[Solved] Annoying Scrollbars in Excel Web Access Web Parts and PerformancePoint w/ Excel Services

Recently, while using Excel Services to access PivotCharts and PivotTables within Excel Web Viewer Web Parts and PerformancePart Dashboards, I encountered vertical and horizontal scrollbars that would not go away, no matter how much I tried resizing.

god don’t like ugly

To accomplish the above, you have to do two things.

  1. In Dashboard Designer, set the sizing of your Excel report to auto.
  2. This is what got me: published PivotCharts and PivotTables should not be on a dedicated sheet in Excel. They must be embedded as an object within a spreadsheet.

everything is right in the world

If you continue to experience scroll bars, resize your chart within Excel and republish. From there, you may need to modify the size of your web part in its properties.
