Details section of table in SSRS should be fixed based on Dataset.

hi

I have one query in SSRS.  i have a report which should be in pdf format.  in that i have a table which should have 5 details ( i mean lines).
Here I have question,  suppose if my dataset for the table is returing only 2 rows means, I need the report should be like first two rows should be with data and the remaining rows should be empty.

As of now this is not happening, because of this my report alignment is changing.

Ex:  
DataSet

Eno  ename
1       A
2       B

Output should be in Table ( SSRS)

EmployeeNo              EmployeeName
         1                                  A
         2                                  B
         -                                    -
         -                                    -
         -                                    -


Suppose if my dataset is returning :
0 roww    means, remaining 4 rows should be with "-"
1 row    means, remaining 4 rows should be with "-"
2 row    means, remaining 3 rows should be with "-"
3 row    means, remaining 2 rows should be with "-"
4 row    means, remaining 1 rows should be with "-"

If anyone knows the solution, please advise me.
Thanks in Advance.

Regards
Prakash

HI UJayaPrakashRao
first, as I believe, the database always should prepare the data before it pass them to report.
so I think you should at the database stored procedure, prepare the data format and empty value format.

it means you always return 5 rows for stored procedure.

second, you put a IIF will fix the problem.

The following query will always return 5 rows:

select TOP 5 * from
(
select 1 as IsDBRecord
union all
select 0
union all
select 0
union all
select 0
union all
select 0
) a LEFT OUTER JOIN(select EmployeeNo, EmployeeName from employee) b
ON 1=1
ORDER BY IsDBRecord DESC
the highlighted portion is your actual query. For the actual rows from the table, value of IdDBRecord will be 1 other wise 0.
Now in your report, check the value of IsDBRecord column. If it is 1 then display the actual value of EmployeeNo, EmployeeName etc. and if it is 0 then display "-".
It should work fine.
