MS Access 2010 subreport problem

I have a report based on employee details.  The source is a table I have built specifically for this report - tblEmpCharges.  The user can specify whether or not to 'show details' for each employee.

 The main report is grouped by employee ID, and I show summary info at the employee header level.   I want the report detail to have a subreport which shows the employee details.  If the user specifies don't show details' I intend to set the source of the subreport control to nothing., so only employee summary line will show.

The subreport has exactly the same source as the main report, and I want to set up the parent/child to be EmployeeID.  However, every time I try to insert the subreport into the main report (detail section) Access crashes completely.

I have checked the subreport by viewing it independantly - all good.  Also, main report is fine if there is nop subreport.

So, my questions are:
Can you have a subreport with same source as parent report in the report detail section?
Is there a better way to show or not show employee detail depending on user request?

Thank you.
