Page size on unlinked subreports

I have a requirement to combine 3 existing reports into one report. The reports are not linked. So, I've started with two. I opened the first report and saved it with a new name. I inserted a subreport in the report footer section. I get one report after the other as expected but the second subreport insists on being 8.5 X 11 even though the original report it was created from uses 11X17 just like the first report. Since both reports use 11X17 why is the subreport appearing with a different page size? That makes it truncate a whole lot of data I need in the report. I don't care how wide the report is as both of these reports are never printed, only downloaded into Excel.

I should add that if I am active on the subreport tab and check page size it says 11X17. There is no place that says 8.5X11 for the subreport.

How do I fix this?

    Yes, when you insert a sub-report into the Main report the horizontal size of the subreport shrinks, although the sub-report's page size could be larger.

    After you insert the Subreport in the Main report just increase the horizontal size of the subreport, just like you would increase the size of a normal field.

    • Yes, the Page Setup for the subreport will say 11/17. When you place it on the Main report it comes in as a long object with a default Width of 7.069. Right-click the Subreport and go to size and position and increase this value or you can increase the size of the field by pulling the field towards right just like you would normally do with a database/formula field.
