How to create a customized column for a report

Dear Salesforce Community,

I am currently working on a report and was wondering if there is a way where we could make a customized column for account numbers. For instance if one looks at the picture below I have the columns for the account name date modified etc.I would like to create a column for "Account Numbers" that corresponds to each account name. Request if you could pelase assist and advise.
 For each of the account names there is an account number affiliated.

Thank You.

Hi Administrator,

Reports are read only data in salesforce.You cannot create a column with input field.
If you have corrosponding data for each account record then you have create a new field/formula field on account which can be referred 
in the report.

I guess this is what you are looking for..?

1. Drag and drop the 'Account Number' field from the left pane to right.
2. Select the drop down arrow next to the 'Account Number' field and select 'Group By this Field'.

3. After you run the report you can see the results are grouped by 'Account Number' like below.
