Group Records "Consolidation"

Hi! I am using Crystal Reports (11.5) to produce a file directly from my customer database. My customers have up to six policies that I need to display on the group record. The records display individually on the detail line, however, I need the group record to include all the policies. I have tried the "counter" approach, however, I can't seem to get the fields store and print on the group record.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you.

    Not sure I understand, but look for Group Name Fields, you can drag these into one of the Group Headers / Footers

    and it will display the Group name hth

      Odd, is the formula in the details section?

      also, using the format with multiple columns, can cause issues if you field lengths are not constant.

      You can code around that, but it will be some work. You would need to build several formulas, each one to

      determine if the "Policy" is null, or empty, then on that condition, return a field of known length.

      ie... if the field is empty

      if () = " " then " " else

      I have 10 spaces between the " " in the example, this should help you get a constant length on your line.
