crystal-reports Getting started with crystal-reports Grouping records


Groups can be added and nested within a report to organize the data in a hierarchy of sorted lists. Outer groups supersede any groups within. This directly affects which records are affected by the Previous keyword.

  1. Select Insert, Group from the menu bar.
  2. Select the field to group the data by from the top drop-down list.
  3. Select the sort direction from the second drop-down list.
  4. Mark the Customize Group Name Field (only available in Crystal Reports 8.5) checkbox to show a different value in the group header.
  5. Click OK.
