SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that is running Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 (SP3).
  • You have a SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services report that contains a text box.
  • The leading characters in the text box are spaces. Or, the text box has a multiline text block which contains new-line characters. The new lines that follow the first line contain spaces.
In this scenario, the leading spaces in the text box or the spaces in lines that follow the first line of a text block may be truncated when you export the report to a PDF file.
