I have CR8.5 Dev and need to know how to hide footer b when printing my report.  If you are viewing the report on the screen then you will see the footer (which are 2 links that let you edit the record) but if you print the report this area will not be printed.

Thanks

You can condtionally suppress a section but I don't know how to know if the report is previewed or printing.

According to the crystal folks it cannot be done.  If it shows up on the report it will get printed.

Do you print from the preview or do you print from an application like a VB program?

If you use a program to print directly there are ways using a formula to suppress the fileds and sections.

I have asked CS to close the question and refund my points since I fixed this by calling Crystal and they said it cannot be done.

Agree.  Might leave the question as a PAQ for future reference.
