Hi Randy,

the subtitle aka 245$b is being populated front the actual marcxml record
stored for each bib in the biblio_metadata table.

Thus, in order to fetch the subtitle in your SQL report, you will need to
pull it out of the marcxml data using the ExtractValue XML function in
MySQL / MariaDB.

If case you are not familiar with the syntax to use, the Koha SQL Reports
library on the koha wiki has several examples of this.
