Crystal Reports Subreports slowing down main report

Crystal Reports Subreports slowing down main report

I'm hoping that someone can give me insight on my problem.

I have a report that when my customer runs for a large date range, the report takes hours to compile. It was created with 2 sub reports in the detail section which I know is the problem. I've taken both off and it runs fine, I add only one of them back on and I have the same problem. So now I'm trying to look at the report and see if I can design it without them.
This is what it needs to look like (currently has the sub reports on it, circled in blue and red):

When I try and remove the subs I'm having a problem because they need to be in the detail section so the data is duplicating:

Any ideas on how to get the results that I need (on the first image) but without using subreports?

RE: Crystal Reports Subreports slowing down main report

We would need to know the tables and fields used, and to see how you are linking the tables together. It would help to understand the purpose of the report and what is meant by “other streets” and “Owner”. I’m also wordering why the same data appears in two fields in three sections in your first example. Are you only showing part of the detail data which would explain this?
