Page breaks are funny in reports.
[Quoted] The most common mechanism is to set the maximum records on a repeating frame to 1.
[Quoted] That will force a page break after each instance of a group.

Page break after only forces a break between the object and the ones anchored to it. If nothing is anchored to the object, page break after has no effect.
