Crystal report within visual studio, programmically connecting to database and opening report.  Lets say it is a generic report showing all vehicle manufactureres and the detail section shows all the different models.  If the user selects a specific manufacturer from the tree on the left, is there any way to keep the tree with all the manufacturer choices, but show only the details for that selection.  Right now, if I select a manufacturer, it will move within the report to where those records are, but the rest of the information remains evident.  Will crystal allow that to be manipulated?  I thought of sub reports, or hiding or suppressing but hope someone would have some clear concise direction to give me.  Is this just an issue of how I format vs, being able to programmically set how the info displays?
