Any field that appears in the user interface must belong to a field group. You must always use field groups to design your forms.
Standardized group names are as follows:
ModuleName (for example 'Ledger')
The fields placed there should be the ones that the user expects to print when they first click Print on the File menu. The fields used for the TitleField1 and TitleField2 properties are often candidates for this field group.
