Combining and Layering Report Objects

The concepts of combining and layering report objects becomes relevant when you need to precisely control the relationship between two or more objects when occupying a common space on the report. For example, let's assume that rather than having our country field read USA, we would like to combine the Country database field with a text object so that it will read, Country/Pays: USA—displaying the textual description for country in both English and French. To accomplish this, you can easily combine a text and a database field into one common report object.

We will continue to build on the earlier exercises, and add a more descriptive text object to our report to produce the desired results. However, we will start by adding a group definition to our report. The group definition will allow us to logically present each customer within the country in which they are located.
