How to: Insert or Delete a Column (Reporting Services)

You can add or delete columns in a Tablix data region. The Tablix data region can be a table, a matrix, or a list. The following procedures do not apply to the chart and gauge data regions.

In a Tablix data region, you can add columns that are associated with a group (inside a group) or that are not associated with a group (outside a group). A column that is inside a group repeats once per unique group value. For example, a column inside a group based the value in a data column that contains color names, repeats once per distinct color name. For nested groups, a column can be outside the child group but inside the parent group. In this case, the row repeats once for each unique value in the parent group.

To select a data region so that the row and column handles appear

  • In Design view, click the upper left corner of the Tablix data region, so that column and row handles appear above and next to it.

    For more information about data region areas, see Working with Tablix Data Regions.
