To all the compound report afficionados-- Does anyone know if it is possible to have a compound report WITHIN a compound report? Here's my example: I am creating a compound PDF report that contains 4 reports and 12 graphs. One of the 4 reports contains 6 small sub-reports, displayed on one page in 2X3 fashion. I have created this report using the compound PDF layout tool with report coordination on - it looks great. Problem is, I need it to be included with the other reports and graphs, but each report is only coordinated within its own report type. So the packet order would be: Report 1, sortfield1 Report 1, sortfield2 Report 2, sortfield1 Report 2, sortfield2 Graph 1, sortfield1 Graph 1, sortfield2, etc.
We have been using this report since the 4.3.6 days before PDF layout was even available so it is using some really complicated code. I have been dreading having to rewrite it and procrastinated as long as possible, but the days has finally come.
