CL400      John      2      Y      Mary
CL400      John      3      N      Mary
CL201      Fred      1      N      Benjamin
CL201      Fred      2      Y      Benjamin
CL201      Fred      3      N      Benjamin
CL400      Bob      1      N      Mary
CL400      Bob      2      Y      Mary
CL400      Bob      3      N      Mary
CL201      Lindsey      1      Y      Benjamin

I tried creating a SSRS report using a matrix table. For row group Parent group is Teacher, child group classroom, child group question number.

I setup column group to student name. In detail I put Correct field value.

When the report is run all students are shown across top instead of just the ones that are in the classroom. There are blank values in the detail for those students that are not in the class.

Mary's class has 3 students so should show 3 students/columns at top on her sheet.
Benjamin's class has 4 students so should only show 4 students/columns at top
Does a SSRS matrix report not do what I want? If so what could I be doing wrong?

Output needed:
Sheet 1                        
                        
Teacher:      Mary                  
Classroom:      CL400                  
Questions      John      Bob      Jennie      
1      Y      N      Y      
2      Y      Y      Y      
3      N      N      Y      
                        
                        
                        
Sheet 2                        
                        
Teacher:      Benjamin                  
Classroom:      CL201                  
Question      Fred      Lindsey      Mark      Debbie
1      N      Y      N      Y
2      Y      Y      N      N
3      N      Y      Y      N

The single matrix report cannot do what you want directly.

Instead, you need to have the teacher as a parameter and generate each report separately.

Alternatively, you could have each teacher's report as a subchart, feeding each teacher's name as a parameter to the subchart.

Got it I thought that might be the case.  Subreport could work I'll look at that.
Thanks
