Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have an instance of Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) that is configured to run in Microsoft SharePoint integrated mode.
  • There are multiple data-driven subscriptions on the SSRS instance.
  • You upgrade the SSRS instance to SSRS 2012.
  • You try to view the data-driven subscriptions in a SharePoint site.
In this scenario, you receive the following error message:

Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: obj
Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.
Correlation ID: Number
Date and Time: Date Time

Cause

This issue occurs because the following tags are missing from the DataSettings column of the dbo.Subscriptions table in the existing data-driven subscriptions after you upgrade SSRS:
  • CaseSensitivity
  • AccentSensitivity
  • KanatypeSensitivity
  • WidthSensitivity
