Addressing subreport groups from a main report

    I have created two subreports on a main report to address the issue of
    different groupings in two different sections of a report. Now I have a
    followup issue.

    How do I now refer to controls on subreports? To be more specific: I give
    the user the option to view summary or detail. If they indicate "summary", I
    make all the "interior" groupings invisible, and vice versa. And, I also
    collect parameters (begin and end date) which the main record source and a
    whole group of "totals" queries employ in presenting the final report.

    With two subreports on a main report, how do I now address the groupings in
    the subreports and universally apply the collected parameter?

    Regarding the groupings on the subreport: on the Open Event of the main
    report I want to hide or show groupings on the subreports.

    I have tried:
    Reports!subreportcontainername!groupheadername.visible = true|false
    Reports!subreportcontainername!subreportname!groupheadername.visible =
    Reports!subreportname!groupheadername.visible = true|false
    Me!subreportcontainername!groupheadername.visible = true|false
    Me.subreportcontainername!groupheadername.visible = true|false
    Me.Controls("subreportcontainername").visible = true|false
    ...and several other variations

    and none of them work. How do I talk to the subreport!?

    I have not gotten as far as universally applying the collected parameter,
    since I haven't yet solved the above issue.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
