Exploring the Standard Groups

Another way to organize project information is to apply a group definition. Grouping allows you to, for example, create subtotals for numeric data or create a multiple-level, hierarchical structure of data based on some code such as the outline numbering. Applying a group definition rearranges the task or row information onscreen into a temporary outline structure, according to the values in specified Group By fields. In this way, grouping is similar to performing a multilevel sort. You can use the Show Subtasks, Hide Subtasks, and Show Outline Level drop-down list buttons on the Formatting toolbar to show or hide group details.


Group definitions also include value intervals for the Group By fields so you can control subgroup structure. Rolled-up values within subgroups are calculated and displayed on the group total lines. In Figure 19.32, the Cost table is displayed on the Resource Sheet view and the standard Resource grouping has been applied. A project manager could use this view to determine the cost contributions to the project by each level of resource pay rates.
