Referring to a subreport (Error 2455)

Hi,

I have a Report with a subreport, and I want to assign a value to the
control source of a control on the subreport depending on the value
given by the user in a separate form. Based on advice from the online
help and from other posts in this group, I wrote the following code
which is called on the On Open even of the main report. I have tried
several variations on this, which always result in the same error
message-

Run-time error 2455 'You entered an expression that has an invalid
reference to the property Form/Report.'

I have checked that the subreport name I am referring to is the
control name that appears in the main report and not the actual name
of the subreport.

THE OFFENDING CODE:
[Reports]![Insufficient Crew Report]![SubReport4 Basingstoke And
Deane].Report!TotalPe rcentOnRun.Cont rolSource = tempvalue

I hope that this makes sense to someone, I've run out of ideas!
Thanks in advance,
Kirsty

You can only set a report object's RecordSource property at run-time from
within the execution of its OnOpen event. Access initializes subreports
before parent reports, so the subreport's OnOpen event has already completed
by the time the main report's OnOpen event tries to set it.

What you have to do is have the Subreport set its own Recordsource property
from its own OnOpen event handler.

I have created a report and subreport in VB/ASP.NET. The report works fine but the subreport will not display. The subreport, when displayed as a standalone report, works fine. Any help I can find on this error refers to the WinForms.ReportViewer and none to the WebForms.ReportViewer. Anyone have any guidance?
