Keep section header from starting at an inconvenient spot

Keep section header from starting at an inconvenient spot

(OP)
A report that is laid out in 4 columns on an 8 1/2 x 11 page. Sorted Alphabetically.
Running vertically and then horizontally. The columns include names, addresses and phone numbers.

A section header takes the first letter of the last name. Thus...
  A 
Abraham
Adams
Anderson
etc.

  B 
Barnes
Bernier
Bowman
etc.

Trouble is sometimes the section header will appear all alone at the bottom of a column...or in one case, at the very bottom of the 4th column on a page.

I don't want to have a new column "after a section" because you could have only one or two names in a column, and then a whole bunch of blank space running down the page.

Also, I don't want to force a new page after a section.

Is there something I can do to make sure that the section header isn't orphaned?

Thanks.

RE: Keep section header from starting at an inconvenient spot

Isn't there a proeperty in the grouping like "Keep Together with First..."?

Ah, I found that now.

"Keep header and first record together on one page."

Don't know why I missed that before. Rushing to get something done for the printers, I guess.

Thanks!
