SSRS 2008 - repeating a non column header column on every page

Hi - I am working on my first SSRS report and I have mostly all of it down except one issue. Per requirements, I need to display a column that is a non header column to repeat on every page while printing and or when I save the generated report in SSRS as a PDF file. I have seen some previous blog from 2007 where RepeatWith property is recommended to be set to the same name of the Tablix in which the column(s) are embeded, tried that but it is not working. Can any one help me on this or guide me how to resolve this? Thanks, Manny

SSRS 2008 group footer totals on a new page has a non-expected large cell height

SSRS 2008 group footer totals on a new page has a non-expected large cell height. When the group total is the first component on a new page, then this happens, but when it is part of the group on but not the first component, then it reverts to normal cell height. I have played with the advance settings now for hours, but cannot get this to work. Any ideas?

SSRS Report printing blank first page




I have a pretty basic SSRS report that has a table header, body (with a table), and table footer.  When I view the report in normal layout,all is well.  However, when I switch to print layout only the table header and table footer are displayed on the first page.  I don't see any of my table data until page two.  So, this is adding an additional page to the beginning of the report and it's make a 17 page report 18 pages.  And because I am including the page numbers on the report, this is noticeable to the users of the report obviously.  Any feedback on things I could do or check to remove this blank page would be greatly appreciated. 



Exporting one particular page from SSRS report



I have developed a report using 2 sub-reports. The report data spans across many pages.
User wants to export one of the sub-report in TIFF format.

Is this possible? Can I export one particular page using export option? Here I don't know the exact page number as well because sub-report may get displayed on any page 2,3.4 etc.

Font/letter spacing issue when printing from SSRS 2008 report page


We are developing reports in SSRS 2008.  When printing from the SSRS report page, we are seeing that that some text is "clumping" together or spaced oddly. I have tried a variety of printers so it's not printer-specific. If you export from the SSRS page to PDF or to Word and then print, everything prints as expected.

Nothing is as good as real text/names/data, but to reproduce, simply create several text boxes with...

I used several common fonts...
Arial, 10 pt (SSRS 2008 default)
Times New Roman, 12 pt (Office 2003 default)
Calibri, 11 pt (Office 2007 default)
Verdana, 11 pt
Tahoma, 11 pt

In the example above, I used normal weight, nothing fancy... If you use bold and underline, which is common for a page/column header or footer, this issue is even more apparent.

It feels similar to the following issue: https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/482312/ssrs-report-font-rendering-issue

A workaround would obviously be to export to PDF and then print, but these are steps that our end users shouldn't have to (and won't want to) put up with to produce reports/invoices/etc. that ultimately go

Page Breaks within tablix (SSRS 2008)



page breaks seem to be a real issue in SSRS, according to the number of posts, but I haven't found a solution for my problem yet.

My report contains a tablix which is used to group the data by keys. The tablix has one column and one row, and this cell contains several subreports which get their data from another table depending on the keys of the groups. This works quite well. However, I would like to insert a page break in between the subreports. I tried inserting a rectangle with the PageBreak property set to Start and/or End, but this is ignored. Page breaks in the subreports themselves are also ignored. Having the subreports in rectangles with PageBreak property set to Start or End is ignored as well.

The only way I have found to force page breaks is cross-joining my query of the main report with a table containing page numbers, add the page number field as the last grouping in SSRS and check the "Page breaks between each instance of the group", then showing or hiding the subreports conditionally depending on the page number retrieved from the database. However, this obviously multiplies the amount of retrieved data by the number of pages and is therefore a rather slow approach.

How can I insert a page break between rows of a tablix or even within one row?

SSRS 2005 to 2008 upgrade: exporting to .PDF does not produce the same result


We have recently converted .rdl SSRS 2005 files to SSRS 2008 .rdl files. We do not have SSRS 2008 R2, we are working with the  first release. We are seeing issues when exporing a report to .pdf format:

1) when rendered in HTML, the function that displays page numbers (ie:page 1 of 2) for the report are correct. The standard function "Globals!TotalPages" is used to get the count of pages. We previewed a report in html in reports manager that had 1777 pages. when the report is exported to .pdf the last page displays page 1777 of 1816, even though there is no more pages beyond 1777.

2)When rendering the report in html a value is shown as "Caretaker1" but when exporting to adobe .pdf version 9.3, the same value is shown as "Caretaker2".

3)   One of our issues is

SSRS 2005 Report Printing Additional Blank Page



New to SSRS 2005 and having some problems printing. I have a report that has only 7 columns and while in layout mode, the body of the report only has a width of not even 7 inches. I have made my left margin 0.2 in, RM at 0 in, TM at 0 in and BM at 0 in as well and yet when I print, I get an additional blank page. All my records print in the first page just fine but I get the additional blank page. This also happens to me on a different report when I change the settings for landscape printing. I am able to fit all the columns in one page using landscape but get an additional blank page for every page that is printed. So instead of printing just two pages of records, I get 2 additional blank pages.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Page numbering issue in SSRS 2008 R2 when converting to PDF

For rdl files created in SSRS 2008, the page numbering will render Page 1 of 0 but only for PDF.  Using OverallTotalPages instead of TotalPages only works on a 2008 R2 server.  On 2008, OverallTotalPages causes an error.

How do I get the page numbering to work on PDF without using OverallTotalPages?  I need to be able to change the files, do testing, then updgrade the SSRS instance.  I can't break existing SSRS 2008 reports.
