The field i use to gorup by on a wizard generated report in access database shows the ID not the text. When the field is used not as a group it works fine. I am a novice access user. Please help.

Using Access 2007 on Windows XP.
The table is drawn down from a sharepoint list, the field in question is a lookup in List 1 from a second sharepoint list (List 2). Hope that makes sense.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I generally group by the ID fields, and the report wizard will generally only put that ID field in the group, but you can drag other fields that are associated with the group into the group, and reposition them as you feel appropriate.

I also generally move the ID control to the right side of the report and hide it (field (set it's visible property to false).
