I am converting our current reports from Aspose to Telerik because our version of Aspose is way out of date and upgrading costs thousands of dollars.  We currently have sales order totals in our invoice header and it lists packing fees, tax, shipping, discount, subtotal, etc..  However, charges are only displayed if they are greater than 0 so you could have any combination of these items listed.  So, I thought I would just put a table in the header to pull a list of relevant items from the database.  Simple, right?  Why can't I add a table to the report header and what am I supposed to do to display my data?

Hi Paul,

I assume that you are trying to add a Table in the Page Header of the Report. Since the paging of a report strongly depends on the format it is rendered to, this section and its items are processed by the corresponding rendering extension after the report data has been processed. Theretofore it is not possible to insert Data items in this section.
I recommend using Report Header. By default this section is not included in the report. To be able to see it, right click outside of the report and select Report Header. Any control that is placed in the Report Header section is rendered once at the top of the entire report's output, after the first page header section (if any). You might want to hide the Page Header by a right click outside of the report and deselect Page Header. More information can be found in the Report Structure article.
