Grouping brings together or summarizes the related data of a report based on the grouping key.

Group key can be arranged in ascending or descending order, based on group key value or a detail field’s summary value.

For example, if you group population details by region, you can arrange regions by name or by highest to lowest population.

Ad hoc reports support multi-level grouping, for example, you can group the report data by country; within country by states and within states by cities.
