We upgraded to SSRS 2014, reports started working and data was rendered. Wait, now the toolbar started appearing in multiple rows. For smaller resolution screens, this was not acceptable. I could not find any solution or fix by Microsoft for SSRS 2014, though I could find a workaround that worked for me.
This workaround requires me to modify the ReportViewer.aspx file.
The ReportViewer.aspx file is located under Pages Folder at %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS12.MSSQLSERVER\Reporting Services\ReportServer\Pages.
The folder name and path may differ based on the SQL Version and installation location, the path provided above is generalized.
- Take backup of original ReportViewer.aspx file, just in case the changes have to be restored.
- Open ReportViewer.aspx,
- find meta Tag
- Replace the content property with content="IE=EmulateIE10; IE=Edge" in the tag
- Restart the SSRS service
- Try the report now, it should work
- It it does not work, then try different options in the content, example: IE=EmulateIE7 etc.
Changing this option will try to Emulate the Report with version specified in order.
