In SQL Server Reporting Services 2008, I am creating a report to pull in a sub-report.  I am bringing this sub-report into a table as a detail row in my main report.  The sub-report is also being used as an independent report and has page breaks defined at a table group level.  When I view this report as a sub-report, the page breaks are being ignored.  Is there any way to make the page breaks work when the report is viewed as a sub-report?

Explicit page breaks are ignored within sub reports.

This is because page breaks are not supported on items that can be hidden, as it can radically alter the layout of a page.

Have a look at the following websites

You could try putting a rectangle around the subreport and setting that to cause page break.

See the following website for an example of how to use a rectangle to handle the pagination of the subreport.
