RE: Sub Reports with parameters

RE: Sub Reports with parameters

RE: Sub Reports with parameters


I have several sub reports as links and use begin date and end date as parameters which links to the main report. The reports work fine. My question is that when I open the main report to enter the date parameters I get a list of all the sub-reports above the parameter as well as on the side of the parameter. I've attached a screenshot of what I'm seeing. Is there a way to get rid of this. It looks terrible.

Thanks much!

RE: RE: Sub Reports with parameters

Check your subreport links. Look in the drop down in the bottom left of the screening screen and make sure you are linking from {?Parameter} to {?Parameter} and not instead using {?pm-?Parameter}.


RE: RE: Sub Reports with parameters

PS. You shouldn’t be embedding your parameters in a formula and then linking on the formula. Not sure why you’d do that.


RE: RE: Sub Reports with parameters

Thanks so much! worked like a charm! I haven't really needed to use sub-reports as links so I just took the defaults. Looks so much better!
