I have a report that is based on a query and it displays only the current record that i want to view....i have added 2 sub reports to it but i am having a problem with those:

- when there is only 1 or no data entry in each of the subreport the main report shows up fine and i can see only the record that i want to see on one page
- but if there is more then one entry in any of the subreports the page number gets multiplied by that i.e. if there are 2 records in any subreport i get 2 pages of the report containing the exact same data along with the subreport having the exact same data

what i want is the report to just show the record that it is on and also just expand the subreports if there is more data rather then giving me multiple pages of the same data

When setting up a subform we have to set up the relationship between the form and the subform.
In reporting as well, we have to identify the Master Field and the Child Field so we don't run into the duplication error you are experiencing.

Suppose in your report 'ID' is the key field of the main report and 'OrderID' is the key field of the subreport.  If they are the common field then enter "ID" in Link Master Field and "OrderID" in the Link Child Field.

Point to the object which is the subreport and right-click, choosing Properties and go to data tab to find the Link Fields.

i have already defined those and the data is linked perfectly the only thing is that is shows the same data multiple times depending on the number of records in the subreport for e.g. if the subreport has 4 records it will shows the whole report along with the subreports 4 times on 4 different pages

here is the query the report is based on...it just shows data for the current record on the form

SELECT tblcorp.clientname, tblcorp.contactperson, tblcorp.telephone, tblcorp.tradingaccno, tblcorp.cdcaccno, tblcorp.memorandum, tblcorp.boardresolution, tblcorp.Specimen, tblcorp.poaauth, tblcorp.a4dc, tblcorp.thankyou, tblcorp.dateofaccopening, tblcorp.uin, tblcorp.address, tblcorp.active, tblcorp.commslab, tblcorp.lowerlock, tblcorp.upperlock, tblcorp.dateofclosing, tblcorp.reasonforclosing, tblcorpcomm.changedate AS tblcorpcomm_changedate, tblcorpcomm.prevupperlock, tblcorpcomm.newupperlock, tblcorpcomm.prevlowerlock, tblcorpcomm.newlowerlock, tblcorpcomm.prevcommslab, tblcorpcomm.newcommslab, tblcorpsalesper.changedate AS tblcorpsalesper_changedate, tblcorpsalesper.oldsalesperson, tblcorpsalesper.newsalesperson, tblcorpsalesper.reasonforchange

FROM (tblcorp LEFT JOIN tblcorpcomm ON tblcorp.tradingaccno=tblcorpcomm.tradingaccno) LEFT JOIN tblcorpsalesper ON tblcorp.tradingaccno=tblcorpsalesper.tradingaccno

WHERE (((tblcorp.tradingaccno)=[Forms]![frmcorp]![tradingaccno]));

If your subreport is showing up for EACH related record, then either (a) your subreport recordsource is incorrect or (b) your report or subreport's Groupings are incorrect or (c) as Robert said, your master/child links are incorrect or missing.

Have you added any grouping to the subreport? any to the main report?

I assume the SQL you posted above is for the main report? Can you show the SQL for the subreport?

At least show us the Property Sheet of each of the subreports.
(i.e. include a graphic of each with their Link Master Field and Link Child Field filled in)

@LSMConsulting:i just dragged and dropped the form in the report and as the relationship is defined it linked to the table perfectly...as for the sql it is just has  the recordsource set to the corresponding table

@coleventures: i am attaching screenshots....tblcorpcomm is the table source of the subreport and tblcorp is the main table which has the primary key

If the image 3.jpg is a query, then thats the problem.

Your Top report should have this sql
SELECT * FROM tblCorp.
Since it seems that you want to show the tradingacc regardless of records in corpcomm and corpsalesper, no other tables should be in that query.

Your subreports should have this:
SELECT * FROM tblcorpcomm
SELECT * FROM tblcorpsalesper

And then LinkMaster/LinkChildfields should be set, as mentioned in the other posts.
