How are you concatenating your space formulas with the data objects?

this is still not achieving what i am looking for.  If you look at your report, CBA100 is a component of BA100G.  Then CBA100 is an assembly with components under it.  I would want the report to look like this

BA100G
   BELL100
   CBA100
        CAP100
        CB100
        RES100
        SOLDER
        etc.
   FTRUB
   KPA100

I see, the report you're asking for would take time. As I'm busy, I can tell you how to accomplish it, but you must be very good in Crystal Reports.

It's hard for me now to prepare an example. Here's how to do this:

1- The main report shows all of the sub-assemblies LEVEL-0 components.
2- Subreport shows subassemblies' components.

The main report passes the subassembly to the subreport to show its compnents.

Won't it be a problem when you get to the third level?  Because you can't have a subreport within a subreport.

The main report shows all of the subassemblies, even if it's Level-10, the subreport just shows the components. There won't be subreport within subreport.

This is the main idea of it, but you may need some formulas and conditional formating to accomplish the full report.

Report is attached. You need to change the ODBC connection to point to your DB in the Main report AND in the two SubReports.

this is exactly what i'm looking for.  One more thing.  Is it possible to get a running total of all the components cost to appear on the main report?

It depends upon which cost you're talking about.

I don't use Crystal Reports.  Any chance you can print off the code and pop it into a text format so that I can read it and modify it (if necessary) for use in SQL Server?  Thanks!
