Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a main report in the VS 2010 IDE
  2. Use legal size and portrait orientation
  3. Import an existing subreport
  4. The subreport will have the correct width of 8 1/2 ''
  5. Change the page size of the main report to landscape (width is now 14'')
  6. Resize the subreport to the full width of the main report page
