Grouping of Files by Column

  Asked By: Amos    Date: Dec 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1056

I have a document library that has a category column with the following values:
Business, Personal, Private. I need to group the documents by these values. I
have to allow a user to assign multiple values for a particular document, this
means a document is shown in different groups. For example, Document A will show
under the Business group as well as the Personal Group. When I change this
column to allow multiple values, I no longer see this column in the grouping
section. Does anybody know why this is happening? Is there a way for me to show
a document under different groupings?

By default you can't group  on a multivalue column  because it would require
showing the doc in two groups  at the same time when there is only one record.
You can't sort on multivalue either.
