Tips and Limitations

Smart Split Specifics

In a scenario where the label spans the entire page width within PageHeaderBand or PageFooterBand, the reporting engine treats the right side of the label as the border for content splitting. In this case, both the Smart and Exact settings will result in the same behavior.

To address this situation, move the header label to TopMarginBand or BottomMarginBand, and it will not be treated as part of the content to be separated based on the right margin. This approach allows the report engine to correctly handle content splitting based on the actual content within the DetailBand.
