linking sub reports

I want to link a sub report to a particular field on the main report. For instance, I want to include the delivery information (sometimes 2 or three delivery dates) for each order/job. I have tried using the formula editor, but it won't show me the main report fields so I can link it properly. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Steve,

    You can link a Main Report's field to a field on the Subreport - Not the other way around!

    If you wish to send a value to the Main Report, you can use a 'shared variable' that is initialized in the Subreport and refer to that variable in the Main Report. Do note however, that for shared variables to work in the Main Report, they need to be on a section below the section that holds the Main Report.
