duplicate data in report

duplicate data in report

duplicate data in report

I am using Seagate Crystal Report.  The report includes many sub-reports.  One of the subreports displays a set of data TWICE, although the data base shows the data to be there only once.
What causes this problem, and how do I fix it?

RE: duplicate data in report

One possibility is that the data is linked to something else that does occur twice, and you are referencing that 'something else' in your subreport detail lines.

As a work-round, you can suppress duplicates by testing
   field = Previous(field)

RE: duplicate data in report

The SQL in the subreport might cause this.

If the rows are truly duplicates, try going into the subreport and select Database->Select Distinct Records

More likely they are NOT duplicates, and it's an issue with some join(s).

If it's SQL related, generic text based posts won't help anyone, post technical information:

Crystal version
Database used
Connectivity used
the SQL generated (database->Show SQL Query)
Example data
Expected output
