I don't know if this is possible but I was wondering if you can run/get the records from a subreport separately from the main report? The reason why I ask is the requirements for the subreport multiplies the total records returned greatly and a lot of the time the subreport records are not really needed. Is this a pipe dream?

Depending on  the version you can save the subreport as its own file then run it.

If you right-click the subreport and make it an on demand subreport then it will only run when the user actually clicks it.

I think version 9 supports that.  The .Net or Visual Studio versions don't support it.
