I've got a report set up in Access 2007. It is a list of charges grouped by Projects. I have a Group Header with a summary of the Charges for that Particular Group. Then in the Details I have the listing of Charges. I would like to have a Header for the Details without having the same header on the Group Header.

So is there a way to not have the Page Header on a Group Header? I know you can exclude it from the Report Header.

Or is there a way to have a page header on the Details only.?

Yes. I've got my Details and I'd like to have Labels for those Columns w/o having a label for each line.

Ok I figured it out by:

Creating a Seperating Grouping by Project Number and Created a Header for that Grouping after the Project Summary Page. The clicked on "Yes" on the Repeat Section Property in the 2nd Project Number Grouping Header. This Header has the Title for the Detail that follows.

The detail section will repeat for each record, so if you put a header in the detail section, it would repeat to.
I can visualize fixes and workarounds for this, but it could get messy.

My next question would be, why can't the headings stay in the group header?
I can't visualize how your request would make the report appear any different?
(Perhaps you have a unique design here?)

Can you simply post a screenshot of your report in Print Preview and mark it up to indicate what is wrong with the current layout.
And also indicate how these "New" headers would/should appear.
Also post a screenshot of the report in design view.

A sample file would also be helpful:
Sample database notes:
1. Back up your database(s).
2. Combine the front and back ends into one database file.
3. Remove any startup options, unless they are relevant to the issue.
4. Delete any objects that do not relate directly to the issue.
5. Remove any references to any "linked" files (files outside of the database, Images, OLE Files, ...etc)
6. Remove any references to any third party Active-x Controls (unless they are relevant to the issue)
7. Remove, obfuscate, encrypt, or otherwise disguise, any sensitive data.
8. Compile the code. (From the database window, click: Debug-->Compile)
9. Run the compact/Repair utility.
10. Remove any Passwords and/or security.
11. Post explicit steps to replicate the issue.
12. Test the database before posting.

In other words, ...post a database that we can easily open and immediately see the issue.


Notes:
The headings are in different report locations based on the layout you selected in the Report Wizard.
For example, with a grouped report:
Stepped or Block Layout, ...the headers are in the page header.
With the outline layout, they are in the group header.
