A surprising behavior observed when I was experimenting with the Section Expert in Crystal Reports.

 

It doesn’t sounds logical, however if you require printing a blank page after every set of group in Crystal Reports this is the most simplest way that I have come across.

1.       Create a report with a group in it

2.       Now insert a field in the details section

3.       Now the formatting starts,

4.       Click on Report Menu >> Section Expert

5.       Select Details Section >> Paging Tab >> Select Landscape Radio Button >> Click OK

Now

6.       Select Group Header >> Paging Tab >> Select Landscape Radio Button >> Click OK

The default setting for other sections remains default for paging.

 

Note: With such formatting every alternate page will have a different page size. A blank page will appear only if the rest of the sections do not contain any data.

 

Now if you need to print Group Header on a different page and data under it on next page. Example: you want the group name to appear like a page cover and the rest data on other page then this is how you can achieve it.

Click on Report Menu >> Section Expert

Select Details Section >> Paging Tab >> Select Landscape Radio Button >> Click OK

The default setting for other sections remains default for paging.

 

May be there could be some more ways through which all this could be achieved but this was something really easy and different that I came across.
