Crystal Reports - Formatting one Group Header data across columns with details.

Hello Everyone,

I have two-column report that needs to use multiple level of grouping.

Unfortunately, CR treats both columns as being part of the same group. It doesn't span down the page completely and then start at the top of the page. It only starts at the top of where the current group started.


Here is a sample:

GH1

GH2

GH3

GH4 – Data1

Detail 1 Detail 2

GH4 – Data2

Detail 1 Detail 4

Detail 2 Detail 5

Detail 3 Detail 6

Here is what I wanted it to look like:

GH1

GH2

GH3

GH4 – Data1 GH4 – Data2

Detail 1 Detail 1

Detail 2 Detail 2

GH4 – Data3 Detail 3

Detail 1 Detail 4

Detail 2 Detail 5

Detail 6


I have attached the design of the reports please do help me find the solution to get this format of report in place.

    Do you also have a screenshot of the report's preview page?

    Have you tried going to the section expert, and in the column layout tab changing the values for Printing Direction: Across then down or Down then across?
