Title Page for Multi-Column Report

I am trying to create a report similar to a year book.   The detail section contains a 2 column table which on it's own properly displays the data in two columns and expects parameters and queries based on those parameters.   What I need is a title page.   I was originally trying a page header, but the header ends up reserving space even if I write a visibility expression to only display on the first page.    I have also tried a sub-report approach.    I have created a title page, and included the detail portion as a sub-report.  All of the parameters are included and working with one problem, the detail report reverts to a single column.    I have tinkered with the margins and sub-report width etc. with no success.

Any ideas would prevent me from pulling any additional hair from my head.

Thanks.

What I usually do to force page breaks is put each page in a Rectangle control.  One of the properties of the Rectangle is "Page break after" (or similar) and what this does is put a page break after the Rectangle.
So in your case your header page would consist of a Rectangle that contains the items that you want to appear on the first page.  Then activate the Page Break option.
Your table, which is located below the rectangle, then starts from the second page.

I have since decided to create two separate reports.  One for title page and one for the multi-column report.
