Embedded hyperlinks are broken in exported SSRS-based reports


In exported SSRS-based reports embedded links may be disabled.


When an SSRS-based report is exported, the links may be disabled by Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services depending on the export option:
  • Report generated by an external SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) server and exported as Adobe PDF file: all links are disabled.
  • Report generated by an external SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) server and exported as MS Excel file: the links refer to drill-down reports on the SSRS server and available for viewing through a web browser. 
  • If a report is generated by the default Veeam ONE report viewer and exported both as Adobe PDF file and MS Excel file, all links are also disabled.


This is an expected behavior of Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services.
