Using CR: 9.2.2

there is a report that am i trying to verify against the database, when i go Database > Verify Database it works fine, however the designer of the report wants to me to also verify the sub-reports and claims that the above method only verifies the main report against DB.

so he asked me to go Database -> set database location to have the "Sub Reports" also verified against DB. when i do that, the whole CR crashes ??? any idea what is causing this?

Thank you,

Crystal will do that, it happens in 7.x, 8.x, and even 11.x.  Do the subreports separately.

Just right-click on the subreport to edit it, then set database location again.

Where can i see the sub-report to right click on it though? on my report explorer all i see is the actual report, but when the designer sent me screenshot when he goes to Database > set DB location, he sees the sub-reports, any other way to access the sub-reports?

Thanks for your help.

I don't know what to say, you either find them on the report canvas, or select them from the report explorer.

Verify is supposed to check the subreports also, there shouldn't be a reason to check the subreports separately.

The subreport will look like any other object or field on the report.
When you mouse over it you should see Subreport:Subreport Name
