grouping 2 detail sections in Crystal reports

Posted on 2006-04-03

I need to know how to list all the possible subsets in detail section 2 that match the fields in detail section 1.


Detail section 1:

Field1: Blue     Field2:  Red
Field3: Oak     Field4:  Door

Detail section 2:
Field 5          Field 6           Field 7            Field 8

If I have multiple records that have the same same values for Field1, Field 2, Field 3, Field 4, I want each of them to show in detail section 2.  However, currently Detail section 1 is being repeated for each record.

What do I need to do to in order to only have the one detail section1 displayed with all the matching records printing in Detail section 2?
