Repeating sections in Crystal Report
Posted on 2011-09-15
I'm using Crystal Reports (version 188.8.131.524) and I want a section within the report to repeat at least 4 times irrespective of the data being served to the report.
Scenario: Say, an application form allows users to enter upto 4 previous addresses and the applicant chooses to enter 2 addresses and submits the application. When my internal user views the report (using CR) I want to display all the 4 address fields with only 2 populated from the database (provided by the user). This will allow me to keep the report in sync with the application form (a requirement).
I'm currently using sub-report to display the repetitive fields but this only shows the number of rows available in the database (in this case 2).
I'm not sure if CR allows me to attain this. I've done some intensive research and was of no help. Would appreciate any help provided.
