I have an access 2010 report using a group header.  I want the group header to print at the start of the group only, and not on every page of the group, but I can't figure out how to do this?  Many thanks in advance!

In design view double click the group header bar and in the properties set the Repeat Section property to No.

That "kind of" worked, but now the group header is printing on its own page and not "staying" with the start of the detail content.

Then you have set a Force New Page setting somewhere- probably in the same group header.

Or you could have a  Keep Together setting that's being applied inappropriately.
Look at your grouping settings in report design view.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

In addition, ...make sure that the control that displays the group name is actually in the "Group Header".

Depending on how the report was designed, this may have been placed in the page header...

For example if the "Layout" selected in the Report wizard was "Block" then the group Name will be in the Detail section, and it is set to display once per page and not repeat for each record.

The other Layouts (Access 2007) "Stepped" and "Outline", have the group name in the Group Header, this seems to be what you need...

Sample attached that you can examine...

I think I found the problem.  In the detail area, Keep Together was set to Yes.  I will split points awarded amongst the group.  Sorry for me being a bobble-head :)
