Force Page Header to display new record
Posted on 2009-02-13
n: I am using Crystal Reports Developer 11.5. I have two reports, A and B, that are structured mostly the same. My section layout is structured like this:
RH...PH...Details a thru Details e...PF...RF, and it takes 3 pages to display the PH and all the details for each record, therefore record #2 starts on pg.4, record#3 on pg.7, etc. I have fields in the page header that are record specific, and the problem I am having is that in report B (the problematic one) the PH on pg.4, which should be the start of record#2, still displays record#1 info. It seems the PH doesn't advance to the next record until Details a is repeated, so only on pg. 5 does the PH show record#2. And the cycle repeats, where pg.7 PH stills shows record#2, etc. I have compared all settings within the section expert between both reports and can't find a difference. What's troubling, is that the behaviour of the PH data seems to be dependent on length of the previous PF, and this is unacceptable as the report will be over 3000 pg's and needs to be rock solid in its accuracy.
So what is the 'mechanism' that determines which record is displayed in the PH? I haven't used any grouping in either report. Thanks in advance for any help.
