    I want serial no only  group wise. As above, John have 3 rows but John appears only on top row . So we want serial no will populate only Project maneger's name wise not row wise.

    Are you storing yoru SerialNumber somewhere in the database, or are you just looking for consecutive numbering of some sort (i.e. not based on data stored in your tables)?

    If this is stored in the database, just build a Group based on the SerialNumber field, and add your various fields to that grouping level.

    If this is not stored in the database, then you can add numbering to your query. The link below should show you how to do this:
