VS2008 BIDS Report export to Excel not grouping the same as VS2005

I have a report that I created in VS2005 BIDS and got it to export to Excel to group/subtotal the same way it does in the BIDS report window.  Now I have copied the .rdl files to a VS2008 project, open it in VS2008 BIDS, made NO changes to the report format and the exported Excel file is combining what should be the 2nd and 3rd groups into 1 group.  In the BIDS window, the grouping is working correctly.  Does anyone have any ideas what has changed between 2005 & 2008 that may cause this problem?  Thanks in advance.

Report fine; PDF export fine; Excel export crashes - ArgumentOutOfRangeException

I use the Report Viewer Redistributable 2005 Service Pack 1 (version 8.0.50727.1843). On my ASP.NET page the report displays fine, in a ReportViewer control, using an rdlc file.

Export of rdl report from VSBI to Excel

Excel Export Report with Parent Child Dimension OLAP





I have a problem with a reporting services 2005 report.

The data source is OLEDB for OLAP 9.

The report contains all the members of a parent child dimension. An example of the implementation is defined in the post following the forum msdn:

The report works fine in web. The problem is when the report is exported as Excel, the groups disappeared and the entire dimension is ragged down.

Normally toggled groups in reporting services are exported to Excel with the appearance '+' or '-' on the

In SSRS 2008, after export to Excel report loses nested visibility groups


I have a report  created in SSRS 2005 which is running on our new SSRS 2008 box.  It has 3 nested levels of visibility so the recipient can click the twist tie to view different levels of detail.  Each Zone has many Districts and each District has many Stores.  The report renders displaying the summary of the Zones.  If you click on the twist tie on the Zone it opens up a list of Districts.  If you click on the twist tie on a district, it opens up a list of stores.  If you click on the twist tie on one of the stores, you get the actual details of all repair orders submitted for that store.

The report renders fine in report manager.  The report has a subscription set up to run monthly that exports the results to Excel and emails them to our client.  The problem is when the report exports to Excel the twist tie exists on the Zone, but it missing on each of the Districts and Stores.  The client is not happy about this.  This report contains large amounts of data and is very combersome without the visibility grouping working properly in Excel.

I tried converting the report to SSRS 2008, but that did not solve my problem. 

Is there anyway to fix the export process to Excel? 


P.S. I tried to upload the code, but it caused my question to be too many characters

Modifying the link to a report for the Excel export



I have a main report that calls some reports. When I click on some cells I can navigate to a specific drill-down report passing some parameters. I haven't used the SubReport control (I don't want to embed the drill down reports in the main one).

Well, when I export to Excel format the main report and save it on the file system, in the Excel for the cell to navigate to drill-down reports it is written the Report Server address, but it is very preferable to have the local path of the drill-down reports exported and saved.

Is it to modify these links? Any suggests to solve this issue, please? Thanks

Error when trying to export gridview to Excel - RegisterForEventValidation can only be called during

I have a pretty basic vb.net page that has textbox control on it and a "generate" button that when clicked, fills a datagrid.  That all works great, but when the user clicks the "Export to Excel" button, I get this error.. RegisterForEventValidation can only be called during Render(); 

Here's my code behind, I thought I included everything I needed...

End Sub

Private Sub ExportToExcel(ByVal strFileName As String, ByVal dg As GridView)
        Response.Buffer = True
        Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel"

Export to Excel gives error before opening file


I have a web page with a gridview control and a button for Exporting to Excel

I get following error when exporting to Excel.

"The fiel you are trying to open, 'someFileName[1].xls, is in a different format than specified by the file extension. Verify that file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?"

Clicking Yes opens the file. I would like to avoid showing the above error to the users.

Following code is used from the click event. I've left the commented code here to show what I've tried based on results from internet search. I have Microsoft Office Excel 2007 on local PC.

public static void ToExcel(DataTable dt, string fileName)
			string attachment = "attachment; filename=" + fileName + ".xls";

			GridView gvExcel = new System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridView();
			gvExcel.AutoGenerateColumns = true;
			gvExcel.DataSource = dt;

			//HttpContext.Current.Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", attachment);
			//HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentType = "application/ms-excel";
			HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel";
