SSRS display groupings as separate tables

I have a manual report that I'm trying to automate in SSRS.

In this report, there is a table for each manager in our company. Each table is identical as far as column headers goes, just different data (record for each employee and their job numbers). I've written a query that pulls up all of the information I need for the report and groups by manager.

I was hoping there was a way to do grouping in SSRS where each group was displayed as a separate table with it's own headers. I have one data set with all of the data for each manager in it. The number of managers can/will change over time, so I don't want to get into writing a separate query for each manager.

I know I how to group normally in SSRS within one table and I will end up doing that and making the sections collapsible if there's not a way to dynamically create tables off of groups like I'm asking. I'm just trying to make the report as close as possible to the original for the sake of the people that are used to the report as it is in it's current manual state.

As clarification of what I'm looking for, I want:

Manager1
col1, col2, col3
subtotals

Manager2
col1, col2, col3
subtotals

etc. Each with their own table borders/headers. I just wasn't sure if that is even possible in SSRS.

You cannot create tables dynamically in SSRS.

But you could add groups to managers without collapsing. If you add two header rows to the group - and remove the borders from the other one - I think the final result would look the way you want - each manager has its own table. Though they are actually share one common table. The first group header would act as the actual header.
