Creating Grouped Reports in Vizual Personnel Manager

For Advanced Personnel Manager Users*

Following on from our recent article’s on creating Simple List Reports and Summary Reports this month we will be looking at creating a Grouped Report which is a more advanced report using Vizual Personnel Manager. A Grouped Report can show a grouped list of information with subtotals that takes data from the Employee Details screen AND the Training History screen.


Grouped Reports

Grouped  reports are more complex to create but can provide a ‘best-of-both-worlds’ approach as they combine List and Summary reports into one.

The process for creating a Grouped Report is similar to producing a list report however this time we need to spend more time customising the layout of the page to get the results we require.

In this example we will create a report showing a list of Training Records grouped by Employee. The report will also show a total cost spent on training each employee.
