Sub-Reports Crystal Report

Hi All

I have a Crystal Report that has 3 sub-reports in the Page Header.  Each sub-report can have varying amounts of data.  Also, each sub-report has a border and shadow box.  The question is if one of the sub-reports has say 6 lines of data and the other 2 sub-reports have 3 lines of data in each, is there a way to pass some variable between the sub-reports so that even though 2 sub-reports have 3 lines of data the report grows to the same size as the one with 6 lines of data so that the boxes are all the same size?

Any input or help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Instead of using a border and drop shadow, draw an actual box around each subreport object and format the box to use a drop shadow AND "Extend to bottom of section when printing". This will ensure that the box around each subreport has the same height, look and feel, regardless of subreport record count.

Thanks that worked great.  Sometimes you overlook the obvious.

Thanks again.
