Blank columns being added to excel with aspose

i am running aspose.cell with Report builder 3.When i
export the file to standard excel ,the file looks good(no blank
columns), i am able to pivot this report.

When exporting with one
of the aspose excel options, blank columns are in between a few of the
fields, thus resulting in a report that cant be pivoted, i have checked
column and row alignment, everything is fine, yet this does not resolve
my issues…Please advise if their is something else i can try, as this
issue only occurs when using the aspose functionality

Thanks in advance

I would upoad a example but nothing is being added to this post

I have tried addinig it as an excel doc/zip file and the rdl file

If it makes any difference.

Thank you.

Hi Amjad,

please find attached file as per initial query , which i couldnt attach with my initial request.

I have installed the version that you recommended and executed reports and tested again,to no avail.

, i hope you can see something i am missing,this was a rdl file from report writer 2008(report writer 3)

Thanks in advance



Thanks for providing us the template Excel files and RDL file.

I have logged a ticket for your issue with an id: SSRS-40020. We will soon figure it out and let you know here.

Thank you.


We have checked and fixed the issues.

Please download and try the fixed version: Aspose.Cells for Reporting Services V1.8.0.15.

Please update Aspose.Cells.ReportingServices.dll in following folder:

${SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services}\Reporting Services\ReportServer\bin.

If you need to use excel pivot table, we suggest you to try Aspose.Cells for Reporting Services Report Designer to design new report to support pivot table.

Please refer to working with pivot table section of the Aspose.Cells for Reporting Services user guide.


i updated the dll file as requested, the blank cells are still coming up as original problem mentioned, we are still using the trila version, but would like to buy the full package, but it doesnt help if we arent able to view files correctly.

I dont think the trila version comes with the pivot app you mentioned, also it is very difficult to rewrite all our reports in Aspose asn we have a large amount of SSRS reports,

Pplease advise on what to do now.
