8.5: On export to Word, "Repeat Group Header On Each Page"  doesn't work (Header displays on pg 1 only)

In Crystal 8.5, When I use the "Repeat Group Header On Each Page" option, allthough the headers appear correctly, when i export to Word, (2003) they dissapear.  This puzzles me as the first header on the first page does export correctly. Does anyone have any advice on this?

Unfortunately, the end user is dead set against RTF so I have to do the best I can with exporting to Word.

Thanks

I suspect that is the way Word exportworks.

IN CR9 Crystal dropped the Word document format option and uses RTF to export to Word.  If the user is planning to move from CR8.5 they will have to accept RTF.

Thanks

Coincidentally,  The user is switching to Crystall 11 in about 4 months. When I looked at  11's features description, I noticed that the RTF export function was described as "editable" RTF so maybe it exports RTF in a more editable state than does 8.5. (That is the user's complaint about 8.5 RTF; a certain amont of annotation on the reports are required and the RTF export makes that difficult.)
