    I am having issues adding a subreport that uses columns and having it display those columns properly on the main report. If I preview the report that is being used as the subreport it does display properly, but when I preview the main report it displays the subreport as one long column which makes it take up more space. Is there some setting that I am missing?

    Apologize, but we are not clear about your issue. Could you please provide some more details? If possible, could you please provide a stripped-down sample with dummy data. So, that we can investigate and assist you further.

    I created a sample report with the data in an XML file. If you open the attached up in C1FlexReportDesigner you should see two reports, v_rpt_deliveryNoteDims is the sub-report and Main Report is well the main report. If you preview v_rpt_deliveryNoteDims you will see that the data is spread out across four columns making the entire report about 7 pages long, if you preview Main Report you will see that it now displays the sub-report as one single column and that it is taking up 27 pages now.

    I would like for it to display the sub-report the same as if you were to actually view the report with it displaying it as four columns.

    Thanks for the sample.

    We are are asking with the development team for update on this issue. The issue is SubReport under Footer doesn’t renders in 4 column while setting Layout.Column=4.

    However, if you put the SubReportField in Detail Section of MainReport and set Layout.COlumn=4 for MainReport. It will work.

    Please refer the attached working Report:

    As per the development team, it is a limitation of the footer section and is configured to work only in the detail section. Please render the SubReportField in Details Section to achieve your requirement.
