    Hi Sridhar,

    I'm going to write only 1 point for advantage and 1 point for Do's and Don't's.

    Advantage:

    Sub Report can be looking at a different schema than main report itself.

    Do's:

    Put the sub-report in the Report Header line and not in the Detail line, because if you put it in Detail line, the sub-report will be calculated/generated once per detail row, which is not the optimized way to do it.


    Thanks,

    Mahboob Mohammed

    Sridhar,

    Few advantages

    • Subreports when properly implemented can enhance the End User experience and reduce the workload on the Infrastructure thereby improving your ROI.
    • Subreports allow control over when and what additional data is to be displayed.
    • Subreports allow you to use multiple data sources in to a single report and Allow you to pass data and variables at runtime between unrelated data sources to make professional single view reports.

    Disadvantages:

    Subreports can increase processing time if they are not on demand.
