Grouping and Group Counts in a Report Recipe
Users want a report that has the ability to group items together and give a count of the number of items in each grouping. This would make reports easier to read and provide a quick item overview.
Create a report recipe containing grouping tags that allow users to select a field they want to group the items by, and display the grouping field, value and count for each grouping in the report.
For example:
<%version 1%>
<%description <b>Description: </b>This is a report that uses
Windchill RVS grouping report tags.<br><br>%>
<%param name="reporttitle" type="String" prompt="Report Title" value=""
description="Descriptive title for your report."%>
<%param name="reportheader" type="MultiString" prompt="Report Header"
value="" description="Text appearing at the top of the report page."%>
<%param name="reportfooter" type="MultiString" prompt="Report Footer"
value="Confidential - Internal Use Only" description="Text appearing
at the bottom of the report page."%>
<title>Grouping Report</title>
