Matrix shifting existing items to the right


  • Hello ladies and gentlemen,

    our team has a big problem with SSRS reports.

    We had a good looking report and decided to add a matrix below other existing items.

    When we create a new matrix with fixed number of columns (13) then this matrix shifts other items above to the right.

    It shifts the second chart, the textblock and so on.

    And we don't want them to be shifted. Can this bug we fixed somehow?

    With best wishes,

    Dmitry Orlov

  • A matrix has a dynamic number of columns. That is its whole purpose. If you want a fixed number of columns, use a table.

    That said, I have experienced similar issues with various SSRS controls, not just matrix. It seems that even when they do not overlap at design time, they may do so at runtime. That causes elements in close proximity to shift. Try moving your matrix farther down leaving a large gap between it and the nearest control. If the shifting stops, move the matrix closer until it is as close as possible without shifting other controls.
