I designed my report using the Report Viewer control. The data on my report is not tabular. It is a fixed-field form that spans several pages. I set the data source to a collection of an object that I developed and all the data for the report comes from my collection (which will always only have one item in it).
The report seems to be working fine, I setup a header and footer. When my code refreshes the report, my data is displayed nicely on the report as i designed it. However, when I convert to Print view, the report seems to be inserting page breaks while rendering. my nice little 4-page form becomes a 10 page report with page breaks occurring on every other page and some extra at the end.
What can I look at to determine why these extra page breaks occur in the rendering process? I thought it may be page layout related, so I changed the margins to all zeros and still see the additional page breaks.
Also, another thing I noticed is that when I added the footer, the footer height is about 2.5 inches and the designer will not allow me to change it.
Thanks for your quick reply. My page size is 8.5x11. Page Units = Inches. Orientation in Portrait. I originally had the margins set at .5 for all, but I also tried changing them all to 0 with no change in the resulting number of pages.
In designing my report I used the Report Ruler to ensure that my data is only setup between 1 inch on the left and 7inch on the right. I used a Rectangle control to contain the different sections of my form so I can insure that each rectangle is only 6 inches long, starting at 1 inch on the right and all my field data is contained within a rectangle control. I am currently not specifying page breaks in the properties of any of my rectangle controls, although I did try to add a page break property on some rectangles which did not affect the additional page breaks when printing.
So my issue now is how can I determine what is specifically causing a page break.
