Before you print or preview a client report definition (RDLC) report layout, the RoleTailored client checks the page width and page height to verify that the paper size is supported by the printer. After you create an RDLC report layout, to ensure that you can print and preview the report, you must verify that the page width and page height properties are valid.

The following table shows valid paper size dimensions.

Paper size Width Height


21 cm

29.7 cm


8.5 inches

11 inches

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

To verify the page height and page width properties

  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.
