Sub-report formatting Question

Post Author: matthewh

CA Forum: General

New(ish) to Crystal, running XI and enjoying it.

I have a simple landscape report showing the last 7 days summary of jobs from a database that records our daily production, and it simply reports 12 fields across the page, and has 2 groups - date and job name (for drill-down detail). It also has 6 stats charts. I have a drill-down set up, but is there any way of NOT reporducing the row of original data across the top of the drill-down page so I can display it portrait as a detailed view? I will be adding a number of calculated fields and detailed charts as well, but it looks a bit naff at the moment. I've tried sub-reports, drills-down etc, but it's not right. Am I missing something?

    You should be able to make a sub report format just about anyway you want, but if you are trying to get Landscape and portrait to mix in one report, I don't think you can do that. If you figure out a way. Please let me know.

    I did wonder about that. Will just have to live with it.

    Can I open a sub-report as a completely seperate report with totally different formatting as opposed to a drill-down section? It's just that having a single row of data 5mm from the top of the page is REALLY irritating and I want to put it into the main body of the sub-rpt.
