Cascade style sheets in reporting services 2005


I have few reports that are created in RS 2005. I have the asp.net page for the parameters which while running calls the report from reporting services.

Now, i want to use the same .css of the asp.net page to the reports also.

Is it possible to control the .css of the reporting services from the asp.net?

Any idea will b highly appreciated

I don't recall if SSRS 2005 is able to use .css, but from my vague memory it seems no.

For SSRS 2008 or SSRS 2008 R2, there are 2 .css files you can customize:

1. customize Report Manager’s appearance by changing its Cascading Style Sheet
(\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10.MSSQLSERVER\Reporting Services\

2. you can change appearance of HTML viewer (HtmlViewer.css)
(\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10.MSSQLSERVER\Reporting Services\ReportServer\Styles)

Hope this helps!

You cannot style the content of a report using a cascading style sheet.  This suggestion has been made a few times and the product team has considered adding this feature.  However, this is just not part of the core product architecture so it's just not something that can easily be added as a feature.
