Reporting Services sends mail, but loses formatting

Posted on 2007-07-30

I created a few reports in Visual Studio. They work great and the formatting is perfect. However, when I using Reporting Services to email them, all of the colums are changed to the same width, which is much to narrow. Where can I fix this? Is this in Reporting Services or Visual Studio?

    If you have HTML embeded in email message it can be problem. Its formating depends on mail client which is reading it. Try to look on HTML report in Browser and check its look when changing windows size.

    Better is to attach PDF which has fixed formating and is good loking all the time.
