I have a parent report which has a title text box and beneath that I want to place two subreports next to each other so that the combined width of the subreports match the width of the parent report's text box. How do I do this please?

The width of a subreport is controlled through the specific subreport itself (so not through the Subreport control which you use to put it on the report).

You need to ensure that the sum of the width of both reports match with your title box.  This can become quite challenging if you're using a matrix that grows horizontally, hopefully that's not the case?

Is that the width of the chart itself (if the subreport is just a chart) or the interactive size of the subreport?

Hmm, good question, I would guess it is the width of the body (not at a pc right now so can't test this)

The sub-reports are just standalone reports themselves. run them one at a time to to size them up to match the size of your main report.
Also the sub-report normally sits inside a retangle in the main report of your table. The sub-report will only grow as big as that retangle.
