Crystal reports 2011 enterpise - subreport area

Hi All

I have a simple report with a subreport in it.

The report is based on headers lines and the subreport brings the detailed lines.

The subreprort area height can grow according to the number of detailed lines.

My issue is that I want to add another information field from the header directly under the subreport area and when the subreport grows, it should push that information down.

Now it overlaps.

Any ideas will be appreciated

    Hi Shlomi,

    The most important thing that you should be aware of is - any object that 'Can Grow' vertically Will overlap objects that are placed directly below it in the same section.

    So, if you place a Subreport in a section and if that Subreport grows in length, any object that is placed directly below it WILL NOT BE PUSHED DOWN!

    Instead, the object will start printing from where exactly it is placed on the report and the Subreport will keep growing eventually Overlapping that object.

    Separate the objects into different sections; that is the only way around this.

    For eg: If the Subreport is placed in the Report Header, create multiple Report Header Sections a and b. Place the Subreport in the Report Header a section and the other object in the Report Header b section.

    Hope this helps!
