Just wanted to see if anyone else has had my problems with reports in a browser. I am creating a report with a pretty complex layout. I have solved the complexity by using many subreports for the different parts of the main report. I have saved all my subreports to Reporting Services on my machine, which is where the database resides, and I have used a main report to tie them all together into the final complex report.
The final report looks good when I run and view it in Report Builder 3.0, but when I saved the main report to RS and ran that from within a browser (IE 9.0), the layout is no longer correct. Specifically, the subreport blocks are being stretched out to the right in some cases, so that the report no longer lines up properly.
There were other issues, but those had to do with subreports stretching downward. I fixed that by going to any TextBox that allowed height to be dynamically increased and turned that off, so they no longer allow dynamic increase. Then, since many of these textboxes are small, with small font, I took off all padding and set vertical and horizontal alignment to Middle/Center. This fixed the downward stretching issues. I am not sure what's causing the stretching out to the right, though.
P.S. - I can't even start to get this going in Firefox, since there are broken images showing up everywhere in my report when I try rendering in Firefox 14.0.1. Any ideas about that would be helpful too. I clicked on a few of the broken images and found that all the links referenced a Blank.gif from my RS server. IE doesn't have any problem with this at all. Other issues are evident as well, again it's the stretching right, but in different places and amounts than in IE. Thoughts?
Thanks for the help
