Copy a Group Header in Master Report to Report Header in Sub Report

Posted on 2013-10-28
Last Modified: 2013-10-28
Data is from  different databases...I have several groups in the Main Report.. The subreport is residing in the Group Footer of the Main Report...

I need this "copied Group Header" to only show where there is data on the SubReport in its Report Header

Hopefully this makes sense

You can pass all the information used to create the group header to the subreport the show it in the subreport report header or a group header

TO share data with the subreport create 3 formulas

In the main report add a formula to the report header
Shared NumberVar MyValue;

Open in new window

IN the main report group header
Shared NumberVar MyValue;
MyValue := {SomeDatabase Field};

Open in new window

In the subreport where you want to display the value
Shared NumberVar MyValue;

Open in new window

Similarly for all values.  In the main report you can declare and set values to multiple variables

Shared NumberVar MyValue;
Shared DateTimeVar MyDateTime;
MyValue  := {SomeDatabase Field};
MyDateTime := {A DateTIme Field};

Open in new window

What do you mean an entire section?

Does the subreport use the same data source?
