SYMPTOMS

When you render a report to a Portable Document Format (PDF) file in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services, the page breaks are incorrect. This problem occurs when the following conditions are true:
  • In the report, you have a table with the Hidden property set to True. To set the Hidden property, right-click the table, and then click Table Details.
  • The table is configured with one group in the group list. To locate the group list, open the Table Properties dialog box, and then click the Groups tab.
  • On the General tab in the Grouping and Sorting Properties dialog box, the following check boxes are selected:
    • Page break at start
    • Include group header
    • Include group footer
    • Repeat group header
Note When the report is rendered to PDF format, there are no page breaks and the groups are located on the same page.
