"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I don't believe there is.  The main report doesn't know about the groups in the subreport.

Why do you want it?  Is to make it faster to move around the report?

Yes, to make it easier to find the group you want to see.

If you can deliver the result as a PDF, there's a way to generate bookmarks for navigation inside the subreport.

Good; at least one of the 3rd-party Crystal Reports desktop schedulers listed at http://kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html allows you to use Crystal formulas acting as hidden tags to generate bookmarks for the PDF exports. Since the formulas can be placed inside subreport sections, the navigation can easily include any subreport hierarchy.
The same logic can also be used to generate a Table of Contents in the final PDF.
