Crystal Reports



Clients needs a print layout based on quotations. The existing layouts for quotations (PLD) are quite complex and everytime the customer is upgraded to a new PL some of the layouts stop functioning and has to be fixed.

I tried converting the PLD's to Crystal with the Crystal converter but possibly due to the complexity the conversion fails so I will have to redesign them in Crystal. I'm a novice in Crystal so I need some advice please.

Some of the quotations have a cover letter that prints under certain conditions and also a 2 page 'Purchase Considerations' containing warranty info etc which only prints under certain conditions for certain customers and prints after the repetitive area and before the final page which would then contain information which you will normally have in the Page footer or end of report.

My question is - how best to handle 'Purchase Considerations' part. Should it be a sub-report or what would be the easiest way to handle it?
