how to restrict drill down to sub-report in crystal reports


I am having drill down issue will Crystal Reports for Enterprise. When a report with sub-report is published to the enterprise server and if a user moves the mouse pointer on to the sub-report and click, it is drilling down to the sub-report. I need to restrict this behaviour.

I tried placing a text box on sub-report and had no luck.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you,

    Hi Sri,

    If your Subreport spans multiple pages then you'll Not be able to prevent it from being drilled into.

    The Text Object workaround only works for Subreports that stay within a page.

    Here's another workaround that works for CR 2008 Designer + DHTML Viewers. I'm not sure if this works for CR for Enterprise.
