In an SSRS 2012, I am going to have some selected colunmns set as invisibile while the ssrs 2012 report is running. However when the report is exported only to excel and csv files, I want those invisible columns to be included in the export.
What I have set so far is: set the columns's visibility property. =IIF(Globals!RenderFormat.Name="EXCEL",false,true) And then set this column's DataElementOutput property to "Output".
The above works fine for excel and does give me the output data for CSV.
The problem is the column header for the csv file is also exported like it is a separate data column. Basically the csv file looks like the following:
textbox23 custname customerName Doug Smith
Thus can you tell me how to export a csv file that will not display the csv column header textbox?
