RDLC report print layout is different to design.
Posted on 2011-03-16
Hi, I'm trying to convert a complex Word document into a RDLC report.
This a going to be an automation of what was previously a paper form. If you think of the sort of form you had to fill out the last time you tried to borrow money from a bank, you'll have the right idea.
It's essential that my final output - printed or PDF - matches my design.
I'm finding that the layout changes when the report is generated.
Text boxes that align in design mode, no longer do,
Text boxes that were word-wrapped to multiple lines have printed on one line.
Text boxes that were neatly side-by-side, now over-lap.
Any suggestioins gratefully received.
I need a way of generating a report from a C# (VS2010) where my output will match my design (preferably without paying for an expensive licence)
