I'm working with database table where is for example workers number, name, main contractors number and contact person, subcontractors number and contact person, our contact person etc.

I need report where data is grouped in 4 levels by:
     Our contact person
          Main contractor and contact person
               Subcontractor and contact person
                    Workers data

Can I do this so that data is in one database component or shall I need many components?

I get this almost work with 4 query components but if our contact person have many main contractors, only first one is printed on report and also if main contractor have many subcontractors, only one is printed.

set the groupbands in your desired order with the expressions you need,
use one query, which collects the data you need, ensure there,
that the query order by clause matches your grouping-scheme

>Put I 4 group bands or how?

yes, four groupbands, or three, if there are no additional details
(Workers data could be a detail)

     Our contact person
          Main contractor and contact person
               Subcontractor and contact person
                    Workers data  <-- Detail?

or

     Our contact person
          Main contractor and contact person
               Subcontractor and contact person
                    Workers data
                         DetailData

>Expressions is also what I don't understand.

Expressions -> means groupExpression -> usually the field on which should be grouped

hmm,

a layout

+-------- Groupband1 - GroupExpression = Dataset.ContactPerson -
| [Field] [Field] ....
+-------- Groupband2 - GroupExpression = Dataset.MainContractor -
| [Field] [Field] ....
+-------- Groupband3 - GroupExpression = Dataset.SubContractor -
| [Field] [Field] ....
+-------- DetailBand - ---------------------------------------------------
| [Field] [Field] ....

>but all columns are printed under our first contact person.

Phiuh!

Oops, to contact person has forgotten wrong dataset. My fault =)

Now it's working just right, just before I begin to modify it but now report is printed in ten seconds, before it takes abaut 15 minutes.

Thanks a lot!!!
