Crystal Reports - Subreport starts on a new page

Posted on 2011-10-04

I have a report (CRXI) that has a sub report.

This sub report insists on displaying itself on a new page - even though there is plenty of room on the previous page.

Any ideas why?

    The reason is that the header is displayed from the parent report on the child on the first page.  Remove keep together from the sections.

    Also on the child report make sure the option in sections to start on new page is disabled.

    Do you have KEEP TOGETHER set for the section the subreport is in or for the subreport itself?

    Do you have NEW PAGE AFTER set for the section before the subreport or NEW PAGE BEFORE for the subreport or the section it is in?

    The page header of the main report is used as the page header but it is not necessarily displayed on the first page of the subreport.
