  • We are also facing same issue as suggested by Chai Y. Our SSRS Report builder Control is embedded on ASPX page. While opening this page in new window, SSRS Report is displaying but while exporting, blank window is opening and closing automatically without giving dialog. User can not perform “Save As” report to excel.

  • My application is also having the same issue, but it’s not happening every time. No errors were reported in SSRS log files and SSRS db log.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • I have found the work around. I just turn off the “Ask me what to do with download” setting under advance settings for Edge browser then it started to work for me and for other users in my organisation. after the change every time when I click on export button it started showing the download option in browser.
