Suppress, Hide

Hi,

I have a report with Detail A,B,C

If I Show or Hide any one of these, it affects all three.

If I Show, I have an option to Suppress for B and C, but A only has an option to Hide.

Baffled.

    Hi Matthew,

    I'm unsure if your goal is to Hide (to allow drill-down) or if you want to conditionally suppress the 3 sections.

    I don't know how familiar you are with Crystal, but you should be able to suppress each section independently of one another by using the suppression formula editor (button that says x-2) and putting your condition of suppression there.  (e.g., "if {parameter field} = "Detail A" then False else True" or "{datbase.field} <> 'Detail A'").

    I'm not used to answering questions, so forgive me if I have misunderstood your post.

    I hope this helps.


    Thank you,

    Erin

      Hi Matthew,

      Not TMI at all - sounds very interesting, challenging and fun.  I wish you the best of luck in the completion.

      Take care,
      Erin
