    I'm pretty sure that's not possible.   I avoid sub-reports like the plague that they all too often are.   Change your overall design to eliminate the need for it.

    Can't you just drop a tablix inside your report and refer to a textbox on it? Of course, you'd have to merge the two datasets...
