Looking for some help on a mail merge process.  I would like to group all students into one page however when I run the mail merge all the students have their own page instead of being grouped by school.  

I have the report grouped by school then by group by child on exam description then group by child on the exam date.  


When I go to mail merge in word it will list out the students as individuals.  Where do I add the group by school so all students who fit that exam description & exam date  are under the school.  Where is this option at?  Is this a word mail merge,  SSRS report builder, or done in the sql query itself?


select CONVERT(varchar,ME.members_exams_examdate, 101) as exam_date,
		mem.members_firstname, mem.members_lastname, 
		me.members_exams_id, me.members_exams_score,  me.members_exams_examdate,
		ex.exams_description, 
		sc.schools_name, sc.schools_city, sc.schools_state	
from members_exams as me
join exams as ex
on me.exams_id = ex.exams_id
join schools as sc
on me.schools_id = sc.schools_id
join members as mem
on me.members_id = mem.members_id

Open in new window



This is what the report look like:

This is what I am able to get from the mail merge:

This is what I am looking for :

I think you should do all the operations in the SQL itself. that should help,

            ex.exams_description,

left join exams as ex
