    Default Problem with sub reports

    Hello ,
    We are trying to create sub reports using Pentaho Report Designer 1.6.0 build 308. We want to create few charts on a single report page and so we thought of using subreports. We first created 2 different reports and saved them as sub1.report and sub2.report. After that we opened a new designer window, dragged 2 sub reports to the report header and then assigned each with the report names including file path (sub1.report and sub2.report respectively). We also set the query parameter as mentioned in
    http://wiki.pentaho.org/display/Repo...7.+Sub+Reports

    Note that we do not have any parameters for import/export.

    After doing all this, we are unable to see the subreport preview.

    Please let us know whether we have missed out any step.

    Thanks & Regards
    Sarath & Nisha

    Do you see the charts when you execute the subreports as standalone reports?

    The ChartExpressions behave very unfriendly if any of the properties is not set correctly - they do not give you error messages, they simply dont work.

    Yes we are able to see the subreports when they are run as standalone reports. Can you give us some link or explanation on what all are the properties that should be set for the sub reports to be visible through the master report?

    Another problem that we are facing is that we are able to create dataset only with name default. The report shows no data if any other name is given for the dataset. How do you think this can be solved.

    Thanks in advance
