I don't think that is possible.

You can turn the tree off if you want then the user can't see it at all.

Check FILE --> REPORT OPTIONS
One of the options is to CREATE GROUP TREE

So, you want the group tree to only show the top group level and not let you drilldown to see the groups under that?  Just making sure.  In your first message you said "i do not want only the top level group to be seen", which is the opposite of that.

 AFAIK, CR doesn't really give you any control over the group tree, so I don't know of any way to control which group levels it shows.  It's a longshot, but if the second group just happens to be there just for sorting purposes, and you're not using the group header or footer or doing group totals, then you could remove the second group and sort on that field instead.  If you are doing group totals, etc., then it's possible (maybe) that you could remove the group and create your own group totals, etc., but it would be a pain.  It's not something that I'd recommend trying, unless eliminating that group from the group tree was _really_ important to you.

What is the  reason for not wanting the second group to show in the tree?
