I have a report built in visual studio 2010, the main report is a summary of open orders and the line item detail associated, I created a small table and placed it above the main report tablix to show a budget and summed total cost and the over/under budget. So I have the main report tablix and a small 3 field tablix above. The problem is when run, the small budget table shows on its own page, so you see this little table and a wasted page, then the report on the following pages, ideally this just show up directly above the main report content.

the 2 big issues I have are
#1 the report previews and prints with the budget table on one page with the rest of the page blank
#2 when I setup on a subscription to export/email via excel, the budget table shows on 1 tab of the excel workbook and the rest of the report on tab 2

Just seems like I should be able to have one continuous report. Attached are snips of the design and preview

Have a look at the properties of the second table.  If KeepTogether is set to True, try setting it to False.  Also check if PageBreak > BreakLocation is set to None.

If that doesn't help, check the properties of the first table to see if any page breaks are activated on that one.  Can also be done by right-clicking in the upper-left corner of the tablix itself to open its properties.

Yes, you can include multiple datasets into a single report page.  I don't have SSRS in front of me right now, but if I remember correctly, you just need to drag your 2nd table onto the report page in the designer.    Say you've got two datasets, Open Orders and Budge Terms.  Collect the datasets separately, into two tables, but then  rewrite your queries to create single dataset -- and display the merged dataset.

You can also use subreports to do this.  First, creating a main report, and then creating a subreport to insert into your main report.  in SSRS, the subreport is simply one completely separate report nested inside another report.  Take a look at this 7 minute tutorial:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6S8Zzqthsbw

This is a good walk thru from MSFT:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms160348(v=sql.100).aspx






I know you can do some

I hit submit before I finished that.  The lookup functions can be used as well, but I think it's much easier with the two other methods I suggested.

Yep, had a page break set, and didn't have keep together set. Thanks so much!
