Reporting Services Report Viewer versus Report Server Problem

P: n/a
Hi I have several reports that I have imported from Access into SQL
Reporting Services 2005. They are multi-level grouping reports and SQL
Server Reporting Services generates rectangles and lists within lists to
make them work. I then go in and set the visibility conditionally on the
various rectangles to hide them where there is no data in a group.

The problem is that the reports work fine when they are on a report server
in particular all the white space for hidden rectangles etc. shrinks up and
leaves no gaps.

However when I import them into my Visual Studio 2005 project and change
their extension to rdlc to make them work with the Report Viewer the white
space for hidden controls does not shrink up and leaves up to 3cm vertical
gaps between rows so the reports are unusable.

The internal controls in the rectangles are quire close together and is this
anything to do with controls that overlap in the Report Viewer but not on
the Report Server?

Oh Gurus, are the engines the same or does it have anything to do with the
Interactive setting for example?

Any help would be most gratefully appreciated !
