I have a report which has content specific to excel and content specific to pdf in the same report. When the report document is generated, it contains the data for both the outputs. Now if we get the page count on the report document, it will be a combination of both excel and pdf. Is there anyway to get the page count only for a specific output without using render task?

Thanks in advance.

Currently pagination is done at run time so I do not know of a work
around for this issue. I assume you are using visibility expressions to
control what content is rendered for an output? If so you may want to
look at using the de api in script to drop content and re-run the report
for a specific output.

Thanks for the quick reply

would it not hit performance. my queries are huge and take couple of minutes to run. If we run the same query again for each output, that would take a hit on performance. Is there anyway we can set the dataset results from one report to another one?

Thanks

I do not know of any easy way around this. I know there is a bug
reported on visibility expressions currently but I do know of a work
around. If you re-run the report it will hit the queries again.
