What’ New SQL Server 2012: Reporting Services Office based Renderers

With SQL Server 2012, Reporting Services, both Excel and Word rendering now creates a Office 2007-2010 compatible files. These files are also compatible with Excel/Word 2003.

Excel based files have the extension .xlsx, while the word based files have .docx extensions.

In addition, there are several other enhancements with the excel rendering

  1. Max row limitation of excel 2003 (65K) rows is no longer applicable. Now the max number of rows per worksheet can be over 1 million.
  2. Maximum columns per worksheet is 16,384.
  3. Number of colors allowed in a worksheet is approximately 16 million (24-bit color).
  4. ZIP compression provides smaller files sizes.

With word rendering, the .docx files are much smaller than the previously created .doc files.
