(Not) Opening a Subreport

I have a subreport on my main report that is intended to display a single field.  When the user views the report, a link "finger" appears when the user mouses over the subreport/field.  If the user then clicks the link, the subreport appears.

How do I stop this from happening?

The viewer in question is part of a third party (Spectrum Construction Software) application.

is the report set as an on-demand subreport (although that doesn't sound like the correct pointer for it)?

No.  The "On Demand" box is unchecked.

Does it display the number correctly?

Subreports can be drilled into in the manner you are describing.

Well, there is no number/value to display, which it doesn't display, so I guess you could say it's correct.

The point is that I don't want the user to drill down.  The subreport is a single field with a single value (per main report) on the main report.  I want the subreport to be displayed just like the main report field next to it.  That is, not allow the user to click on it to bring up the subreport.

Try this idea

Add a textbox to the report.
SIze it to be slightly largeer than the subreport image
Put it over the subreport
Right click the textbox
Click FORMAT TEXTBOX
On the COMMON TAB
Click READONLY
Click LOCK SIZE AND POSITION

The textbox will "hide" the subreport from being clicked but allow the data to show.
y making it readonly and locking the user can click on it but nothing happens

The area where the subreport is located.  Just because it's blank (no data) doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
