Hour 9. Working with Report Sections > Using Multiple Report Sections

Using Multiple Report Sections

Including multiple sections within each section area of your report provides for an extremely flexible presentation of your report data. Chances are good that you will not need to create more than one occurrence of any of the existing report sections for basic reporting needs. However, Crystal Reports allows you to define multiple report sections within any given section area and to identify section-specific properties for challenging formatting requirements within more complex reports. Certain reporting tasks are performed most efficiently by creating multiple sections within an area.

A Section Area is the space in which one or more of the same Report Section types are defined. For example, it is possible to define two or more Page Header sections in a report to satisfy complex formatting requirements (covered later in this hour), and the area in which these Report Header sections are displayed is referred to as the Section Area.
