Hi,

I have a report with multiple sub reports.  I have tried to set every KeepTogether property to false but everything still comes up on one page.  What else should I be looking for?

Thanks,
Darren

Hi Darren ,

You've forgotten to mention the most important thing - the format in which you render the report. Each supported rendering extension has its own peculiarities and limitations and the reports do not look the same in all formats. For example, KeepTogether would be ignored when the report is rendered in HTML, due to the fact that it is not a page oriented format. More info in Design Considerations for HTML Rendering.

Okay,  I'm rendering them as HTML.  I didn't see anything on there that tells me how to get multiple pages.  Are you saying my keep together properties are wrong?  I'll play with them.  I think I had to set them to false so I wouldn't get a blank first page....

Thanks,
Darren

Hello Darren,

I guess you are not reading carefully: "Due to the fact that HTML is not a page oriented format, report sections cannot be split and therefore KeepTogether property is ignored (always set to true) in HTML Rendering."

and "Each report section is rendered as a separate HTML table."

which means that ALL report items placed in a single section would be always in a single page.

Best wishes,

Hello Darren,

There is nothing to fix as this is not a bug, but limitation of the HTML format which does not have a concept for physical pages and the "pages" you see in HTML rendering are "logical" pages based on the specification provided in the Design considerations topic I provided in previous reply.
