How do I create a summary sheet of Group values without using a subreport?
I have a report (CR 2011 over MySQL) that churns through a lot of data. It presents information in the Details section and the Group Footer section. I want to include a summary sheet as the first page that only shows the Group Footer data. The only way I've figured out how to accomplish this is by putting the same report as a subreport into the Report Header and then suppressing the details section. I don't like this approach because the same data-intensive report is actually running twice now.
I can't just use the "Hide" feature in the Details Section because when I run the report (from the .NET viewer) none of the details print. To print the details I would have to double-click on each Group Footer which launches a new tab with the details for that particular group only.
I know how to create shared variables so not sure if that can play a part.
Thanks in advance for tips in keeping this to one report with a summary page!
Thanks Jamie...I will give this a try!
