I have a report requirement to embed the fonts when the report is exported to PDF.
The report server is SSRS 2005 SP3 and upgrading to SSRS2008 is not an option. I have validated that all requirements have been met to ensure embedding have been met except one - "The characters in the string that has the Font property set
are Unicode, not ANSI. No font embedding occurs for ANSI characters."
I referenced this article for requirements - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms159713.aspx .
My data is in a dataset field that was populated by a stored procedure. When I examine the rdl the it has a type name of System.String (<rd:TypeName>System.String</rd:TypeName>)
How can I ensure that any strings in the report are recognized as unicode?
The SSRS PDF renderer must be interpreting the strings as ANSI because that's how they are being rendered in the PDF file preventing embedding.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
