I have installed SQL Server 2005 sp2. Initialy I didn't install Report Services and Analysis Services. I next installed them using change in Add Remove Programs and still no Summary page. HELP!

I have looked for a solution to this longer than any other software search I have done to no avail.

Try to click F7 on SSMS and if no avail then try to install client tools again.

Re: No Summary page in Management Studio


I uninstalled and reinstalled everything and it didn't make any difference.

Still no summary page.

I would love to have it available as it is a development server and the reports on summary page would be very usefull especially.

It works great on our other production servers. This server has the latest service packs on windows server 2003 and SQL Server 2005. SP2 is the latest also not the original one reissued 3/5.

in sp2 the summary page has been renamed... it now Object Explorer Details (i don't have sp2 in my home machine... i am not remembering it exactly... ) .. You click on "View " in Top Menu bar and see the option available there

In SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2, we've renamed the "Summary Page" to "Object Explorer Details". The reports no longer display in this page. They are now launched from the object in Object Explorer and open in their own report window. This allows you to open multiple reports at the same time. Thus, you can compare reports on different instances or the same report multiple times to see what has changed over time.

I gave a webcast on SP2 improvements in this area a little while ago. You should check it out:
