Have a stored procedure that massages alot of data.  It returns two sets of records.  I would like to use the first set for the details of the main report and the second set as a subreport for those main report details.  I could separate it into 2 sprocs, but would rather not since there's a lot hits to the server, why run it twice?  When I refresh the dataset it only sees the first set of results.  Anyway to make this work as is or should I just separate it?

I've almost always had to separte the two datasets, and call the 2nd from the first, as a subreport.

Of course, it is more optimal to collect all the data in one dataset, because it reduces server round trips, and simplifies the data processing.  Again, I've almost always had to do a second dataset with a subreport, but maybe you can try it differently.  First create your table that contains both sets of records, but don't detail it -- I think you want to put it into groups.  Then, you just filter the child table to the parent table, on the data return.

This is a good read on using the lookup function to retrieve from two datasets:

I ended up joining my 2 datasets and used grouping and conditional row suppression to make it appear the way they would like it to appear.

Also, thanks for the tip about Lookup function...never used it but now I will.
