Start by posting your question in the Crystal corner icon_wink.gif

But if they have the same group header then aren't they the same group??

From my memory (but is has been a while since i used cr) you can (mis)use the visibilty setting.
Try creating a formula there like an if [previous header]=[current header] then [true] else [false].
Maybe you need to create variables that get filled with the info from previous groups titles.

Hello mallikarjun1017,

easy way to do that
Go to design.
Right click on group name/label to which you want to suppress
Select option 'Format Field' from Popup menu
Select 'Common' tab
Check option 'Suppress if Duplicates'
at last press 'Ok'

Hi Thanks for the suggestions.

I followed the steps you told and i could not find suppress if Duplicated.

I have to suppress the group header if it is repeating in a page. If in a page two groups have different groupheaders are there they should not be suppressed.

I am using CR2008.

thanks

Hi,

Go to the section expert. There is an option to suppress the header based on a formula. Note: If the formula evaluates to true the header is suppressed!. You need to find a formula that evaluates to true if you have a "second header"

Hello mallikarjun1017,
Do you want to display each group on separate page?
Or
Do you want one page with only with one group?
