Custom code not working in page header upon PDF export

Due to the lack of data binding support in page headers on SQL Server Reports I found this code online that allows you to grab info from fields in the details section of the report and display them in the header.  The code is as follows:

Function GetItemValue(ByVal Items As ReportItems, ByVal item As String) As String
    return Items(item).Value
End Function

This works great when viewing in HTML but when I export this report to any format the code gets ignored and the fields in my page header are blank.  Is there any way around this?

Yes if you try to add a field from a data set or custom code to the page header, SSRS rejects the action or just doesn't show for the later.

Workaround: Place the field value in an item in the body of the report & then you can hide it with the visibility property but you are only placing it there for reference, then refer to that report item in the header (for example, =ReportItem!txtFie ldValue.Value).


hope it helps ...
