Report Footer space is reserved in sub report pages and will not use for records and is blank

In Crystal Report, suppressing Page Footer in all the pages except page #1, displays an empty space in all the pages except page #1.

We use crystal report to generate PDF Reports. Due to a requirement, to display the some details in the bottom of the first page, while designing the crystal report template, we had set up these details in the page footer and then have used a formula, to display the page footer only in page #1 and suppress the page footer in the rest of the pages. With this set up, the details gets displayed in the page #1 footer only, which is as expected. However from page #2 onwards, we do see an empty space at the second half of each page. This empty space corresponds to the space occupied by the footer in page #1. All pages except the page 1 prints half of the page with blank and no way to use that space to populate the records. How to use the complete page in sub reports for records population with no blanks. Let us know if any further details are needed.

    Unfortunately, this is just the way that the page footer works in Crystal. So, you'll need to find a different type of section to put that information for the first page into. What other sections appear on the first page?

    It has a summary of invoice in page 1.Remit section in the footer. Are you saying the content in footer to be moved to a different section of the page?

    Is there no way to use the space reserved for the footer.
