Hi Experts,

How experts, I need to create a pagebreak based on a pagebreak parameter in SSRS 2008R2.

If the the parameter returns a  1 =  pagebreak and if it returns 0 no page break. Would would be the best way to accomplish this task and what would be a sample of the code?


Thank You

You can use a Rectangle for that.  Put it where you'd like to have the pagebreak.  Make sure to activate the "Add a page break before" property of the rectangle.

Then use the Hidden property to either have a page break or not (when the rectangle is hidden, there's no page break).  The Hidden property allows expressions so you'll be able to use your parameter.

Something like this:

=Not Parameters!PageBreak.Value

The expression above assumes that your parameter is called PageBreak and that its type is boolean.

In case the parameter is of type integer, then you'll need an expression as follows:

=IIF(Parameters!PageBreak.Value = 1, false, true)
0
