technique to control an automatically expanding matrix column group RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello guys
    I have a .rdlc with a matrix control. the matrix has its column header cell grouped.
    At runtime the data detail field expands horizontally on one line causing the report width to increase, which is expected.
    but how do i control the length to  which it expands i.e specify the number of columns that expand on a line and cause it to continue on the next line
    so that i can preserve the original length of my report.

    illustration:     data1      data2      data3      data4       data5 ...................             datan (not appropriate)
    would want the matrix to expand as        data1         data2        data3
                                                               data4        data5         .......
