    I have a report with 2 tables, each one from a different dataset: in the first I have all the information about some folders, with a row for each folder... and in the other one all the information about the files of those folders, with a row for each file... I have done it doing groups, the first by FolderName and the second one by FileName...

    It works perfectly, but now I would like to join all the information in only one table so firstly the report show the information of a folder and after that, the information of its files... and just the same with the rest of folders...

    The problem is that I can't modify the queries so i have 2 datasets... why I can't have a table inside another table and each one from a different dataset??? another suggestions to do it???

    Thanx in advance!!

    Why don't you create a single dataset by joining required tables?

    Hi Satya!!

    Well, I think I would have too much information repeated if I get all the information in a single dataset, I mean, I would have folder data so many times as files in the folder...

    If I dont find another solution I will have to use that but I hoped to find a better way...
