Hi all,

I have a report that displaies main categories information and their subcategories.
When I show report to 1 main category no problem. I send main category ID to report constructor and get data of main category and its subcats,
but when I want to show all main categories, all subcats appears to every main cat.
For ex I have 3 main cats:
1- clothes and its subcats are (mens clothes,women clothes)
2- shoes and its subcats are (childeren, girls)

I have designed a report shows main cat info such as name and description and in this report another subreport list all subcats for this category.
When I call page to show this report and send category ID to page to select only 1 category no  problem but when I show all main cats it shows main cat info and all subcats not only this main category subcats.

So any solution to pass value from main report to its subreport in the current page??

Regards

hello

i think what you want to do is define a parameter for the subreport in your master report and then pass the ID of your main cat to the subreport. in the subreport you also define the parameter and filter for that id.
also check out the subreport section in the documentation because i think that shows this behaviour.
