SSRS 2008 - Export Report

One of the widely used features in Reporting Services is the use of Export functionality. The formats I have seen folks in the business I work for is Excel followed By .pdf files. Excel exports are very popular with analysts for obivious reasons like working with numbers and trying come up with trends. The .pdf format gets used a lot in canned reports like situations. One of the export formats which has been becoming popular with the users here is the MHTML format. This format is available in the drop down list for the export options. One of the plus points using this format it is very easy on printing and displays report without any added controls or formats, it gives the user more real estate to view the report(s).
