How Do I Issue a Page Break When a Group Item Changes?

All I want to do is issue a pagebreak when a group item changes. I cannot find anything in the book under pagebreak in the index. Surely people must want to do this sometime?

I'm a newbie to Crystal Reports. I have everything working in my current report except the pagebreak. Can somebody help me out?

Thanks a bunch.

David

    Hi David,

    As I understand you would like to have a page break/new page whenever the group changes.

    Following are the steps:

    - Click on report Menu-Select Expert

    - Click on the Group Header #1.

    - From the right hand side select the option New Page Before

    This will give you a page break when ever the Group changes.

    I hope this helps you.

    Regards,

    Prashant

    Hi David,

    To insert the Page break on a Group changes:

    Go to u2018Reportu2019 Menu option >> Section Expertu2026 >> Select 'New Page After' for Group Footer Section.

    More Information:

    1) New Page After:-

    When this check box is selected, the program inserts a page break after it prints the section.

    u2022 The Page Header and Page Footer appear on each page.

    u2022 Use New Page After in the Group footer section to print each group on a separate page.

    2) New Page Before:

    New Page Before is an available format property for Group (header and footer) and Details sections. When you select this option, the program inserts a page break before it prints the section. The page break thus comes before:

    u2022 The group (if using the option with a Group footer section).

    u2022 Each report record (if using the option with a Details section).

    The Page Header and Page Footer appear on each page. If you have a subtotal or summary field in a Group Footer section, you can use the New Page Before option to put these values on pages following the value being totaled.

    Regards,
