19.2 Create a Data Model and a Group Above Layout

When you are creating a single-query report, such as this one, you can use the Report Wizard to create the data model and layout simultaneously.

To create a data model and group above layout:

  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 both Web and Paper Layout, then click Next.

  5. On the Style page, type a Title for your report, select Group Above, 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 ENAME, REPID, CUSTID, NAME, ADDRESS, TRIM(CITY)||',
    '||STATE||'  '||ZIP LOCATION,  AREA||' '||PHONE, CREDITLIMIT 
    FROM EMP, CUSTOMER 
    WHERE EMPNO = REPID 
    ORDER BY REPID
    

    Note:

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

    • Copy and paste the code from the provided text file called pagenum_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 19.1, "Prerequisites for This Example" describes the sample schema requirements for this example.

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

  10. Move REPID to the Group Fields list, too, then click Next.
