Organizing reports by category groups

Is there a way to organize reports by category groups ? I like to assign my expense categories to either a discretionary or a non-discretionary category group and it would be nice if I could print reports organized by these categories. Simply selecting category groups to be included in a report does not cause the reports to be organized by the category groupings. As of now, the only solution I can find is to print two reports, one using only the discretionary group and one using only the non-discretionary group.

    All that does is include the category groups in the report. The results are still reported in terms of income and expense. I'd like to see the report organized by category group, e.g., discretionary and non-discretionary.

    I suspect you're having difficulty understanding the instructions provided.  For example:
    1. Select Reports > Banking > Bank Summary
    2. Press Alt + C
    3. Select Category Group in the Organization: pull-down menu
    4. Select OK

    Turns out the problem is not all reports give you the option of reporting transactions by category group, which is determined by the Organization setting in the Display tab. Bank Summary reports do, Income and Expense reports don't.

    The instructions do say summary, comparison, and budget reports twice.

    This Does not work. I do not see Category Group as an option under "Display" within the Banking Summary Report

    Have you created a category group?
