What form of debugging or troubleshooting have you done so far? You might want to set a breakpoint and step through the code line by line. Just a thought.

The code fails and throws exceptions in this line:
string subscriptionID = rsSubscription.CreateDataDrivenSubscription(report, settings, dataRetrieval, description, EventType, matchData, pvalue);

The results for Prepare query works fine.
I tried changing configuration in the Report server. Set Unattended execution account as i was getting the Execption : Unattended Execution account expected.

After this error is solved, Field missing exception is coming up.
Not finding any solution for this

Field missing sounds to me that you are either trying to pass to many fields(parameters) to this service or you are not passing enough. I would look into this.
