Conditionally hide (not supprress) group header in Crystal Reports

Posted on 2011-05-02

Is there a way to conditionally hide a group header (not suppress but hide) based on a select parameter in Crystal Reports?  For example, I have a report in which the user can select to see a summary of all depository accounts or only one account.  If they choose the summary the first screen I want them to see is a list of all divisions with one drill down to the depository accounts.  However, if they choose a specific account I do not want to have any drill down levels at all - they should be able to view the depository account details in the first level (the drill down of the summary report).

Thank you.

    Unfortunately there is no way to conditionally hide.

    There is a DrillDownGroupLevel

    Of course...

    I actually figured out a workaround - I just copied the group header that I used for the drill down and conditionally suppressed that using the drilldowngrouplevel command.

    Thank you!
