    Question Unanswered: How to create a Report with a lot of subforms?

    Hello,
    As always, I have a extrange question.

    How do I create a Report with a lot of Forms in it.

    I want to create a Report that shows a lot of Forms that I have created.
    The forms are called:
    f01, f02, f03...
    And each form is a PivotChart.

    As I see, I cannot make the Detail area greater than 55 cm. So, my problem is that I cannot fit all the PivotCharts.

    Any ideas how to solve this?

    Is there any way to make just one subform object and make it Source a table with the names of the forms?

    Thanks in advance for your comments and help.
    Saludos,
    pepemosca

    if you minimise each sub form
    place a formfeed as appropriate it will work....

    "formfeed"? What is that?

    "Minimize", as reduce the height of each subform in order to get all the subforms fit in the same report?

    Thanks for your comments.

    in the report designer you can insert a form feed.. it looks like an ellipsis (...)
    if you add your sub reports intot he main report, and then insert a form feed you shoul dget the paginaton you expect.

    I have seen a report which was comprised of 8 graphs.. each a subeport arranged as a block of 2 columns 4 rows.

    I have seen a MIS report which was n pages but arranged as one main report with multiple subreports inserted into the document using formfeeds and other 'tricks'
