I have been attempting for a week now to get multiple subreports on a main report to go into multiple columns on the main report.  Instead, the subreports show up on the 2nd page?  At no time do they ever go over to the next "logical" page, but instead create new pages and show up in the first column.  I have verified that the subreports do indeed fit horizontally within the 2 columns of the report.

Is there anyway to fix this?

I did end up figuring this out by laying down a Left and Right panel and setting up the Subreports appropriately inside each one.

Good afternoon Tim,

Could you post some of your html and backend code that you used to create a multi column subreport?
It is exactly what I would like to do for a current project.

Thank you so much,
Jovonne

There's no code or html.  Basically throw 2 Panel controls on your page.  One docked left, and the other docked to fill the right area.  Then just place your other subreports in the Panels.  Now, you're going to have to play with the sizes of the Panels until you get it right because no amount on "eye-balling" it in the designer will work.  Plus, I was data-binding to a DataSet/DataTable, so there is no support in the designer for that.  My code wouldn't make sense to anyone anyway, it was all about building a DataSet with the aggregated data.
