i open a subreport for editing, and it gives me a tab at the top so i can toggle between the subreport, the preview and the design.

is there a way to then close that subreport so it no longer has a tab?  i am working with multiple subreports and at a certain point i have so many open that i have to scroll back and forth to get where i need to be... would be much easier to just close the subreports i no longer need to edit.

thanks

Yes (Atleast in CR 8)  There is a RED X above the design/preview area on the right side near the previous/next page arrows.

mlmcc is right. You still have it in CR10 too.

if i use the red X, it automatically initiates the report.  perhaps because the next tab under the subreport is the preview?  is there a way around that?

The red x only closes that tab.  You will then see the tab tht was last visible before you opened the subreport.  Generally this will be the main report.

You can select the tabs on the right to get the one you want directly without closing any tabs.

If you want your preview to be the last tab, then you'll have to open the subreport(double click in the design window) before running the report.
