Repeating Matrix Column Headers in Reporting Services

Repeating Matrix Column Headers in Reporting Services

Today my afternoon was spent going through a set of standard reports used by some of the customers that I work with, checking layout, formatting etc.

I’d noticed that when a matrix spans over multiple pages, the column headers are not repeated. Foolishly I thought this will be a simple fix, surely just right clicking the group on the group selection at the bottom of report builder, then selecting repeat header…

However, sometimes this isn’t the case, turns out you need to dig a little deeper than that!

Try this…

Select the matrix in question, click the down arrow near row groups and column groups at the bottom, and select ‘Advanced Mode’.

Then select the static row groups that correspond to your column headers, go to it’s properties, and set the ‘RepeatOnNewPage’ property to true.

Works for me, hope it does for you!
