Text Box Duplication Crystal Reports

Hi

I have a sub-report that has one data field in a grouping.  I need to put a text box in the group next to the data field but the text field duplicates for each record.  Is there a way for the text box to only print once.  

For Example Currently I get:

Comments: abcd
Comments: EFG
Comments: HIJ
I would like:

Comments: abcd
                   EFG
                   HIJ

Suppress Duplicates does not work.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Are you putting this inthe details?

Is ther anything in the group header?
If not put your comment in the group header
Right click the group header in the left margin
Click SECTION EXPERT
Click UNDERLAY FOLLOWING SECTION

If mlmcc has the basic situation correct, but there are other fields in the group header, you can just add another group header section and use that instead (as mlmcc described).

This is how the sub-report is set-up:  

Group Header I placed the Text Box "Comments"
and in the Group Footer I put the Data Field
I went to Section Expert for Group header and clicked on Underlay but  the report is is still displaying the Text Box Comments for every comment.

It displays like:

Comments
The comment Data field
Comments
The comment Data field
Comments
The comment Data field

What I would like to happen is:
Comments:  Comment Data field
                    Comment Data field
                    Comment Data field

Is this possible?

The data field has to be in the details section.

You must have several values for that group.

Is there a way to get it to pint the word Comments: once?

Each line is for a different group?

Do you have a report header?


You could suppress the group header for RecordNumber > 1
