Group portions of report into sections with titles
This component groups portions of the report into sections. Each section has a title and content.
The following rules apply to this component:
Child components appear inside the section created by this component.
Selecting the Get title from first child component check box prevents this component from accepting paragraph-level children. In this case, this component's first child must be a Text component.
This component can have Chapter/Subsection components as its children.
Sections can be nested. There are seven levels of nesting possible. The seventh nested section in the report is untitled, although the child components of this section include information into the report.
Chapter and subsection numbering depends on the template you

text. Name them in the form
