I am using Visual Studio 2005 Crystal Reports.
I have a report with information in Page HeaderSection1, GroupHeaderSection1, DetailSection1 and PageFooterSection1.
There is a Grid in the DetailSection1 that I can't get sized right. I have room for the all the rows in the Grid but the lower rows print on the next page.
One thing I noticed is that I can't change the height in the PageFooterSection.

Just looking at the Report I have at least 2 inchs of room between the lowest Grid row and the PageFooter info.

WHat do you have in the footer?

You should be able to change the size of the footer in design.

Check the page margins.

mimcc,
1. In the footer I have 2 long horizontal Boxes with 5 Boxes inside. Also some Text.
2. I can increase the height of the PageFooter which makes the problem worse.
3. I can't decrease the height that is set at 3034. This is also the minimum height that is grayed out.
4. If I could figure out how to change the minimum height, I think my problem would be solved.
5. All the page margins are set at default 0.17

If you delete the boxes can you make it smaller?

I can shrink the page footer to 0 height in CR8 and XI.  I don't have VS.Net

When you say greyed out is it suppressed?

mimcc,
I tryed deleting the boxes - no difference.
When I say greyed out, I mean the minimum height setting of 3034 is greyed out.
I have another Crystal Report that is working fine. It has the minimum height setting greyed out also.

Must be specific to the .Net version.

Do you need anything in the footer?  What if you suppress it?

mimcc,
I got it figured out finally. I had to move the boxes up in the PageFooter, that released the minimum height restriction so I could reset the height to a lower number.
The total Grid shows now.

Thank you for your help.

That was the idea behind deleting them.

mimcc,
I tried it again and you are so right. I had deleted the Boxes but I neglected to delete the page number also.
That completely removed the mimimum height restrictions.

Thanks again,

Dave
