How would I go about making a sub report inside of a report?

I have a report that reports on data from a temp file, but where I have control breaks I need to have a small sub-report with detail data from another temp file to display detail totals.

Thanks in advance for any help :)

I would think that a local or global call to another report cycle on the control break should provide the functionality that you need, although I have not tried it.
Things should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler

A file read and header ID on the control break might be enough without requireing a global
call. It may be possible NOT to have to access a file for totals if you can handle them
during the report?
