Add a Page Break (Report Builder and SSRS)

You can add a page break to rectangles, data regions, or groups within data regions to control the amount of information on each page. Adding page breaks can improve the performance of published reports because only the items on each page have to be processed as you view the report. When the whole report is a single page, all items must be processed before you can view the report.

Note Note

You can create and modify report definitions (.rdl) in Report Builder and in Report Designer in SQL Server Data Tools. Each authoring environment provides different ways to create, open, and save reports and related items. For more information, see Designing Reports in Report Designer and Report Builder (SSRS) on the Web at microsoft.com.
