Hi all.
I have for some time been worikng on a solution that needs to produce labels for chemicals.
The labels need to contain :

H: Header with name and some related info (DS1)(Works ok)
S1: Chemical information 1 (DS2) (Works ok)
S2: Chemical information 2 (DS3) (Works ok)
S3: Chemical Symbols (DS4) (fails)
F: Footer with logo and some other info (DS1)(works-but spills unto page 2)

DS1-4 is four different datasources. They have a common key; id and language.
S1-3 is created with sub-reports
The datasources for the report and the subreport are defined in a LabelsDA class as functions returning a Dataset.

I have several problems :
- The symbols subreport S3, worked, but suddenly stopped working after a Telerik Report upgrade, and im not able to fugure out why.
- Need to have S1-S3 to not overspill and force a page2. How do I keeptogheter averything inside the label-format?
- The designer fails preview and will not let me preview neither the subreports nor the complete report.

Could someone please tell me how this should be done using Telerik reporting?
A woking example would be great.

Size of labels are A5, A6, A7, A8, and Avery would be ok if templates are used.

Hi Alexander,

Unfortunately the provided information is not sufficient to get to the bottom of the issue you are experiencing. We have the following questions:
  • What are the chemical symbols in use?
  • Have you made other changes than upgrading to Q1 2010?
  • What are the errors you get when previewing the S3 SubReport?

Usually the fastest way to resolve an issue is if you prepare a sample runnable report showing the problem you've encountered and once we review it, we would be able to advise you.
