I'm trying to work out if there are any open releases on an order in the header section of a sub-report so that I can determine if I need to suppress the header section or not.

If all of the records in {OrderRel.OpenRelease} is equal to false then I can suppress the header section.  I guess it might be possible to do this by having a global variable incremented on the detail section when I display the records, but I would rather not have to do this.

I thought perhaps I could use the count function in Crystal like this, but my syntax is incorrect somewhere.

Suppress header section: count(IIF([{OrderRel.OpenRelease}]=true, 1, 0))  > 0

I also suppose I could do something like the following, but I've no idea what the syntax would be for this in VB or crystal.

int open = 0;


    if (current record = true)
    if (open > 0){
