Can numbers and sub numbers be added to the headings and subheadings on the summary page?

I'd suggest using the Preferences > Preferences, Report option to auto-number subheadings. That way subheadings are automatically numbered throughout your main report and in your summary, creating a great reference for your clients.

Thank you, Donna. I think that satisfy the hounds. :rolleyes:

I recently received a request from an agent to have each comment in my reports be given a unique number. I tried turning on the "automatic numbering of subheadings" function. This yielded a numbering system which was close to what the agent wanted, but not quite.
Where it fell short was in Headings where there was more than one subheading without a name. In this case, the first subheading (which might contain a disclaimer or other descriptive text) would be given a number such as 3.1, the first defect (which would be the next subform) is not given a number unless the subform has a different name. Hence, most of my defect comments do not get numbered. My forms are set up with a lot of unnamed subforms to minimize label clutter in the final report.
Is there a workaround for this?

Any time subheadings with the exact same subheading name immediately follow each other, they are considered part of the same subheading and the following labels are automatically suppressed in the report and at print time. This is by design, as it allows you to insert an unlimited number of photos for a particular area, and automatically suppresses continued information for a given area.
If your subheading labels are identical, or don't have labels how can one tell them apart? That doesn't seem like a logical setup.
Sounds like a quick solution would be to insert headings between the subheadings (or subforms, if the subform contains a subheading for an item) in your main form, so that you can use the headings to separate them, or distinguish each area.
Or alternatively, you could probably click the empty subheading labels in the report to assign labels for repeated items to specify location or otherwise distinguish them. That way they would be unique.
If you need further help or suggestions with your particular setup, I'd suggest contacting support directly, so they can get a backup of your forms and an example report to actually see how you have them organized and offer more appropriate suggestions.
