I have my data in a dg.  But the last column which is is long text, but very descriptive, I would like to show once, and have it act as a header for the 1,3,50 items below.

"ONE SPEED - TWO GEAR - MECHANICAL SHIFT"
data 7 columns wide for maybe 20 rows.  

then put in the next Order by instance:

TWO SPEEDS - FORWARD & REVERSE                                                                                                                                    
data 7 columns wide with 3 rows.

and so on.

Is this possible?  
Currently I have the data in a ds and only 1 table.  The Groupby text comes from another table in teh database I could have that in the ds if needed.

TIA.

AFAIK, this is not possible with the very primitive data grid control.  There are much better controls, like Janus, Sheridan, and ComponentOne grids that might be able to perform this way.

The Infragistics control line is also very good for this kind of thing.
