Report - Overlapping rectangles

Following situation:
I've got a report where a graph on it. There are also 2 rectangles (1 red color and 1 blue color - Rectangle BoxNewWages3 (red one) & BoxOldWages3 (blue one)) that are adjusted to 2 variables. Sometimes, they fall together (thn I only show the BoxNewWages3 rectangle (which has a red color).
When the overlap each other (so we'll always see 1 complete and 1 a piece).
Now the problem is that I always want the red one above the blue, but I don't know how to achieve this.
Can someone help me ?

Why do not you try to change the color of rectangel programmatically. When you want the blue one on top then make the red one trasparent. OR if you want to make the red one on top then make the blue trasnparant.

But i think there is not a menu like in Excel or Word that you can send one to back of the other object.

Hope this idea is helpfull to you.

I must see the blue and red dot. It's not possible to make one of the two transparant, because I need to see them both if necessary.
The red must come on top of the blue !

It has something to do with the Z Order which normally you can change with the Format --> Bring to Front, Send To Back but if it did not work when you tried it ... I can't be sure. When you design a report the ZOrder is done by the order that you add the controls to the report so I guess you added the Blue rect and then the Red rect.
