SSRS producing multiple worksheets in EXCEL

We are using SSRS to send report output to Excel.  Our issue is that for each control break in a report Excel an additional worksheet.  For example, if a report is grouped by Fund then each new Fund produces a separate worksheet.  For a report containing 25 Funds we get a spreadsheet that contains 25 worksheets.  What we really want is a single worksheet which  contains the entire report.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Mary

Afaik the only way to guarantee this happens is to create an SSIS project, with your SSRS report's Data Set that you're trying to print out as the source, and the Excel doc as the destination.

You could use the Globals!RenderFormat.Name property to hide/show tablixes.  So you'll have two tablixes: the one with the grouping for interactive use and then an additional one without grouping that gets exported to Excel.
