Hi vchris and welcome to the forum.
I'm trying to visualize what you have here. I suspect what you need to do is take the heading OUT of the MCR region if you can. That way it should work for all records.
To do that you will probably need to set the start and end points of the MCR using other templates - dummy templates if necessary. There are reports and times when attempting this can be especially challenging and some extreme creativity may be required. If you have the option of providing us with a small illustrative sample of the report it could be very useful.
