1232355 - SUPPRESS FIELDS IN HIERACHICAL REPORT

Symptom

The final goal is to eliminate repeating upper level fields in hierarchy report. For example: report has the following records:

LEVEL1

LEVEL1 

   LEVEL2

LEVEL1

  LEVEL2

      LEVEL3A

LEVEL1

   LEVEL2

       LEVEL3 B…

The goal is to get the following records

LEVEL1

  LEVEL2

     LEVEL3A

     LEVEL3B

 

Environment:

 

Crystal Reports 10,

Crystal Reports XI,

Crystal Reports 2008 

 

 

Resolution

There is a function in Crystal Reports to define hierarchy level: HierarchyLevel

And we can remember the upper level value within an array with the following formula:

//FORMULA1

stringvar array SupLevel;

redim preserve SupLevel [50];

if suplevel[HierarchyLevel(GroupingLevel({getResultSet.MGR_PERSONNEL_ID}))]<> {getResultSet.SUP_LAST_NAME} then

suplevel[HierarchyLevel(GroupingLevel({getResultSet.MGR_PERSONNEL_ID}))]:={getResultSet.SUP_LAST_NAME};

 

then suppress the hierarchy field using the following suppression formula:

FORMULA2

stringvar array SupLevel;

redim preserve suplevel[50];

HierarchyLevel(GroupingLevel({getResultSet.MGR_PERSONNEL_ID}))> 2 OR

suplevel[HierarchyLevel(GroupingLevel({getResultSet.MGR_PERSONNEL_ID}))]= {getResultSet.SUP_LAST_NAME}
