Experts,

I have the following in the reports qry design window divided between 2 groups.   Is it possible to combine the two statements into just one "MyGroup".  I would have in effect, 4 options based on either [DateApproved] or [DateAmendApprovedbyBank].  Or maybe a sub report would be better but I think it migght slow down the report speed.

thank you

MyGroup2: IIf(IsNull([tblLCAmendHistory].[DateApproved]),"Awaiting Amend Approval by Co","Amend Approved by Co")

MyGroup: IIf(IsNull([tblLCAmendHistory].[DateAmendApprovedByBank]),"Awaiting Amend Approval by Bank","Recently Approved Amend by Bank")

You can combine it, but there will be little bit different cases:
1. [DateApproved] is null
1a. [DateApproved] is null and [DateAmendApprovedByBank] is null
1b. [DateApproved] is null and [DateAmendApprovedByBank] is not null
2. [DateApproved] is not null
2a. [DateApproved] is not null and [DateAmendApprovedByBank] is null
2b. [DateApproved] is not null and [DateAmendApprovedByBank] is not null
You should describe options for these cases
