27.2 Create a Matrix Group Data Model and Layout

Since this report is a single-query report, it is easiest to build it with the Report Wizard.

To create the data model and layout with the Report Wizard:

  1. Launch Reports Builder (or, if already open, choose File > New > Report).

  2. In the Welcome or New Report dialog box, select Use the Report Wizard, then click OK.

  3. If the Welcome page displays, click Next.

  4. On the Report Type page, select Create Paper Layout Only, then click Next.

  5. On the Style page, type a Title for your report, select Matrix with Group, then click Next.

  6. On the Data Source page, click SQL Query, then click Next.

  7. On the Data page, enter the following SELECT statement in the Data Source definition field:

    SELECT TO_CHAR(HIREDATE, 'YY') YEAR, DEPTNO, JOB, SUM(SAL) 
    FROM EMP
    GROUP BY TO_CHAR(HIREDATE, 'YY'), DEPTNO, JOB
    

    Note:

    You can enter this query in any of the following ways:

    • Copy and paste the code from the provided text file called matrixgroup_code.txt into the Data Source definition field.

    • Click Query Builder to build the query without entering any code manually.

    • Type the code in the Data Source definition field.

  8. Click Next.

    Note:

    If you are not already connected to a database, you will be prompted to connect to the database when you click Query Builder or Next. Ensure that you connect to a database that has the appropriate schema for this example. Section 27.1, "Prerequisites for This Example" describes the sample schema requirements for this example.

  9. On the Groups page, click YEAR in the Available Fields list and click the right arrow (>) to move this field to the Matrix Group Fields list, then click Next.

  10. On the Rows page, click DEPTNO in the Available Fields list and click the right arrow (>) to move this field to the Matrix Row Fields list, then click Next.

  11. On the Columns page, click JOB in the Available Fields list and click the right arrow (>) to move this field to the Matrix Column Fields list, then click Next.

  12. On the Cell page, click SUM_SAL in the Available Fields list and click the right arrow (>) to move this field to the Matrix Cell Fields list, then click Next.

    Note:

    In this case, the query itself performs the summary through the SUM function. Hence, you should not use the Sum button in this instance.

  13. On the Totals page, click SUM_SAL in the Available Fields list and click Sum to move this field to the Matrix Totals list, then click Next.

  14. On the Labels page, remove the label for SUM_SAL, then click Next.

  15. On the Template page, select No Template, then click Finish to display your report output in the Paper Design view. It should look something like this:

    Figure 27-2 Paper Design view for matrix with group above report

    Description of Figure 27-2 follows
    Description of "Figure 27-2 Paper Design view for matrix with group above report"

  16. Save the report as matrixgroup_your_initials.rdf.
