Getting Rid of Extra Columns on SSRS Reports
How to remove extra columns when exporting SSRS reports to Excel
by Mickie Stamm

I wanted to follow up my tip the from last newsletter. Sometimes even when you are able to look at all the report objects at 400% and they all look perfectly lined up, you can still get extra hidden columns when you export your report to Excel.


One way that I have been able to address this is to change the width of all the objects that I want to line up together to be the same exact number of points. The important part of this is to use points instead of another measurement. For example, using the same exact number of inches does not produce the same results.


To help with translating existing column widths, 1 inch = 72 points.
