Yes.

Right click on the subreport and select 'Change subreport links', select your paramters from the main report and link them to fields in the subreport.

This is documented in more detail in the help files.

Agree.

If the subreport has parameters make sure you choose the parameter fields from the subreport not the parameter fields Crystal adds.

Crystal adds parameter fields and they start with pm_
