Given the following report layout

Report Header
Page Header
Group Header #1
- Subreport
- Field1
- Field2
Details
- Field3, Field4, Field5 Etc.
Group Footer
Report Footer
PageFooter

The subreport is set to "Can Grow".  When it does grow it grows over fields1 and 2.  In MS Access the sub report would have pushed Field1 and Field2 down.  Is there anyway to do this in Crystal Reports?

Simply create a second Group Header #1 and place the Subreport in this header by itself.  To do so, right-click the Group Header section and select Insert Section below.
