Crystal reports question

I have just posted a variation of this question on the Crystal Reports
board, but most times I do not get a reponse.

I have a report in which I asked about yesterday and after working all day
on this, I actually have it looking pretty good. It is displaying header
information and listing the data that I want it to in various sub reports.

The problem that I am having is that the sum of the rows in the subreports,
it is printing one form for each and I really only need this printed once.
Like if subreport #1 shows 2 rows and then subreport #4 shows 10 rows, I get
12 pages.

I understand that it is printing a form for each record that is selected,
but I am wonder how to just have it do one.

Thanks for any help.

Do you have "Start New Page After" checked in one or more of your report
footers?

I'm a little unclear on what's happening.
So you have a main report and you have a subreport which should only come
out once and give some sort of global totals?.

The obvious cause could be if you stuck the subreport in the detail band
rather than some sort of sort or report footer.
Sorry if that's too obvious.

Andy,

Thanks for the explaination and I think that is the problem. Obviously I am
really new to Crystal Reports. I am in the process right now of moveing
everything to the group footer and that is what seems to have been the
problem.
