If New Group then start on new column or print group header for each column

Hi,

I have a report that uses multi-columns and goes down then across for the data. Is there a way I can set the report to start a new column when the group changes? I was trying to get it to repeat the group header when it wraps to another column but could not find a way. I do have repeat group header selected but since a column is not considered a new page, it doesn't repeat the header. Any fix for these two issues?

Set the New Row or Col property of the group header section to Yes.
This will start a new column for each group.

Also, the controls placed in the group header section should be printed at the top of each column, not just each page. I have just tested it and it seems to work fine.

As far as I know there is no way to do what you want in Crystal.  There is no NEW COLUMN AFTER property and as you have found NEW COLUMNS aren't considered NEW PAGE
