    I have a table with several columns. Some of the rows have repeating data in their columns. Using Row Groups, I can group the data like so:

    Patter

    No Edit options for posts? Weird.

    Anyway....

     

    Pattern     Width

    1                0.1

                      0.5

    2                1.5

                       .4

                      1.1

    3                1.2

    With Row Groups, I can hide the repeating pattern numbers. However, I have some data (a message) that sometimes needs to be posted above the pattern number and span all the columns. like

    Pattern      Width

    Message about pattern 1
    1                0.1
                      0.5
    2                1.5
                       .4
                      1.1
    A message about pattern 3.
    3                1.2            

    How do I create a table with merged cells above the Parent Group? Or, is there some another way to show this data?

    Hi Joe,

    Check the sample attached demonstrating the scenario you described. 

    The main idea is to insert additional row (right-click on Pattern detail cell -> Add row -> inside group above) and set cells' borders to 'None' in the required area.
    Optionally, you can hide the row without any data using conditional formatting.


    If your scenario or data is different please open a new support ticket where you can send us a sample report with your current settings and test data so we can give you further suggestions.

    I'm running version 8.2.14.1204, and it won't open the file :-(

    I'll play around with the idea you outlined.

    Thank you VERY much for your help!

    Thanks Katia, you've been a tremendous help!

    I would still like to merge and display each message across all columns (and center it nicely), but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that. However, adding an "Inside Group - Above" to a cell has solved the biggest part of our problem.

     

    Thanks!

    Hi Joe,

    Unfortunately, merging the cells from different column groups is not supported. You can only merge cells within the same group group.

    You can also test using groups and TextBoxes instead of Table item and placing the detail information into Detail section and message into GroupHeader section.
