I have a main report with a subreport placed in the Report Footer.

What formula do I use to prevent the main report's Page Header from printing over the subreport in the Report Footer page?

You can suppress the page header when (page number = total page count) so that the page header won't print on the last page.  Is that what you want?

if you know what page the subreport starts then you can use

pagenumber = number on the supress of the page header

Instead of putting the heading on the page header, put it in the report header.  Then, in the main report, Right click on the gray area where it says "Report Footer".  Check the box "New Page Before."  This will put the header on the first page only and it will make sure it starts a new page when it gets to your subreport in the report footer.  Hope this helps!

DavidHoward - Can you clarify what you want?  If you want page header to print on all pages except the last one (with the subreport) then my solution will do that.  If you want header to print *only* on first page then use Ryan's solution.  If you want something different then please elaborate and we'll help you out.

Cheers,

One other suggestion may be to place a separate report header on the subreport so there is a header right above the subreport, as well as a header in the main report...this way, viewers will be able to clearly distinguish the two.

The number of pages in the main report varies and I want the page header to appear on all pages of the main report, so I need a Page Header formula that specifically excludes the Report Footer pages.

What you're going to want to do is to create two report footer sections.  In the second footer section place your subreport.  In the first footer section place this formula:

shared booleanVar PrintingSub := true;

Also in your main report header create this formula:

shared booleanVar PrintingSub := false;

Now you can conditionally suppress your page header with this formula:

(shared booleanVar PrintingSub)


This will begin at false (not suppressing) and will change to true when the first report footer is reached and it will remain at thru throughout the second report footer as well.
