Sub Report controls for printing

P: n/a
Hi,

I've got a sub report that has been set to print down then across as the
data is sorted in date order. This sub report displays and prints as per my
design when dealt with as a stand alone report. However, when the sub
report is embedded into the main report, the sub report will only show and
print data when the main reports Can Grow controls for the detail section
are set to Yes. I've tried all settings I can think of for the main report,
even to the extent of putting only the sub report in the details section -
still to no avail. Obviously if I change the sub reports settings back to
print across then down, all is well, but it's definately not what I want.

Any suggestions??

Multi-Column subreports have to snake across, then down unless they have CanGrow
turned off. Subreports have no sense of the page events in the parent so a
downward column has no idea when to start a new column.
