Step 1: Select Custom Table and click Select and Continue.
Step 2: Set the Data Selection as follows, and click Add to layout:

  1. To setup the Custom table, click Add Column.
  2. Change Orion Object to Node, and select Caption.
  3. Change Orion Object to Component, and select Name.
  4. Click Current Component Statistic on the left side, and select Statistic Data.
  5.  Click Add Column.
  6. Set Group Results By to Caption - Node.
  7. Click Submit.
  8. Click Add Content.

Step 1: Select "Custom Table" and click "Select and Continue".
