Add Page Numbers

  2. In the Microsoft Visual Studio Designer, switch to the Field List, select the ProductName and UnitPrice fields, and drag-and-drop them onto the report's Detail band.

  2. Group the report by the CategoryName field.
  3. To display the GroupFooter band, right-click anywhere on the report's surface, and in the invoked menu, point to Insert Band and click GroupFooter.

    Note

    You can force the group header and/or the group footer to be repeated on each page, using the GroupBand.RepeatEveryPage property.

  4. Next, force each new group to start on a separate page. Otherwise, group page numbers will be calculated incorrectly.

    To do this, select the Group Footer, and set its Band.PageBreak to AfterBand.
