We need to set the group header and group footer as per the attached image.

We are having a 4 list objects (Q1 Sales Region,Q2 Sales Region...) inside the group section, there we are able to filter the records based on the group header information (EmployeeName) but not able to set the height of the group header section.If we specify the height as per the attached image and tried to generate report in PDF, the data is exported but with extra blank pages.

We tried with "tables,panels,Group header along with detail section" but nothing has worked out. Kindly please provide the solution as early as possible.

Regards
Sankar

Hi Sankar,

Extra blank pages may appear when there is an item which width does not fit ibnto the provided space for the report. If that is the case you can either adjust the physical page width in the PageSettings or ensure the content fits the available space.
You can try coloring the report items and sections in different colors to find the one spreading outside bounds.
In addition, if you use Table/Crosstab item, we have fixed an issue with over-growing headers in the latest internal build v7.0.12.228

Let us know if you have any further questions.

All the best,

Hi Stef
Thanks for your response. We are using the list object to render the information, but not able to provide the fixed height for it. If we provide the height, it is considering the height for each records inside the list.

Structure we followed:
->[Parent]Group Header -> Group by EmployeeName [Filter]
     ->[Child] Group Header ->  Empty Filter
           -> 4 List Objects - Where we are again do the filtering and getting the records.
      ->[Child] Group Footer
->[Parent]Group Footer

Is there any way to provide the fixed height for Child Group Header?

Currently we are not able to provide the fixed height for the child group header (there only we placed 4 list objects).Because of that we are facing the alignment issue.

For instance: if we have more records for a particular employee and it is span across two pages, the second page's footer is not at the bottom of the page, It's dynamically changes places according to data. Please refer the image Footer_Not_Fixed.jpg (attached here.)Irrespective of records, we need footer should be at the bottom of the report as per Expected_format.jpg (attached here)

If you have any other idea to render this report in some other way, please let me know.

Thanks

Hello Sankar,

The way you have drawn the image 'Page n of N' can be only in the PageFooterSection as it uses the PageCount and PageNumber global objects. Thus in PrintPreview the PageFooterSection is always rendered at the bottom of the page which settings are provided through the PageSettings property of the report.

You can find attached a possible implementation using List/Table items with rotated layout.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
