Print repeated values
Specifies whether the report engine tracks changes between successive values of the report control's output and renders only when the value changes.

Render output for the control only if the value is different from the last time the control output was evaluated.
Specifies additional conditions for repeating report control values.
- In first whole band of a new page/column
Specifies that the control output should be rendered if the band that contains it is rendering for the first time on a new page or column, overriding the setting of Print repeated values. For more information, see.
- When this data group expression changes
Specifies that the control output should be rendered if a specific data group expression evaluates to a different value, overriding the setting of Print repeated values.

- When band content overflows to new page/column
Specifies that the report control output be rendered when the band that contains it overflows to a new page or column.
The following additional options make it possible for you to suppress blank lines and control output for report controls and data in report controls.
- Remove line if blank
Specifies that the report engine may contract the report band vertically if the evaluation of the report control results in no renderable content, and no other renderable controls occupy the empty space on either side of the control.
- Print only when expression is true
