Groups are the ‘context’ of the data in the report.
If you had a list of sales commission data, with a grand total, it wouldn’t have much meaning to you. However if you wanted to see commissions for a particular sales rep, then you could group by sales rep, to see the individual data for each sales rep. Further, if you wanted to see the results by customer, then you could group by sales rep, then customer.
Another grouping example would be in the financial area. Having a general ledger detail listing for balance sheet accounts would have no meaning unless you grouped them first by assets and liabilities, then into the appropriate sub groups, e.g. bank, accounts receivable, current liabilities, etc.
Here is a QQube Example: financial_balance_sheet_(qqube7.x).rpt from the QQube Configuration Tool.
