    Keep Groups Together in Data Regions
    In This Topic

    In Table and Tablix data regions of Page and RDL reports, you can choose to keep the contents of a group together on a single page.

    With the option selected or the property set to true, you can keep the content of a group (details row along with the group header and the group footer) together on the same page. For example, you can choose to print the grouped data - all on one page instead of printing across multiple pages. The group is attempted to be printed on a single page with no page breaks if possible. In case the group is too large to fit on the current page or the next page, the feature is ignored and the groups split across the report pages.
