Subreports and TTX files

Posted on 2004-10-25
Last Modified: 2008-01-16
I have an ASP application that uses the CRViewer to display a report.
The report uses three subreports.
The main report and sub reports are all connected to TTX files (one for each report/subreport).
At run time I call a stored procedure (from the asp page) for each of the reports/subreports:

Main Report

spGetSubreport1Data 'MainReportID'
spGetSubreport2Data 'MainReportID'
spGetSubreport3Data 'MainReportID'

When I run the report the main report displays one page per record from 'spGetMainReportData', but the subreports display the same info on every page (info from the first record of the main report).

If I don't filter the sub report data with the stored procedures.
Is there any way that I can link the subreports to a value in the main report to filter the subreports so it displays the correct info on every page?
How do I do that?

Thanks for any help!

    Link subreport to main report

    Open the report
    Right click on the subreport
    Select a field in the main report
    Select the corresponding field in the subreport

    Note this will only work if you've placed your subreport inside the details or group section of your main report (if it's in the main report's header or footer section then the link will only pass the first or last record).

    Make sure the subreport field you select is the parameter that's being passed to your stored procedure.  Also you'll want to select the one that looks like {?ParameterName} not the one like {?PM - ParameterName}.
