Microsoft Reporting Services - trying to design 3-up report

Posted on 2009-04-15
Last Modified: 2013-11-26
We are working on a custom non-tabular report using Microsoft Reporting Services available thro' Visual Studio. This is a local report and not one stored on a server. We wanted to display 3 records each page i.e.,a 3-up report and not sure how to do it. We got it designed to the point that the report is taking 1/3rd of the page size and we need to find the way tp repeat 2 more occurences (records) on the page. We tried to look into the report level properties to see if there is any page break related settings. But couldn't find any... Can any one point us in the right direction to do this? Thanks.

    The LearnedOne it sounds like they are trying to print some sort of Form or something.

    I'd use a list report item, size it accordingly to be 1/3 of the page and do all your layout through that.

    You need to use an report item that will repeat for each record in the dataset, (Table, Matrix, List)
    In this case a list will probably do the job because it gives you a box to layout your single record it.
