Different Grouping for UBE report

Is it possible to have processing options that can change a report to group
data according to different fields. I have a request for a report to be
"grouped" by different fields on a report and I'm wondering if this is
possible. I will probably be using a tabular report type.

I'm not sure if this is possible since I have to specify the sort and
grouping parameters when I design the report.

Create multiple versions for the UBE, one for each sequence. In Batch
Version/Advanced design each version, overriding the data sequence and
breaks.

Create a section and have it look at your processing option fields in the
Initialize Section. Based on the processing option fields use the Do Custom
Section to call the appropriate section(group, columnal etc) needed and use
the set user selection and set data sequencing system functions to sort and
retrieve the data needed. For each section go to properties, Advanced, and
click the Conditional box.

Hi Mike,
I amn't really experienced in RDA but I know a trick how to control level breaks. Generally it works if the relative order of your grouping needs doesn't change.

1.) Set up your sequence for all possible grouping with level breaks.
2.) Create Report Variables for all grouping field.
3.) Save the BC (Business Column) values into the RVs (Report Variable) in the "Before Level Break" event of your primary section.
4.) Change BC values to a constant literal value for every field where you don't want level break in the "Before Level Break" event of your primary section.
5.) Use everywhere in the report the backup RV values instead of BC values for the affected fields.

It works. You can examine this method in R04570 Create Payment Control Groups UBE.
I hope, it could help.
