Overlapping row banding

Question asked by Szymon Klepacz on Oct 17, 2018

In a few of my reports, neighbouring rows are overlapping and row bands have the same colour. You can see this on the attached image. First row and second have a strange spacing between them (except one column) and rows 2 and 3 are fine. This is very problematic since colour supposed to indicate a new row.

HINT: This problem appears when option Avoid-page-breaking has value False




All of the reports were created using Report Designer Wizard.


The row banding settings are as follow:

  • Visible color : Automatic
  • Invisible color : Automatic
  • Element: detailrows
  • State on new group: Visible
  • State on new page: Visible


Do you have any idea how to deal with it?
