SSRS 2012 rendering to PDF

As many others, I am facing issue of difference between SSRS report in viewer and its output when rendered to PDF:

We have Tablix with "Keep together when possible" checked, and it shows properly in SSRS viewer:

Header row 1
Detail 1
Detail 2
Detail 3

Page Break

Header row 2
Detail  A
Detail B


Rendered output looks differently as header row 1 is carried over to the next page also:

Header row 1
Detail 1
Detail 2
Detail 3
 
Page Break

Header row 1
Header row 2
Detail A
Detail B

Is there any way to prevent this behavour in rendered output ???

You should NOT select Repeat header rows on each page.

Steps:

Right-click the row, column, or corner handle of a tablix data region, and then click Tablix Properties.

In Row Headers, unselect Repeat header rows on each page.

Thanks Easwaran - but that is what we already have - Repeat header rows on each page is unselected, and does not show on report - it is PDF rendering only that is causing the issue.

If you have different headers per page then you need to place those headers in each group area.
It looks like you are using the regular header area which will place that header on each page.
