I have a bunch of tables from different data sources where I want to group certain tables into a Level of the Table of Contents. There is no repeating tables\data\structure to these. According to the documentation on the Table of Contents:
"To form a hierarchical structure of the TOC, you need to set the TocText property of the report groups, the CrossTab/Table groups, the Detail section and the Report (useful for SubReports)"
It seems the only way to have anything beyond level 1 is to use Report Groups, CrossTab\Table groups or the Detail Section.
As mentioned, I have no repeating data, which makes Report Groups wrong.
None of this is from a single data source, so table groups is out, unless a ridiculous implementation is done where each section somehow gets its own group.
Detail section would mean each and every group would need to be a different SubReport. While this would work, I feel it is a work around and not a valid solution as SubReports are for modularization\re-usability, of which none of these will be used again.
Why can there not be a TOCLevel along with TOCText or hierarchical structure interpreted from stacking panels, as the tool-tip of Panels states it is a "grouping mechanism for organizing report items" ?
Thanks for the input and help.
