    This is the main report that gets displayed in the Viewer at run time. It uses the BandedList and Textbox controls, and the Subreport control inside the BandedList data region to display data.

    The BandedList data region uses two groups to group the report data by the fields City and Country.

    The Subreport control, placed in the GroupFooter section of the BandedList, displays the CountrySales report.
