Hi all i have two reports report1 and report2 that i created and they are saved under c:\used\thinkingeye\documents. Now i have to create a subreport (report2) under report 1. Both the reports have the same parameter, I'm using report builder 3.0. and in REPORT1 i clicked on the INSERT tab and clicked on the subreport. This is where i have two problems.
Problem 1 is i cannot make enough space under report1 to insert the subreport.
Problem 2 is when i inserted the SUBREPORT icon and clicked on the subreport properties , it gave me an option to browse to a location , but the browse location is defaulted to a folder "Recent Report and Servers". Now can anyone please guide me as how to get to the location? or should i deploy these two reports before creating a sub report? Please need help.

Problem 1: you can increase the report body size to display the subreport. If the size of the subreport is too big, then it will break into another page when previewing report.
Problem 2: If we want to add a subreport for a report in Report Builder, then the main report and subreport should be deployed to the Report Server, and they should be display in the same folder. Otherwise, the subreport cannot be shown when previewing report.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
