Basic Crystal Report Help- collapsing groups

I am using Crystal for the first time as part of my company's trial period of the software.

I created a very basic report, but am having difficulty figuring out to collapse my groups. I have a group with 3 major categories. I want the first report view to show only the three categories, but then give the user the ability to drill down to the detail for a particular category.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Also, any help docuementation would be great : )

Thanks!

Kathryn

    In the left margin, right click on the section called "Details", and click on Hide in the pop up.

    Do the same for Group Footer #1.

    The sections should now have diagonal lines through them indicating that they are hidden or suppressed.

    When you run the report, you should only see Group Header#1 diplaying with data, but if you double click on the Group Name field, it should drill into the section, create another tab, and expose the underlying details.

    Thank you Brian for your quick response!

    How do I make the Key Figures appear at the summary level?
