SQL reporting Services portrait/landscape??

Anybody figure out how to get report to render in landscape? I have a report with a only a chart on it and would like to render it in landscape. Can't figure it out.

Thanks.

um, you mean print to landscape? That's in your print options. Web pages don't have portrait/landscape settings.

If you mean the layout for Excel rendering, that's supposed to be automatic. First it tries portrait, then landscape, depending on the width of your columns, or height-to-width ratio.

I understand that. If i set the report page size to 11x8.5 and layout the report so that it uses that page size and then print the report tellimng the printer to print landscape the report still comes out choppped off on the edges.

Okay, this may sound crazy, and I can't test it right now, but have you tried setting the report page size to 8.5x11 and then telling the printer to print landscape. Back in the cobwebs of my brain, it seems like that worked...

Sorry that didn't help. It's been awhile since you posted, and no one else has contributed yet, so you might want to post a "pointer" question to try to help folks find this question. Or call Microsoft. :(
Reporting Services is new enough that there aren't as many experts (or as high a level of expertise) as there is for SQL Server...

Sounds like a good idea. I had a feeling when I originally posted that there would not be many responses. It's new and it will take time for people to become "experts". Thanks for your time, I really appreciate it.
