    Create a process-only report has your main report. Use it to collect filters and parameters needed by the other reports. Then run each report from the code of the main report.
    There are no bugs - only undocumented features.

    Not that I know of.

    I did something similar several years ago. Unfortunately, I no longer have that code. Give it a try. If you encounter issues, post questions along with what you have tried and the issues.

    The modification I did was slightly different as it used a codeunit instead of a process-only report. But the basic idea was the same. The purpose was to run a group of the client's month-end reports overnight using the Job Queue. The reports were printed to PDF and emailed to the users.

    When running each report you want to run it without showing the Request page. That was all the reports run with no additional user interaction.
