It sounds like you want a sub-summary report sorted by the Artist. I think you will find what you want in Help or the Manual under subsummary parts. You put the Artist's name on the subsummary part of the layout rather than the body to get it to list only once. AND you have to go into preview mode to see the proper results.
You are embarking on a small adventure. I know FM users who have been at it for years and never created a subsummary report, but they are essential to all kinds of advanced reporting techniques.
Wow! Thank you both.
I'm going to try both methods so I can learn as much as possible about Filemaker (it has always been my favourite computer game).
