Chained reports? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a report which is possibly multi-page, and uses a different background image in each of the header, body, and footer sections.

     

    I would like to follow this with a summary page, which has a few fields and a background image, no header and footer.  How can I either make this summary page a part of the main report, or chain it so that it is printed along with the main, without messing up the pagination of the main report?

    Hello,

     

    Since you dont need headers/footers in your summary page, create it separately in another rdl.  In your first report add a rectangle to the end and set a PageBreakOnStart on it.  Then put the a subreport item into the rectangle and have it reference the new summary page you just created. 

     

    Hope this helps.

  • Hello  dwatson,

     

    You can set the properties 'Print On First Page' for your header and footer to false, this way they won't be shown in the first page. You can add the data you want in your summary page in a 'Rectangle' for example and set the property ' insert a page break after' the rectangle. What would happen is that in the first page you should get the rectangle with the summary data, and not header and footer. The rectangle would break the page, and you get the rest of the report (with header and footer) from the second page on.

     

    Thanks
