My question is about gridviews.  I have two names associated with each row & instead of putting them in different columns I would like them to be in the same column but separate lines in the row.  Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I believe that you would have to do some custom extension to the gridview.  By default the gridview does not support header merges..   It sounds like that is what you are trying to do.  You could always look at infragistics controls that support column merging.

is it like First Name and Last Name columns, and you want to show the Full Name instead by merging data from these two cols ?
and it is a Windows App is it ?

Yes it is a Windows App.  Here's what I need:

Team 1      Player 1
                 Player 2
-----------------------------------------------
Team 2      Player 1
                 Player 2
-----------------------------------------------

I've been thinking about it & it seems like the way to do it might be to use color to make it look like it is 1 row when it really is 2.

Take a look at this blog.  It describes this functionality.  I think it is setting the rowspan value.
