| Looking for a method to include a sizeable letterhead graphic on the first page of a report with standard header line and page number on subsequent pages.
The method employed at the moment is to
(i) set the page header height large enough to accommodate the graphic
(ii) include standard line and page number text box also in the page header area
(iii) use the value of the Globals!PageNumber parameter to toggle visibility of the graphic to Hidden on all pages except page 1 and the line and textbox to Visible on all pages except page 1
Method works OK except that the page header has to be set up with enough vertical space to show the graphic. This leaves a large gap at the top of subsequent pages.
Have tried splitting the graphic so that it is displayed half in the page header and half in the report body but this creates issues when the report is rendered as PDF (two halves do not line up and there is a gap).
Any solution that allows display of the graphic on the top of the first page without having to have blocks of empty space on the following pages would be greatly appreciated.
