This blog explains how to do grouping in the RDLC Report in Microsoft Dynamics Business Central or NAV. There are two steps involved: designing the data set and using the Report Builder to set the grouping.
When you need to design a layout for a report, using VSCode, when creating an extension, as you might already know, you have the choice between using Report Builder and Visual Studio. And you can use both of them at the same time, which enables you to combine the advantages of both environments when designing RDLC report layouts.
At my latest Development course, we went through the report designer in Visual Studio, and I realized that not everyone knows the little tricks that can make development much easier: Don’t close Visual Studio Closing Visual studio every time the report is tested, is wasting a lot of time. Visual Studio takes a long time to start and keeping it open all the time you save the time opening it again and again.
When you build RDLC reports in Dynamics NAV, you can choose between 5 different output types, also known as rendering extensions:
•Preview (HTML-like, Soft Page-Break)
•Print (Hard Page-Break)
•PDF (Hard Page-Break)
•Word (Soft Page-Break)
•Excel (Soft Page-Break)
This tool can change font family, size, padding and others. This tool will help you to change all settings at one time.

RDLC reports can have performance issues occassionally. Microsoft is aware, and has been enhancing report performance in every release since this became an issue. In this blog, I will explain how you can use a small feature in RDLC reports called “labels” to optimize performance.
