How have your got the report canvas configured/laid out which is causing the vessel name to be below and not in-line?

Thanks for your prompt answer.

Vessel Name is kept in detailed section and all the other fields in group header section.

Ahh- i see. As mentioned, i'm new to SSRS but i expect there is some form of "first record of group" expression. Try looking at the definition of: RowNumber()


You can then place the vessel field in both the group header and the detail section. The conditionaly hide the detail section where RowNumber(groupname)=1

Hope that helps!

First is the function which should take first item from a group of items. Subreports are also quite useful where you want to embed certain elements based on the group data (used as subreport parameters).

Dear Experts,

Thanks for replies. I found the solution.  

I took one List object from reporting services toolbox.  

Right Click on list -> Properties -> General Tab -> Edit Details Group -> In expression select field to group on.

In my case it is CPIC Name

Then add table in that list from toolbox

In details section of table, add field which is from transaction table (in my case it is vessel name)

Format the table properly and drag that list control to the header part of parent table.

That will do the trick.

Anyways thaks for your reply.
