How to group on field with one group containing more then one field being grouped by

Crystal Reports 2016

I am using the standard grouping by field in my report.  However I would like to actually combined several fields to fall under one specific group.  How would I go about doing that.

Field to group by.  A, B, C, D, E, F

                       Group: A
                           Detail A
                       Group B
                            Detail B
                       Group C
                            Detail C
                       Group (Contains D, E & F)
                            Detail D,E,f

Ido meant to create a formula in the formula editor then group on the formula.


Thanks to both of you.  Ido for the exact solution needed and mlmcc for clarifying some confusion.  Works as advertised.
