Page Breaks in SSRS...

I am posting this link in response to one of the reader's (sumit's) comment about on how to assign a Page break after a specific number of rows. The requirement is interesting since normally page breaks are based on groups and these are usually set at the Group level. The following link talks about dynamic grouping in great detail. There are very interesting ways suggested to achive this result.
I have not run into this situation before, apparently from the above link, there other reporting tools which offer conditional pagebreaks....
Also this is taken form the MSDN forumns:
BOL 2008:
Page Breaks
In some reports, you may want to place a page break at the end of a specified number of rows instead of, or in addition to, on groups or report items. To do this, create a group in a data region (typically a group immediately outside the detail), add a page break to the group, and then add a group expression to group by a specified number of rows.
The following expression, when placed in the group expression, assigns a number to each set of 25 rows. When a page break is defined for the group, this expression results in a page break every 25 rows.
