Report design: show row only on the first page

Share This Post

One of the things I bumped into recently was to show a portion of an order confirmation(a portion of the header)  only on the first page.

I tried a few things, the closest being to have the controls that would appear on the first page all in a rectangle. Then, control the rectangle via Hidden property and Globals!PageNumber property.

This worked. However, the real estate taken by the rectangle was still consumed, therefore not useful.

The solution was to move all controls on the first row of the tablix located in the body.

Then, after opening the Advanced Mode of the grouping:

  • for the row that you want to display only on first page set the following properties:
    • keeptogether = false
    • keepwithgroup = none
    • repeatonnewpage = true
  • for all the other rows:
    • keeptogether=true
    • keepwithgroup=after
    • repeatonnewpage=true

Hope it helps!
