Hi all

I have 4 data sets and in each data set i have unique column called empid and i want to break the report to display the one record per page in BIRT VIEWER so it look like per employee report...
Report page has 4 tables and these 4 data sets binded to the tables
For more information the tables nested in one another

so anybody can explain me how to do it...?

I am not exactly sure what you need, but if you are grouping on employee
in a table you can insert a page break after ever group change. Do this
in the group editor.

Hi jason,

For more clarification i have 4 data sets and each dataset is binded to one of these 4 tables...

So my problem is am not able to break all the four tables to break row wise to appear in single page..

Means 4 tables must be repeated in each of the reporting page in birt viewer..

So it will be per employee page

I have unique column called EmpId, So is it possible to achieve my requirement?

Do you want the page to break for every different employee id? If so
use one outer table that groups employeeid and the four inner tables can
be in the detail or group header row of the outer table.

From the sounds of it, you'd just need to group the first table you have in your report by the employeeid or whatever and set the page break after for the group to "always excluding last". Then, place the other three (or however many you have) tables in the group footer of that first table and either use filtering or data set parameter binding (see the binding tab in the property editor for each nested table) to limit the results returned to each nested table. The only other thing you'd need to worry about is setting the layout to auto so that there is no fixed page sizing. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have questions.
