Hi
what you have to do is add a child comand in the dataenvironmanr.  You can then group the child command.  When you then let the data report retrive the structure from the top command it should create 2 group headders.

i hope this helps, let me know if you need more detales of how to do this.

Hi Cat

  How can I add the fields in the child command to the report ?
It deos not allow me to.

  If I dont add and run the report it says 'Report sections do not match data source'

Thanx

OK
you have to set the dat ameber of the report to the top command (ie not the child command), then right click on the report and select retrive structure.  Then you can simply drag and drop fields from the data envieronment onto the reoprt.

let me know if this is unclear or you can e-mail me the files (dat env, db and report) and i can have a look at them
