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 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).
