I am looking for a way to change the text in the export format dropdown of a report on the SQL Reporting server (2005). For example, currently, one of the dropdown items is named: Web archive. I would like to change that to say: Web archive (.mhtml).

I've done some searching on google, but couldn't find any satisfactory answer. I have also searched through both config files in the Report Services folder of the instance in question, but found nothing.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Found the answer.

You can use the OverrideName xml tag to rename the display name of an export format. See this Microsoft article.
