Choose the subreport button on the tool bar and either create a new subreport or add an existing repot.

Creating sub report is similar to creating sub form.

Open the report in design view.
Select subreport from the toolbar menu
Use your cursor to insert the sub report on the main report
Select the source object of the subreport (you can use a table,query or another report. I find it easier to create the other report which contain the data I want to use in the sub report first then inserting it in the subreport.)
link the report to the subreport using a field that is common in both

That should do it

Good luck

?
Can you explain what this means, please?

A subreport is designed to show Parent/Child (One-To-many) relationships.
Ex:
Customer-->Orders
Or
Employee-->Tasks

So, using a specific example from your data, can you explain what you are trying to achieve?
(A subreport may not even be needed...)

For example, if all you need are totals, you can do this quite easily in the Report Footer.

Drop a Textbox on the Report Footer and set the controlsource property to:
    =Sum([YourField])

So if you had a column of Prices and you wanted a total of them at the bottom of the report you would drop a Textbox on the Report Footer, and set the controlsource property to:
    =Sum([Price])
