Hi
I would like to open an ssrs report directly in Excel via a link.

I have tried &rs:Format=EXCEL and it doesnt seem to work.

Does anyone have any ideas?

thanks in advance

The only way I would of thought to do that, would be to have a subscription which runs the report and exports to excel and saves it on a file share.

Don't think you can get it to open dynamically in excel.

One cannot open SSRS directly in Excel. the only exception is when there is a subscription, which generates an Excel spreadsheet and makes this availalbe for opening and use.

You could design the equivalent report in Excel, and connect it to a SQL datasource.
Not sure Excel has all the functionality you'd get from SSRS Report Designer though.

No problem. Just be cautious because you'll lose a lot of the protection from misuse that SSRS can give you!

Yeah ive thought about that

what i have proposed is that i create a spreadsheet that can be downloaded from the intranet and when it is opened it refreshes the data and then any links to the database are removed

i just need a bit of vba in the spreadsheet Smile

Please bear in mind that this implies that whoever will open the spreadsheet will require at least datareader privileges on the underlying tables in the database.
