  21. 21. Tablix - Table<br />Use a table to display detail data<br />Organize the data in row groups, or both. <br />The Table template contains three columns with a table header row and a details row for data. <br />
  22. 22. Tablix - Matrix<br />Use a matrix to display aggregated data summaries<br />Grouped in rows and columns, similar to a PivotTable or crosstab. <br />The number of rows and columns for groups is determined by the number of unique values for each row and column groups<br />
  23. 23. Tablix - List<br />Use a list to create a free-form layout. You are not limited to a grid layout, but can place fields freely inside the list. <br />You can use a list to design a form for displaying many dataset fields or as a container to display multiple data regions side by side for grouped data. <br />
