Want footer on the last page only

I need to put a page of terms on the last page only of a report done for SSRS 2008.  From everything I've read there is no report footer.  I found an article that suggested creating a page footer and then doing an expression in the footer properties to print only on the last page.  Sounded like a good idea, but the footer properties don't allow me to do an expression.  Any other ideas?

I am not familiar with SSRS 2008, but here is what I would attempt with similar programs:

Maybe use some sort of formula for the text box(es) in the footer, such as (pseudocode):

=if([page number]=[number of pages],"my footer text",null)

On any of your pages that are before the last page, you would likely have white space where these text boxes return null.

If the report is event-driven, where you have "on print" or "on format" events, then you can have code like this:

If pagenumber < numberofpages then
pagefooter.visible=false
else
pagefooter.visible=true
end if

I've been trying something similar to what you have suggested and it isn't working.  I created a rectangle in the footer and then put all my text in that.  I then told it to only print the footer on the last page.  The footer itself is almost a half a page long so every page now has half the page blank.  The footer only prints on the last page - but it doesn't really produce the results I want. I also tried making the rectangle small and told it to grow - but it doesn't grow to expand the entire text so that doesn't work either!

I figured out a way to simulate this.  On the lines where I had my grand totals I added another line below that and then put my text in there.  It only prints on the last page and because it is long and marked as keep together it goes to the next page and prints the text.  Worked like a charm so I'll leave this question out there in case others are looking for the same answer.
