Aspose.Cells for Reporting Services


Aspose.Cells for Reporting Services is a rendering extension for SQL Server Reporting Services to embed the ability to read, write and manipulate Excel spreadsheets into their own SSRS applications without relying on Microsoft Excel.

Exporting RDL Reports To Excel File Formats

Aspose.Cells for Reporting Services allows you to deliver native Excel reports in Reporting Services on Microsoft SQL Server 2000, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2014, as well as in Microsoft Report Viewer 2005 and 2008. Unlike the native renderer for Excel based reports - Aspose.Cells for Reporting Services provides an extended feature set and allows RDL / RDLC reports to be converted to: Excel XLS, SpreadsheetML, XLSX, XLSM, XLSB, CSV, HTML, ODS and TXT formats.


Aspose.Cells Reports Designer Tool

Users can design and deliver reports into Microsoft Excel directly using Aspose.Cells.Report.Designer - this is our simple and easy to use design tool that uses Microsoft Excel as a report template. Users can therefore take advantage of all the powerful functionality and features available within Microsoft Excel including pivot tables, interactive charts, formulas etc.

These attributes are not supported by the standard Microsoft Excel format delivered by Reporting Services. Moreover Aspose.Cells.Report.Designer can create reports in both types of report definition format to support Microsoft SQL Server 2000, 2005 or 2008 Reporting Services.

Flexible Display Options

Aspose.Cells for Reporting Services gives you complete control over page setup and allows you to manipulate a wide range of display options such as: preview page breaks and set zoom level for the worksheet, control data visibility using freeze panes, set page orientation, scaling, paper size, headers and footers, and print area.

Excel Worksheet Security Features

Data Handling

Aspose.Cells for Reporting Services supports tables with grouped rows and footers. The grouping of rows and footers can be setup at design time like other report items. Aspose.Cells for Reporting Services also supports parameters and global variables as report data sources. Users can also make use of Microsoft Query for creating data sources and queries; this is a widely used tool and familiar to most users.

In addition to this, Aspose.Cells for Reporting Services supports both report specific data sources and shared data sources created on Report Server in advance. Moreover users can use report specific data sources at design time and specify shared data sources as report data sources while publishing reports.
