    Note: Line item grouping can be used with report scripting to control which line items are printed. For more information, refer to SalesPad Reports documentation or contact your Account Manager to discuss getting a resource.
    Note: A line item’s associated tab on each document is found in the ITEMCODE column on the SOP10200 table.
