SSRS 2008 Format Question

I am working on this SSRS 2008 R2 report and was having a hard time getting everything to line up. I just happened to click on the Group Properties and when the outline of the group was drawn I was suprised to see it only outlined part of the group. In the attached screen shot all lines are part of the group not just the few it has outlined. How do I get the other cells to be part of the group? Once I get them all to be part of the group I bet everything will line up. Please see attached screenshot.

By the way, this is what I mean about the data fields not lining up. When the report is displayed on the screen some fields in the tablix are missing and others are not lined up. If I print the report everything falls back into place and is lined up.

It's part of the group but it's in the details section, each group has group header, footer and DETAILS section.

This link talks about the drilldwon feature but I will follow it to see if it helps me understand groups.
So as far this report goes, should I delete the tablix and start over again? Some how I have fields outside the group and there appeears to be no way to get them back into the group.

which fields exactly? I'm looking at the report now

You don't have to create text boxes and hide them and reference them in the header anymore like 2005

If you are using matrix it will look like that.
I would switch to tablix table to see a more uniform flow of the data.

I had dropped a tablix onto the form. If somehow it got switcherd to matrix I am not sure how that would have happened.

Can I just drop data fields on the header now? If I can do that, I will just drop those hidden rows.

So you have upgraded to 2008?
If so you are right MS fixed the header/footer problem in 2008.
