Laying out a report in SSRS to export in Word
Posted on 2013-11-27
I have a report that we want to be the starting point of a final project report that will be saved as a Word document. There is data to pull from the database and then project managers will put their feedback in certain sections. I've already designed the report and it looks great but I'm having trouble getting the page to break where I want it to. I'm using tables to position static information as well as data, even using tables within cells to line up things perfectly (I should probably remove those but I thought it would keep a table together if it was inside another table's row). But my problem is tables spawning 2 pages. I thought there were settings for rendering specific to the output you would like but I can't seem to find anything online.
Is there a way tweak a report so it is Word-export friendly?
