I have a report that contains a lot of "sub reports". I would like to extend the quality by adding a few things.
First, I would like to add a cover page. I created a "sub report" (that will act as a cover page) that contains only static data (images, texte, .. ).. but I would like to do better by adding a "Table Of content".. the idea is of course to have on this page the list of the chapters (each subreports), and the page where I can get it.
How can I do this ?
Also, at the end of this report I would like to add a few pages that I wrote in Winword. This contains the explaination of the elements used for this report. Can I add in this "RS Report" extra data such as word document ? If not, is the only solution is to add a "static" (text, .. ) empty sub report ?
Thanks for your support.

For the first question, if I understand correctly, you can to display each subreport’s name and the numbers of the pages it occupies in a table. In Reporting Services, it is impossible to get the page numbers that each subreport spreads across currently.
For the second question, if I understand correctly, you want the field in the tablix points to existing Word documents and the report display the content of Word documents at run time. Currently, the Reporting Services provides Image control but doesn’t provide other controls that can render the content of a document directly. To work around this issue, you can capture screenshots of the documents and save them as pictures, and then use Image controls in the table to display the document content for explanation.
Thanks for your understanding.

thanks a lot for your feedback.
About Q1, too bad it is not possible. For sure when you read (print) a report, having a "Table of content" with topics and page number is mandatory.
About Q2, the need is a bit different. I have a report with sub reports... but at the end of the report, I want to add some texte data... idealy a word document, that will context text such as définitions, explaination of what the data means... it is like if in the report, rather than "Add Text Box and put data in it"... I had a control such as "Add Word Document".
