Hello experts,

   Refer below for the report layout that I need to create in a report definition file using Microsoft Reporting Services 2008 in Visual Studio 2008. Note:There are two different PlanID's in this SQL Server 2008 R2 dataset.

PlanID 1
FundName       Amt1    Amt2   Amt3   Amt4   Amt5   Amt6   Amt 7    Amt8    Amt 9    Amt10

DivisionName 1

FundName1     100       150      75        400      50        350      800       600       780        100
FundName2     100       150      75        400      50        350      800       600       780        100
FundName3     100       150      75        400      50        350      800       600       780        100
etc
DivisionName1
  Totals             xxx        xxx      xxx        xxx      xxx       xxx       xxx       xxx        xxx        xxx

Same layout but DivisonName2 would be on a separate page for the same PlanID.    

  How would I do the following to achieve the layout mentioned above: What fields would be in the row group? Do I need to have another group under the main row group? Page break for each instance of a DivisionName for that PlanID? Summary totals for each Amt field for each DivisionName for that PlanID? A page break on the second PlanID? Finally, a Grand total of the Amt fields for both planid's?

   If you have any questions just let me know.

Thanks for your help,
Ting

Your row groups would look like this:

Plan ID
....DivisionName
........(Details)

When adding the groups, select the Add Group Header/Footer checkboxes, you can always delete them later if it turns out you don't need them.

In the group properties of the DivisionName group activate the Between each instance of a group setting in the Page Breaks page.

Add additional colums and put the fields in as appropriate.  When you put a field in one of the group header/footer cells it will automatically use the Sum() aggregation, resulting in your totals.
