Chapter 15. Preparing Advanced Reports > Grouping and Sorting Report Data

Grouping and Sorting Report Data

Most reports you create require that you organize the data into groups and subgroups in a style similar to the outline of a book. The Report Wizard lets you establish the initial grouping and sorting properties for your data, but you might want to rearrange your report's data after reviewing the Report Wizard's first draft.

The Sorting and Grouping dialog (see Figure 15.1) lets you modify these report properties in Design mode. This section uses the Products on Hand by Category report that you created in the preceding chapter. The sorting and grouping methods described here, however, apply to any report that you create. To display the dialog, open the report in Design view and click the toolbar's Sorting and Grouping button.
