesn’t work.

The more serious problem is that often when I save the file, it says it’s been modified outside and persuades me to drop the edit.

SQL Server Reporting Services Report Viewer – Error Message

We are trying to add the SQL Server Reporting Services Report Viewer webpart to a page, but get the following error:

“An error occurred during local report processing. For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors”

We are running an old version of Sharepoint – I believe it’s Sharepoint 2010.

GA reporting shows sudden drop indirect traffic

For a few months, our Direct traffic has been increasingly getting higher and higher. Which is very random nothing has changed, no new services etc. Recently we switched from GA embedded code to using GTM and loading in our Analytics script via the tag manager. All seemed to be ok except that the direct traffic dropped overnight from about 2,500 sessions to about 150 sessions. The GTM code implementation looks ok, Google tag assistant confirms that it is installed and running, and by viewing real-time reports I can see my page views. This drop also happened at the time of the GTM code install on the site.

Has anyone experienced an issue like this before?

Why would you populate a temp table for reporting?

I’m maintaining a legacy accounting application that runs nearly all of its reports by populating a temp table at runtime. The temp table is dropped on a daily basis and includes information about the report’s configuration (i.e. which terminal ran it, landscape vs. portrait etc…). Is there a reason to have the application do this rather than select the configuration view in real time and pull the data it needs from a custom view?
