    I am working on active report for company financial report. I need to express huge lists of data on it. One report needs about more than 6 pages. If anybody knows how to display multiple lines of data on Group Header or Footer, please enlighten me.

    If by multiple lines you mean data from multiple rows, a sub report would probably be the way to go. Else please be more specific.

    Thank you for reply, Smith.

    Yes, data from multiple rows. If the sub report is the answer, would you please let me know where I can get sample code.

    I would recommend taking a look at chapter 7 from the Active Report Help. All of the examples are based on the detail section but it should not be that difficult to move a subreport based on the detail to a group header or footer. So if the example says you need code in Detail Format place it in the respective Format event for your group header or footer. The query could be tricky, but based on the fact that you already know you need multiple rows I am getting the impression that that won't be an issue for you.
