Grouping on multiple columns
When you group data on multiple columns, consider the order of precedence before you create the groups. To group customer data by state, then by city, create the groups in that order. The order in which grouped columns appear in a report indicates the order in which the groups were created. The first group appears as the leftmost column in the table, the second group appears next to it, and so on.
