    There is no defined limit to the size of a report. Many reports run to thousands of pages.

    I'm not quite sure what your reference to 'maximum of details sections' is meant to be asking.
    Are you simply referring to the number of records in the report? Or are you referring to subdividing your 'main' detail section into multiple detail sections?

    Are you doing any conditional suppression of report sections based on data values?

    I assume you mean Deatils A, Details B,... Details AA  etc

    I have not run into a limit.  I built a report to test it and got to I think 60+.  The last one was BF.  At that point I quit.

    I have never read anything that indicates there is a limit.

    How many do you need?
