Report Does Not Print Parents unless they have Children.

I have a 2-tier report, that is a report with parent and child data.

The data is being supplied by a dataset with two tables.

The report has a data band, using the one table and then a child data band using the other table.

In the child data band, I put in a filter expression like

[ParentId] == [ChildsParentId]

I want the report to print ALL of the parent records, and for parents that have children, I also want to print the child records "under" (after) its parent record.

However, the resulting report only prints the parent records that have at least 1 child record. The child records print fine. But I never get any parent records that don't have children to print.

I want.

Parent1, with no children

Parent 2, with no children

Parent 3, with a child

Parent 3's child

Parent 4, with a child

Parent 4's child 1

Parent 4's Child 2.

However, for me, the first 2 parents never print.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
