Dimension breakdown in break footers

Hello everyone,

I'm facing the following task in WebIntelligence (4.1 SP6):

I have three dimensions in the report: [Region], [District], [Product] and a measure [Sales]. The customer wants to see a table with these three dimension, sorted by Region -> District -> Product. And then the customer wants to see a subtable for Region -> "Total sales" -> Product for each of the regions. However, when I attempt to insert the Product dimension into the Region break footer, it results in #MULTIVALUE.

To make the question clearer, this is the expected result:

Region | District | Product | Sales

R1 | D1 | P1 | 50

R1 | D1 | P2 | 100

R1 | D2 | P1 | 120

R1 | D2 | P2 | 180

R1 | Total | P1 | 170 -->

R1 | Total | P2 | 280 --> these two rows should be in Region break footer

R2 | D3 | P1 | 20


and so on, with the table footer containing a breakdown for each product:


Total | | P1 | 900

Total | | P2 | 750

The only option I see now is to turn Region into a section and to place a second table under the first one (in the example above, the first four rows), with sums for each product per region (above, the first two rows in bold), and place a third table with totals for each product outside the section (the last two rows).

But isn't there some easier solution, that would simply use break footers to achieve this result?

Best regards,
