Repeating page headers in a sub-report positioned in the main Report Header.

I have a solution to an issue that has been around for many years in Crystal Reports. However, if anyone has a simple solution to this problem please share it with me. If not, I have a way to do it.

Here is the issue:

When a subreport is placed in the Report Footer section we are able to utilize the Page Header section/s of the main report without any problems. However, if a subreport that may produce multiple pages needs to be placed in the Report Header of the main report, how will one create the page header of the sub-report to repeat until it's completion? As we all know once a sub-report is embedded into the main report, the page headers of the sub-report are no longer available.

    Hi Tony,

    I do not have any anything to offer other than what you've heard or what you already have in implemented.

    Anyway, just for the record - you would need to create a formula similar to this in the Subreport:

    whilereadingrecords;

    ""

    Then use this formula to create a new group and check the 'Repeat Group Header on each page' under Group Options.

    I hope this is how you're getting around this - well there isn't any other way really.
