How To Display Associated Table Rows On Different Pages In The Report???

Greetings experts!
I hope someone could help me with this. what I am trying to do is create a report using the SQL SERVER 2005 Report designer. I have a stored procedure which retrives a number of records from a table, these records have two main fields, "Outer_NO" and "Inner_NO". what I would like to do, is display the records with similar "Outer_NO" on seperate pages on  the report, it is like grouping the records with the same value for the "Outer_NO" on a seperate page. I have tried few things to accomplish this but without success. So Far I have tried to create a table in the report and then setup the "Group" property of the table row, but what this has done is like carrying out a "Distinct Select" based on the "Outer_NO", so I ended up with only one record on every page instead of the several records on each page. I can't seem to figure out how to accomplish this. I would really appreciate any help or tips .
Thanks in advance.

best wishes,
~Salman~

Hmmm...I can't quite see what you are talking about.

Is it something like this?

Outer_NO
     Inner_NO
        record
        record
        record
<page break>
Outer_NO
     Inner_NO
        record
        record
        record

Greetings TheLearnedOne!
thanks for the reply.

Yes, exactly, that is what I meant. just the way you described it. so in other words, I need to display the records with identical "Inner_NO" in one page, and then break, and the next page comes the next set of records.

It might be good to know how you would do it in Access--it might be similar.
