I have a Main Report with a subreport that should display the totals for the current record only (contractID)  

I am using the Master/child link, however, the subreports seems to display all values.

I even tried limiting the query of the subreport using a variable - without success.

What is the best approach to display only those values on the subreport that matches the current record on the Mainreport?

The master/child links are used by Access to filter the contents of a subreport.  If they are not working, delete the subreport, save the report, compact and repair and then add the subreport back making sure to properly set the master/child links.
