Move a section from Details to GroupFooter
Posted on 2012-09-04
Using Crystal Reports built into Visual Studio 2008, I have a report with a number of detail sections. I'm restructuring the report, adding a second level of grouping, and many of the detail sections belong at the first grouping level, not the second. Therefore, I think I'm going to need to convert them to GroupHeader or GroupFooter sections. I have nearly thirty sections, many of which have special section settings (conditional suppression, etc.). It's going to be really tedious and prone to error to have to drag all the fields and re-enter all the section settings.
Is there any way to directly change a Detail section to a GroupFooter or GroupHeader (or, for that matter, change GroupHeader to GroupFooter or vice versa)? Or do I have to move everything manually?
