  • Hi MSurkhi,

    You can use JavaScript to change the content or the text of a button on the page.

    Here is an example to change “Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services” for your reference:

    1. Press F12 in browser and find the id of the div which contains the Report Viewer table.  And check where is the text in the table. In my test, “Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services” is in the first tr and in the first td.

    2. Add a Script Editor web part, then add the following script.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    window.onload = function(){ 
        setTimeout(myfuction,2000); // set the time out for running this script after the page is done loading 
    function myfuction(){
    var el =document.getElementById("ctl00_ctl40_g_fdb925b5_28a8_423e_8442_bcaf054dcf2a_ctl00_ViewerAreaUpdatePanel"); //change the id
    var rows = el.getElementsByTagName('tr'); 
    var cells = rows[0].getElementsByTagName('td'); // get the first tr
    cells[0].innerHTML = "hello"; //change the text

    Best regards,
