How to: Insert or Delete a Column (Report Builder 2.0)

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.
