Bound subreports

    I may be a little dense, but what I'm trying to do with the VB6 version (AR2.0) sure is easier to do with the .Net version of AR!

    Simply, I want to create 4 subreports for 1 main report. The main report is called rptOrderForm, each subreport, let's call SubA, SubB, etc.

    I'd like to do this bound, with each report and subreport having its own ADO control. I've looked at the Help file, both the bound and unbound examples, and I didn't quite get it. Is there a better example that illustrates what I'm trying to do?

    I don't think you'll find much difference between platforms in this respect.

    Please see the walkthroughs and KB articles:

    Thanks for your response Peter. I will work with that. These are not embedded or grandchild subreports, and I had read the first walkthrough but was still stumped -- because it didn't work  [:S]

    If you would like to attach what you have done so far (project and data source), I can look into why it is failing.
