I have a report with 3 matricies side by side.  When I view the report everything looks fine.  But as soon as I print the report or make a pdf of it the second and third matrix are overlapping.  How do I avoid this?

Try decreasing the width of the matrices.  It's possible that the sum of the width of the three matrices (+ whitespace in between the matrices) exceeds the report's page width, resulting in your unexpected output.

Some output views of SSRS do allow overlaps, some don't. But overlapping would indicate either more columns than you were anticipating or that there is an actual overlap, possible too small to notice in the designer view.

First check the height and width properties of each of the Matrices and make sure they are aligned exactly.

Placing a line control between each matrix or encapsulating them individually in Rectangle controls may often help constrain them properly.

Cheers
Chris
