Consider using On Demand subreport.  The only other solution for this that I'm aware of is one of the 3rd-party Crystal Reports viewers listed at http://kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html
That viewer can use a Crystal formula to trigger (on double-click of the report section where the formula is located) the viewing of another report and pass to that report parameter values based on info in the first report's section.   The advantage over On Demand subreports is that the called report can contain its own subreport.

That is one of the reasons I want to use it instead of an on demand sub report. I already knew about using data link viewer (we have it). I was trying to find out if there is another way. Reading the information on it, it sounded like you might be able to do it with a formula.
