I've submitted a bug report (above). Please read for more details.
Have other people found the same problem?
Basically, an excel report from SSRS2005 could be happily opened on various smartphones, but cannot when exported from SSRS2008R2.
An odd workaround is to download the EXCEL to a desktop pc. Open the Excel, Save the excel. And then email that to the smartphone. This modified excel sheet can be viewed fine on a smartphone.
(of course, this workaround is manual, and cannot apply to automated subscription reports)
So something between 2005 and 2008 has changed, and changed badly. The example I've attached to the bug report is an report with just one cell with a label in it. As simple as could possibly be.
It views fine on smartphones if exported from SSRS2005, but fails to open at all if exported from SSRS2008.
If anyone else has ideas on what else I could possibly try? or at least could they verify they have the same problem and it's not just me. :)
