Report Builder 2016 videos | Report Builder Pt 6.9 - Matrix Nested Groups

Posted by Andrew Gould on 04 January 2021

This video explains how to create parent and child groups in both the row and column groups of a matrix in Report Builder. You'll learn four ways to add extra groups to a matrix; how to ensure you can always see the row and column headers; and how to create row and column subtotals and grand totals. The final part of the video shows how to create a collapsible group in a matrix so that you can choose which details you want to see when you run the report.
