Page footer not displayed on first page

I'm new to SAP Crystal reports and I'm given old reports to update.

In each report, there is a page footer.

It appears at the end of each page, but not at the end of the first page, just after the report header.

So, the work around I found was to put the content in the report header section and put some space between header report content and footer content, so that this appear more at the bottom of the page.

But the frame of the report header seems to be smaller than the page, and the footer is a little too high...

Note : there I see there is a blank space between the limit of the report header section and the limits of the bottom of the page...

Some question, then :

- I try to make the page footer appear on the first page : I found no formula that makes it disappearon the first page...

- Is it a general or report property to set to change the report header frame dimension? I tried with the page setup properties, without any solution

- Is there a place where properties for the section can be changed else than the section expert?

- I try to use the object properties, but again, no formula that makes the object of the page footer disappear on the first page

Any help would be appreciated...

    Hi Sabine,

    If the Report Header is too large and if the Page Footer can't fit on the remainder of the Page, CR moves the Page Footer to the next page (or even further until it can fully fit the Page Footer).

    There are workarounds, however, could you post the design page of your report please?

    • The Page Footer's size can never 'reduce' depending on the amount of data in it.

      If the Page Footer's contents on Page 1 are different than that of Page 2, you should consider creating two Page Footers.

      The Page Footer for Page 2 can be sized to a minimum depending on its contents.

      You can then check the 'Reserve Minimum Page Footer' option under Section Expert > Page Footer.

      You'd also need a conditional suppression logic on the two Page footers so they both don't show up together.
