In MS-Access 2010, I’ve created 15 sub-reports.   I’m now adding the sub-reports to a “blank” report.    I can easily add 10 sub-reports to it (i.e., they "snap" right below each other).  However, once I get to the 11th sub-report, the container overlaps with the other sub-report containers.

Is there a maximum # (e.g., 10 ) of sub-reports that can be added to a blank (master) report?

Thanks,
EEH

I don't know of a specific maximum for subreports.  There is a maximum for controls and the subreport is a control but the max is far larger than 10.  Perhaps you are running into the max length of a report page which I think is 22".

Ok... thanks for the info... I'll look into it.    

Alternatively, I may sub-group these 15 reports into different categories (each w/ < 10).

Thanks,
