so just put your labels in the lowest subsummary object above the body. Also force sorting on the layout via a script trigger, so regardless of how they enter it, it will display sorted.
So your parts would be like:
----MANUFACTURER SUBSUMMARY (labels under the manufacturer name)
------BODY (list of records)
Thanks. After having posted, I got the same idea, almost. A separate sub-summary part with the headers. The problem (which I failed to explain well) is that the layout can be entered from different points of view, so the sub-summary part for manufacturer may not show.
If I sort in a script triggered by the OnLayoutEnter or OnRecordLoad events, I will destroy the current sort order (i.e. the sort script step does not work as: "OK, already sorted by X and Y, now also sort by Z", but it must have all the sort criteria).
But I think I can make it work. I was just not fully satisfied with either no labels or labels above the group headlines.
