How to create a subreport that does calculations, but has no visible data

I have a report where I need to do calculations in a subreport, but I don't want to print anything there. It seems that if you make the subreport detail band hidden or zero height, its scripts don't run. If I set the band height to its minimum (0.01) then the scripts run but I get a bunch of white space on my report between items. I'm trying to find out if there is a way to make the scripts run without printing the subreport detail band.

Yes but it takes modification of the temp;ate XML code and some other tricks.
