I am creating a report with two subreports. The main report will be unbound and will only serve as a container for two unrelated reports. Each subreport can be multiple pages and needs to have the page header repeat for each page. Putting the info in the Page Header works great as a standalone report but fails as a subreport. I created a Group based on the expression “=1” and this achieves my goal of repeating the header info for each page.
My problem is that when I set “Repeat Section” to “Yes” on the Group, it duplicates the title information on the first page. Each subsequent page has it only one time at the top of the page. Actually, one report works properly and the other has this duplication. It seems that if the report is bound to a record source then it works properly but an unbound report has the duplication. You can replicate the problem with a new blank report that is unbound, creating a group and setting the group “Repeat Section” to “Yes”. Such as:
Create a blank report.
Add a Group.
Change the “Repeat Section” of the Group Header to “Yes”
When you Print or Print Preview the report, it displays the group title twice. Such as:
Why is the Group Header duplicating on the first page? Is there a way to fix it besides setting a Record Source on the report?
Thanks for your help.
