6.9. Sub-datasets

A report can define a number of sub-datasets. A sub-dataset is used to describe data that then can be used to feed data to charts and crosstabs. JasperAssistant groups these definitions under a single SubDatasets node in the Outline View. New sub-datasets can be added by using the context menu associated to this node.

A sub-dataset can define a number of variables, parameters, fields and groups, in the same way as it's done at report level. For more details please see Section 6.8, “Variables”, Section 6.6, “Parameters”, Section 6.7, “Fields” and Section 6.11, “Groups”.
