After some research I think the grouping in tables will work, but I'm having a hard time finding information on that.

Do you have any guides? Thanks for replying, HendrikWiese

Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V

Task Manager for Hyper-V provides critical information that allows you to monitor Hyper-V performance by displaying real-time views of CPU and memory at the individual VM-level, so you can quickly identify which VMs are using host resources.

Yes you can, there are a couple of ways to achieve this.  Also depends on what you are really asking / experience.

but it is not neccessarily a table grid within another table grid as such. Which incidentally can be done.

The "easiest" is to get a control break type thing happening or Master Detail report where the main table is the master and the nested table is the detail

Have a look at : http://www.codeproject.com/KB/reporting-services/1tomanyreports_vsnet2005.aspx

And more sample reports on : http://msftrsprodsamples.codeplex.com/Wiki/View.aspx?title=SS2005%21AdventureWorks%20Sample%20Reports

The next way is to use a sub-report : http://www.simple-talk.com/content/print.aspx?article=278

And if new, then found this to be a good general manual : http://www.scribd.com/doc/5405002/MS-SQL-REPORTING-SERVICES-final2

Now, there is still special grids where you can do tables within table (grids) as the final option - and maybe you have already seen / considered the above and really want it, but there are some gotcha's so please consider the rest first...

Thanks Mark,

I think this would work for other situations, but I was able to find a solution here:

Yep, that will do it. Even easier in having a detail report with "hide dupes". That is the great thing about report writes - they normally have several methods of being able to present data, and the number one rule of data design is "what do you want to get out of it".

Thanks for the points, and very happy to help.
