hi, i have a report in the normal format

HEADER

DETAILS e.g.
DETAIL 1
DETAIL 2
DETAIL 3
DETAIL 4

REPORT FOOTER
PAGE FOOTER
                                                   TOTAL 1
                                                   TOTAL 2
                                                   TOTAL 3

but when its printed , it comes out like this:
DETAIL1                                       DETAIL4
DETAIL2                                       DETAIL5
----------------------------------------------- (should stop here)
DETAIL3                                                (this one should go to top)
                                                  TOTAL 1
                                                  TOTAL 2
                                                  TOTAL 3

i want crystal reports to know not to go past a certain point in the details section, thus
dont make DETAIL3 at the current position, go to detail 4's position.
i tried to go to format section - details - layout, but for some reason i cant set the height of details section
please help! thanks!

The easiest way to fix this is to increase the siez of the Page Footer.
Crystal will reserve that amount of space at the bottom of each page and won't let the Details section infringe upon that.
Just drag the bottom border of the page footer down so that increases the height of the PF.
It will be trial and error to get it working but it wil work nonetheless.

You can set the height by simply dragging the line in the crystal designer instead of trying to do it in the layout tab.  Size the section as needed in the designer and use the layout tab for the width only: http://support.businessobjects.com/library/kbase/articles/c2006953.asp
