I have created a group on the crystal report. Code works with one group on the report.

        objRptDoc.DataDefinition.Groups.Item(0).ConditionField = objRptDoc.Database.Tables(0).Fields(rblGroupBy.SelectedValue)
   
Now I added another group on the report and need to dynamically assign the field to the second group. Below code doesnt work with the 2nd group. It just groups by the fields that I assigned during the design time.

objRptDoc.DataDefinition.Groups.Item(1).ConditionField = objRptDoc.Database.Tables(0).Fields(rblSubGroupBy.SelectedValue)    

I'm I missing something.
Appreciate your help!!

Are you sure you are using the new report from the application?

I don't know anything about running reports from code, but if you can't get the group change to work that way, maybe you could change the report to group on a formula that's controlled by a parameter, and pass different values to the parameter.  Something like this:

// Group by name or city, depending on ?param
if {?param} = "Name" then
  {name field}
else
  {city field}

You indicated this works if there is one group on the report and then yu added a second group.

If you have a standalone report and saved it, the code may still be using the version with 1 parameter rather than the updated version.If you designed this in the VS IDE then you most likely are using the correct version of the  report.
