Workaround for mixed orientation on a report?

Workaround for mixed orientation on a report?

Workaround for mixed orientation on a report?


I have a form that i'm trying to recreate in SSRS 2008 for our users, the form is 11 pages, with 5 pages in the middle of the report being landscape, the rest are portrait - due to a set of tables in the landscape pages.

I've searched and found that SSRS doesn't support mixed orientation as the page sizes are set at runtime, but wonder if anyone has ever had to figure a workaround for this? I wondered about having the landscape pages appear as a subreport in the main portrait report, but thise doesnt seem to work, unless its my page breaks that need tweaking? Currently i have the landscape pages in a seperate linked report, but the preview fails.

Any help is appreciated!
