Hi,

You could do it provided you know that which currencies you want to display.

Like for your field suppose you are getting USD, CHF
in detail field.
Write a formula which will show you only USD.

formula:  {x.currency}
now on suppress part of the section you write
x.currency = CHF
This will suppress all CHF currencies and you will get rows with USD currencies only

Hope this will solve your problem

Are you retrieving all fields but not displaying them on the report, or do you select different fields and use a single report to print them?

Are you using a front end program to call your reports (ie. a VB program)?

I use ASP to call my report. for example, Client A(1000) has a record with USD, Client B(1001) has a record with JPY, and Client C(1002) with JPY and CHF, then I need to display ClientName  USD  JPY  CHF at the page header. If Client A(1000) has another currency for example, EUR, this currency should display in the report also. My SQL is like "SELECT DISTINCT Currency FROM Trade WHERE Client LIKE '100%'". How can I disply the report header dynamically?

Sorry for the questions, but I'm still not totally clear on what you are trying to accomplish.

When the report prints will there be more than one client included in the report, meaning that the header will vary for each client?   Will there be a varying number of currency columns for each client?

One approach might be to include the currency designator (USD, JPY) in the recordset you are reporting from along with the other data.  In the group header, use the fields holding the currency designators as your group header and then the detail section has the particulars for the client.

If I've missed the mark, let me know.

I think that's the longest I've ever waited for a reply.

Anyway, you want to use subreports to accomplish what you are trying to do.  Embed Page 1 as sub-report #1 and Page 2 as subreport #2 in a main report, or setup the Page 1 section as your main report and embed the Page 2 part as a sub report in a new section.  Set the section format to force a new page at the end.

But how can I print III~PPP at the second page, and the CcyCode is dynamic?

e.g:
---------------------------------------------------------
subreport:CcyName
---------------------------------------------------------
subreport:ValueForEachCcy
---------------------------------------------------------

if I have 2 subreport(CcyName and ValueForEachCcy) in a main report, how can I display the second set of ccy for example, I can display 10 Ccy in 1 pg, after that I have to display Ccy11~Ccy20 in 2nd page, how to do it? Another problem is, Ccy01~Ccy10 may need to display in 2 pages or more. If i can display 20 row in 1 page,but I have 35 rows and I have 16 Ccy, in page 1, it will show 20 rows for Ccy01~Ccy10. Second page, 20 rows for Ccy11~Ccy20, Page 3, it will show 15 rows for Ccy01~Ccy10 and in page 4 is 15 rows for Ccy11~Ccy20. U get wat I mean? It's really very complicated, and I try to solve it but I can't then continue on other things first. That's y until now I still ask this question. Hope can get a solution from u.
