How to find out sub-report dependency?



We have multiple sub-reports which are used in multiple main report templates. All sub-reports have 'Re-import When Opening' checked. As a result, we don't need to go into every report template to update the common section. All we need is to update one sub-report.

We also want to know which report templates will be affected when we modify a sub-report. Is there a way to find out what reports are using another report as a sub-report? Or sub-report dependency? Currently we save reports on a physical location and we don't see any related option. Will BI tool be helpful?

We also tried to load the main report template in C# and loop through each sub-report.

ReportDocument cryRpt = new ReportDocument();

cryRpt.Subreports[0].FilePath is not supported.

Any recommendation for us to better manage the report template and sub-reports relationships?
