FIX: Error when you use a hard page-break renderer to export a report in SSRS 2008 R2 if the HideDuplicates property is not set to None

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 R2 fix release.
SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario:
  • You install Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services (SSRS 2008 R2) on a computer.
  • You create a report that contains a Tablix control. This Tablix control has a text box.
  • You set the HideDuplicates property for the text box to a value that is in scope of the report. Therefore, the value of this property is not set to None.
  • You try to render or export the report by using any hard-page-break renderer. For example, you try to use one of the following renderers:
    • PDF
    • TIFF
    • Print/Print Layout/Print Preview
In this scenario, the report is not exported. Additionally, you receive the following error message in a report design tool:
An error occurred during local report processing.
(processing): ScalableList: Index <id> outside the allowed range [0::<id-1>]
Additionally, you receive the following error message in Report Manager or the Report Server web service:
An internal error occurred on the report server. See the error log for more details. (rsInternalError)
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.
Exception Details: Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportServerException: An internal error occurred on the report server. See the error log for more details. (rsInternalError)
Source Error:
An unhandled exception was generated during the execution of the current web request. Information regarding the origin and location of the exception can be identified using the exception stack trace below.
CAUSE
This issue occurs because hard-page-break renderers throw an exception when the HideDuplicates property is not set to None for a text box in a Tablix control.
