RDLC - Report Layout Issue

P: 88

I have a report that I am designing in Visual Web Developer, I have two Matrix tables on my report - in the same list - and I have positioned them in the design window so that they are right up against eachother vertically. I'm trying to give the illustion that they are actually one table by putting a border around the list that they are inside (My second matrix table - first row only has a bottom border).

However, It creates a space between the two matix tables, so I end up having the first row of the second matrix table looking like it is three times the heighth of all the other rows.

I have checked the properties of the matrix tables to see if there was some type of margin setting but there is not, and I am assuming that the padding referers to only inside the cells - but it is set to 0 anyhow.

Is anyone aware of anyway that I can get rid of this space between the two tables?

Is this happening during runtime? The height of rows and their font sizes do matter, too.

Yes, everything looks fine in the development window when I'm designing the report. I've set the row heights and the font sizes. The last row of the first matrix is showing the proper row height and so is the first row of the second matrix so it is not changing the acutal row heights - it is putting a space between the matrix tables - where in the design, they are pushed right up against one another.

I got it messed up... In the first post, you said that the 1st row of the 2nd table expands, now you're saying that it is ok.
Anyway, if you click a cell of the table you will find "CanGrow" in the properties pane. Set it to False. Do it for all cells of each table. To do this at once on each table, hold the shift key then select the cell at the topmost left corner of the table then select the cell at the bottom right corner of the table.
Just to make sure, calculate and set the location of the second table with respect to the first table. You can set the location of a table by selecting the whole table and in the properties pane, you'll see "Location".
