Change source object of a sub report

Hi
I have a report with a sub report. Using a form, the user can pick which subreport he wants displayed. Lets call them rptSub1, rptSub2, rptSub3.
In the code of the main report, I wanted to change the source object of the sub report, based on the option selected. For example
If Option1 = True Then
Me.rptSub.Sourceobject = "rptSub1"

Open in new window

But the Access help states
Note  You can't set or change the SourceObject property in the Open or Format events of a report.
So is there a different way to change the sub report?
Thanks

you have to open the report in the design view (using VBA.)
, change the SourceObject, close the report with option to save.

how are you opening the report? from a form?

That's interesting that it says that as I'm able to change the SourceObject of a subreport in either the OnLoad, OnOpen, and OnFormat events.  I just tried it right now.

Yes, it does work. I guess the help is not always correct!
Thanks
