Basic Crystal Report Help- collapsing groups

I am using Crystal for the first time as part of my company's trial period of the software.

I created a very basic report, but am having difficulty figuring out to collapse my groups. I have a group with 3 major categories. I want the first report view to show only the three categories, but then give the user the ability to drill down to the detail for a particular category.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Also, any help docuementation would be great : )

Thanks!

In the left margin, right click on the section called "Details", and click on Hide in the pop up.

Do the same for Group Footer #1.

The sections should now have diagonal lines through them indicating that they are hidden or suppressed.

When you run the report, you should only see Group Header#1 diplaying with data, but if you double click on the Group Name field, it should drill into the section, create another tab, and expose the underlying details.
