Starting in 2019, the Reporting control is no longer included in Essential Studio. If you're experiencing issues with the Syncfusion Reporting Platform, Report Viewer, Report Designer, or Report Writer, we recommend migrating to Bold Reports, our dedicated reporting platform.

Bold Reports offers a comprehensive suite of tools and features for all your reporting needs, and we will help you make a smooth transition from the discontinued control. Our support team at https://support.boldreports.com/ is here to assist you with any questions or difficulties you may encounter during the migration process.

We thank you for choosing Syncfusion and appreciate your understanding.

Paging and Sorting Issues after upgrading from to

We upgraded our SyncFusion version from to After upgrade we have noticed two issues:

1) Earlier ( by default the entire data was seen on the Report in one page only. Now in the new version (, we have got Paging by default. How do we change it back so that the data is visible on one page.

Please note that we have some reports (rdl files) where we used to show different sets of data in different pages in earlier version, this was done by creating groups.
Now with the newer versions these different groups data also became part of the pages.

For example, 
One report has three sets of data with 150 records in each set. Earlier, in the report we used to see 3 pages, each page correspond to one set of data (150 records)
But now we see 30 pages, first 10 pages for first set of data, second 10 pages for next set of data and so on. For the end user, it is not possible to find out that the second set of data starts from 11th page.

2) Earlier ( by default the entire data was displayed as Sorted. Now in the new version ( the data is not displaying sorted. How to fix this.

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support, 

We have checked the mentioned paging (KeepTogether property) and sorting issue in our latest Essential studio build version ( and its working properly at our end. In ReportViewer, we have provided the keepTogether property support for tablix reportitem as per RDL standard in our latest Essential studio build version ( and we have restriction for multiple group sorting in latest source.  So, can you please share your issue reproducible RDL file to validate the mentioned problem at our end.
