Mainreport: Datafile Subreport: OLEDB Won't Print, Help!!!

Mainreport: Datafile Subreport: OLEDB Won't Print, Help!!!

Mainreport: Datafile Subreport: OLEDB Won't Print, Help!!!

Hi guys,

I have a report that gets it data from an access database as a datafile. It has 3 subreports in it, that all access the database the same way. We had to add a new field into a subreport, but the only way we could get the information was to change the source of hte sub from datafile to OLEDB
However, now it won't print from within our VB app??!!

Is there anything I should know about mixing data connections like this, and also is there anything in the RDC that changes with OLEDB? I've connected to a remote sql server before using oledb, but never a local db and with a report with mixed connections.
