I am trying to create a report for our CRM system but I am finding that I cannot change the page settings for it. If I export it to Excel I can tinker around with the results but I would rather that I change the actual report than have users manually change it.

While I want this changed I don't want to have to add some third-party software to do this.

That said does anyone have any suggestions on how to accomplish this?

I haven't messed around with it, but have you looked in to the BIDS plugin that comes with the installation media. Have you also installed the Reporting Services portion of it? – RateControl Mar 22 '12 at 1:04

I looked into BIDS yesterday but did not like what I found, it seemed to be a bit much work for editing a single report. I instead opted to manually edit the report in notepad which did achieve desired results. It took some looking around but I was able to find the proper sections to edit. Thanks for your help.
