I have an urgent requrement to print a invoice like report with a fixed height.  Since there is no way to place a dynamic header/footer information, I designed the entire report in the detail section of the report.  This works fine except the report height changes according to the number of rows in the report.  Is there any way I can fix the height of the table/list in this report?  Also please tell me if there is any way I can solve the dynamic header/footer issue as well.
Thanks for your help in advance.

jkochel,

If you use Parameters you can put the parameter values in the header/footer, don't know if that will help?

As for the calculated height, this is a bit of a kludge but you could calculate out how many table records you can fit on a page.  I'd create multiple table footers and hide them progamatically based on the rowcount.

This won't help in my situation, because all the header/footer information is from the dataset only and its dynamic to each group in the dataset.

I will try this little differently and let you know if that works.

We ended up abandoning SSRS in favor of the DevExpress reporting tool.  RDL just isn't powerful enough yet.
