Crystal Reports Group Tree

I've published a Crystal Reports 2008 report to SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.1.  When the report is viewed a Group Tree appears on the left-side of the report.  How do I turn that off?  I don't what the user to have that extra step of turning that off.

Thanks

There used to be (pre CR2008) a report option to build the tree.  I don't see it in the options for CR2008

Are you trying to turn the tree off on ALL reports or just  selected reports?

Are you running the reports through InfoView?

I don't see anyway to control that from InfoView or the CMC.

Assuming you are using InfoView.  You can edit the html and jsp files that control the viewer to hide the tree

This link from SAP/Crystal explains the method

I don't see anyway to do that.

Changes to the viewer would be all reports.

I found the solution.

In the Report Options uncheck the Checkbox "Show Preview Panel".

Does that turn if off in the viewer?

It didn't for me.

Interesting.  It changed to not have the tree when I previewed the report but the tree was still there when I ran it through our portal.
