    Any one using MS reporting services with Excel (Office 2000


  • This was removed by the editor as SPAM

  • I just read in BOL that in order to export you have to be using the latest version of Office - XP 2002 or later, I believe. 

    I'm getting the same garbled result.

  • That's right.  The CLIENT needs office XP or later to export to Excel.  I got around this problem by setting up a subscription to email the Excel file to the user.


  • This issue apparently is going to be addressed in an upcoming (June/July) SP of Reporting Services.  See also in thread

    This SP is intended to give export support to versions back to Excel 97, by exporting in binary interchange format.
