SSRS: How to add a group header/footer to an already existing group

Hi All

I have an SSRS 2008 report with a group, that has a header and no footer. SSRS Group with a header but no footerWhen I create the group it displays a prompt that allows you to check checkboxes to add headers and footers.  Once the group is created, I'm not seeing anywhere where you can add what isn't there already.

Q:  How to add a group header/footer to an already existing group

Right now all I can do is delete and re-create the group, which is mildly annoying.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Jim,

I asked this exact same question last year at PASS after one of the SSRS sessions by that MS guy, Bob Meyers. (had to look that up)

And his answer was "you can't do that".  Well, stubborn as I am, since then I have found out how to do this!

Imagine you want to add a row right above the Details level.  To do that, right-click the Details item In the Row Groups pane and select Add Total > Before (or After if you prefer).  That's it, easy huh? ;)

One would think that this functionality would have been built so it's a little more intuitive.

Thanks V.

That's true!  For the Columns they actually implemented functionality to add one inside or outside a group straight from the table designer.  But for the Rows they must have forgotten about that...
