Great! If I were to do it in the formula editor how would i do it?

Can you explain a little more of what you are trying to achieve? For example what do you want to do once we know if it is supressed or not? What do we do with the value?

I was able to rework the report and use the DrillDownGroupLevel to get what i was looking for.

I have simular question.  In detail section i have 2 fields:
field 1: "-" => to indicate a list
field 2: "text from database field"

So i have something like this:
- abc
- aaa
- aaa
- bbb
- bbb

I use the option "suppress if duplicate, then i get:
- abc
- aaa
-
- bbb
-

My question is now "how can i detect a field is suppressed, so i can get a list like this:
- abc
- aaa
- bbb

The "-" is necessary because when the text is longer then 1 line, the text need to be inlined, so i can clear see at what point a new comment comes out of the database.
