Single dataset, multiple layouts, same report

Single dataset, multiple layouts, same report

I have a stored procedure that returns the Store, Product Category, Units Sold, & Sales Dollars, but each is reported in different charts.

	StoreID	ProductCategory	FYQuarter	Units Sold	Sales Dollars
	1198	Gloves		2013 - Q1	1		176
	1198	Hats		2012 - Q4	18		4410
	1198	Shoes		2013 - Q1	8		2460
	1198	Gloves		2013 - Q2	1		199
	1198	Gloves		2013 - Q4	1		142
	1198	Shoes		2012 - Q4	31		9717
	1198	Shoes		2013 - Q2	11		2988
	1198	Shoes		2013 - Q3	9		2249
	1198	Hats		2013 - Q3	7		2235

Almost everything is reported separately. Each ProductCategory gets its own chart for both for both Units and Amounts. So Hats, Gloves, Shoes for Units Sold makes 3 charts; Hats, Gloves, Shoes for Sales Dollars are another 3 charts.

The charts for Units Sold are in a tablix that should be one Product Category per page. (There is a page break between Categories.)

Up to this point, everything works very well.

Then the charts for Sales Dollars need to be displayed 4 per page (2 columns of 2 rows) and there are up to 8 categories, but it could be fewer. (I have the 4-per page charts are in a separate tablix from the 1-per page with a column group for Product Category.)

Two things I can't figure out:
1) This needs to be printable (landscape). How do I manage page-breaks? Should this be sub-reports?
2) Should all this be in the same tablix?

I still have costs to add in here (which may be a separate data set -- I'm not sure).
