Open Sub Report in New Window

Hi,

We have an application which is integrated with crystal reports.

So when you open a report from the application it opens up in a new window. (Ours is a web based application and crystal reports opens up in IE browser)

We have some reports which have subreports (on demand ), is there any crystal report configuration through which these subreports can be opened in a new window, as of now they open in the same main report window.

Thanks in advance

    hello,

    you may wish to look into saving the subreport as a separate report and then:

    1) calling the report via opendocument (if your app sits on top of businessobjects enterprise or crystal reports server)

    2) calling the report via URL reporting if your app does not utilize the above platforms

    i can't guarantee the above will work as it may depend on your environment that you are hosting the reports in.

    see the help guide [here |http://help.sap.com/businessobject/product_guides/boexir31/en/xi3-1_url_reporting_opendocument_en.pdf]for more information on linking

    as per using a subreport and opening in a new window, this doesn't really work.

    if you want though, you can use a Report Part link to go from the open subreport back to the main report. please see more on Report Part linking in your crystal report's online help.
