Since SP2 was installed on our SSRS server a couple of days ago, reports viewed in the client Report Viewer control (with or without VS SP1) show a black background when in Print Layout Mode. All other rendering options work fine. Local reports are fine - only remote ones affected.

Anyone else seeing this

P.S. sorry for cross post to SSRS forum.

This only occurs on some machines. Can you try updating the video driver

No, occurs on all machines. Makes no difference whether I use the viewer from VS SP1 or not, and it's only a problem in Print Layout. Could it be something to do with the "fixes" for metric paper size I'm using A4 with measurements in cm...

This is an issue with the image renderer in Report Server 2005 SP2. It is not related to metric units. We are working on a fix. As a workaround, you can set your report background color to white explicitly (it defaults to transparent).

Can I set the BG colour for the whole report or do I need to set each individual section - page header, body, footer And that for all 100 or so reports {-<

How soon will the hotfix be out

It would need to be set for each section, but not for each individual report item. The fix is being tested now. You should contact Microsoft support to get it.

Brian,
Is there a QFE number for this patch

Thanks,
Graham

No. A QFE would be generated as a result of the support call.

Brian,

Thanks for the info. I did not know that. Makes sense now that I think about it..


BTW, I have opened a support call with under my premier support dev contract for this issue. The team told me 2-3 weeks at the min. For now the known workaround is to set the background of your report to White or Non-Transparent.
