Follow this process in order to create a band (formerly called a sub-band in older versions of Report Designer), which allows you to group several report elements into a single area.
- Drag and drop a band element into a layout band.
- Using the resize handles, change the size of the band to fit your specifications.
- Drag and drop an existing report element into the new band and position it according to your preference.
- Drag and drop other elements into the band as necessary.
You should now have a layout band containing several report elements. It can be resized or moved anywhere in its parent band, or cut-and-pasted into another band.
