Problem in creating a report from different tables

Hi Guys,

I was preparing a crystal report for my Rate Analysis Project. I used a data set for storing the result set. I got 5 tables (Project,Work Item,Work Item Equipment Cost,Work Item Labor Cost and Work Item Material Cost) and these tables are filled with a criteria that's based on a project number.

Basically a project has a certain work items and each work item has its own labor,equipment and material involved.Having this i tried to fill each data table with its respective sql statement.And then add the data tables to the data set and at the end load the data set to the report.

But i got the results printed on every single page which i don't know.I designed the report by putting some fields on the page header and the others on the detais section.But i wanted the result to be displayed like the second picture.The first one is the result i got.

    Hi Nebil,

    1) Go to the Group Expert > Add the Work Item No. field to the Group List

    2) Also add the field that contains records like Material, Labour, Equipment etc to the Group List below Work Item No.

    3) Add all the other fields to the Details Section

    4) Get rid of whatever database fields were used in the Page Header.

    5) Format the report as required.

    The thing that is giving me a different result is that crystal reports by default creates sql query that doesn't match the one i wrote on vb.Is there a way to tackle this problem.Crystal report is using JOIN but i'm using data tables and then loading them into a dataset.

    Is there a way to overcome this problem? Plus is it necessary to link the tables that have common fields?

      To clearly set the image to you,i have a project and this project has work items and each work item has a labor,material and equipment of it's own.

      So they are related by project and work item.That's why i created 2 groups.

      But what i really wanted was after finishing displaying the all labor records under that group,it would move to all material records,and so on.

      Shall i try sub group or another mechanism?
