Subreport "no data"

edited September 2008 in Subreports
Hello,

Is there a way to get an "empty" print of a subreport when there are
no data?

I know the pipeline option NoDataBehavior, and this works with the
main report, but is there something similar to also get the empty
subreports to be printed?

Thankx,

Chantal

    Hi Chantal,

    Setting the NoDataBehaviors property of the subreport to ndBlankPage will
    give you a blank page instead of the subreport components. If you would
    like to remove the subreport completely, you will need to check to see if
    there is any data before the subreport prints and set its visibility
    property accordingly.

    Hi Nico,

    Sorry if I was not clear, but I actually do want the subreport to
    print, even empty, also when there are no data...

    I can print an empty report when the master pipeline has no data, I
    get all the labels and layout, also for one empty record in the detail
    section, but I don't get any of the subreports...and I need those too.

    Customers use the empty reports as form to fill out missing
    information...I need to be able to show what information is missing...

    Is this possible?

    Thankx,

    Chantal

    Sorry, Just found it.

    When I set each subreport to "ndBlankReport" I get exactly what I
    want...

    Thankx,
