Hi,
i have one report which is having one table and one image below table. i would like to take print out of this report and it shows only 75-80% of the page in print preview and print only 80% of the page (in terms of left to right side).

I thought the image might be too big to print so saved that images on separate file and tried to take print out of that image and it is complete. Table size is very small so no problem with size of table.

How can i print report with complete image and table? why it is not printing with all information? do i need to set anything in SSRS report body or report?

Thanks,
UHB

UHB is it trying to span across multiple pages?

It's been my experience that SSRS reports get setup with a default 1" page margin for top/bottom, left/right which usually causes print headaches.

Well, you could try adjusting the page margins that will give you more room.

I usually set my report margins to 0.25" any smaller and some printers have problems.
for an 8.5" width page this gives me 8" of usable space for reporting objects

To do this in BIDS click on Report > Report Properties > Layout

Ensure the page size is set correctly and that the margins are set.

You may want to double check that the width of the report is not greater than 8"
