I have a subreport that needs to be printed on the first page (but below a header that is on every page).  The subreport, at times, has MANY rows in it and spans more than one page.  I get this error when this happens.

Any suggestions?

Current Setup
Report Header (Blank)
Page Header a (Displayed on every page)
Page Header b (Subreport, with Supress expression set to: If PageNumber > 1 Then True)
Group Header #1
Details
Group Footer #1
Page Footer
Report Footer

What happens when you REMOVE the Supress expression set to:  If PageNumber > 1 Then True ?

How about trying to restrict the size of the subreport instead of trying to suppress it once it is on page 2.

Can you count the number of records that will fit on the page and then set your subreport to return no more than that number of records?

Let me try again...what section is your SUBREPORT displaying within itself?

In other words, I know you are placing the Sub in the header of your main,...but within the Sub itself...what sections are being displayed for the sub../.?

CRXIuser2005: 1) same error occurs when you remove the Supress Expression.  2) the subreport is in the Page Header c section.

ast2550: Only showing some of the rows is not an option.  The user needs to see all of them.

Yes, CRXIuser2005 is right.  duh.

I thought you could suppress it because of:
Page Header b (Subreport, with Supress expression set to: If PageNumber > 1 Then True)

I need this subreport to print AFTER another item that is printed in the page header of every page.  So, unfortunately, putting it in the Page Header would not do that, correct?

I need:

--------------------------------------------------------
User Name / Page N of N (Top of every page)

Subreport (but only on page 1)

Group Header
Detail
Group Footer
--------------------------------------------------------

In that order.

1) Insert another Report Header section
2) Duplicate the page header details in it
3) Put your sub-report in the ReportHeaderB
4) Suppress your PageHeader on PageNumber = 1

I would suggest using the Page FOOTER for the Page numbers...might be a minor concession to live with...

ast2550:  It took me a couple seconds to figure out exactly what you were saying, but that worked!  There is another small problem (any text before the subreport get's separated (left at the top of the page while the subreport itself prints on the 2nd page).  But at least it prints (looks bad, but prints w/ the all the data).  Thanks!

CRXIuser2005, you may have meant the same thing, but ast2550 spelled it out for me first (sometimes I'm a little slow to catch on).
