subreports repeat in the main form

subreports repeat in the main form

I have a country report which contains several subreports. The subreports essentially are sections of about 10-20 fields.
So, I have the first 10 or so questions followed by 6 subreports. In testing the report, I notice that the subreports are duplicating. For instance, the section 3 subreport will display, then there is a blank page, then the subreport displays
agsin, then the next section or subreport displays it's 15 or so fields, then repeats itself again.
I don't understand what's happening. Can anyone help me understand how to fix this.

RE: subreports repeat in the main form

Can you explain your report further? From what you wrote I believe each sub report is showing for every record? Is it possible to put the sub fields in the main report?

RE: subreports repeat in the main form

If you have duplicated subreports appearing, it typically means the higher level report's record source contains a child table that should be removed. If you can't figure this out, you should provide the record sources of your reports, the relationships between your tables, and the link master/child properties of your subreport controls.
