Is it possible to have a subreport inside a subreport?

Hi experts
I am making reports using VS2008, Report, and C#.

My main report (main.rdlc) contains a subreport (sub1.rdlc). I would like to have another subreport (sub_sub1.rdlc) inside the first subreport (sub1.rdlc).

With one "level" of subreport, I can configure the subreport processing event as:
reportViewer.LocalReport.SubreportProcessing += LocalReport_SubreportProcessing;

Open in new window

In the event handler, I add datasource to the first subreport ("sub1.rdlc").

My question is how to provide datasource to the subreport inside the first subreport? ie. "sub_sub1.rdlc"


PS. I can't find any category for "Microsoft Reporting Service". Please excuse me if I'd put it in the wrong one.

In SSRS yes this is possible.  Subreports are separate .rdl files, each with its own data source, typically by entering in the subreport parameters so that parent and child reports function correctly.
