imo your expectations of exporting from SSRS to Word are unrealistic as there is no guarantee that what is output into Word (or Excel) will be cosmetically exactly the same as what you see in SSRS.  Recommend either exporting to Adobe .pdf (which won't allow user edits), or some kind of flat file without the cosmetics.

Also be advised it's not abundantly best practice to export an SSRS report into anything editable, as that would allow users to edit the report and then come back to you with any differences, which would be a support stream you don't need.
