I have a detail row that I need to suppress depending on whether the line type has changed. The line type is not part of a break group.

How can I determine this when reading the detail and then still have that available when the visibility formula is processed.

The previous value of the line type doesn't seem to be retained.

Example.

Vendor,Line type, amount.

Yvonne,Hours, 10
Smith,Hours,20
Jones,Cost,10

Vendor Amount
--------- ----------
Yvonne 10
Smith 20

Vendor Amount
-------- ----------
Jones 10

The heading row is only printed if the line type changes.

Why can you not just insert a group in the table and set it to group on line type. Then use the group header for your labels?
