Follow the steps below to create a break in Cognos 8 BI. Note that these are not the same steps used for IBM Cognos ReportNet. Steps: Create a list report in Report Studio that has 3 columns in it. For example, Product Line, Product Type and Product Name. Group the report on Product Line. Click the Page Explorer and select Report Pages. From the Insertable Objects window, drag a Page Set object, and place it above Page 1 in the Report Pages frame. Click Page Set1 on the Report Pages Frame, and then select Query1 from the query section under Page Set Properties frame. Click the Ellipsis button beside the Grouping and Sorting property. Drag and drop Product line from the Data Items side to the Groups folder and click OK. Back in Page Explorer, Report Page view, click and drag Page1 and drop it on Details Pages under Page Set1.
Run the report and you will see that the report will now page break on Product line.
