Background image in SSRS exporting to word as page colour - fill effect

Hi,

I am newbie so please take it easy on me. I have an SSRS report where I've included a background image on the report. When I export to word and print from Word to printer or pdf, the picture is tiled on the page. I am guessing this is due to the background image being exported as a fill effect.

Could you please advise?

Thanks.

Raj.

Hi Dmitry,

Just wondering how you going with this?

Hi,

Sorry for delay. After further investigation it appeared to be a known Microsoft Word issue, or specifics, reported in different sources, for example here:

http://help.lockergnome.com/office/Inserted-Background-Image-tiling-background--ftopict613425.html

As discussed in the topic, it seems like the only way to change the behaviour of the image while printing is inserting it not as a background image, but as a watermark (floating image anchored to the header). Would it satisfy you?

Thanks.

Hi Dmitry,

Since I am creating a report via SSRS and am trying to get this to work, you wouldnt have instructions on how to insert the image as a watermark?

Raj.

Hi Raj,

Sorry for delayed response. It seems like there is an easier way to avoid tiling - all we need is simply use the background picture as a texture! At least it looks as expected on my printer now.

I will provide you with an intermediate build containing the fix shortly so that you could try it on your end.

Thanks.
