Renaming sheets when exporting SSRS Report to Excel

Another frequently asked questions in many SSRS forums is

How do I rename the sheets when exporting to excel?

When a report is exported to excel, the excel sheets are named based on the report name, which is not a user-friendly one.

Prior to SSRS 2008 R2, there is no way that these names can be controlled. But SSRS 2008 R2 has a new feature which allows the renaming of excel sheets.

Robert Bruckner gives a step by step account of how to achieve this. Have a look at his blog
