I have a report with one group. When the group header displaying, I want to suppress the page header (the group header contains same information as page header + some addition information). The group header information must be displayed before the page header information, therefore I cannot combine these. The group footer has set the "Force new Page" property to "After Section".

I have tried to manipulate page header sections visible property in vba, but without success.

If I'm reading it correctly you want hide the Page header and display the Group header for page 1 and for pages 2 onwards, you want to display the Page header and hide the Group header.  If that is correct then try the following code to be place in the report page header's On Format routine.  You will need to change the PageHeaderSection and GroupHeader0 referneces to whatever they are called in your report.
Private Sub PageHeaderSection_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
PageHeaderSection.Visible = (Me.Page > 1)
GroupHeader0.Visible = (Me.Page <= 1)
End Sub

Hi, that is not exactly what I want. The reports can consist of lots of records, in many groups. Ex. page 1-3 is record belonging to group 1, page 4 is group 2, page 5-10 is group 3 etc.  The page header section must be suppressed for every first page of group, i.e in this ex. page 1, page 4 and page 5.
(NB the reports have one group (ex ProductionID))

Okay, well try the following code
'Under the general declarations
Dim strProductionID As String
 
Private Sub GroupHeader0_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
If strProductionID <> Obj Then
    strProductionID = Obj
    GroupHeader0.Visible = True
Else
    GroupHeader0.Visible = False
End If
End Sub
 
Private Sub PageHeaderSection_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
If strProductionID <> Obj Then
    PageHeaderSection.Visible = False
Else
    PageHeaderSection.Visible = True
End If
End Sub

The Obj should have read ProductionID...See revised code below
'Under the general declarations
Dim strProductionID As String
 
Private Sub GroupHeader0_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
If strProductionID <> ProductionID Then
    strProductionID = ProductionID
    GroupHeader0.Visible = True
Else
    GroupHeader0.Visible = False
End If
End Sub
 
Private Sub PageHeaderSection_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
If strProductionID <> ProductionID Then
    PageHeaderSection.Visible = False
Else
    PageHeaderSection.Visible = True
End If
End Sub
