What type of database object?  How did you add it?

Place Group and Remove Group are in the Object menu.  You need to turn on
the "behave as background" checkbox in the group properties palette.

Browser.  You can add objects to group by copying them in, or ungrouping and
then immediately regrouping with the new objects.
