SSRS invoke Excel printing format


I created a SSRS report and set the report properties to landscape, tabloid and 17 x 11 printing format. When user goes online and ran the report and export it to Excel the predefined printing format did not take place. I do not think SSRS cannot invoke the Excel printing format. I need something that SSRS can export data to my predefined printing Excel format and that user can pick from online or intranet. Also on the report I have group by section and bold the line on each new group. Can all these be done on Aspose product?
