  • Hi,

    You need to deploy the 3 rdls to the UI Interface, since sub report also a Physical report which needs to set up the DSN settings. If you dont do it, when you click the Main report then you will get the Sub report not found message from the Report Server.

  • Before you  deploy the 3 rdl, you should control the parameters. If these subreports use the main report's parameters, you can set the subreport properties->parameters-> 

    <subreport_parameter_name>   =Parameters!<mainreport_parameter_name>.Value

  • yes I think you should deploy the subreports onto report server.

    Uhm...im just curious, has someone out there tried not to deploy the subreport and still successfully deployed the report showing its subreport???without the error?? Because i was thinking that it would be great if the subreport will automatically be in-one with the main report(as it was embeded??)hehe..Could it be possible?Is there any work around like that?Hope to hear from someone who knows..
