Combining Two Crystal Reports Together

Hello, Experts
I just wondering if there is a way to combine two reports in crystal into one report (like merging) without throwing off dimensions?

As you know subreports do not have page header and page foot, and I think that's the reason when I link two reports together things get messed up.
Can you experts help me though this one?

Not sure what you mean by throwing off dimensions.

Obviously you can insert one report into another as a subreport

Another way to do it is to use both reports as subreports in a new empty master report.

There are tricks that can be used to simulate page headers and footers in a subreport through the use of group headers and footers.

How do you plan to use those reports : scheduler, viewer , your own application .... ?

I see in the tags PDF file - you can run both reports export them to PDFs and join the pdf files in one PDF file

No way to do this from inside the report but can be done using third party viewers and schedulers:

Let me know if you need more details.
