Textbox Spanning Over Two Pages RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have a SSRS 2008 report which builds a "Travel Document" for my clients. This travel document includes HTML-formatted instructions and tips for travelling to a destination. All of the information is loaded as HTML and displays just fine on the report. The dataset holds one paragraph in each record/row.

    My problem is with how SSRS handles page breaks. If one paragraph is too big to fit at the bottom of the current page, SSRS moves the whole paragraph to the next page, leaving a unsightly blank space on the previous page.

    The report uses a tablix with a detail row (as a textbox + placeholder for HTML formatting) for each paragraph.

    Is there a way to tell the textbox/placeholder to allow itself to be split over two pages if it can't fit entirely on one page?
    Here is a quick diagram of what I'm trying to do:

    Thanks,

    Vince
