Not sure what you are asking....?

SSRS is a very comprehensive reporting tool and so it is very flexible. Report development will and should be based on your reporting requirements. If you are asking whether or not you should standardize your report base template, again it all depends on your company's requirements.

More info please?

Thanks

Actually the look and feel of report sometimes gets changed when i  export to pdf/doc/xls.For eg i have two tablix of equall width, one below other and border solid 1px applied to it.However when i export to doc/xls/pdf the widths two tablix are  not same  i,e one is smaller than other. But the width is same in report builder 2.0.

Since i am new to designing the reports.I need to know best pratices so that i can avoid the design/layout issues while designing a report.

sureshbabukrish is right it is very difficult to maintain. I have found that creating the report and rendering to PDF seems to be alttlie better at holding forms.
Since the PDF form is hard to to render per size than regular SSRS reports. I would use PDF rendering more than the other forms. That way the other formats work pretty well.
