Access 2013 has NO Stepped Layout for reporting

Hi Access Folks

I am using Access 2013 and running the Report Wizard against a query I made. per the requirement, the report layout should be "Stepped", but for some reasons I just can't see the option on my wizard's screen. The only options are "columnar", "tabular" and "justified".

I initially thought the reason was that the database was created with Access 2010 then moved 2013, but after I created a new database directly with 2013 and problem is still there. So I have no idea where to find the "stepped" layout. Please help!

FYI

thanks,
P

Did you add Grouping level in the wizard process?

Thanks for your quick response.

No, there is no any grouping level at all.

FYI: my wizard screen looks like below, but I notice other people's wizard looks like this.

I have no idea about what caused the problem. :(

FYI - My wizard screens are the same like those at below link, just EXCEPT the layout page!

you need to add grouping level, click Back and grouping level then continue and you will see the "stepped" selection
