SSRS Reporting - Exporting To Excel

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

I am new to SSRS Reporting 2008 and most of the reports I have developed required to export to Excel. This reports are embedded into ASP.NET, developed in C#. Now there is some questions I would like to ask:

1) When I am exporting to Excel, I would like to insert some comment in the some cells in the Excel (comment like where you see a red dot in each cell in Excel, and when mouse over you can see comment of this cell)

2) Is there anyway to put a filter to the header after export to Excel?

Issue while exporting to Excel

Hi All, We are having report in SSRS 2005, everything is working fine while Running the report on BIDS as well as on Report Server, but as soon as we export the report to Excel it is creating issue(S) not just a issue. First - I'm not able to see "Footer" in Excel, although it does exist in BIDS as well as Report Server. It is visible while doing Print-Preview in Excel, why so is it a bug, is their any work around to make it visible without doing Print-Preview, please do let me know! Second - It is regarding "Header", I have couple of text boxes in my Report Header, as soon as I include text boxes in Report Header and when I export to excel, the rows & columns height as well as width is getting disturb (meaning some getting compressed and some getting expanded), so to make it look attractive we have to manually arrange in proper order before delivering to our end-user, Can anybody tell me why rows & columns are getting disturbed and also how to arrange with exact height & width without any manual interpection, please help me out, this is getting me crazy?   Thanks Regards, Kumar

Excel External Table Data can only create new SharePoint List when Exporting from Excel?

I have a SQL Query that I refresh everyday in Excel. I want to be able to export this list over to a SharePoint list right after my refresh in Excel but I can only Export to a SharePoint list only once. If I try to export again to the same list then it will give me the error "The specified list name is already in use on this server. You must rename the list before publishing it to the server." I have web parts that have connections to this list and I do not want to export my Query to a new SharePoint list everyday. Does anyone know a way around this issue?

exporting to excel templates

Hi all, I currently have an excel file that has 2 spreadsheets. 1 is the raw data (formatted) and the second is the validation spreadsheet. I want to create a new file biweekly that has the new raw data, but the same validation spreadsheet/same formatting sheet for raw data. I created a file system task that copies the sample template into a different location, then renames it as an excel file with the date included in the name (@newfile). My question is, how can I now connect to the new excel file within the data flow task and insert the data into the formatted sheet? I have tried creating an excel connection to another workbook in the same path and setting the connection string = @newfile, however I am getting the following error; Error 1 Validation error. Data Flow Task: Excel Destination [67]: The AcquireConnection method call to the connection manager "AG010908.xls" failed with error code 0xC0202009. Package.dtsx 0 0  Even with that connection working, how can I insert the data in the first row of the formatted spreadsheet (since it won't be available until after the file is created. The name of the formatted sheet will remain static) Thanks!

SSRS 2008 R2 Reporting Samples, why don't they work?

Hi I have Win7 64bit ... SQL Server 2008 R2. From codeplex I’ve downloaded the latest Adventure Works sample dbs … http://msftdbprodsamples.codeplex.com/releases/view/45907 Then I wanted to see the latest Reporting Samples … http://msftrsprodsamples.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=SS2008R2!AdventureWorks2008R2%20Report%20Samples&referringTitle=Home But here is the problem, these reports don’t work with the latest AdventureWorks dbs ... cause … the database AdventureWorks2008R2 does not exist in the dbs samples and all the datasets in the reports go in one way or the other to this particular database and some specific fields in it!! I have a simple installation on my laptop ... default default default ... everything else works great. Dbs I created, reports I create and so on … but I would like to get some inspiration and hints about more advanced reports from the codeplex sample reports of course. So … has anyone fixed this? Kind Regards jea

How do you freeze the tablix header row in an Excel export file in SSRS 2008?

So this is totally killing me. I've found out how to make a tablix header row repeat on each page of a PDF export file in SSRS 2008 (which I won't even get started on because all I can say is that 2005 is way better), but I cannot figure out how to make a simple header row of a tablix freeze in an Excel export file.  The tablix is right at the top of the body and spans the entire width of the design area.  How in the world do you get it to freeze in the Excel export file?
