2. From the tool bar, click on Insert > Group, from the common tab, click on the first drop down and select your formula ‘PageHeader’ (Don’t close the window just yet)

3. From the Options Tab from within the Insert Group window, , select “Repeat Group Header on Each Page” and click OK.

4. Add text, images, etc. to your PageHeader group to display your information for each page of your sub report.
