I was wondering if there's a way to do what I need to do with this tool.. Basically I need a multi-row, multi-column detail section in the middle of the page, and more general info surrounding it. For example, if an item number can be associated with many lot numbers this is what I'm trying to do:

ItemNo   ItemNoDetail   LotNo  LotNoDetail  ItemNoDetail ItemNoDetail
                                   LotNo  LotNoDetail
                                   LotNo  LotNoDetail

ItemNo   ItemNoDetail   LotNo  LotNoDetail  ItemNoDetail ItemNoDetail
                                   LotNo  LotNoDetail

 

Any way I can format it like this? I can seperate the lot no as a different sql query, but I'm having lots of trouble trying to get the formatting right

Umm... I actually figured this one out myself... I wasn't using the sub-report correctly, and found out how to do so here:

Yep, subreports are usually the way to go for multiple detail sections in the middle of a "parent" report.

Hi,

You can use SubReport item - How to: Create a Master-Detail Report Using a SubReport Item.
Or a Table/List/Crosstab item - How to: Create a Master-Detail Report Using a Table.

It depends on whether you need to reuse the sub report as a content of other reports, if the layout cannot be achieved with a Table/List item.


I hope this helps.

Regards,
Stef
