The instructions in section 4.9.1 Example of Using Spreadsheet Layout are missing a critical step when following the instructions to Add an element to a column, page 66.

Instructions guide you to:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"1. In Outline view, select the Column Footer.
2. In Properties view, set the Height to 16px and press Enter.
3. In Outline view, expand the fields node, then drag ORDERID to the column footer. The TextField Wizard
is displayed.
4. In the TextField Wizard, select Count, then click Finish. The ORDERID field is added to the column
footer.
5. Select the $F{ORDERID} field in the Detail band, and the $V{ORDERID1} element you want to add, then
right-click the $V{ORDERID1} field and select Add to Column.
The element you select is added to the column. Now if you resize one of the elements, all three elements
resize together."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note that before step 5 you need to right click on $V{ORDERID1} and choose arrange in container/spreadsheet layout before "Add to Column" can be selected.

Also note that for all elements to be linked the header, detail field and the $V{ORDERID1} need to be selected before "Add to Column" is used.
