How to manually select and insert data fields in a report table
In BIRT Studio, press Ctrl, and in Available Data, select each data field to insert in the table, then choose Insert. Figure 1-21 shows an example of three data fields, Country, Product Line, and Order Total, inserted in the report table.

Alternatively, drag the data fields and drop them in the table. The order in which you select the data fields is important because they appear in the report in the order of selection. For each data field you insert, a column appears in the table, displaying up to 50 values. Notice that the data field names, COUNTRY, PRODUCTLINE, and ORDERTOTAL appear at the top of each column. These items are called column headers, and BIRT Studio creates them when you insert data fields in a table.
