I must be missing something obvious but I am unable to create a 'simple' grouped table according to the following layout:

-------------------

| GROUP1

| -item1

| -item2

| GROUP2

| -item3

| -item4

-------------------

The datasource i am using is flat.( Item1 { Group ="GROUP1", Name = "item1"}) etc.

Is it even possible to do this with a single table? I've been going at it for about two hours now, i've seen all kinds of results, but not what i need :-)

Hi Erik,

This layout can be achieved by grouping the data in the Table/CrossTab item and inserting a new row (outside group -> above) to show the group names above the group's detail records.
Attached you can find a video demonstrating this approach.

Another approach to show the data in this layout is to add a group to the report and use separate TextBoxes instead of Table/CrossTab. TextBoxes containing Group field can be placed in GroupHeader section and TextBoxes containing Name field in the Detail section.
More information about specifics of different report section can be found in Report Structure help article.

Hi Katia,

Thanks so much for your assistance. I've been able to reproduce it and it works like a charm. I've also managed to figure out what i've missed all this time. It seems this outer group is hidden in the group explorer. This makes it very hard to see the difference when designing a report with features like this. It might be a good idea to have better visual indicators of these kinds of groups.

Again; thanks a lot!

Regards,

Erik

Hi Erik,

Group Explorer does not show static groups by default. To change this, switch to Extended mode - check this screenshot.

Katia,

I found that out this morning, testing your solution :-) My point was that its hard to see at the table itself what it's doing. Visual indicators would work better, imho.

Thanks!
