3 Webinar - Mar 2011McGyver - David Smith3 Business Requirement Our business group needs a purchase report that: Lists detail values (date, extend cost, qty, etc) grouped by region, vendor, and product type At each change in vendor, display on one line beneath the detail the total sales tax for all purchases from the vendor for the period selected as free text. Under the sales tax subtotal line, display a subtotal of the extended cost for each product type purchased from the vendor for the period selected as free text. The number of lines is dynamic and could range from 1 to 100 based on the product types purchased during the period selected. On one line, under the product type subtotals, display the Total Extended cost for the Vendor for all detail lines as free text. HTML, PDF, Excel formats Must be efficient.
