Crystal Reports – Show Group Headers When Drilling

Question: How do I show all the group headers when drilling down on my report?

Answer: When you choose to HIDE details or certain groups on a Crystal Report, once you navigate to the details or hidden groups, a new tab opens and you no longer see your group headers (see below). Instead, the group headers become the names of the tabs.

In order to show all group headers when drilling down, do the following:

  1. File menu
  2. Report Options
  3. Check the checkbox next to Show All Headers on Drill Down.

The result of turning this feature on, for the same report that is shown above, is shown below:

Now, it is easier for the user to see the complete path of the drill down.
