Report Viewer column width too small when viewing in IE 8, works in IE 8 compatibility view and Fire

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

IE 8 Version 8.0.7600.16385 64-Bit Edition
Report Viewer

The web page is just the report viewer control (see code below).  

When the report is rendered in Report Viewer   (IE 8), the width of the first column is much smaller than it should be. 
When the report is rendered in Report Manager (IE 8), the width of the first column is normal size.  
When the report is rendered in Report Viewer (Firefox or IE 7 compatibility view), the width of the first column is normal size.

Alternating row background for first column of a report


is there a way to make the first column of a report use the an alternating background color? 

I have the background color set for the entire row however it does not work for the first column if the color is set to an expression.  If I just set it to a color i.e. red it works just fine. If I insert a dummy column to the left it works just fine (but the dummy column does not work, presumably because it is first??).

In the file below only the textbox for part number does not show an alternating background.  All others work correctly.
