A SSRS 2008 report shows duplicate first row for each group of a subreport when you export the report to CSV format

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 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 fix release.
SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services (SSRS 2008):
  • You have a report and a subreport.
  • Both reports have a table, a matrix, or a List control to show data.
  • The report uses a Subreport control with parameters to display the subreport.
  • You export the report to a CSV file.
In this scenario, you notice that there is a duplicated row for the first row in each group of the subreport.
