How to print Group in Crystal Reports if Group has no details

I have a Crystal Report with a Group #1, a Group #2, and a Details section.  Each section points to a related table.  Group #2 is related to Group #1 through a foreign key in the Group #2 table.  The Details section is related to Group #2 through a foreign key in the Details table.

My problem is that not all of my Group #2 records have entries in the Details table but I want to print all of my Group #2 records.

How do I accomplish this?

If the query doesn't return a record for theat group then you really can't provide the header since it doesn't have a record to use.

How do you have the tables joined?
Is there a single recordset for the report or are you using subreports?

You might be able to get around it by removing the details table from the main report and popping it in a subreport.

Hello,
 
Thank you for the advice on creating a subreport.  I decided to document this solution since it is something others have needed to do and I haven't found anything very explicit out there.
