We have recently upgraded our CRM system from 3.0 to 4.0. Since then we are
having troubles with our reports.
Whenever we export the report to excel format, the file which is created in
CRM 4.0 has name as some "GUID".xls. Not just the name of the file, the sheet
contianing the output also has GUID as the name. This applies to other
formats also (output file name contains GUID).
I can save the rename the file as something else. But we have subscriptions
over most of our reports which sends out excel output of the report to a set
Instead of uploading the RDL from CRM 4.0, if i can upload the report to
some other SSRS folder and give a link, it will work. But we dont want to do
Can anyone help me with this?
Not sure, but it's possible to try create custom render extention for Excel. Change the Render method from article as it was proposed by this comment with the only difference - use excel format:
You may add this renderer as a new custom extention (you will have to change subscription format then) or replace existing excel extention - see Specifying Rendering Extension Parameters in Configuration Files
