Add the ability to generate separate tabs for Excel Output
When generating a report with multiple tables provide the ability to send these tables to different workbook tabs when exporting to Excel

This is available in SSRS, where different document map keys map the output to different spreadsheet tabs when outputting to Excel. So if you create a document map with "Summary" and "Detail" separately the data is rendered on two worksheets.

We share the same problem and agree with the proposed solution.

Thank you all for your input. Using the soft page break functionality to create new tabs is a viable option.

I would very much appreciate the support of this as well. Our use would be similar to Wyatt's - Summary tab, 1-to-many Detail tabs. It would make sense to use the page break functionality and just create a separate worksheet tab for each new page.

I know that I can output reports to separate Excel tabs using a Report Book, but that's not a good solution when data dynamically determines how many tabs your report should output. For example, I have an invoice report that outputs in the following group hierarchy.
 Invoice Summary (new tab)
[1 to Many] Facility/Department
Summary (new tab)
Detail (new tab)
Ideally, there would be a report property to export Excel in a mode similar to the Web output, where only explicit page breaks result in new tabs. I cannot believe that isn't a more common request. My clients constantly want summary data paired with detail data. If they said data is in the same Excel tab, converting the detail data to a table, de-merges and re-sizes all the columns, which is a difficult to use, ugly mess.
