Default Chapter 5 P 129

In chapter 5, page 129 we delete the two empty TABLE footer rows (did that).

We are then to select the detail row, my rows are named:


When I select either of the first two rows I have a "Grouping/Sorting" property (as outlined in the book). When I try to follow the instruction on page 129 and select the Detail line, then find the Grouping/Sorting property, it does not have one.

It has only a Grouping property. When I click the ellipse beside Grouping (not Grouping / Sorting) I get a dialog box that is ALMOST what is shown in the book. I do not have a Sorting Tab.

I will proceed with the example and see if it matters.

It did not matter.

It appears that the property is sometimes named "Grouping/Sorting" and sometimes just named "Grouping". It acts like it is the same property and it worked. It just seems to have a different name based on some criteria of which I am not aware.

This is a result of subtle changes made between beta 2 and the RTM. Your assumptions are correct and the design should work without the Sorting tab settings.
