Hallo everyone,

i'm developing some reports for a customer and now have to create a "order report".

This report should be "ready for mail" after printend. For this i need the following structure:

Report Intro (only on the first page at the first position, contains company logo, adress data of the recipient etc.)
Page Header (repeats on every page, contains some more detailed data)
Detail Area (contains order positions)
Page Footer (some legal informations)

Now i dont't get it how to do this with Telerik Report.

In Telerik Report i can choose a Report Header, Page Header, the Groups and a Page / Report Footer.
But the Problem is, that on the first Page the Page Header is shown at first, not the Report Header. But i need something that is in front of the Page Header. How can i do this? Is there something like a "Report Intro" that i can use? Or is there a trick i didn't discover?

Please help me :)

Regards,
Michael

Hi Michael,

As explained in Why does the page header appear before the report header? - a report can be viewed as "document content", consisting of detail, report header and footer sections. Similar to Word, document content is centered on the screen with page header and footer sections above and below the content. Page headers and footers are not related to the report itself, but are relative to the margins of the report's media, i.e. to the paper or screen.

Our suggestion for your scenario would be to create an unbound group (no grouping criteria specified) with a Group Header PrintOnEveryPage property set to true. This will force the Group Header to behave as a Page Header that will be rendered after the Report Header.

All the best,
