    Can someone give me instructions on how to do a page break?  I see other posts referring to PageBreak.Before, After, and none but I can't find anything in the standalone report designer Q2 2014.

    I have one group that I would like a page break before the header when the 2nd grouping begins to show.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It appears there are multiple types of groups:  Parent, Child, Adjacent, Inside and Outside.  Usually when I add a group my report runs forever and does not return a result set.  Could someone point me to documentation explaining why I would use one versus another?  I'm just trying to do the most basic grouping.  I'll attach a picture of my desired output.  Thanks.

    Hi Steve,

    PageBreak is available for the sections of the report. More info here. It does not matter whether you are using the Standalone Designer or the Visual Studio one for this scenario.

    In case you are using a table to display the information, there is no page break option for the table/table groups.

    Parent, Child, Adjacent refer to the place to insert a group inside a table group hierarchy relative to the currently selected group.
    Inside, Outside refer to the place and group where you can insert a new row/column in the table structure.
    The terms are self explanatory for the most part. More info on these concepts here.
