High Precision Exports
The Aspose.Words for Reporting Services API can export reports to Microsoft Word files to ensure the output document is identical to the original report design produced by Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services' native renderers. Developers can choose between Flow or Positioned Layout modes of the export or try both layout options by simply amending changing configuration settings.
- Flow Layout produces documents that can be edited and consist of tables, paragraphs, sections - this mode is suitable for less skilled designers who are comfortable working with Microsoft Word.
- Positioned Layout produces more complex reports with the very high output fidelity from RDL to Microsoft Word. Matrices, Tables and other complex reporting elements are accordingly exported as Microsoft Word tables and positioned textboxes to ensure the highest fidelity ins maintained.
