SSRS: Export tooltips to Excel as comments
It would be nice if exporting a report to Excel resulted in the tooltips travelling with it and appearing in Excel as comments.

Thanks for writing in with this feature request. While this feature isn’t available yet, we’ve flagged it for consideration for a future release of SQL Server Reporting Services.
How shit that you can’t do this already!! How did they never bloody think of this? Multi-billion dollar company, and they can’t think of anything innovative. Even Apple are better than Microsoft.<=-=Apr 4 2013 12:42PM=-=>
Having worked with multiple companies over the years in the BI space there are two primary export/save as scenarios for the displayed report, Excel or PDF. When exporting to Excel, business clients invariably want all the richness of the report preserved to the extent possible. Lost tooltips is one example, charts rendered as bitmaps with no data behind is another.
We hope SSRS is actually moving to the right along the maturity scale and will adopt some of the basics as core tenets of the product.<=-=Jan 28 2014 3:37AM=-=>
Hello SSRS Team,
Is it possible now ?? I am using VS 2010 and working one rdlc report which has tooltip. I want after Export to Excel inline tooltip to be Exported to Excel in form of comments. Or is there any workaround for this ??
Any updates SSRS team? Not a feature I’d use all the time, but when I need it there’s no good alternative.
Thanks!<=-=May 21 2015 2:54AM=-=>
Has this been added in SQL Server 2014 SSRS?<=-=Jun 29 2016 10:06AM=-=>
Wow… 7 years in consideration and feature is still missing…<=-=Sep 23 2016 5:02AM=-=>
4 years since my last comment and no progress. SSRS is being killed off by Microsoft to make way for options that earn them more cash… Forgetting about everyone else.<=-=Feb 22 2017 11:50AM=-=>
Are we still without this functionality? Any solution, after 11 years?<=-=Mar 31 2017 6:24AM=-=>
Yes, it would be a very nice feature

I get asked for this on a daily basis, please please add this feature :)
"Where has this figure come from" is often answered in SSRS as a tooltip showing the maths behind the figure - which is completely lost when exported to Excel.
