I have a simple report that has 4 columns.
Section, Subsection, Mandatory, and detail.

The report is grouped by the Section, Subsection, and Mandatory fields.

The page breaks and the report looks as I want it on the preview in the design but it has different page breaks in the HTML preview. And if the actual running of the code, the detail data looks good but the Section and Subsecition never change.

I am using VS 2010,with C# and the most current version of Telerik Reporting. This is an ASP application. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Hello Robert,

The output of a report rendered in HTML and Preview differs because both medias are quite different. The 1st (HTML) is dedicated to displaying information on screen and the page is infinite by width and height; in contrast the 2nd format - image rendering supports physical pages and is meant not only for reading on screen but for printing.

According to whether the format supports physical pages, we separate the export formats on two groups: page-oriented (PDF, Image (print preview), print, XPS, RTF) and non-page oriented (HTML/MHTML, Excel, CSV).

For the page-oriented formats the content layout is on horizontal and vertical pages according the the page settings of the report, while for the rest of the formats take into considerations other characteristics of the media like the grid of the Excel worksheet.

For more info please refer to:

Hi Andrew,

We cannot know what you mean by "on the web it looks like crap......" because you did not explain what exactly is wrong with the view and did not send any report for preview on our end. How the report looks in the web you can see at design-time in the Html Preview.
