I am developing a school report for student information. I have a free form report using text boxes to hold various fields for a single student. The student also has multiple occurrence data (eg bus data, contacts, and medical alerts) that I want to list using a subreport. I would like to define the width of the subreports and run the subreports side by side after the free form. When I try doing this, the subreport’s width expands to the right and pushes the neighboring report down the page. I tried confining the width by running the subreport within a rectangle. I was careful about limiting the width of the subreport’s tablix and body. But this did not work. I should mention that the subreport was developed from a copy of another subreport, but with columns deleted to decrease the width of the report. Any suggestions?
ANSWER: I was wondering if you have tried increasing the size of the report “Body".
Right Click on an empty spaces in the Body of the Report, and select “Body Properties” andunder “Size”, increase the Width. This will give you more room for your two sub-reports

If I understand your issue, assuming you are using a List I would put a tablix in the list at the bottom to hold your multiple occurrence info rather than use a subreport.
Sorry, I haven't had success with this approach.
Thanks Nube. Actually, I'd like to confine my subreports so that they will print to a standard 8.5/11 pdf format.
