The following approaches are available to achieve a similar to the desired scenario:
- Use Table items or other data items to represent detail information, instead of using SubReport items.
- Use Drillthrough report action pointing to the same report but passing different report parameters. Based on the passed report parameters you can hide/show report items, vary the report presentation and data.
- Use sub-reports, but embed them in the master report as XML. There are different report source types which can be used in conjunction with the SubReport item and you may find one that is more suitable for your scenario. For more details, please check the Report Sources help article.
