SQL 2005 Reporting services.

In my report, when I format a column as a Percentage,the percent % pushes the % sign to a new line.
Example; 34
%

Instead of 34%

If I remove the formatting, obviously the number is no longer a percentage but it still is on the same line, there is no new line introduced.

Anyone have an idea for how I can fix this problem?

Thanks

Gary

Make the column width a bit bigger?

Thanks for the reply but
I had increased the width of the column many times in a effort to resolve the problem, before I posted my question.

Sorry for the delay. I have just now been able to get back to this.

I have two screen shots, one from Internet Explorer and one from Chrome.

In I.E. the report displays the columns correctly.
In Chrome the columns are "compressed".

Anyone have a fix for this?

Thanks

Gary

My guess is that SSRS 2005 doesn't really support chrome.
You can either upgrade to a later edition or use Internet Explorer.


Or maybe Chrome has an add-in that has some backwards compatibility rendering for IE, like FireFox has.
