SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services: Change the worksheet name in Reporting Services 2005

Hello Folks,

I want to change the default worksheet name i.e. sheet1, sheet2….. to my custom sheet name e.g. customsheet1, customsheet2…… while exporting in reporting services 2005.
I found that it is not possible to give your worksheets a custom name in reporting service 2005.  If report has only one worksheet, it will be the name of the report.  If it is multiple sheets, it will be named like Sheet1, Sheet2... SheetN.  
There is no way to change this, but we certainly hope to add this feature in a future release.
That feature was added in the 2008 R2 release

I also find that it can be possible using office writer but I did not find any tutorial which defines the integration between reporting services and office writer

Could anyone assist me to solve this problem with alternate?

Best Regards,
Mohit Pandit

Hi,
I have not done this before but I found an interesting article / blog entry which describes how to export the data as XML and using XSLT to reformat the result where you can now also set the worksheet names. The process is somehow complicated but at least it is an additional option:

Yes, you are correct. It looks complex one.

Could you please provide alternate?
