Suppress Details Section if Condition

I have a report that contains line items of an order (displayed in the Group Header Section).

Each line item can have 1 to many "releases" (displayed in the Details section). (release field is {OrderRel.OrderRelNum})

I want to suppress the "releases" unless there is more than one release for a given line item.

How can I achieve this?

I assume this means you want to suppress the detail line, not just the releas number.

Lets say you are grouping on {TableA.FieldX}, then in the Section Expert you use the conditional 'Suppress' button for the detail section with the expression...

Count({OrderRel.OrderRelNum}, {TableA.FieldX})<2

This assumes that the group field FieldX is not a Date field, otherwise the interval also has to be included.

Thanks for the help so far. This is my first time using Crystal and the report I'm building is from a template that already established the grouping.

Can you tell me how to find {TableA.FieldX}?

I've got it now. You were right, although instead of passing the second argument as {TableA.FieldX} I saw that the group was using a formula @NumericOrderLine.

So my formula to suppress the detail section was:

Count({OrderRel.OrderRelNum},{@NumericOrderLine})<2

Thanks again.

It should be noted that the group may not be a {Table.Field} it can also be a formula such as {@formulaName}
