Introduction

Editor's Note: The first edition of this article was written by Ajay Varghese.

In the previous part we saw how the Report Expert wizard just dumps all the items of the report into the predefined sections in an order irrespective of the exact requirement. Now, it is up to us to move these items around and place it in a particular order to get the desired result.  This is the tricky part of the whole report creation. 

The next obvious step would seem like moving the items to its appropriate Group, but this is where the trouble starts.  If you do this and view the report in a browser, you would notice all the Group Names being repeated. As you drill down each time, you would notice an extra row at the bottom of the report which is the parent Group Name, and you get to see all the details together, only after you have drilled down to the last section.
