In the menu for Report, go to Section expert...Under details you will see Details a, Details b...The Full Details can be suppressed and/or each of the lower level details (a & b).

I tried that and end up with Details a and Details b, but the layout tab only works for the Entire details section, not the sub sections :(

I am hoping a Crystal Guru can come to the recue.....

I have a report with a details section formatted for multiple colums, 3 across.

In one instance, I want the details formatted for 2 columns across

I can not select different reports at print time.

Can I have 2 separate details sections, one with 3 columns and one with 2 columns and conditionally suppress one of them?

or

conditionally set the number of columns?

Thanks.
Not certain to conditionally change column amounts. You certainly can
have multiple Detail sections and conditionally suppress. In Crystal
Reports, when designing, right-click in the left side of the screen
where the Detail section is and select "insert section below". I have
reports with up to 6 different detail bands and conditionally suppress
various ones.

Rather than trying to conditionally change the number of columns, try to
create two sub reports, one with three columns and one with two. Put
each one in its own detail section and then conditionally suppress the
detail section.
