Hi,

Question...
How can I have multiple lines (or rows) in header in DataGrid?
For example, I want to display like...

                           |       Quantity Sold       |      Quantity Available   |
Product | Customer | Date1 | Date2 | Date3 | Date1 | Date2 | Date3 |

Thanks for your help!

Here is another way to do it:

<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="1" align="center">
<tr>
<td>Product</td>
<td>Customer</td>
<td>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="1" align="center">
<tr>
<td colspan="3" align="center">Quantity Sold</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Date1</td>
<td>Date2</td>
<td>Date3</td>
</tr></table>
</td>
<td>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="1" align="center">
<tr>
<td colspan="3" align="center">Quantity Available</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Date1</td>
<td>Date2</td>
<td>Date3</td>
</tr></table>
</td>
</tr>
</table>

I am using DataGrid in .NET...
I wish I could just use the table though :)

From your original post, I assume you already have a datasource specified for the datatable?

Try this...

<asp:DataGrid id="DataGrid1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False">
      <Columns>
            <asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Quantity Sold">
                  <ItemTemplate>
                        <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
                              <tr>
                                    <td nowrap>
                                          <asp:Label runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.Date1") %>' Width="40" ID="Label1"></asp:Label>
                                          <asp:Label runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.Date2") %>' Width="40" ID="Label2"></asp:Label>
                                          <asp:Label runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.Date3") %>' Width="40" ID="Label3"></asp:Label>
                                    </td>
                              </tr>
                        </table>
                  </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:TemplateColumn>
            <asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Quantity Available">
                  <ItemTemplate>
                        <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
                              <tr>
                                    <td nowrap>
                                          <asp:Label runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.Date1") %>' Width="40" ID="Label4"></asp:Label>
                                          <asp:Label runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.Date2") %>' Width="40" ID="Label5"></asp:Label>
                                          <asp:Label runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.Date3") %>' Width="40" ID="Label6"></asp:Label>
                                    </td>
                              </tr>
                        </table>
                  </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:TemplateColumn>
      </Columns>
</asp:DataGrid>

note: I added the table inside the template to allow you to specify 'nowrap' on the <TD>
