Hi EE,

Can you help me with grouping on a report, please?

Just need a separator line when student's id changes.

2 rows can appear for a student:

MA - mailing address row
PR  - permanent address row

below is a test mdb

Please can you explain the steps as to how you grouped by student....

tx for your help, sandra

The problem is with your group, sort, and total settings.  Right now you have the ID as fifth on your list of groups/sorts, move it first and I believe you get what you want.  Or at a minimum move the group on ID above the address_type.


Hi Master Jojo,

moving the id up to the first field solved the problem

in fact, i now moved the name info into the id header, so that only the address information
duplicates in the detail area...

tx again, s
Glad I could help.
