Adding sub reports to a report

Top  Previous  Next  


DataPA allows reports to contain any number of child reports called sub reports. Child reports, or Sub reports, are executed each time their parent section (the section in which the Sub report is placed) is printed. Sub reports can be based on the same data as the parent report, or child data based on a query containing multiple subjects, with split results selected so the query returns more than one recordset. You can add one sub report for each subject in your query. Once a sub report has been added, you can edit the sub report to define its contents and appearance, and delete the sub report to remove it.
