    Hi,

    - you keep the hierarchy grouping in place but set the indention to 0

    - you then go to the group header from your hierarchical group, right click, Size and position

    - open the formula and you can now use the 2 formulas to influence the X-position : hierarchylevel and the hierarchylevel takes a grouplevel as input (sorry don#t have CR in front of me right now)

    you then receive as a result the hierarchy level and can multiply it with example 150 (pixels)

      Hi Ingo,

      I'm working on the same issue and have the same indention problem.

      But I fail to put in a correct formular for "size and position".

      Can you give me an example?

      (maybe now you have CR infront of you)

      Regards,

      Sebastian

    You can create 2 Detail sections and do a conditional print suppression on them.

    One section will only print for the the first item in the group:

    = Previous(Groupfield}) The other section prints for subsequent items: <> Previous()

      I create two Detail Section D1 and D2, then put the Group Filed (Level) on First D1 section and Other Field(Title ) On Second D2 section.

      Add the above condition , but it does not display anything in second detail section
