Conditional Page Header Suppression


Post Author: whellier

CA Forum: Formula

I have a report in v9.0 that I have inherited.

A formatting issue has come up which requires a page header to be conditionally suppressed.

The condition that triggers the suppression is that the last record printed in the detail section is displayed on the next to last page.

I thought I could readily address this by just creating a formula that looked at the last record and total page count and put the results of the formula into a global variable.

I would then evaluate the variable in the page header, forcing it to be evaluated after the formula execution.

Unfortunately, due to how crystal makes it passes to evaluate formatting and data, the variable doesn't reflect the appropriate value.

Any approaches on how to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.
