After my newsletter went out I heard from a user who had the “cascading” failure problem and received a solution from SAP. She was told to go into each subreport and open “File > Report Options”. There she was told to take out the check mark for the feature “Show Preview Panel”. She started doing this with all of her subreports and she never saw the problem again.
I suggested this fix to two other users that had experienced the same problem. It solved the problem for one user but not the other. So it may not be a sure fix for everyone, but it certainly is worth trying. Please let me know if this works for you or if it doesn’t.
That is also something that I didn’t know, that subreports can have “report options” that are set different than the main report. I had never checked but just assumed that the properties in “File > Report Options” applied to the entire container. Always good to learn something new.
