How do I keep together items in a group footer?

I have a report that has a line of detail, followed by a subreport, and then another subreport all in the group footer.  The report is also formatted to be displayed in two columns.  The problem I am having is that even with the keep together checkbox selected in the group footer, often times the line of detail and the first subreport are displayed and the second subreport is shown in the second column.  They need to all move to the second column if there is not enough room in the first column for everything to be displayed.  Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

For example:

Information               Subreport2

Subreport1               Information      

Subreport2               Subreport1

Information               Subreport2
Subreport1

When what I want is:

Information               Information

Subreport1               Subreport1

Subreport2               Subreport2

Information

Subreport1

Subreport2

Or:

Information               Information

Subreport1               Subreport1

Subreport2               Subreport2

                                 Information

                                 Subreport1

                                 Subreport2

    Hi Karen,

    The 'Keep Together' for a section works only for that particular section - it doesn't enforce on the entire group.

    Please go to the Group Expert > highlight the group field > options > options tab > check the 'keep group together' option.
