SSRS Report Builder 3.0 - How to avoid page breaks in Report Viewer


The Report Viewer displays the tabular reports with pagination. This is inconvenient to users as they have to click on the page navigator to browse through the report. Is there a way to have the report viewer display all the rows in one view, so that users will find it convenient to browse through the report by just scrolloing up and down?

Use the Interactive Size property of the report to overcome this. This property will not however show up in the Report Properties dialog. This will be available on the Properties Pane, which shows up ususally on the right side of the screen. If it is not showing up, check the options under the View menu. To have all records in single view without pagination, set the Height under Interactive Size to 0 cm.

This setting is effective for display in the report viewer only. Page breaks in print and other export formats will be based on the Page Size rather than the Interactive Size property.
