Hi All,

I need a report of items grouped by item category like below. I use Crystal Report 7.

Category A
  1. Item1
  2. Item2
  3. Item 3

Category B
  1. Item4
  2. Item5


I get below result:
Category A
  1. Item1
  2. Item2
  3. Item 3

Category B
  4. Item4
  5. Item5

The problem is...

Item serial number is not reset for each group. You can see Category B starts with item serial number 4.  How to reset Record Number on change of group?

Thank You

I am supposed not to change the stored procedure.  But I have to prepare the report in the format I explained.

I may use formula in crystal report.

You could use a running total have the summary as a count of item, evaluate fro each record and reset on change of category group
