Adding sections for sorting and grouping

In the previous tasks, we worked with adding, formatting, and positioning fields in the detail section. Now we will work with the other default sections in the report template and will also add a section for sorting and grouping the information in the final report. For background information, a brief overview of the role of the sections is given. A default template has the following five sections:

  • Report Header: Fields and labels in this section print once at the very beginning of the report. Used for a title page or summary.
  • Page Header: Fields and labels in this section print once at the top of each page in the report. Typically used for a report name and identification of the user running the report.
