Eyeball the report's .PageSize / Width and .InteractiveSize / Width and make sure that it's not something like 4-5".

Thank you for your response.  I've tested it in several browsers and this is what I'm finding:

1. IE - Cuts report in half.

2. Firefox - Renders just fine.

3. Chrome - Does not render at all.

4. Opera - Renders just fine.

5. Safari - Does not render at all.

What are you thoughts on that?

What does it look like when you preview it in BIDS/VS/RB (whichever client tool you use to develop the report)?  As Jim mentioned, it's probably related to the report size properties.

Thank you for your responses.  I looked into .pagesize and interactivesize.  They are correct.  If my widths were off, won't all browser renderings be off?

Not necessarily because not all browsers are actually supported, so results on the unsupported ones are unpredictable...
