In most cases not. It depends on the exact requirements. If you give some
more detail, maybe we can work something out.

Terry;

I basically have three sub-reports in the main report. The main report
selects a single row and the sub-reports do the rest. All the sub-report
"auto-size" that why i don't put them in the head and footer sections.

Does any of this info help?? Maybe I can use a group somehow and put a page
break for each group?

I appreiciate your replies.

Larry,
In you situation you can make it work.
After your first nested report, you insert a 'pagebreak' nested report, that
will cause a page break.

To make this report, define a new report using 'external' as the datasource
and tabular as the presentationstyle.
On the 'Result set description' page you add one column, e.g pagebreak of
type string, length = 1. On the report you use 'Rows, Data' and add one row
of data with any value, e.g. 1. Now create a group on this column and make
sure you set the 'new page on group break' option. Save your report as
d_pagebreak and insert into your main report.
