With Crystal a group won't show if there are no records for it.

You could put the field in each group header and condtionally suppress with

Not IsNull(NextGroupField})

So the field in group1 would be
Not  IsNull({Group2Field})

The field in group2 would be
Not  IsNull({Group3Field})

etc

Thanks but, this only work to supress the group, i can supress the groups,
what i want is know the last visible group, but well i think is done

I use this

in the Group assistant \ group opcions \ select the group and Opcion \ i put a name for the group
and will use a parameter with the last group

if groupname({RPTD_C;1.field1}) = {?LastGroup} then
{RPTD_C;1.total1}

I said nothing about suppressing the group.  Use the formula to suppress the fields themselves.

I guess I don't understand what you want.

What do you mean by last group?

The formulas I provided will do what your examples showed.
