How To: Insert Group Name Text into a Crystal Reports 2008 Section [Field Notes]

Problem:

I accidentally deleted the group name text from a section of my Crystal Report in Crystal Reports 2008, and now I would like to re-insert the text.

Solution

This is embarrassingly simple, and yet I found it to be surprisingly counter-intuitive. Maybe it’s just me..

In the Field Explorer section, expand the Group Name Fields section and drag the name onto the report.

Field Explorer Window

It’s not under insert, not as a menu shortcut, etc. – as far as I can tell, the only place to drag a Group Name field from is there.
