I have a bug with a report with reportbuilder 6.2, this report has no problem with version 4.2.
The page header is conditionned and it's a page break in the first bloc after the page header.
In same cases the content of the first page or some page where the page header is not visible, the page content is not visible (only the page footer is visible).
This with the fist preview or direct print of the report; but in the preview with click on the buton fit page in a window or print from the preview the content is visible normaly.
The phenomen is not the same with different data , same page are visible or not depending of the number or order of page in report.
The page header is conditionned with page number function, with another condition (0), all page are visible normaly.
The problem is the same with condition on all the page header or only on a line of the page header.
I've attached sample wit a report and a script to create the table in database island with data.
The report is linked with the table testdata of database island.
On the first preview, the frist page is not visible, passing the from preview to design and the preview, then content is complet.
When you read your 4.2 file into 6.2 RB then there's a chance that 6.2 didn't do rebuild it correctly. There's no 'apt/text' version of an RB file like there is in TD, so the new RB might not have (re)built the report right and if the internal structure changed from 4.2 --> 6.2 this could be the problem..
Here's what I'd do: SAVE A BACKUP OF YOUR CURRENT FILE! And after that, delete the entire contents (not input items, formulas, etc.) of the report in RB and save it as a different name with only the inputs,formulas, etc.
Now start recreating the report itself, step by step or report group by group and see if, as you recreate it if that works. My guess is 6.2 didn't correctly 'upgrade' the old 4.2 file. As you recreate each step/group that you save that file under still another name. That way if you reach a point where the report no longer works you can go back to the last save where that file did work. That should help narrow down if or where there's a problem and more details about where the problem might be.

the report in the sample was made in reportbuilder 6.2 in intregality
Yes I see the problem indeed first page shows nothing until going from preview to design and preview again and this also using Report builder from TD 6.3 SP1.
Note that opening the cqt and print physically on a PDF printer would at least show the first page and the other so seems to be a print preview issue.
I will check 4.2 but believe it be working
Hence I will enter a defect for this issue
attached is the 4.2 qrp
attached is the 4.2 qrp
Here is the issue entered. Obviously switching form preview to design and back to preview making the page appear pretty much implies a defect, furthermore checking the CQT with TD 6.1 SP6 shows it working fine.
