SSRS 2008R2:

Here's the scenario. I have an SSRS report which is generating letters. Each data row contains the information pertinent to a letter. In the database the letters are in a specific order, by say a field called LetterOrder with the values 1,2,3,4,5..

The letter tablix order in the report is also in LetterOrder so the report should generate the letters in LetterOrder....but it doesn't.

So the data is stored in order, the data is read in order, the tablix sort order is set but the letters generate in a random order.

It's almost like it's not pre-fetching the entire dataset and sorting it before rendering the letters.

Anyone else notice something similar to this? Any ideas? Am I missing something basic?

Regards,
Erin

I'm thinking that this isn't a very common problem and that's why no one replied. Thanks for posting your answer. It'll help other if they ever come across this problem and find this post.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair
