Go back to your idea of a subsummary report and do the following
create a layout with parts in this order
SubSummary (when sorted by Company Name)
* Now place your company information fields in the subsummary part
* Place the person information fields in the body part. Do not put company
information in the body part.
Now do the following
1. Find all
2. Sort by Company Name
3. Go to your new layout
4. enter preview mode
There is your report showing each company and the people who belong to that
company. That is the basics of what you want to do....Now experiment around
a little and you will find you can modify this setup to do quite a bit.
