To add to this post, I have now removed the page header and have started using a group header. The funny thing is the group header works much better but not perfect. It renders headings on every page in view mode but only prints on most pages to pdf. I do have several subreports and it appears to skip the group heading consistently at the only subreport that has two groups with two tables (one nested table). I hope some of this provides some benefit to others and of course would love to hear a more expert opinion for my remaining problem. As a test I will remove the 'problem' subreport to confirm and then remove the others and only use the questionable subreport to try to figure this out. There are no page breaks set by any groups/tables/etc., other than the parent report's primary group. Thanks again for your time.
