Subreport not dynamically returning data, wants to be manually double clicked

Hi Guys,

I would appreciate your help with the above

I have two reports, Main and a sub report, these two are linked by a calculated field,

• Main report asks for a relative date e.g Yesterday

• Calculated field(Mindate) in Main rpt (if user selects relative date of yesterday, yesterday start(00:00:00 time stamp added)

• Calculated field(Maxdate) in Main rpt (if user selects relative date of yesterday , end (23:59:59 time stamp added)

• Both above two fields are linked to the subreports {?Startdate} and the {?enddate}

• I have placed the calculated/{?StartDate/?Enddate} fields in the report and can verify that im passing the right populated fields from the main to the sub report.

• The subreport is placed on the Detail field of the Main report

Now my problem, when I run the report, I get blank preview report, but when I double click on the subreport within the preview, the report generates and gets populated with the correct data, I don’t understand why the data is not dynamical presented, I have done the same on crystal 2013, on a BOE 4 environment and it works fine, but using Crystal Reports 10, Crystal Enterprise 10 I just cannot seem to get it to work

I have tried the On-Demand, re-import when opening settings with no success, I even re-did the Main report/links, but still get the same results, please help

    Hi mjmapi,

    Make sure 'On-demand' is not selected for the Subreport.

    Next, make sure 'Can Grow' is enabled for the Subreport (Right-click subreport > Format > Common tab)
