Can you do a page break dependent on whether a group is expanded in SSRS 2008?

I have a report that has a page break at group level (person). I've just received a request to amend the report so that it has another group level (department) now so that we can get overall stats per department.

I want the report to initially just display the department and person without person detail so I've set visibility on the detail row group to be hidden with a toggle on the department name (as they will either want it printed in expanded form with detail row group details or summarised by person by department).

The problem I'm getting is that the page break is still being applied at person level so I get a page with one person line on it irrespective of which department they're in. I only want the page break by person if the report has the detail row group expanded. Is there a way of only applying page breaks on whether a group's detail has been expanded please?

It's not possible to have conditional page breaks.

However, you could add two tables on your report.
- Add a new parameter for the user to choose - what is the detail level (department/employee)
-> You show or hide the two tables depending on the parameter value
- The other one has page breaks on employee, other one on department level
- You could also add a link to the department - which would show the employee-level report/table

Having two tables with same cols and rows increases of course maintenance work - but that's one approach.
