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. :(

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