In my reports, I have a field (businessID), that I want to group by. Per each businessid group, I want to 1) put the value of the businessid in the header and then 2) break to the next page per
each instance of a new group.

Is this possible? If so, how would i got about doing so.

Hi vbnetcoder,

Try this:
1) Group by businessID in your Table/Tablix , make it Hidden (you can alos make it small as possible if it messes up your format) and select "page break per each instance..."
2) Reference the textbox that you just hid in the report header with another textbox with an expression ReportItems!<name of first textbox>.value

I get an error:

Reportitem is a type and cannot be used as and expression.

This is what i put in the expression for the textbox that is in the header:

=ReportItem!TextboxCompanyHidden.value

What is the name of the textbox in the group? "TextboxCompanyHidden"?  For our example let's use "Textbox1" as the name of the grouping textbox and "Textbox2" as the textbox in the report header:

In the Report Header, the textbox2 expression should be:   =ReportItems!Textbox1.Value".

(sorry I misspelled before.  ReportItem should be ReportItems, with an "s")

and make sure to check the group properties for Page Break to "Between each instance of a group"

I've tested this and it works for me.
