I have this report created by someone else and I need to insert another row that belongs to Group1. If you look at the screen shot you will see he has Group 1 already repeating 4 times. How did he do that and how can I continue to add yet another Group 1?

If this is for SSRS 2000 or 2005 you just need to right click over the row handle and select Insert Group.

Yes, but when I do that it now inserts group 2 and group 3 etc. How do get it to insert another line for group 1?

so if you insert another group in the middle of the 4 groups you will get a group named "2" in there?

Yes, I do not see how he was able to get all 4 of them to be in group 1. Even though I named them Table1_Group1

what will be the problem if you leave it named as group 2?

Did you group by the same field as the other groups?

Yes, everything is exactly the same. Should I attached the rdl?

The real problem was I was trying to get the heading above the table to appear on every page. Right now it only appears on the first page. I thought if I could add more groups and drop each text box onto each row that would be the way to do that.

If you can attach the rdl that will help.

well I have SSRS 2008 and in there all looks like one big group, so I just added a couple of extra lines in the header and detail section, probably that works to you if you are able to open it...

Apparently this is simple to do in SSRS 2008 but a bear in 2005.
