Hello,
i'm evaluating telerik reporting. I have made some simple report and i found telerik very simply but i cant find a way to insert the same page header and footer on different reports. With other reporting tools i create a report for the header and one for the footer. Than, on every header and footer i place a subreport and as a source of the report the header or footer. The problem with telerik reporting is that  the subreport item cannot be inserted on a header or footer so i dont know how to do that.
Any idea?

Best regards,

Hi evald,

Page headers and footers are not related to the report itself, but are relative to the margins of the report's media, i.e. to the paper or screen. That is why placing SubReports and Table items in Page Header/Footer (which are in fact separate data regions) is not allowed by design. Until recently, databound items were not allowed in those sections as well, but we've changed that due to popular demand.
What you can do is prepare a report that would be used for header/footer info only and then inherit this report - more info available in this forum thread.

Best wishes,

Hi Steve,
Using inheritance works. Thank you.
