It depends on what you mean and the data you are trying to use.

Can you be a little more specific?

Crystal has page headers and footers, can have groups with headers and footers, it can have multiple detail sections.

Remember though that the detail section runs completely for each record.

What are you trying to do?

I am trying to create a phone list with columns and separate sections on one page.  The top section is personnel numbers, the middle section is other locations and there numbers and fax numbers, the bottom section has house phones/numbers.

When I try multiple details it stacks the details so every other line is detail a, detail b.  I need them to be separate.

I think you may have to use subreports for each section.  In that way you will get all the personnel numbers then you can show the next set and finally the last.
