DataReporter KeepTogether Property

Does the KeepTogether property work in the Datareport designer?  I've tried all combinations with a single group section and the detail records don't stay on the same page.  I am used to using the report writer in Access and the keeptogether property works great.  Is this designer a good tool or I should I consider a third party tool like Crystal Reports?  I have looked at VideoSoft's and it doesn't seem even as good as the designer.  

Thanks.

Use crystal reports !
For a VERY basic report, u can use the DR but there a lot of bugs in it!
For example: you cannot set what printer to use, using the printer dialog: NOT the right settings for each printer is collected by the DR, you cannot change database-texts runtime and so on. With CR you can !

The KeepTogether property works a little bit different (I think): The KeepTogether property only keeps ONE RECORD (of data) together !!!!!

Good luck !
