Strange display problem

    I am trying to build a report in which I have several subreports. Each subreport is in its own group header. All my data is pulled into the report correctly but for some reason on page 4 of my report a large gap appears before the next group is displayed. I have included screen shots of the pages where this problem occurs. I am not sure where to find out what build I am using. Any help you can provice would be greatly appreciated.

    It seems that the screen shots have not been attached as I am not able to find it.
    As you mentioned that you have your sub reports under group header and the it doesn't appear good on page 4 of your report. I would suggest you to check if  report's "keeptogether" property is True or not.
    Also to check the version of the Active Report you are using Under the property section of the Report designer click on "About" tab and it will give you the information about ActiveReport version you are using.

    You can also get to know the version of Active Reports from
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Data Dynamics\ActiveReports Pro/
    check the "arpro2.dll" version.

    Thanks for your response. I have since moved some things around on the report. Originally I thought maybe this was a problem with the subreport but it appears it may be a problem with the group. I moved the subreport so that it was not the last item in the group(it was previously) and all text in the group displays properly but there is still a large gap between the end of this group and the start of the next one. The grpKeepTogether property is set to firstdetail as is grpKeepTogether property in the following group. It does not seem to matter what the grpkeeptogether property is set to at least as far as this issue goes. The subreport keep together property is set to false but the problem seems to occur whether there are records in the subreport or not. I have reattached the original screen shots also.

    Thank you for sending the screenshot.I can observe the issue that you face.It should have to do with some keeptogether property that has been set.I would not be able to diagnose this without the exact report layouts(RPX) and data.Can you send a small sample(probably connecting to an mdb or xml file) where this issue is visible?This will help me diagnose and provide a solution if posssible.
