Defining Content Controls For a Group Report

This task is a step in Process of Creating a Report with a Group Break.

To define content controls for a group report

  1. Complete the procedure described in Defining Content Controls for a Custom Report using the following modifications:
    • Before adding the ssFrm component to the Content slot, drag and drop the ssGrp component from the sscustom.rol library to the Content slot in the Report Structure window.
    • When adding the ssFrm component, drop it onto the child Content slot in the Content - ssGrp tree.

      Placing the ssFrm component inside the Content - ssGrp tree places the ssFrm component in a subordinate position within the group. This placement is reflected in the report as line items with a group, as illustrated in Figure 10.

    • Subclass the Content - ssGrp and Content - ssFrm trees.
    • Rename the ssGrp tree to ssGrpStage, and the ssFrm tree to ssFrmOpportunityContent.
    • Make sure you complete the procedure by adding the datastream component.
  2. In the Libraries window expand the Grouprpt.rol library.
  3. Right-click the ssGrpStage tree, choose Properties, and then use the Properties window to enter ssSales_Stage into the Key property.
  4. Drag and drop the ssFrm component from the Libraries window onto the child PageHeader slot of the ssGrpStage tree in the Report Structure window.
  5. Subclass the ssFrm tree you added in Step 5, and then rename it to ssFrmStageHeader.
  6. From the application-level menu, choose File, and then Save.
