Crystal Reports: “Continued from previous page.”

Have you found yourself needing to tell consumers of your Crystal Report that the group at the top of that page was a continuation from the group at the bottom of the previous page? You can do so very easily and here is how…

1. Create a new formula field called “Continued” or whatever you may choose to call it.
2. Paste in the code below into the Formula Workshop:

If InRepeatedGroupHeader Then "Continued from previous page."

3. Test the code (by clicking the X2 button) and click “Save and Close” to return to your report.
4. Drag the new field into the group header.

You can modify the text output found between the quotes to make it display the wording that is most appropriate for your application.

That’s all it takes. It is a simple solution that means the world to some report consumers out there. In my opinion, it shows a higher level of attention to detail. It’s like dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. The little details do matter.

Good luck and stay safe!
