How can I page break a Report? I have a nested report with two reports
in the summary band. One is a period to date summary and the other is a
year to date summary.

Is there a way to have each of these begin on a new page?

The only way (unfortunately) is when you define the report as a composite
report. Reports within a composite can start on a new page. It sounds
like your report in reality is a composite and not a nested report. You
cannot convert a nested to a composite, but you can build a new compiste
using your existing reports.
