I have a sub-report (call it main sub-report), that contains several sub-reports on a master report and want to keep the entire main sub-report together when the report prints.  I can't seem to find a way to do this.  In the detail section of the main sub-report I have Keep Together = Yes but its not working.

I wouldn't want a page break unless the entire sub-form wouldn't fit.

As Jim said, this is a request.  You will need to play with sizes and spacing until you can make this happen.  Keep in mind that if any section grows, all bets are off.

Excel is far better for this type of formatting requirement.  If you are sure that the various subreports will normally fit in one page, you can export them to Excel and then select the whole page and use the shrink to fit feature to keep everything on a single page.
