I've a report with 9 sub-reports all in detail section. I specified page break in the sub-reports. In Designer Preview, i see 12 pages for the entire report. When i view the report from report viewer, i see only one page comprising all the reports. But when i export it to pdf, i can see the 12 pages in the pdf. Why does the report in reportviewer behaves differently? It should be same as in preview is it? Is there anyway to show the report correctly in the reportviewer?

Another problem is,
I've a PictureBox object having a big image (say A4 size). In Designer Preview, i'm able to see the image clearly. But when i view from reportviewer, i cannot see full image or i don't see image at all. But when i export to pdf, i'm able to see the image in the pdf. Why does this happens? Any solution to fix this?

Hi Sivam,

The HTML rendering extension is used when the report is shown in the Web Report Viewer, which has no concept of physical page, and in it the sections are kept together. Our suggestion is to use the Silverlight Report Viewer or to display a PDF directly in the browser without exporting first.

About the PictureBox it sounds like you have overlapped Report items. Since report items are located in different cells they cannot overlap. If you have overlapping items the result of these items would be undetermined i.e. it would break the original report layout. In case of two or more items that have exactly the same locations only the first item is rendered, the others would not be rendered at all. In general avoid having overlapping report items at design-time if you plan to export the report to HTML. 

Different formats' peculiarities and limitations are described in Design Considerations for Report Rendering help section.

Sincerely yours,
Peter
