Overlapping objects



I need to design a layout where I have two objects overlapped. One object is a text object and the other is a sub-report. The sub-report is an embedded one but I have disabled the u201CCan growu201D option due to a requirement I have. So when the report is previewed one canu2019t see there is a sub-report unless they move the mouse over it. For this I need to add a text object so that is on top of the sub-report so that when they move the mouse on top of the text object they will know there is a sub-report there. I have designed the report so that both the text object and the sub-report has same x and y coordinates, but then previewing it will not get overlapped. It will first print the text box and then the sub-report right after that. (E.g. Test Text [sub-report] - The Y coordinates are correct but the x coordinates are different). How can I print the text on top of the sub-report? Iu2019m using Crystal Report Designer XI R2 for this.

Thank you in advance,
