Report in question is an invoice form. It requires an absolutely bottom-of-page aligned footer that has databound elements.
This isÃÂ so that whatever page that footer finally appears on will print in such a way that the address will align in a windowed envelope.
Ironically, Books Online gives this exact scenario in explaining headers and footers in SSRS, but they cleverly don't explain how an absolutely bottom-of-page-aligned and data-bound footer can be made to happen. Headers at absolute page top is obviously no problem. Footers at page bottom, not so much.
