Reporting Services Excel rendering extensions?

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment


Our company has a reporting solution utilizing Analysis services + Reporting Services, with excel reports being a priority. Everything’s sort of fine, but several annoying things are bothering us:

  • No ability to rename the sheets
  • Embedded images stretch the containing cells vertically, thus making scrolling a pain
  • Cross-sheet links are not supported (turns out that can be implemented using bookmarks)

So my question is basically this – should we try solving these issues somehow (i.e. is that even possible), or should we use some excel rendering extension with more formatting options ? Can you recommend any extensions ?

How to&Answers:

You may want to take a look at Apose.Cells. I’ve never used their products, but you can download a free trial and see if it suits your needs.

Alternatively, you can create custom renderer (MSDN)
