Crystal Reports: Group Appears on More Than One Page

Using groups in a report is one of the major strengths of Crystal Reports. Creating the right groups and using them effectively is one of the skills you quickly develop.

Use the group header, and display the group name and other fields to identify the group. It can also be useful to move the column headings from the Page Header to the Group Header section.

But what if you have a large group that flows over to a subsequent page? How do you control the report so the headings re-appear on each page as the group continues?

When you create the group, select the option "Repeat Group Header on Each Page." This will cause the group header to appear on each new page. If you have forgotten to set this, you can change an existing group, and set it later when you need to.

Here's another tip on this subject:

Display “Continued” when a group continues onto a new page. It can also be useful to display the word “Continued” when then the group header is not the start of the group. Place this formula in the group header section:

If InRepeatedGroupHeader then “Continued” 

Another thing you want to avoid is creating the same group but with a different name. That's really duplicate content, which means more for people to wade through. We have Crystal Reports analysis tools to help you avoid such a problem or track it down should it occur.
