Nav 2013 Report Table Causing Page Break

    I'm trying to modify a custom Bill of Materials report to include images and barcodes. Each BOM line is displayed in a table along with its image. The problem I have is because the table spreads across two pages, it takes the entire table to the next page leaving just the header behind. That part is weird too, because it actually only leaves part of the header. I've tried searching through all the fields, playing with Keep Together (the only logical setting I could see), but I can't determine what was causing this.

    Here's how the report looks. Let me know what you want to see from the layout? I don't know where to even start to show you the settings there.

    Hi Joshua,

    Try to check on the width of your sections.

    Thanks @Hasse Nielsen The width was my first thought as I've had that problem before, but I can't see anything wrong with this width. Maybe you can see something I'm missing...

    Based on what I see, the page width is 8.5", margins left: .25" and Right 0.25" for a total of .5". So I should have exactly 8" width to work with. My table comes into about 7.73". As far as I can see everything fits within 8" and if the table doesn't push the report to 2 pages, it prints correctly. It really looks like it's a problem with the table trying to keep everything on the same page.

    Looks like the margins should be fine, and rereading your description it does sound like it's a Keep Together issue. Try to check the value on the row group that holds the tablix.
