Grouped Table Using SSRS Report Wizard

This SSRS article shows how to create a grouped table using a report wizard with an example. For this example, we use the shared data source pointing to Adventure Works DW 2019.

You can either use the shared data source you created earlier or create the new one here. We now use the shared data source pointing to Adventure Works DW.

The Sql query that we use for this SSRS example is:

SELECT [FirstName]
      ,[LastName]
      ,[BirthDate]
      ,[MaritalStatus]
      ,[Gender]
      ,[EmailAddress]
      ,[YearlyIncome]
      ,[EnglishEducation]
      ,[EnglishOccupation]
  FROM [dbo].[DimCustomer]
SQL Query

Select Tabular as the report type and click Next.

Choose Tabular Report Type

The next page is to design the table with the available fields. In this example, we want to create a grouped table report. So, add the English Education column to the Group section for grouping, and add the remaining fields to the details section.
