I am trying to create a report that is structured like the attachment.   I have to fields Machine and Category that would be a header and then data pertaining to those 2 would be listed under.  Right now I have a sub report using a table.  I get the data from the DB and stuff into a datatable.any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello Mark,

It is not needed to use a sub-report when you already have a Table item. You can place the Table item directly inside a section of the main report. The Table item has its own data source which can be configured to receive the DB data via a SqlDataSource Component, or to receive the DataTable data via an ObjectDataSource Component.

I had to scrap the tables (was told to go with just text boxes).   I am not sure what section(s) of the report the Machine and Category fields go in as well as the details for the fields below those.  This is my first report and I am uncertain of how to do the layout on the report as well as how to code the data.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello Mark,

It is recommended to place the Machine and Category fields inside a group header section in the report. The detail records below can be displayed using a Table item (Data Item) inside the group header section, or can be displayed directly in the report's detail section using text boxes.
For more information on the report sections please refer to the Report Structure help article. To group by the Machine/Category field, you will need to add Grouping to the report.
