Duplicating Data in Crystal Reports

I have a crystal report that will duplicate data on the second page if it cannot fit it all on the first page. It seems to be happening with details and sub reports and ONLY on the second page. I have checked some reports that span onto a third page and they seem fine.

The data is being pulled from our ERP system SAP Business One.

I have attached screen shots for reference.

    Dear Mr.Mark

    The first you must to check a link between main report and sub report because so i think this problem is a data or link not property for display report

    second, if all of property/config report is true, you can used a group of item. (add group) and then you must to used detail under group.

    I would suggest to check "Keep Together" box for the Details section and for subreport.

    Thanks for the responses.

    I have sub reports in the report footer sections, so they print at the bottom of the report after all details have been displayed. The "Keep Together" boxes are all checked.

    I have noticed the error changes when I adjust the page size of each section, I can get all 8 rows to display on one page, but I'll then have the same problem when I try to print a report with 10 rows of data. If I adjust again the problem will move to another number of rows.... Maybe this is something to do with page sizes?

    • The item data is displayed in the details section. The sub reports are displayed in the group footer, and are summed on the data (They are basically totals and shipping data on a PO - See attached image of the reports I submitted earlier).

      I couldn't figure out what was happening but have created a workaround by forcing the report to start a new page after every 8 items in the details section. This leaves a bit of white space at the bottom of each page, but I don't get any duplicates now!
