Field groups enable you to do the following:

  • Add a group of fields to a form or report in one step.

  • Add a label to a group of fields.

Create a Field Group

  1. In the AOT, expand the Data Dictionary node, and then expand the Tables node.

  2. Locate the table that you want to add a field group to, and expand that node.

  3. Right-click Field Groups, and then click New Group.

    This will add a new field group called Group1.

  4. Right click the new field group, click Properties, and then type a name for the field group in the Name property.

  5. Right-click the table, click Open New Window, and then expand the Fields node.

  6. In the new window, drag fields from the Fields node onto your new field group.

  7. Save the updated version of your table.
