One Report With Two Page Orientations

I have a report that contains a subreport.  The main report's print orientation is portrait.  The subreport's orientation is landscape.

Right now, when the report prints (or previews) It's in portrait  The main report prints fine, but the subreport is only printing the left half.

It there any way to tell Crystal Reports to change orientation?

The subreport takes the oreintation of the main report. You need to change the main report page setting to landscape. There could be 3rd party tools in the link below to achieve this:

I understand that the subreport takes on the orientation of the main report.  I could change the orientation of the main report, but then there is far too much white space on the right side of the main report.

I was hoping there was some way of changing the orientation from portrait to landscape when the subreport begins to print.

Upgrade to Crystal 2008 when it comes out.  It was just announced and one of the features is the ability to change page orientation within a report.

Unfortunately upgrading is not an option.

Since upgrading is not an option for you, consider a 3rd-party tool as a solution (for a list of such tools, see http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html).

My Visual CUT software allows you to automate the process of exporting several reprots to pdf, merging the results to a single pdf, and printing that result.  This allows you to overcome the page orientation limitation.
