Organizing columns into categories
If an information object contains a large number of columns, you can group the columns into logical categories. For example, organize Address, City, State, Postalcode, and Country columns under a category named Customer Address. Without this categorization, the address-related columns are scattered throughout the list of columns.
Figure 14-3 shows a comparison of columns that are organized in categories with columns that are not categorized, as they appear in BIRT Studio.
