SSRS Subreport Not Displaying in Main Report
Posted on 2014-04-25
I'm using BIDS to develop a report in SSRS 2012.
The main report shows responses to a survey on courses being taken; there are five questions, the first four allowing answers in the format 1 to 4 (i.e. 1= Poor, 2 = Satisfactory etc.). The fifth question is a simple Yes/No. The report aggregates the responses and shows as a percentage, so for example, English Language may have 13% saying the course content is 4 (Excellent). So far so good for the first four questions.
However, because the fifth question is in a different format I've created a sub-report so I can show the responses as % Answering yes v No.
The main report has no parameters and has groupings on course and course Level; the sub report also groups on Course and Course Level, and takes input parameters on Course, Course Level and a third parameter (@Recommend) which tells the stored procedure it only wants to see the responses to the fifth question. The @Recommend parameter is hard-coded into the subreport datasource; the other two parameters are entered manually if the report is run stand-alone, or are passed from the main report.
The sub-report works fine if run on its own. It also works if I embed it within the Tablix of the main report which I tried to test if it was passing the parameters correctly. However, if I place it below the tablix of the main report it does not display. Is there something I'm missing or doing wrong?
