Hi there,

I am trying to do a mail merge with SSRS. I must be missing a trick somewhere. The page footer is coming out on each page no problem, but the table of data that pulls the info from our sql 2005 database repeats twice per page.

Any ideas anyone?

Cheers, Roger

Things to check:
  1. Run the exact same query direct in query analyser to check that data is in fact being duplicated
  2. Is there some group by condition in Report causing data to be repeated
  3. Does data appear duplicated when report run on SSRS website, I have had bizarre results when viewing report in BIDS report viewer (can cache data for previews)

Hi,

The stored procedure is fine, the only group is the address, with the detail as the text of letter.

How do you tell SSRS to print to A4, and start new page every group?
