Summarize multiple counts in a drill down report

I want my report to be a drill down report, based on the following (example) tables:

UserTable
UserID
UserName

TaksTable
UserID
Task
TaskDate

MemoTable
UserID
Memo
MemoDate


What I want my report to do is show the following:

Weeknumber                 UserID                  # of Tasks this week             # of Memo's this week

1                                      ABC                      25                                        8
2                                      ABC                      5                                          45
...


And I want to be able to drill down on the info, to show me the detail data, this is in a subreport (I don't see the problem there)

The problem is, that I don't know how to set this up. because I also need to filter on Users, dateranges etc, I can't make the whole query in SQL only and if I use Right Outer Join/SQL command this wouldn't work with the filters, so it seems I should treat this as different datasources.
Help is appreciated.

Based on what you have posted you must have a main report and at least one subreport being used to produce these totals.

The value in at least one of your totals must be coming from a variable, in which case there is nothing to drill down into for that total.

To get a drill down for both totals you would have to base your report on a query, which comprised  a union between the Tasks and Memo tables and a left join from the User table to that union (sub) query.

That would eliminate the need for any subforms and so would give you drill down within the main report for both totals.

Hi Peter,

About one hour before your answer, I found the same solution with the union. But you've earned the points ;-)
