2705701 - When deleting groups from Crystal Reports with the same Summary field used in other groups all groups are deleted

Symptom

While deleting groups from a particular report with multiple groups and group footer 3 uses the same summary field as group 2 using code, the application deletes all groups using the same summary field.

My initial observation is that if a Group has same summary field more than once, then the problem occurs.

Environment

Crystal Reports Developer for Visual Studio SP 23 and below

Reproducing the Issue

boReportClientDocument.DataDefController.GroupController.Remove(group);

Resolution

This issue has been confirmed by R&D that is is an issue and will be fixed in a future patch
