Hello,

I am working on creating a repot.  I need to add grouping to the report.  I know how to group on a field where ther are like terms... ie group on city name..

I need to add grouping based on a value of a field.....

Each record has a rating number... 1 - 60...

I need to group.. ratings 44-60 togther
35 to 44 together
27 to 34 together
15 to 26 togther

Use a query with BETWEEN condition

eg:

SELECT * FROM TableName
WHERE Fieldname
BETWEEN 0 AND 14

How you set it will depend on you report layout.

You may have a series of subreports each with its own query having different between condition

Alternatively you can bundle the between queries into a union query and display the result in single or multiple records report

You may group on a calculated field in the query, named Range
Assume the field name: f1

Range: IIf([f1]>=44,"44-60",IIf([f1]>=35,"35-43",IIf([f1]>=27,"27-34",IIf([f1]>=15,"15-26","0-14"))))

In the report add group on Range

The group feature in reports (AC2007) can group by 5s 10s 100s 1000s or fixed custom intervals.  You have a variable grouping.  So,

I would create a new field in a query to id the group with a compound IIF statement and group on this ID.  For Example, in QBE grid field name enter:

Group : IIF([Rating] < 14, "Group1",IIF([Rating] < 27, "Group2",IIF([Rating] < 35, "Group3",IIF([Rating] < 45, "Group4", IIF([Rating] < 61, "Group5", "UnGrouped")))))

This new field in your report query can now be used for report grouping.
