thanks for the response. If you create a subscription to render a report in pdf and open the resultant report in adobe and look at the document properties, you will see that all document properties are blank, with the exception of the "report name" field. When reporting services renders the pdf I would like it to set the adobe document property "Author" equal to my companies name. You don't have an option to set this when creating the subscription, nor in the report definition itself. Is there another way of setting the property, e.g. by using the reporting service config files?
