I am new to using the Telerik Reporting so hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

I have a Report that contains a crosstab table that displays a series of dynamic columns that will be different for each report run, this is fine but i was wondering if there is anyway to limit the maximum width that this crosstab table can grow to, as at the moment if the number of columns grows beyond a certain number then the data spills onto a new page in the report (this is my issue).  Is it possible to set a max Size for the control.

Also is it possible to change the orientation of a section within the report The report is a Potrait report but it would be useful if for this crosstab that i could switch this section to be landscape as it would alow for more data to be displayed then switch back to landscape.

Thanks in advance

Tony

Hi Anthony,

Due to Telerik Reporting data driven nature, the data items will grow with the data. The only way to limit a data item size is by setting a filter with a Top N operator. This way by limiting the data you will limit the CrossTab's width.

About your second inquiry the page settings are common for the whole report and in order to have a different orientation for some reports our suggestion would be to use a ReportBook. You will have to make a separate report for the CrossTab item and then merge the reports with a ReportBook.
