Built-In Report Writer -- Group by Opportunity

My company uses ACT! 2011 Pro and I am having an issue creating a report.  Basically, I need a Contact report grouped by Opportunity and I was wondering if the built in report writer was capable of producing this and how to go about it.

 

I saw a prebuilt report that grouped opportunities by contact, but I want the opposite of that.  I tried to build it like this:  in the detail section i put the Opportunity Name field and the OpportunityID field and then a subreport linked by OpportunityID.  In the subreport detail I put the Contact Name Field. But when I run that report it comes out completely blank.

 

Ideas?

 

Thanks,

What you're trying can't be done with the ACT! reports.

 

There is a third party book with comprehensive training information on the ACT! reports, here is the link.

Thanks Roy.  Back to the drawing board I guess.
