To get the desired result, the trick here is to use a higher level Header section to display the headings and a lower level Footer section to display the actual values. For example, placing the headings related to the Store in the Report Header and placing its corresponding values in the Group 1 Footer will generate a report which will display the Store heading only once but will repeat the corresponding values depending on the number of records in the database.

We will also have to move the Book details and Order details to the lower sections and format it in such a way that it can be viewed only by drilling down to it.

Modify the existing layout as shown below :

Your Crystal Report Designer screen should now look similar to the image shown below. Incase, your report contains an extra Group 1 Header called 'Group Header #1 b', you could leave it alone as it would not make any difference to the final report.

The following tips explains how-to achieve certain tasks while converting from the old layout to the new layout.
