Hi,

I am trying to produce quite a complex Access report that will require 3 levels of subreports.

When placing a subreport within a subreport, I get a Access crash!

Does anyone know why this is occurring?

This is quite urgent

Im using access 2003 (11.5614.5606)

Not sure of the level of service pack, does not mention anything

Do I need to update, if so, do I just use the Windows update (I have vista)

I got around this by creating the subreport within the subreport separately.

Then I created the subreport in the main report and just referenced the created report. Worked a treat!
