FIX: The column header ID incorrectly contains prefix information when you use the "ReportViewer" control of Visual Studio 2010 to run a report locally

Applies to: Visual Studio 2010


Consider the following scenario:
  • You display a report on a webpage by using the Microsoft Report Viewer 10.0 in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.
  • You configure the ReportViewer control to process reports locally.
  • You enable the AccessibleTablix setting that is an HTML device information setting for the report.
In this scenario, the column header ID incorrectly contains prefix information. Therefore, the header tag of each row does not match the column header ID.

Note This issue does not occur if you configure the ReportViewer control for remote processing.


This issue occurs because the prefix information that only exists for local mode processing is incorrectly appended to the ID information in the ReportViewer control.
