Email Alerts are not received...

In one of application, Email alerts are sent using SQL sp_send_dbmail stored procedure. Email alerts were working properly, but suddenly noticed email alerts are not received.

To troubleshoot the issue, first I checked the msdb.dbo.sysmail_event_log table using the below query.

SELECT log_id, event_type, log_date, description, process_id, mailitem_id, account_id, last_mod_date, last_mod_user
log_date DESC

If there is any error, you should see records with the event_type value as error.

How to avoid data is moving to the next page in SSRS even though the space is available in the previous page...

Recently I faced an issue that in a SSRS table, data in a particular row is moving to the next page if the content with in that row is not fit enough to the available space.

We can overcome this issue by setting the KeepTogether property of the Row Cell to False.
Select the particular Row Cell and go to the Properties window. In that you can find the KeepTogether property. Default the value is set to True, change it to False.
That is it. Just run the report and you will see the content is moved to that free space and additional content is  moved to the next page.
