I have worked on SSRS in SQL Server 2000. At that time Report designer had to have following section.
1. Report Header Section
2. Page Header Section
3. Grouping header if any -> If grouping on column are included, designer use to add one header & one footer section for group as well.
4. Body Section -> this section use to repeat for each data row.
5. Grouping footer if any
6. Page Footer Section
7. Report Footer Section
Recently I have taken the training on SSRS 2008. I have noticed that new designer don't have sections now. Now I suppose we have table, matrix and tablix. I am not able to understanding if
1. If I want something to appear on report header, why will I keep it?
2. If I want something to appear on report footer, why will I keep it?
3. If I want something to appear on group header & footer section (let's say user wants grouping on country)
If anyone familiar with SSRS 2000 & have time to type, please help me here.

For report header and footer: Reports do not have a special report header or report footer area. A report header consists of the report items that are placed at the top of the report body on the report design surface. They appear only once as the first content in the report. A report footer consists of report items that are placed at the bottom of the report body. They appear only once as the last content in the report.
For group header and footer: We can add a group header and footer when we adding group. And then we can display data on group header and group footer.
