DataReport Grouping

I'm using the datareport by assigning a recordset progamatically. If I have a recordset that has 7 (daily)revenue amounts for each store location, can I group these with a subtotal using the group header/footer? This is what I have:

City1   Monday    $200
City1   Tuesday   $100
City1   Wednsday  $300
City1   Thursday  $200
City1   Friday    $100
City1   Saturday  $400
City1   Sunday    $200
City2   Monday    $300
City2   Tuesday   $100
etc...

What I want:

        City1
City1   Monday    $200
City1   Tuesday   $100
City1   Wednsday  $300
City1   Thursday  $200
City1   Friday    $100
City1   Saturday  $400
City1   Sunday    $200
     City1 Total $1500

        City2
City2   Monday    $200
City2   Tuesday   $100
City2   Wednsday  $300
City2   Thursday  $200
City2   Friday    $100
City2   Saturday  $400
City2   Sunday    $200
     City2 Total $1500
etc...


Can I Assign a recordset and do this or do I have to use the DataEnvironmet?

Maybe the easiest way to do this is to define a view or a table temporarily that is identical to the structure of your recordset.  Use the RDC Designer to setup your report based on this new view and get the layout and format of the report the way you want it.

At runtime, use report.database.setdatasource(rs) to set the datasource of the report to your recordset.

This way you can let crystal manage the grouping and subtotaling.  All you have to do is get the recordset defined in your app and pass that recordset to crystal.

After you have designed the report you can dump the view or table you used to make the report.  I keep them around for a while in case I need to tweak the report layout.

Use the group footer and insert the formula =sum(fieldname) to total your dollar values.  Group on your city name field.

Are you trying to build the datareport in code or are you using the designer?

Why?  You have a fixed report here.  Use the designer.

Sorry, our T-1 went down I couldn't get back, ameritech's fault.
I think what I need out of the database is too complicated to get it directly with the designer.  What I have above is the result of other computations. I do think I can dump my results into a table and then use the designer. But...I've never used all the features of the command object in th designer. Can you show me how to create the grouping totals I need?

Are you using Access, SQL Server or some other database?

What is the source of the recordset you described?  Is it a table or an SQL select?

SQL. As I said I can put the results in a table, and make a command object to set the report to. The table would have the above info. I need to group and total it.
