Export Format options missing in aspose.cells excel add in

Hi,

I am trying to use Aspose.cells for Reporting Services for existing SSRS reports which are built using VS 2012.

I have added Aspose.cells as Add in for Excel, opened rdl file. I coould set up connections to reporting server.

However, when I try to ‘View Report’, on ‘Report Parameters’ windows, I have entered all the parameter values but the drop down for ‘Export Format’ is empty. hence, I am not able to view the report.
Please help.
Thank you

@sbommi1,

Moreover, please confirm if you have installed Aspose.Cells for Reporting Services on SQL Reporting Services server? Aspose.Cells for Reporting Services client gets export formats from SQL Reporting Services server.

Thank you.

Thank you. I have installed Aspose.cells on Reporting server and I can see export formats.

However, I am trying to create a simple report with few columns from a table but I get this error when I try to build data set.
