Hi Vani,

Yes, this is possible. You could use master page in RPE template in Studio and assign it to a container.
You have to create 2 master pages, one could be for portrait and the other for landscape.

Thanks,
Kumar

Where do the images and tables come from? How do you determine if they can/cannot be accommodated in portrait page?
Once you figure that out, you can achieve this using dynamic master page. Use a variable (pageOrientation) and set it as "Page orientation" property of the master page.

You can refer https://rpeactual.com/2014/02/21/new-in-1-2-1-dynamic-master-pages/ where you find an example template.

The Tables and images which are bigger are already in the formal modules, which are imported from word document from the ADA user into the DNG Module.

After generating the report for this DNG module using document style report/RPE,  some images/tables were displayed half/cut which were bigger in the generated document.

It is difficult to determine if they can/cannot be accommodated in portrait page. Let me know how to  determine if they can/cannot be accommodated in portrait page while generating report
