Combining Multiple Reports

Hi there,
I have 3 individual reports created in Crystal Report 11: Namely ReportA, ReportB, ReportC.    
All of these reports has a date range parameter.  What i would like to know if it is possible how can i combine all 3 of these reports into 1 "parent " report.   Someone has mentioned using SubReports within a main report.

Thanking you
Heather

You can have ReportA, ReportB and ReportC as individual reports. When you want them to run as one report, you can create a new report and then insert these other reports as subreports.

thanks got that working.
Perhaps you can help me with this question.  
ReportA runs well on its own.  Yet when i combine ReportA into a new report as a subreport with ReportB. The result is that ReportA will not display info yet ReportB will.
Any ideas on this one for its possible reasons.

Thanks

How are you running it?

Is it in the designer or through an application?

Heather,

Make sure that the section that you're placing ReportA in, isn't suppressed.
Do you need to pas any parameters to this report?
Have you verified the database ?

Hi,
Being new to Crystal i am not sure what you mean by the report being supressed, please could you explain so that i can answer your question.  The only parameters is a date range, but both reports have a date range.  Both reports look at the same database.

Thanks Heather

Heather,

You can conditionally suppress fields, sections, etc.
To check whether the sectio has been suppressed: go to Report -> Section Expert -> Click on the section where your subreport is placed(eg. Details) -> Under the "Common" tab you will see a list of check boxes with a "X+2" next to each. Check the "Suppress" function. If the "X+2" is RED then there is a formula in that could suppress the section.

To "verify the datase" go to Database -> Verify Database.

Hth,
Spykair
