I have a report containing a rectangle/tablix attached to a dataset of course details. The rectange contains a number of text boxes showing course details (fields from the dataset: course title, department etc.) and a sub-report which is a list of students
on that course (controlled by passing appropriate parameters). This worked fine until I decided I wanted one of the text boxes (course_title) to repeat on each page whilst printing.
To achieve this I added a column group on course_title and set the header to repeat on each page, as suggested elsewhere on this forum. This works fine when simply viewing the report in BIDS or after deployment (SharePoint), but not when attempting to print,
print preview or convert to another format (e.g. pdf). The report itself runs in a matter of seconds (<10) but the conversion runs for about 90 seconds before aborting (probably due to server settings) and in IE taking the browser down with it. I've tried
not repeating the group header on each page but the problem persists, unless I remove the group altogether. I've also tried adding the student dataset and the list directly into the main report, but that created too many restrictions on the list (e.g. not
enabling list column headers to be repeated on each page).
Is there a known issues with grouping affecting the performance in this way? Are there other ways around any of these p
