Hi all

I want to render out a CSV file in reporting Services 2005, but I don't want RS to put in the header rows, I just want the data, is there anyway or anyhow of turning the headers for just this report off, or hiding them?

Thanks

David

Hi DavidGreenfield,

Remove all the col headings from the layout view

That obviously doesn't work, the column headings when saving a report as a CSV come from the name in the properties window of each cell of the table, and the properties name obviously has to be unique so you can not set it to nothing.

Hi David,
The export to CSV is very basic in RS, it just dumps the data out, including headings. You have no control over it.
To do this properly, you should create a DTS/SSIS package to do it, that is it's purpose. The package can be scheduled too.

Cheers
Chris
