need group header on each page

need group header on each page

need group header on each page

(OP)
I have a report - Analysis Results - that has 3 groups
Report header
Page header = Data_Point Norm_Type Test_Op_No
gh1 - TEST_OP_NO xxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxxx (these are all Attributes)
gh2- DATA_POINT (suppressed)
gh3- RESULT_NO = Result_No Outer_Max Outer_Min
detail xxxx xxxx xxxx (these are NOT Attributes)
xxxx xxxx xxxxx


In gh3 (header) I have a formula, grpcnt:
WhilePrintingRecords;
NumberVar GrpCnt;
IF {ANALYSIS_RESULTS.CONTROL_CHART_TYPE_DB} = 'ATTRIBUTE' then GrpCnt :=1
ELSE
if IsNull({ANALYSIS_RESULTS.RESULT_NO}) OR {ANALYSIS_RESULTS.RESULT_NO} = previous({ANALYSIS_RESULTS.RESULT_NO})
then GrpCnt :=1
else
if {ANALYSIS_RESULTS.RESULT_NO} <> previous ({ANALYSIS_RESULTS.RESULT_NO}) then grpcnt := 1 + grpcnt
;


In gf3 (footer) I have a formula, pagereset
WhilePrintingRecords;
NumberVar GrpCnt;
if {ANALYSIS_RESULTS.CONTROL_CHART_TYPE_DB} = 'ATTRIBUTE'
then GrpCnt := 1
else GrpCnt := 0;

In the Section Expert for gh3 header, I have Suppress if {ANALYSIS_RESULTS.CONTROL_CHART_TYPE_DB} = 'ATTRIBUTE'
or {@grpcnt}>0

This all works fine – if I remove the Section Expert code, I would get the gh3 header text for every value.
My problem is if I can have alot of lines that extend onto another page and the user would like the gh3 text to print on the new page.
group 3 has ‘Repeat Group Header On Each Page’ but this doesn’t appear to work.
I have no way of knowing how many records will be in this section or where they may appear relative to the records in group 1.
