How to do group header?

P: n/a
Hi...
I think this is a really simple question, but I can't find the answer.
I have a subreport that has columns and column headings. The subreport
can span over several pages. The column headings don't repeat on the
subsequent pages (I have them set up as 'report headings' on the
subreport). I read threads that say to instead make these 'group
headings', and set repeat to Yes. I feel stupid asking this, but I
can't figure out how to create a group heading, even after reading help
and many threads.

I assume I select the current column headings - then - ????????

HELP!
thanks

Right click in some blank part of the report design, and select Grouping and
Sorting.
Add the field you want to group by.....and in the options below, select yes
for Group Header (and footer) if desired.
Check out the other options there for fun and interesting ways of adapting
the grouping levels.

Got it- thanks, Mal.!

(although I must confess, the 'fun and interesting' part escapes
me...maybe I need to play around with it some more???).

thanks...

Oops, spoke too soon. Just got a hit of 'fun and interesting' as the
group level had different ideas than I did! Thanks!
