I want to show the grid for ID, Name,DOB as a grid on top of the report, followed by a group on the name, which will display the details of the person, which will have all the details, including another grid for different addresses a person is involded with.

Please advise as to how to do this.

Crystal doesn't have a grid control so you will have to simulate it with lines, boxes or borders.

Try this
Group on the Name
Put the ID, Name and DOB in the group header
Set the widths and turn on the borders.
Place so they touch or even the borders overlap.

In the details put the other nformation
Again align and turn the borders on

Borders are a FORMAT option.

Hi,
   When i put the ID, Name and DOB in the group header, it is getting me only the first name in the list; not all of them.

There should be several groups

Are you grouping on the NAME field?

I don't see the issue.  It seems you have several people in the group.

yes, several people. So, i want the list of all people, thier DOB, gender etc, on top, under the header "Other members of Household". Then a detail section should show their details under the header "Referral Participants of the household".

Wonderful! Do we have any control over the borders to make it look like a table?

You can add borders to the fields and set the cross tab to not show the margins.
