The Classic client layout of a report has one or more header sections and a body section. The body section of the report contains the report data in a table format. In the client report definition (RDLC) report layout of some reports, some header information for the table is in the header section of the report layout instead of the body section with the remaining rows of the table. You must verify that all table header information is in the body of the report layout with the remaining rows of the table or move the table header information if it is not.

Before you begin this procedure, you must create a layout suggestion for the report. For more information, see How to: Create a Layout Suggestion.

To verify page headers and table headers

  1. In the Classic client, on the Tools menu, click Object Designer.

  2. In Object Designer, click Report, select a report that you want to modify, and then click Design.

  3. On the View menu, click Layout.

  4. In Microsoft Visual Studio, in the Report.rdlc file, verify that the fields in the header sections of the layout are not specific to the columns of the table, which is in the body section of the layout.

    In the following illustration, some fields in the Page Header section are specific to the table and must be moved to the Body section.

  5. Right-click the fields that are specific to columns in the table that you will move to the body section of the layout, and then click Cut.

  6. Right-click the first row of the table in the body section, and then click Insert Rows Above.

  7. Right-click the first field in the new row, and then click Paste.

    In the following figure, the fields have been moved from the Page Header section to the table in the Body section.
