I have a list of tasks... I would like to SORT by [Due Date] but GROUP by [Stage]... I haven't been able to find a way to sort on one field but group on another.

I want my tasks to show in this report as:

Preparation

      Task 1      Due 2015-09-01

      Task 2      Due 2015-09-10

Implementation

      Task 3      Due 2015-09-20

      Task 4      Due 2015-10-01

Testing

      Task 5      Due 2015-10-12

Do you mean you want to first Group by [Stage], then sort within each group by [Due Date]?

(your example is doing that)

You can add multiple levels of Grouping, then Sorting - within your report settings.  (Customize your report)

You'd want something like:

sort and group from low to high by [Group] grouping by "Equal Values"

sort from low to high by [Due Date]

Here's the online help on sorting and grouping in reports - the "Sorting and grouping example" shows a grouping, then sorting example.
