This may help you:

cr.Section2.ReportObjects["ORderNo1"].Height = 600;     // Change Height
cr.Section2.ReportObjects["ORderNo1"].Left = 600;          // Change Location

Open in new window


cr = report bound to ReportViewer
Section2 = The section holds the field
ORderNo1 = Name of field exists in section 2

Thank you for the response. But may I know where this code should be placed. I have placed the report viewer inside a form. is this code to be placed in the form's code?

this code should be placed where you bind report with ReportViewer control. Before binding set location and other parameters and bind it to the control.
