Removing duplicates in cr.net

I am trying to display a crystal report using vb.net 2005, crystal reports.net. The data files that I use to display the data using a SELECT are .xml files. The problem is that I see duplicate rows in the report, but not in my query or in my xml files (I already have a distinct clause). Is there any way that I can suppress duplicates in crystal report.net? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Where are you putting the data?

What is the select?

Are you putting all the select fields on the report?

Crystal doesn't add data so there is either something wrong with the select statement or the way you are displaying the data.

For instance if you have records like
aaa   bbb   ccc   ddd   eee
aaa   bbb   ccc   ddd   fff

Crystal will see them as different but if don't display the eee & fff field they will look the same on the report.

My SELECT is something like this  
select distinct PremiumID, Certificate_Number, Date_Transfered, UserID_Transfered..........

My records get displayed in this fashion
a      b       c        e       f        g
1      2       3        4       5       6
h       i        j         k        l        m

Single table?

What sections and what is in the section?

Are you using a subreport?

Yes, it's from a single table. no joins. The other sections being header, a group based on PremiumID, Page Footer and report footer The data is displayed in the details section. No sub-reports. Thanks

It has something to do with the binding of data to the report during run-time. My datasource returns a rowcount of 50. But, 100 rows get displayed on the report.

        'Set the dataset to be the report's data source.
       Crystal_Report_net.SetDataSource(ds)
        Crystal_Report_net.SetParameterValue("Site", gstrSite.ToString())

It looks like the data set is being saved or read twice.

I don't use you method of getting data to a report but the code looks ok.
