    Hi Manuel,

    You can use described by my colleague in the following forum thread: Report Inheritance.

    Other approaches I can suggest you are:
    1. Use the Standalone Report designer and create a template, which can be used as a start for any other report;
    2. Use Master-Details scenario, where the data will be in the master report and each sub report's DataSource can be bound using the ReportItem.DataObject (using the Parent keyword e.g. ReportItem.Parent.DataObject, allows you to bubble up in the master report structure to get the needed data scope).

    I hope the above information helps you.
