Hide Detail rows in a view

I need a view that 'acts' like a report, counting documents by month, site, manager.  I know how to do that part.  However, senior management does not want to see the expanded rows at all - they just want to see the summary.   I've tried using 'hide detail' but it still expands anyway.

Anybody know how to do this?

1) make sure that the view is set to open compressed.

Check through both the View and fiedls options carefully.

I hope this helps !

Where do I set to open compressed?  I see Collapse all when database is first opened on the second tab of the view properties, but that doesn't keep them compressed, only when first opened..?

It's in the view properties tab that you would see if you opened the view in designer, and then clicked on the properties box to view the view's properties.    It won't appear if you open the view from the regular client, only the Designer client.  It's the second "i" (information) tab.

That option doesn't always REALY close all. Having a @Command( [ViewCollapseAll] ) in the view's PostOpen event may be a better option!
