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.

Hi Mike,

The Table Of Contents is designed to reflect data hierarchy, not report items hierarchy.
The TOC level is indeed set automatically based on the hierarchical structure of the report sections/items/groups.

Feel free to log the requirement for introducing a TocLevel along with the TocText property as a feature request in our feedback portal.
