I have a report in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 that works just fine, but I'd like it to export to PDF in landscape rather than portrait.  Is this possible?  Are there other options for being able to export a wide formatted report?  Export to Excel doesn't keep all the visibility formatting for the repeated rows that I hide.

Thanks,
Len

Yes its possible

Do you  know reporting services. If yes  follow this steps

1. You need  to download the reports
2.  Open visual studio
3. create a new project of type   business intelligence ---> Report
4.  right click on the report and do add existing reports
3.  Go to  design tab
4. Right click the report
5. You will get report lay out
6.  You can set width  and height of the report their save  the report and upload again
7.  You will get report in potrait format

Yes, somewhat familiar with reporting services and I understand that I can modify the dimensions of the report, but is there any way to get the Export to PDF to create a document in a different size?  It seems to be fixed on 8.5x11 portrait/US letter and we'd really like to be able to do landscape as well as support A4.

Thanks,
Len

This was the solution after all, once the report is resized it will export to PDF in landscape.

I agree with ACTGuru;  The solution offered is missing the question.  The matter is that somewhere in the report server that supports CRM the system is configured to spit out the report in portrait layout.  I too need this value to be adjusted to landscape... and preferable selectable by report since some look good in portait while others need landscape.
