How do you stop the text object (field name) from being dropped into the page header when you drag a field onto the details tab of a crystal report.

    When you open Crystal before starting a report change the options
    Click FILE --> OPTIONS
    On the first tab there is an option to insert field headings - uncheck it

    That will change the settings for all NEW reports
    That may also afffect existing reports but my experience has been that changes to the options don't always affect existing reports when you modify them.

    Hi mimcc

    I use VS2010 to modify my reports. I found it under Crystal Reports - Design - Default Settings and unchecked Insert Detail Field Titles.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction yet again :-)

    and yes it worked for the current report I was working on.

    I wasn't sure if that was one that changed or not.  I always turn it off on a new machine since I seldom like the column titles as headings.
