    Default Repeating Detail in Report

    Report from a set, randomly produces repeated detail sections. Report normally produces 4 pages for a current record controlled operation. Randomly, it might produce as many as 37 pages of data, all being repeated from the same detail as shown on the first 4 pages of the report.

    There can be only one.

    There are only child records. I've solved the problem by pointing the form to a single table that contains the necessary content. Apparently, pointing it to a set that contains the parent table must have been causing the problem.

    Many thanks for the set possibility for causing the problem.

    Alpha handles a one to many relationship, displayed in a layout, by displaying the parent record values for each associated child record. Even if you weren't including child table values in the report Alpha was including one composite record from the set for each parent-child combination, much like one would see in a browse of the set.
