Format Question - Biz Objects

I created a report with 8 data fields; I added a 9th column and included a formula that provides a 'status' for a given line item based on the data pulled within the report. There are three seperate statuses; I then inserted a break which now seperates my three statuses into groups by that status, which is exactly what I want. I can't figure out out to get a 'heading' above the three groups though. Since I created a formula for the column of 'status', it won't let me drag that column heading to 'drop here to create a section' when I am in view structure mode . I would simply like to be able to have a static heading above each section and have scoured the options/formatting/etc. Is that possible to do?

    Why can't you create a dimension variable for Status and create section on that variable ?

      No, Dimension didn't stick. I did, however, change the formula that I was using to drive the status. One of the objects in the formula was a measure; I used a different object that was a dimension in the formula and it then, in turn, allowed me to create the section header.

      Thanks for the help.
