Show subreport in page header RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why am I not allowed to add a Subreport element onto the page header?

    Scope: local reports (RDLC), edited in VS 2012.

    Reason: I want to design two reports: one to show some brief info on each person, and the other one to show the same brief info as a page header, plus some more in the body. The full info is also a subreport, so using header rows in a table doesn't work to force the brief subreport to show up on every page.

    Any solutions to this, except for violating the whole purpose of subreports and putting the brief contents verbatim onto the page header? For some reason I can't even add a table to a page header, so the layout has to be done manually - UGLY!..
