1196901 - Crystal Reports is unable to find on-demand subreport captions


An on-demand subreport has a caption using a database field. The main report contains a group based on that same field. The subreport is located in the Group Header of that group. When using Edit > Find to search for the contents of the caption in Crystal Reports, it is not found.


Crystal Reports does not find the caption value, as it is actually part of the subreport and not the main report.


To work around this behavior perform the following steps:
  1. Insert the Group Name field into the group header, overlaying the caption for the subreport.
  2. Move the subreport to the back.
  3. Move the Group Name to the front by clicking Format Field > Move. This will enable the user to find the value and click on the value to open the on-demand subreport.
